Best before Oct 7, 2004. Sort of peppery yeasty aromas with mild citrus notes in there as well. Not really digging the smell too much. Honey orange color with lots of suspended yeast floaties and a smallish white head. Sort of a peppery bready start turning somewhat doughy with lots of sweetness to finish. I don’t know...this one is just sort of bland. Alcohol is hidden very nicely though.

(Best before 13.5.2004) Dark orange color, somehow cloudy color, medium beige head. Yeast in glass is obvious. Sweet, safty and yeasty aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is nice: caramel, sweet, mildly yeasty and spicy. Caramel lasts pretty long with notes of licorice in aftertaste.

Disappointing top-fermented barley beer, now withdrawn. Poured a rich amber colour with plenty of sediment and a fair-sized head that left a trace of lace. Melon notes in the ripe, fruity aroma. Some toasted malt. The palate is a little thin for the alcohol. It has winelike characters and a surprisingly gentle spicy finish. Brandy-like notes. Carries the alcohol well but it’s a little short on muscle. (Bottle)

Pours dark amber colour with a fine head. Nose has some cherry aroma. Flavor is very malty, bitter, very fruity with notes of sour lemons. Nice spicy finish - warming and very pleasant

11.2 oz bottle - Whip In Liquors, Austin., Tx. Pours a sediment filled dark orange with a thin, barely there white head. Aroma has some sweet notes, pick up bananas, some cloves and other fruits - overripe nectarines perhaps. Flavor has a canned fruit cocktail essence to it, kind of sweet but muffled. Nothing really jumps out - faint traces of peach, honey, and apricots. Mouthfeel is nice and sticky. Alcohol hidden well. Overall, a decent Belgian.

A deep golden color this beer is. Why am I sounding like Yoda? Well the aroma is quite floral with honey and caramel. The flavor is borderline cloying with some sticky honey, caramel, and cloves. This one has some basement dust stuff going on. Hmmm this one isnt anything really exciting at all really.

The Lure:
Coriander and honey fumes over a spring vegetable garden.

The Festivities:
Maple syrup runs over the weak yeast. A drop of milk chocolate and a coriander leaf go well together, but cannot retrieve the tired unity.

Comes free with your new pension plan.

Husky, grainy aroma has some marzipan-like nutty sweetness and some dark fruits, wisps of alcohol and some stale cardboard-like character. Hazy, copper-orange with plenty of floaties and a nice, small-bubbled white head that recedes to cover with patchy lacing. Sweet and fruity flavours anice but somewhat muted and subdued. Medium-light body is somewhat still in the mouth. Bottle (Best Before 09/04) enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere. Thanks, Kawa!

4 months past its best before date. Bottle-conditioned clear amber. Neglectable head. Very bready aroma, somehow hot caramel, brandy flavored fruits and grainy brown sugar form a rather husky nose. Fruit esters really become more obvious when in mouth making out peaches, pears and various stale fruits flavors, perhaps like fruits core in their bitterness. Light carbonation and thin body may have suffered from the bottle age.

from the bottle. poured a golden color with a off white head had good lacing. aroma sour, yeast, straw, skunky, some malts. flavor a strange sourness a lemon and a orange that not ripe, hints of malts, yeast, grapes a dryness in the mouthfeel. the sourness took a lot away for me. I sometimes like a little sourness in my beer but this was a little on the weird side
