UPDATED: JAN 11, 2012 Rated 2007-09-17 - Pours dark orange with a mostly receding light tan head. Aroma of bacterial fermentation, tart, lightly acidic, with sour grapes, orange, and the funk. Taste is tart, white grape, funky yeast. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and lightly tart with lively carbonation. This is a nice Orval clone, very impressed with this effort by Goose Island.

Rated on 2012-01-11 - Pours orange/amber with a thin wispy off-white head. Notes of dry caramel, wood, wine and clove. Medium to full bodied, dry finish, lightly alcoholic with soft carbonation.

Poured a deep translucent orange with a large, frothy, foamy slightly off white head. Aroma is crazy, spicy, yeasty, floral, with maybe a faint hint of ocean breeze in the back. Flavor is heavy on the yeast, banana, sweet candy and barnyard funk. Barnyard funk? Try this beer and you’ll learn the definition. The finish was a tad chalky, but flavors are clean. Very unique. I don’t typically like Belgian style ales, but this is as close to a true Belgian beer as you’ll find in America. All the others are imposters, this is an origional.

On tap at Goose Island Clybourne. This golden ale poured with a thin off-white head. There is a very nice combination of malt and hops that leaves a funky, but pleasant taste on your tongue. Carbonated and peppery mouthfeel.

Mc Chouffe trappist glass. Pours a massive lasting off-white head that sits atop a transluscent orange body. The aroma brings forth ripe fruity boquet citrus fruits, pear, and apple along with bready malts, barnyard funk and intoxicating, pungent yeast. The flavour has that charateristic yeatsy bubblegum taste, with grapefruit citrus, sweet grain, candy, peppery corriander spice and a velvety smooth mouthfeel. The finish is slightly alcoholic and warming with fruity, yeast esters. Job well done.

MHED (114) - lisle, USA - SEP 2, 2007
12 oz. bottle pours a dark amber, nice clarity and medium white head. Aroma is toffee like and fruity. faint pear and maybe bananas. Starts sweet with caramel, ripe summer fruit, bread, some peppery hop spice and a luscious mouthfeel. Steady flavor throughout ending the same way it starts with lingering belgian complexity.

2006 Bottle from Acertain. Thanks man. Beautiful hop aroma that reminds me of Orval, but not as pronounced. Same floral, sharp hops in the taste accompanied by a little pepper, citrus and backed well with malt. Not much sweetness, and you can’t taste the alcohol. I dig this.
