pours golden with a nice white head. Smells of sweet spice, apple pie like. Tastes sweet, and spicy, hides the alcohol well

750ml bottle into a DFH signature glass. Bottled in 2010E. Thanks so much HopsMatt! A - Pours a crystal clear golden amber color with rising carbonation. Two fingers of soapy off white foam forms. Leaves behind a nice thick edging and a thin cap. Swirling creates a new beautiful cap and sticky lacing coats the walls of the glass. S - Starts off very herbal and floral. This fades into some ginger, coriander, lemon peel, and caramel biscuits . Very spicy with just a touch of sweetness. An odd aroma on the finish that is a bit offensive. Complex and interesting. T - Cardamon, Belgian yeast, banana, cloves, and spice. Lingering ginger flavor. Can’t say I detect any brandy notes, but the alcohol sure does warm things up on the finish. Very tasty. M - Medium bodied and well carbonated. The finish is somewhat dry which works well with the ginger. Comes off like a Belgian inspired ginger ale. O - A lovely beer that I honestly wasn’t expecting too much from. Its held up very well to the age, although I can only see it going downhill from here. I’ve had the FFF Popskull in the past and I remember liking that one. Curious how that one has held up.

750mL bottle, sent from coryking (thanks a lot, Cory), pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out the cardamom, lots of berries, some earth and subtle brandy oak notes. Flavour is subtler on the cardamom, at least at first, revealing lots of berry / fruit juice, candied sugar and slight oak, but the barrels are very far back. Extremely fruity, with the berries dominating. Quite sweet and not overly complex, with the cardamom and fruity sweetness lingering on the finish. Decent.

Poured from bomber. A: Pours deep golden, almost off-amber/orange with an dirty white head that dissipates quickly leaving a nice bubbly lace. S: The cardamom is so pronounced it dominates the other smells but I do pick up some sweet sugary, grassy notes as well. T: Again the cardamom hits you right away but it gets balanced out the typical Belgian sugar ale taste on the back end. The woody flavor is also present, but not as much as I would have liked. M: Medium body with good carbonation that leaves an oily film over the mouth. O: A good, but not great strong ale. I wish there was less floral and more ale, but it’s out of the realm of normal and something everyone has to try. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-08-2011

Bottled in 2010 Pours a hazy medium golden color with a smallish white head that quickly dissipates. Lots of floaties in the bottle and in my glass. Smells of spices mostly, I assume that strong in your face earthy herbal aroma is cardamom. There’s some orange peel and caramel, and yeasty esters that manage to get through, but honestly this smells more like grandma’s spice rack than a beer. The flavor doesn’t make this beer much better. There’s an initial sweet maltiness up front then we get the spice girls, then a bit of bready yeasty funk, a hint of grape skin and alcohol. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spicy mouthfeel. This is not the beer for me.

Patrickctenchi (3468) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Pours clear gold, small white head. Slightly vegetal scent, heavily spiced. Taste is softer.....cardamom...less harsh than aroma..some alcohol presents in backtaste. OK, just a bit over-gimmicked.

Bottle. Cardamom and eucalyptus aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Cardamom/cinnamon malt flavor with light bitter alcohol finish. Intensely spicy.

queenholly (2861) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Strong cardamom and light sweet aroma. Golden with a minimal white head, fine suspended sediment. Sweet malty and light cardamom flavor. Medium body, very dry finish. Cardamom was overpowering in the aroma, but more subdued and balanced in the flavor. Cardamom is such a strong flavored spice to begin with, and I think a light hand would have been in order. The cardamom dominated and kept other flavors from being able to shine through.

Not sure how this was fresh, but I think it's drinking great right now. Pours a clean orange with a nice whit head. Minimal lacing. Nose and taste is big on the spice- cardamon- the oakiness shows well too. I also picked up some notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. The malts, yeast, and light hops all balance nicely making this an easy drinking delightful brew. this brew could go nicely with a "white" meat meal, fish, veggies, or even with ice cream or what not as a dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
