ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUL 22, 2007
Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! On tap @ the fest. Nose of dried fruit, wheat & alcohol, smoke & vanilla. The beer is sparkling copper. The fully lasting off-white head leaves good lace. The brew is spicy & peppery with high acidity and a brief finish. The full creamy body is lively, the finish feels dry.

On tap at Old Chicago. Very intersting beer with plenty of hops, some citrus flavor. Very good carbonation and yeasty taste.

Pours a golden orange color with a lacy white head. Aroma is floral hops with yeast and citrus characteristics as well. Candy sugar somewhat detectable. Taste is citrus up front, but the yeast, sugar, and fruit characteristics come shining through in the end. This is a very subtly complex beer and a wonderful offering from Goose Island.

EithCubes (5485) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 2006 Bottle. Yeasty nose with orange and citric zest, touch of candy sugar and lots of wet fruit. Really an incorrigible gusher, caught all of this one, though. Hazy-opaque goldenish orange with a strong carbonation tornado in the middle and a huge, yeast-driven, lacing, rocky, spoonable beige head. Taste a nice balance of acidity, bitterness, and light sweetness, malt and fruit with yeast. Crisp medium+ body, prickling but very soft. Aftertaste is yeasty and very dry, faint perfume notes linger on. Orvallish but not quite on the same level; still an excellent go.

A big bottle from Feb 2014 here at over eighteen months and the evaluation is clear: not Orval, but still pretty good! The horse and straw character isn’t as strong, very slightly metallic, hops are dead at this age, but it’s clean, bone-dry, and maintains a hint of soft maltiness. A darker orange-brown, refreshing, and clean, despite the obvious provenance. [2015.08.22: 3.7]

Bottled. Dark amber coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Malty with notes of yeasts, citrus, caramel and also have a floral feel to it.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Dark coppery colored, medium sized white head. Cloudy appearance. Yeasty aroma with some Netherland-yeasty tones, flowers also there with lemony fruitiness. Medium bodied. Flavor is even richer with these hoppy-flowers, yeast in sweet aftertaste too.

oh6gdx (24928) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2007
Bottled (thanks heemer77!). Hazy golden orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is hayish hops along with some weirdly dryish notes. Flavour is skunked hops with some really flowery hints. Also some wooden and spicy notes in it as it warms up a little bit. A very mouthdrying thing.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 On tap at the Met, was great-- true illustration of a true Belgian style. Rich aromas, deep alcohol flavours, some citrus in the finish.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle sampled with Mad_indian, from a trade with Ohiodad. Pours Golden with an orange hue. Aroma of spices, belgian style yeast, and fruit. The flavor is smooth, sweet, fruit, spices, yeast, and a good hoppy finish.

MadIndian (2720) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus, courtesy of an ohio dad trade. Cloudy orange pour with tiny head. Bread, spice and malt aroma. Taste was good but it was mising something. It fell a little flat for me. Not a bad brew but no WOW factor !
