tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2008
12oz bottle. Bottled on 072705(3+ yrs old... sweet!) Definite tart pineapply brett on on the nose. Some spicy Belgian yeast. The hops are pretty much faded by now leaving an excellent pale malt base surrounded by tart, spicy and slightly funky yeast. Pours a hazed dark orange with a nice sized off white head leaving fairly sticky lacing down the sides of the glass. Head retention is excellent throughout the entire bottle. Flavor profile starts with a good dose of bready malt, a hint of grassy hops mid palate and a blast of tart and spicy yeast on the finish. Slightly earthy. Pineapple and mango (?). Agave nectar. Medium to full bodied with excellent carbonation. Finishes lengthy and dry. Quite a surprise. A very well balanced beer: malty, slightly hoppy, plenty yeasty with a pleasant alcohol character throughout. Nice. Thanks for the awesome vintage treat Joe!

Finally I get to try this...and it was worth the wait. MMMMMMM. Amber pour with a nice off white head that sticks around. Aroma is that of a great belgian. Yeast, toffee, fruit, and the flavor follows suit. Soft on the tongue, yeasty, sweet, malty and just delicious!

malrubius (2071) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 31, 2008
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Orange amber with lasting head. Spicy caramel orange tobacco yeasty aroma. Sweet malty toasted caramel and ripe fruit with tobacco spicy bitterness. Nice soft medium-full mouthfeel and medium-low carbo. I’m not sure why I had low expectations for this. This is an excellent beer.

Goblincat (387) - Westland, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Orange and amber describes the color well. The aroma is full of citrus, spice, and candy. The taste is a nice blend of prune, sugar, alcohol, malt, and a finish of yeast and clove. Very drinkable, but expensive.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Pours a golden orange amber color with a thin creamy off-white head. Aroma is mostly malty with somw fruit plum and raisin notes. There is also a tiny bit of spice that is mildly apparent. Flavor starts out sweet and very much caramel malts. Quickly hit by some raisin and dark fruit flavors before ending spicy and mildly hoppy also with some ginger. Medium body and soft carbonation. Good but not outstanding. Seems too dominant on the malts and doesn’t get that big presence.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Cellared bottle. Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells funky with some nice dry malty hints. Tastes perfumy and funky with some hints of dry malt and a touch of fruitiness on the finish.

That1Guy (2051) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2008
2006 bottle. Busted it out to celebrate my contribution to the presidential ticket 2008, aight? The head won’t go away. Very nice. Lots of bubblegum and yeast on the nose. Suggests a fruity flavor, but they hopped this generously, more in bittering than in flavor or aroma obviously. Balance is pretty good, almost there. See you tomorrow/hey Frank can I borrow/a couple of bucks from you/to go/waltzing Matilda.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2008
A Mes rate: bottle at Twickenham beer festival.
Orangey copper coloured with no head. Nice enough colour though. Huge sweet yeasty aroma with a ton of bread and some slight hoppage on top. Similar flavour. Like a solid US beer (I wrote bear in my notes...) with a shit load of Belgian yeast. Big sweet orangey notes with plenty of bread holding it up. Has a kind of marmalade on toast character. Not particularly complex but very tasty and enjoyable. Thanks to Westy Shane McBogan floppy hat with corks wearing ride a bike for 6 miles to say hi to his neighbour Knifey McSpoony Duff. Bit of a Goose?

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - OCT 27, 2008
Clear amber with a vanishing head. Nice fruity nose, especially apricots and oranges, some malt sweetness and yeast spiciness. Flavour is less than expected from such a peculiar aroma, but still a interesting ’’Belgian’’.

BeerBunker (898) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is of malts, yeast, spice, candi sugar, and caramel. Taste is very malty, with a big spiciness. Lingering spicy bread taste. Very enjoyable.
