3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle into a tulip at Hopleaf...The beer pours a nice medium honey gold with tons of carbonation. At least fourt fingers of creamy thick head, had to pour three times...Great retention, as it falls, falls in chunks, nice lacing...The aroma is all yeast, a little honey, pepper, very similar to Duvel with that tingly yeast on the nose....Taste is light, but very sweet honey dominates. Not any of the yeasty. This is crazy easy to drink at 10%, I basically chugged it. A little sweet for my taste but good overall.

11.2oz grenade bottle. Opaque, unfiltered orange-tan. Thin, patchy, oily head. I get a a fruity tone in the aroma foreign to most beers, almost candied strawberry banana. Quite a nice beer, relatively mellow mouthfeel, some delicate carbonation. Somewhere between a Tripel, Golden Ale, but with those fruity tones in the taste as well that really mellow it out. Almost like Imperial Cider, with the alcohol laced green apple notes. Interesting, unique beer.

Sampled at the Stillwater tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits last month. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Smells sweet and syrupy, but there is some tart fruit and a little baby puke in there too. Flavor starts malty and a bit syrupy, then some tartness shows up before a musty and somewhat thin finish.

Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Starts strong, modest alcoholic, a bit sourish. Fruity notes of lemon. Finish still a bit alcoholic, but still nicely fruity. Not bad!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 This was a gusher for me. Normally, I’d be upset but it did fill my house w/ a nice fruity yeasty smell. Not bad. Naturally, it poured quite a cloudy blond orange w/ an huge foamy head which slowly sank down to a lasting quarter inch. The nose, as I mentioned is quite fruity, juicy banana w/ an edge of green apple tartness. Normally, I expect gushers to be flat but the mouthfeel on this is downright creamy. Full bodied but pillowy w/o being syrupy or oily. This a hefty beer, clocking in at nearly ten percent alcohol, but it is super drinkable w/o being disappointingly light in flavor. After expecting to be let down w/ a flat and sour beer, this turned out the be very nice.

02/01/2011 - 33cl bottle @ home (2011-2)
Little cloudy dark yellow to orange amber beer. Thick off-white head, quickly reduces to thin head, then stable. Lots of carbon in glass supporting the head. Aroma: fruity, a little bit of green apple, yeast. MF: nice sparkling, medium body. Taste: sour apples, yeast, sour berries, a bit of sweet malts. Aftertaste: sour pineapple and some hops. Ok, but you have to know the beer is supposed to be sour, I though it to be infected at first.

Bottle. [thanks Søren/Feldthaus]
Clear pale golden, slight haze. Small, bubbly, white head. Looks a bit like a citrus soda-pop. Aroma is sweet, vinious, green apple, mild sherry, pineapple, biscuity malts. High carbonation, actually kind of thin mouthfeel - especially for the ABV. Flavour is fairly elegant. Good green apples, some fine maltiness balanced by good yeasty notes. Pineapple and mild bitterness in the finish. Actually quite good for a citrus soda-pop :o)
