3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A sweet floral nose with hints of yeast, spice, and a tartness. A cloudy orangish amber pour with frothy, mostly lasting, off-white head and medium lacing. There is initial hay/straw taste followed by a slight sweetness and a hint of spice and alcohol in the finish. There also seemed to be a pleasing citrus note in the mix. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Dry and quick. To me, overall, not a typical Belgion Strong Ale, but I liked it all the same. It had a Saison quality that I think would complement many different dishes.

Patrzę na oceny innych i nie wierzę. W mojej butelce była ambrozja! Aromat malin, wiśni, ciasta, rodzynek, agrestu... Po ogrzaniu bardziej triplowaty, wyszły belgijskie nuty przyprawowe i brzoskwinia. W smaku dopełnienie masakry: cudnie winogronowo - jabłkowy, słodki, bardzo musujący jak najlepsze szampany, kontra w postaci subtelnej, przyprawowej goryczki. Alkohol? Był tam jakiś alkohol? Bliskie absolutu!

Deep pumpkin-orange, very cloudy. One finger of thin, short-lived white head. Smells and tastes like a barleywine. Big malt character, like overripe oranges. A little sherry, caramel. Oddly peppery, like a saison. Fairly dry finish. Odd mix of flavors. Medium body, big-bubbled carbonation, a bit of alcohol heat on the tip of the tongue. Not my favorite. A very weird blend of flavors.

Very farmhouse and high abv and highly drinkable. Hazy coloured body. Wafting farmhouse. Interesting.

From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a capped 750mL bottle that I obtained from the Rare Beer Club. Pours hazy orange with a thick off-white head that leaves thick, rocky lace. The nose is citrus orange, caramel, corn bread, and some spicy yeast. The flavor is a touch of sweet, caramelized orange peel up front, moving to the corn bread malt and finishing with some spicy yeast and bitterness. The body is medium with average, smooth carbonation, and a long spicy and malty corn bread finish.

Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. Hazy dark yellow with a small white head. Yeast, coriander, a touch of white pepper, and a little funk in the nose. The tartness provides a nice balance to the light malt notes. Lemon pith, hay, and yeast flavors blend well ending with a slight spicy touch. Well made.

Poured from a bottle into tulip: Pours golden with a decent white head. Aroma is malty, peppery, slight citrus fruit, resin, and funk. Taste is very boozy, lots of funk, hops, and malt sweetness. There is a lot going on with this beer and the flavors aren’t playing well together. Beer gets boozier as it warms up. Medium body, medium carbonation, really harsh. Meeh.
