3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2006 Bottle - Gusher Alert! This thing went off like a firecracker on the 4th of July. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a a large foamy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of green apple, banana, some sourness, spicy, Belgian yeast, barnyard and a general overall fruitiness.
Aroma reminded me of some of the Jolly Pumpkin beers (gushing did too). Flavor of Belgian yeast, spices, overly carbonated. Carbonation actually kind of covers up some of the flavors that are in here. As this one aired out I got more citrus, tropical fruits, very light sourness with some hop bitterness and on the dry side.

An aroma of clove and a bit of yeastiness. An almost orange pour with a huge foamy head. This baby continues to fizzle to the head 5 minutes after the pour. Just a hint of the clove in the flavor. Some apple tries to sneak in there ahead of the bitter. There is just a hint of an off flavor in this beer that keeps me from rating it a little higher in the flavor. The palate is like it should be except the faominess is a little soft. A good beer overall.

12 oz bottle, 2006. Turned out to be quite a foamer. Caught me by surprise when the suds pushed out after uncapping. Fuzzy brown orange with a dense ivory head. Banana caramel; like a tripel in nose. Fizzy apricot and apple juice. Dries with sourdough bread and allspice.

Bottle. Pretty bland. Notes of honey and alcohol, but pretty nondescript overall.

Poured honey colored with a fluffy dirty white head. Some floaties were present. Aroma was yeast, floral notes, and sweet fruits. Flavor is sweet fruits, some orange peel, and a hint of cardboard. Finish is dry and floral.

iím not a big belgian fan, so my apologies.... itís a solid beer that is as authentic as an american over the top rendition could be. complex flavors from the belgian yeasts end in a nice bitter hop note, but not overwhelming

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2010 2006 edition bottle (Year printed on label neck). Sour Flemish smell underneath the cap. Sun filtered brown in a goblet, thin ring of foam. Sweet light malts in the taste, but also a nice dryness. Hints of orange, perhaps some coriander, either added or created by the yeast. Melded with sharp European hop notes. Very tasty and worthy of the styleÖ and the beer Iím drinking as the Bears just punched their tickets to the SUPER BOWL!!!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Pours a golden color with yeast sediment floating about. Aroma is a large amount of citrus with the main component being lemon with large amounts of belgian spice, malt, and other mild citrus notes. Taste is a bit more sweet then I like in my belgians. There is also bit of earthiness and dryness in this beer. Overall, itís a good beer but not for my palate. Michael Jackson, you lied to me about this beer.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly hazy orangish gold. Extremely fine, bright white head starts at an inch or so and settles to an incomplete cap.
Simply stunning nose! Bright crackery malt, lemony citric hops, and a hearty whack of bretty barnyardy goodness fill the nose. Mouthwatering stuff.
Medium light in the mouth Waves of dry lemony malt arrive, and are amply supported by wicked acidity and complex earthy barnyard flavors. Outstanding length. Great, great beer here.
Extremely fine carbonation keeps this light and lively, though it does have a slight drying effect on the palate. Perilously drinkable, wonderful with food, and a wholly captivating beverage. Bravo! 2006 Release.
