From a growler with my dad. Light orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a little alcohol, sweet, caramel, and kinda yeasty. Taste is honey, light fruit, spice, and just a little heat.

Blue cheese body odor aroma. Med full bodied but thins out in finish with hot phenols. Bad finish and lingering off flsvors. Maybe a bad vintage (2013).

9/20/13 $3.99 bottle from CBO. Closed the pool. Got annoyed needed a beer. Thought I bought this beer last weekend for sushi. Not sure what happened.
Light copper pour with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is a little alcohol, lots of sweetness with Belgian yeast. Slight fruit, spice, and just a little too much heat on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a fluffy off white head and a little yeast floating around inside. Very nice bretty funk note on the nose, noticeably peppery/spicy, wet grass, nice and fruity, citrusy hop bite, and a nice sweet malty note. Very little of the hoppiness in the taste, a lot less brett funk than I expected, and a lot of the flavor is just malty sweetness. There’s some of the nice peppery spice and citrus fruits there, too. Taste is very much a letdown after the smell.

Pours cloudy with an orange gold colour. Spice and fruit on the nose. Fruity sweet taste with a spicy floral finish. A medium balanced beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Clear light amber with a bubbly white head that lasts barely longer than the pour, this has a fruity (mainly cherry) aroma with light sweet malts, floral hopping, and unmet suggestions of a spiciness to follow. Light-bodied, this has a sweet malt taste, some citric tartness, mild unknown spicing, and a bit of hop bitterness. The finish is a citric bitterness, not hop related, with a sweet fruity stickiness. Not a bad beer, but absurdly overpriced for what it is.

took a few drinks from the same snifter duane was drinking from. This beer was all yeast. slightly spicy and slightly fruity, but there was so much yeast up front that I had a tough time distinguishing the more subtle flavors.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle with 2006 on the neck label. Rich amber color with continuing lively white head, densely laced. The aroma has a malt backbone with substantial fruit notes, but in the tasting over time the caramel ale dimensions built, very dry and leaving a bit of a tacky finish, not unlike a few British ales I’ve had. Overall, then, it left a feeling of lacking dimensionality. Good carbonation, tingling, with a moderately oily mouthfeel. It just wasn’t my thing--perhaps greater fruitiness and a little less dry and it would have suited my tastes better.
