On tap at BW3. Yellowed out orange gold with thin white head. Apple cider astringency, light sweetness, Belgian fruitiness. Full mouth feel, not overly carbonated, decently viscous. Lightly sweet, fruity, not malty. Slightly malty finish. Fruity balanced aftertaste.

Hazy orange with an initially large white head. Aroma of hops and an earhty, herbal almost perfume scent. Flavor is very malty with lots of yeast character. Spicy hop finish. Complex and enjoyable, but not quite at the top.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poura hazy amber-orange color with a large, creamy, off white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, yeast, apples. Flavor is strange....yeast, sweet fruits, some spice I can’t quite distinguish, of course malt. Palate is medium-full, medium carbonation, syruppy, musty finish. Unique, but I’m not crazy about it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. 072705. Pours a beatiful orange, with 2 fingers of creamy white head. I smell strong cinnamon, with some citric accents. Tastes of cinnamon as well, along with bananas, oranges. Now this beer is just nice, very nice. Very well balanced, good heavy malts, followed with just enough hops. I haven’t had the 06 batch, but would like to try it next to the 05, because this is very tasty.

Pours hazy orange with a thin layer of head and minimal lacing. Soapy hop, mashed fermented apples and earthy yeast with a very faint citrus zest. And As PilsnerPeter pointed out an ’herbal dry finish with a hint of skunk’.

2005 bottle from Styles. I never had this??? Well, thanks for the recommendation Chris! Amberish colored, moderately hazy with floaties abounding. The bottle opened as a gusher @55 F. Slight horsey/funky aroma. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Really a soft/rich mouthfeel. Modest amounts of Brett. come into play in flavor, definitely complex tasting with malts, obvious hop additions and Brettanomyces coming into play. Nicely done!! A beer to find and cellar...
