UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Compared a 2010 and 2014 bottle side by side. Fresh bottle was a mostly clear golden orange with a persistent white head that settled to a film. 2010 bottle was very murky amber with same white head that settled to a ring and dollop. Aroma of 2014 has Belgian yeast fruitiness and some caramel sweetness along with slight coriander and phenolic note. 2010 aroma has tart apple and pear with a vinyl quality and hint of grain. Taste of fresh bottle has Belgian yeast fruitiness, clove, some toastiness and mild pepper. 2010 bottle has a mild tartness with some faint lemon and apple fruitiness, some grain and some cooked vegetable flavor. Mouthfeels are different also with new bottle being more creamy and full bodied while the older bottle is more crisp and carbonated with a lighter body. I much preferred the newer bottle to the older one and really enjoyed the 2014’s flavors. 2013 Pours a dark golden orange with big soapy head that sticks around and great lacing. Aroma of juicy fruit barnyard and clove spiciness. Taste starts with some sweet fruit like apricots, then the funkiness sets in mid palate with the clove and pepper. Decent amount of bitterness and a phenolic flavor. Medium bodied with an oily texture and lively carbonation. Finishes dry. Good but a bit too much of the phenolic flavor to make it a favorite. ---Jeremy H

Tselloufc88 (70) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle from Petaluma Market. Golden brown in colour with some carbonation. Aroma is of sweet strawberries, some plum and funky fruit yeast. Taste is a creamy mix of citrus fruits with a slightl belgian yeast taste in there. Some spice on the finish. This is really smooth, flavoursome and hides 7% really well.

bigcat03 (204) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Poured into a trappist glass; Hazy orange color with a frothy 1 finger head; aroma of citrus hops (orange and lemon), cloves, and a touch of yeast from the bottle conditioning; Taste is citrus up front with no bitterness fading to a very lightly bitter herbal aftertaste that lasts; Carbonation is lively and well balanced; Mouthfeel is on the full side of medium. An absolutely exceptional beer. This reminds me of Leffe, which I imagine it is modeled after, but better. Less bitterness and more flavor.

Percy0103 (67) - MEXICO - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle (2013), 355ml. An orange beer with a creamy head that fades away after a couple of minutes. It has a floral aroma, just like Goose Island’s Sofie, but less intense. Taste is slightly bitter at the beginning and siur at the end. Medium to heavy carbonation and also a little bit watery.

stevoj (1958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Hits all the right notes for the style, looks like it belongs in a Belgian trappist glass. Copper/orange with a small, silky oil skin head. Aroma of wine barrels and dried fruit. Taste is woody and smoky, some dried fruit, peat. Abrupt finish.
