COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Heavily aromatic of fruit esters, citrus and underlying banana custard tones, Aureus is well attenuated with mellow rounded bitterness. Golden with a rocky white head, itís complex light-medium body and alcoholic strength adds a smooth warming character, which becomes more apparent at room temperature. It unlocks all of its secrets at cellar temperature and can be aged up to two years.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky yellow-gold color with a medium sized creamy white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was a lovey mix of sweet orange, tangerine and bread dough. The flavor flavor was very strong sweet sugar and tangy candied fruits - mostly pear, peach and orange with a strong yeasty and bready undertone and a hint of vanilla cream. Long finish of sweet and tangy candied fruits and just a touch of alcohol showing through at the edges. Thick body and amazingly creamy. Astounding!

I was interested when a friend of mine told me about this brewery. All I have to say is......WOW! This beer pours golden and slightly cloudy with huge aromatics of banana, briar and stone fruit. Very slight bubble gum. The taste is yeast product dominant with orange citrus tones and a dry finish. The warming alcohol is very well balanced with the bittering, but there isnít any hops evident in the flavor profile. Itís mostly dominated by the aromas of the yeast and very complex as it ripens with temperature. I am a huge Belgian fan and this beer definetly meets, if not exceeds, the quality beers coming from Belgium...I think itís better than Delirium Tremens and Duvel. True, I couldnít drink it all night, but itís a darn nice way to start the evening.

From bottle. Fruity and subtle sweet nose. Light tripel-like yeasty notes with some orange, vanilla, and coriander. Hazy golden amber with creamy-foamy white lacing head. Medium heavy body with medium carbonation and light warming. Starts and stays sweet with fruity character and notes of orange, honey, coriander, and a bit of vanilla. Carbonic acidity with a fruity acidic note, too. Sweet until the finish with mild hop bitterness and a light lasting fruit rind bitter after. Dregs add more fruity acidity - pops up front, then dull bitterness.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2012 ***FRESH***Bottle. The aroma of oranges hits first - and I donít mean citrus; I mean straight up oranges - then it fades to a light molasses and cinnamon scent. The appearance was a carbonated pour with a cloudy copper settled glass full, bronze core. One finger of a dense head settled into a silky even film that lasted the length of drinking. The palate was a smooth medium body, crisp finishing texture. I picked up on the banana custard taste first, a Belgian through and through, which pleasantly moved into a hint of vanilla and finished with that orange flavor. Very impressive first beer from this brewery. Iíll be hunting down more. ***6 MONTH OLD*** Fairly the same other than the orange note shifting to a peachy note, and the yeasty finish kind of rising a bit sharper.

750 ml bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head. A lemony yeasty belgian malt nose. The flavor is big dry fluffy yeast, banana, spices, lemons, zesty, mellow overall. Solid.

Dull, hazy, orange-brown, off white cover. Aroma is alcohol, orange peel, sweet malt. Taste is spritzy, oranges, almost a licorice like flavor, lightly yeasty.

12 ounce bottle pours a cloudy orangish color with aromas of citurs, banana, yeast, zest, and corriander. Flavors are the same, light fruity aspects with some belgiun yeast thrown in. Nice beer overall.

Bottle, poured a yellow orange, hazy color. Aroma of orange and coriander. Medium sweetness, light bitter. Medium head. Slightly creamy texture. Not to shabby.

Golden in color. Head was gone in seconds, but was full of crisp bubbles while it lasted. There was a very week nose. Taste was of banana and citrus almost like a hoppy wheat. Very enjoyable beverage.

This poured a cloudy darker golden color with a white head. Aroma was medium spices and esters, yeast and some coriander definitely. Flavor was a bit more complex than aroma, vanilla and orange peel are there slightly, sweet and spicey at the beggining and then bready on the finish. Definitely worth drinking, but a bit hollow. Glad to see this new brewery put out something decent on the first run.
