3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled out of the bottle, thanks to John- Pours a clear golden color, small white head. Aroma is very pleasent, floral and spicy. Flavor is lots of belgian yeast, suprisingly light for 7%, hides the alcohol well. Spicy and well balanced.

GABF 2005. Big white head. Clear dark yellow. Delicate aroma is floral, hoppy. Bitter hops up front, followed by a rich earthiness with floral, bitter, cinnemon, spicy undertones. Very unique and incredibly drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2006 Mashed fruit and lightly spiced bread pudding in the aroma. Golden in color with a finger thick firm head. More bread pudding, but spicier in the flavor than smell. Has a sweetness that is more fruity than sugary and that pervades the whole affair. Very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Fiery golden, large rocky white head, spotty yet sticky lacing, moderate carbonation. Tart nose, much like a pixi stick, candyish. Sour fruitiness as well. Yeasty on the tongue, sourness is very mild, not as much as the nose suggested. Light sweetness. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Becomes somewhat thin on the backside. Smelled great, but didn’t follow through. Still enjoyable tho.   Thanks for sharing Facto!

Bottle tasted at Pitonka’s tasting
Clear bronze color with light sticky head and very light lacing. The nose is bright with hops and malt, very flavorful but clean and belgian in nature.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour was copper with a nice beige head. Not really thick. The look reminded me of Maple Syrup. Smell had syrup, corriander and honey. Very fruity flavor balanced out with a nice maltiness. Nothing wrong with this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden amber/honey body with a big beige head. Good bubbles and lacing. The aroma was malty, some honey, yeast, citric/acidic fruit, note of corriander. Good feel in the mouth. Gentle carbonation, smooth and a bit syrupy but more in the sense of a stickiness than a cloying sweetness. Flavor was not very complex: notes of yeast and fruit and spice but none to any dominant degree. Not too shabby.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange hue with moderate, but sticky lace - musty, tart, earthy aroma, with hints of lemon rind and pepper - herbal, spicy, saison-like - touches of banana, orange peel - pastry-like malt - spicy, peppery finish, with gentle hops - quite nice - if you told me this was made in belgium, I would believe you.

On tap at The Ginger Man, NYC. Copper color with white head. Fruity nose with notes of apricots and orange most prevalent. Medium bodied and heavily accented with fruit and hop flavors. Apricots and citrus shine in this one. Gentle hop finish that also features a touch of spice. Interesting beer.

Reminds me of Orval...What a great experimental effort by this brewer. Wonderful golden pour with shimmering copper highlights. Aroma is big, brash, and fruity. Sweet caramel malt base, strange fruit high notes with enormous floral hopping and unexpected bitter finish. Worth every dime I paid for it. (Gift from fellow Legionaire, Cornfield)
