4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big thanks to Brigadier for this trade. Effervescent gold pour with a large foamy white head. Aroma has great travel, citrus and dry champagne. Fruity flavor, peachy more than anything else, balanced by an overall dryness. Lemon, clove, and wild yeast creaminess play supporting roles. Worty wheat character comes through on the finish. Very active, lightly astringent palate. Excellent Orvallish golden ale, slightly less complex in its fruit character than the original, but very much a pleasure.

Bottled. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is grapefruit, some mild spices, sour wood andf mild earthy notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, citrus, some yeast and mild spices. Balanced, and actually rather refreshing, even though itís a rather big beer.

Savor. The guy pouring it, said that this was a young batch, and as it ages, it takes on a good sour flavor. I didnít get much out of this young beer. I need to try and find an older batch.

Drank it with Alessandro out of a bottle. Itís rather complicated. We were really ambivalent: itís rich, exceptional, and has much to tell. BUT: itís too unbalanced, noisy, there is to much yeast in the nose. We compared it with 12 tone music. Itís strange, unusual, itís beyond reach. We didnít fully understand it.

Bottle share @ Surly Darkness day 2013. Hazy orange/yellow with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is brett, wheat germ, grapes, and spice. Flavor is a bit sweeter - caramel malt, brett, wheat grain, earth, musty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Big Brew Beer Festival (Morristown). Poured a clear yellow color with a big foamy white head. Aroma of sweet tangerine skins, light citrus, wheat, and yeast. Taste mimics the nose with tangerine skins, sweet citrus, wheat, and a hint yeasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to taster (thanks to Tom at Neonís for the pour!). Looks good; a hazy lemon with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; mild Belgian yeast (almost saison-ish) and notes of citrus zest and mild spices. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel thatís on the dryer side. A nice example of the style.
