4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2010 10 month old bottle (BB 12/20011) Hazy golden body with a large, chunky white head, lasting with sticky lace. Big hoppy, floral, herbal nose with notes of bread, honey and horseblanket. The flavor is fairly dry, moderately bitter with apricots, herbs, grass, hay and dough. Medium body is soft with moderate, but gentle carbonation. Outstanding.
19 month old bottle (best before 09/2013). Insanely dry, super hoppy with tons of dank, funky brett. Seriously, how can beer be any better than this?!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2008 Gorgeous golden pour slightly cloudy with silky bubbles and a large white frothy head. Be careful when opening... mine sat still for couple weeks but went off like a bottle of bubbly. Metallic aroma, spicy, lots of hops, and lots of yeast like in a lambic, dusty. Sweet candi sugar and loads of noble hops and yeast, well balanced, super bitter. Palate is appropriate for taste. Unique

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy gold colour with a big, rocky white head that left tonnes of lacing. Aromas of yeast, pear and piney hops. The flavour was grassy with some sweet malt and a huge, bitter finish. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazy, yellowish golden body. Seemingly infinite streams of rapidly soaring bubbles expose the obviously high carbonation level. Large, pillowy, snow white head with excellent retention. Only when the beer is 3/4 finished does the head finally settle to a thin film. Thick ribbons of lacing coat the glass. The aroma shows ample citrus hoppiness over a lightly sweet, yeasty background. Delicately toasted bready malts sneak their way into the nose, as does a hint of fresh cream. The flavor has a lightly toasted caramel malt base, with bitter, orange tinged hops, and a few drops of cream for smoothness. Medium body with a long, bitter, toasty finish. Intensely fizzy on the tongue, as the appearance suggests. Light and easy drinking. Very nicely done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden and opaque with a lively white head. Aromas of orange peel, yeast, barnyard and lavender. Very bitter throughout, with an outstanding, long finish. Earthy hops are strong and flavor the beer well. Just enough caramel and grain malt character to give the palate some balance. An aggressive, bold, beautiful ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth and pleasant aroma. A great pseudo English bitter from a Belgium brewery. A well-rounded easy drinking beer that should please most people.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out golden color with a moderate white head. Aroma is of floral hops and slight yeast. Flavor is up front hops with some funk/yeast and a nice floral hop bitter finish. Nice, refreshing and good flavor to boot.
