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.

argo0 (12033) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Pours with a huge orange-tan head, which when reduced leaves a cloudy copper body. Remarkable amount of sediment dislodged at the end of the bottle. Aroma is orange peel, coriander, wheat, and some herbal hoppy. Taste is medium sweet, orange peel, vinous, light vanilla, finishing with some grapefruit and herbal, and light alcohol. Full body with vinous characteristics.

Christian (11701) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2011
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

Bottle. [thank you, madmitch76]
Pours hazy red-orange with a giant, frothy, off-white head. Really lovely aroma. There is brett, cinnamon, vanilla, holly, caramel, lots of nutmeg. Lovely. Medium to high carbonation, lovely dry bretty and spicy mouthfeel. Flavour is extremely well-balanced and still extremely spicy. Ginger, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, coriander. Fantastic dryness. Lightly warming. There is piney hops, caramel malts, light chocolate and a slight herbal ginger finish. I, as one who like spicy ales, this is really brilliant.

Ratman197 (11074) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Bottle 2005 poured a cloudy orange with a large, lasting amber head. Aromas of citrus, spices,and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of orange, spices, and a hint of vanilla with a mildly bitter finish and an odd lingering aftertaste. I’m not impressed.
