3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly cloudy orange/amber with a minimal antique lace head. Not much aroma; some notes of wet grass. Somewhat sour off flavor, but yet none-the-less pleasant. Wild yeast and spiciness present as well. Nice effort.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 2008 Bottle:
Lightly hazed orange with a plume of yellow foam. The head lasts forever. A very fuddy yeast nose. Slight lemon and fresh herb aromas too. Seriously creamy and full flavoured. Crisp and light, refreshing and toffee flavoured. Tingly spices and burnt sugar. Darned delicious, restrained and easy.
Tap @ The White Horse:
Brown/orange with a ring o’ white head. Sweet candy aromas with a fruity twinge. Beautifully heady lemon and yeast flavour. Perfect smoothness with a slight tingle in there. Possibly my favourite Belgian style USA beer?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, at home. Poured mahogony brown with a small off white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of fruit and a distinct yeastiness. In the mouth the warmth of the alcohol allied with a lingering bitterness and the fruity taste made this a most acceptable beer,very much in the Belgium style.

Bottle. Medium high fluffy but lasting white head. Hazy amber body. Apple pear peach banana aroma, lovely. Heavily carbonated fruity dry hops bitterness with a dusty note. Long bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is there but hardly notice. What a nice surprise.
