Unfiltered golden pour. Paper white thick head with lots of lacing. Aroma of earthy spicy hops a mild fruity esters. Thick mouthfeel. Esters are focus in flavor. I get banana, apple, and some clove. Mild hop spice aroma comes through too. Fairly bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from a trade with a buddy down in Houston- thanks again, Bryan! Pours a somewhat cloudy gold color with a finger of densely frothy white head. Aroma of sweet malts, dough, floral notes, grass, pears, apricots, and candi sugar. Flavor is the same with more maltiness and booziness. Medium-bodied, with medium soft carbonation and a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and finish. Nice strong Belgian farmhouse ale.

Bottle@Home. Sweetish and loads of hops. But it lacks some balance and complexity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a 0.75 L bottle, kindly shared by Arve_Christian. Pours a hazed orangey golden body, under a tall mostely lasting blond head. Spiced and light funky fruit aroma. Fruity flavor as well, fairly dry with fresh yeast tones and a mild sourness. Restrained malt flavor. Distinct grassy/herbal bitterness. Medium full. A refreshing tartness in the ending. Good, indeed. [Schouskjelleren 02.08.12]
