3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orangy copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is rock sugar, fruit, citrus, mango, hops, black peppery spice. Tastes a bit sweet, with rock syrupy pale malt, apricotty fruit, hops, spice, and florals. This one is very rich, very good, although ti gets a teeny biy hot and cloying late. A true diamond in the rough.

This is a quad? really? I would not’ve guessed. Gold, with a decent sized white head. Very sweet aroma - Like orange juice and vodka or something like that. Lots of fruity flavors - orange, banana, pineapple, and a boozy finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle thanks to David. Pours a quite clear orange hue with a medium white head. A pretty thick and creamy head. The aroma is sweet fruity malts, alcohol heat. The flavor is nice; tangerines, spices, zesty, some dryness, light heat, a somewhat bitter finish but overwhelmed by loads of sweetness. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 Bottle, Tapping the Vine. Finally got this one after a friend recommended it. Nose is slightly yeasty with heavy hits of citrus and spice. Nice golden/redish amber color. Flavor is exquisite with cinnamon spice, citrus and grape/plum accents with a lingering banana sweetness that carries this beer off with a nice finish. Sweet and enjoyable. It has a belgian flavor but a uniqueness all its own. Definitely recommended.

From the 12oz bottle. Deep amber pour with a thick off white head. Citrus peel, coriander and a touch of maple in the aroma. Lots of Belgian character in the taste with heavy emphasis on the spices. Very easy to drink for the abv and good on a warm winter day.

12oz bottle. Pour a lightly hazed orangey caramel with very small ring of a head. Orange malty sweetness with a hint of candi sugar and a hint of minty booze. Sweet candi sugar, cake batter and pineapple in the flavor. Lacking yeast character.
