2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Nose hints at a cloyingly sweet beer, with loads of candied sugar, oranges and perfume. Flavour is bizarre, with lots of candied sugar, but also lots of tart citrus fruits. Weird combination. They sort of balance each other out, but also seem to cancel each other out. Not an overly pleasant beer. Drinkable in small doses, but ultimately off the mark.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2011 bottle via trade. 2011 bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber and had almost no head. Aroma of apples, pears, spices, and caramel. Taste was overly sweet to me. I got most of the stuff from the nose in there, but this was just sickly sweet. I’m wondering if this is in the wrong style because it didn’t seem like a Belgian strong. Not terrible, but nothing special. Dry finish and alcohol hid well by the sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011 bottle. Pours a bright golden, with a small white head, moderate lacing. Aromas of tart apple, hay, light spice, bread and earthy hops. Taste is slightly tart, wheat laden but light. Nicely refreshing, but seems to missing something in the finish. Semi-dry. Light spice and clove. Decent brew.

From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a small foamy white head that left no lacing. The aroma was faintly tart, a bit sour and a bit of vinegar. The flavor was sour and tangy with citric acid and pear. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 [Bottle, 2011 / 2 years old] Moderately hazy, golden-amber body with a quickly fading white head. Aroma is mild with notes of lightly tart wheat, lemon, light orange zest, grass, yeast, bread, & musty spice. Taste is actually a little sour with some wheat, lemon, Belgian yeast & spices, & a little bit of white pepper. It’s like a lightly soured version of Duvel. Sour, dry wheat & yeast finish with a touch of must. I assume some of the sourness wasn’t as present fresh, but it’s actually quite nice.
