4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle - Pours a dark amber with a fluffy offwhite head that looks like soapsuds and laces the whole way down the tulip. Aromas of yeast, floral hops, spices, and underneath some bread. Taste is bread, floral hops, spice, yeast, a bit of citrus, and some candy sugar. This is quite complex for an American made Belgian. Palate is somewhat dry but medium bodied and carbonated pretty well. Feels very nice in the mouth. Closest thing to the Iris yet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blend #2, bottled in April 29, 2010.
Appearance: The body is a hazy amber with a towering light tan head that dissipates very slowly. The head dissipates very unevenly, creating a maze through to the liquid.
Aroma: The aroma is tart and funky with some leather, lemons and bright cherries. Very enticing!
Taste: Slightly tart with cherries up front into musky malts with an overlying tart lemon. The finish is mild and refreshing, semi-tart lemon and hints of malts. This drinks nice for a 3 year old beer.
Palate: A bit watery with mild carbonation. The bottle is slowly gushing, pushing up a snake of carbonation, so I’m guessing the carbonation is leaving the beer and not present in the body despite a huge head.
Overall: I wasn’t expecting much, but this is decent. I like the bright lemon and cherry flavors but the malts have become musky and distract from the flavor. The beer is also overcarbed, but at the same time it’s lost the carbonation in the body. I would like to try this fresh as it’s likely great.

Poured 7-11-12 from bomber: Interesting in not a good way; like wild ale with extra acid on throat. Pumpkin-like esters. 3.75 BD, 4.2 Joek- Not good smell, latent pepper, want to dump out. Ultimate question- "why finish the beer?"

Beautiful cloudy light gold color with large fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma has mellow citrus notes with musky earthyness & wet socks. Flavor has great mix of citrus fruits, light hops and spices, with a bit of sourness. Very refreshing, light mouthfeel with pinchy carbonation. Really good overall.
