The aroma is sweet malty with notes of corriander. The color is an unclear dark orange-red and it has a fine off white head. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of corriander. The carbonation runs over the tongue before it ends on a dry hoppy note.

Light amber colour. Cloudy. Aroma shows a little lactic acid, lemon, passion fruit and grapefruit. Very yeasty body. Slightly dry and bready. Where were those citrus notes I was promised? Not bad, but not Dany’s best.

Pours a murky dark amber color with a small off-white head. Heavy on the cardboard aroma and lots of blue cheese. A bit of caramel, toast, and yeast. Maybe some pepper. Sweet caramel flavor followed by lots of cardboard.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I don’t need a corkscrew for this beer, the cork comes out by itself! Light ornage brown color, hazy because of the tiniest particles of yeast. Hops, apple, coreander and caramel in the aroma. Hoppy, herbal flavor with caramel, coreander and hints of ginger. Herbal bitter aftertaste. With more restraint in the use of herbs, this would be a great beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, deep amber ale with a huge, frothy, vanilla head. Terrific retention. Excellent, ink-blot lacing. Fruity, spicy aroma. Well-bittered, spicy flavor with notes of lemon, grapefruit, buttermilk and mango or passion fruit... I tend to confuse the two. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Mid-length, dry, spicy finish.
