Cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, cookie spices, grass and yeast - a bit too perfumed spice. Sweet and spiced flavour, with yeast and banana notes - a bit too cloying

2004 bottle. Complex aroma of fruit. Citrus, perhaps pear, vanilla and others. Ruby apricot color with a ferocious beige head. Strong fruit flavors, followed by the listed spices. Shockingly good. Finishes relatively dry, with an astringent fruit character.

Bottle at Pat’s birthday tasting at chriso’s. Pours hazy gold with a fine, white head. Sweet malt nose with some ripe fruit notes. Slight aged malt flavor, some spice, golden raisins, toasted sugar. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation. Warming finish, sticky sugar, sweet fruits, spices, bready malts. An interesting beer for sure.
