3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draft. Bottles. 03/2006) I liked this better than the XX. Dark, slightly hazy amber. Spritzy. Big, lasting head. Citrus hops aromas. Bitter on the back-end. A slightly acidic note plays with the sweet ethanol notes evident in the background. Maltiness is completely subdued. Big, citrus bitterness on the back-end with notes of pine and grapefruit. Medium body, smooth palate, dry finish. Tasty.

Superb hazy opague golden color. Upon opening it overflowed from the throat of the bottle ceaselessly with pillowy foam. Excellent example of Belgian cheesy sharp yeast. Strong character. Excellent flower notes in nose and smooth on the alchohol at 8.5% Excellent all around.

Pours a light orange straw color. The nose is of orange and clove. Up front sweet malt dominates. On the finish, slightly sour orange gives way to woody hoppiness and orange blossom. The finish is what makes this strong ale, which is otherwise average.

pours orangish-yellow color with a nice white head. foamed up a bit because some dirty hippie stole our corkscrew and we had to use an i-hook thingamajig. aroma of yeast, funk, and citrus. taste is unbelievably good and palate makes me want more. does de ranke produce a bad brew? i think not.

One strange brew, but damn delicious. Clearly a multi-dimensional yeast is used, because there is some serious funk in here. Some bretta, etc. It’s perfectly tart, very fruity and leaves my mouth wanting more and more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeasty nose, beautiful orange-gold color with a luscious spongy head that sticks around. Sweet orange flavored malt with vanilla undertones. Corriander and pepper spiciness. Bitter grassy end with a complex hop blend. Stingy bitter. Mediumbody, gritty mouth feel. Bold beer, fairly complex. Give it a chance - it gets better as it warms.
