3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 Hazy amber-orangeish hue, with a rocky white head, with a fruity, spicy coriander note, candied orange peels, and yeasty aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet malty and fruity charecter, spicy, yeasty, note of candied fruits, like oranges, leading towards a smooth sweet alcoholic and a faint bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml brown bottle. Thick foam slowly oozed from the bottleneck upon uncapping. When poured it was a deep golden/orange beer topped with a dense beige cap. Aroma of sweet candied oranges, light floral notes, yeast and perhaps faint apple. Bittersweet flavours - starts rather sweet, light fruity flash in the middle over some caramelish malt. Middle is bready. Finishes with some alcohol, citrus bitterness and more yeast. Medium body. Pleasant if not subtle strong ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice cloudy orange body topped with a thick and lasting off-white foamy head. Good yeasty nose with fruity (orange, lemon) and spicy notes. Alcohol is well hidden. Taste carries sharp hoppy flavors and some yeasty, bready, and fruity hints. Ends with a decent bittersweet and warming finish. Good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from the LCBO. Tasted in Maudite tulip. Appearance is amber colour, approaching red. Head is massive, white and somewhat disturbing. Slightly cloudy with massive carbonation bubbles rippling through the amber ether. Aroma is soapy, flowery, perfumy and spicy....oh so soapy. Flavour is an orchestra of disaster. Sheer and utter madness. Malty, slightly sour, bits of things suspended in the brew and moving to and fro in my tiny little mouth....help me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Citrus, yeast and malt aroma, cloudy peach/apricot, pours a gigantic, long lasting firm custard head, lots of carbonation, some floaties, and pretty lace. Flavour stings with an alcoholic malt, some pear, then bready notes, as it warms a bit of lemon. Light bodied, sweet and strong, even though it’s only 7%. Fair.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange/amber in color with a massive, rocky head of offwhite foam. Nicely done coriander siced aroma balanced by some sweet malt. Big, criander spice profile (too much for me) with a sweet malt foundation. Lots of lacing, pretyy good overall, but overdone on the coriander.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An unclear pinkish red beer with a huge light brown head. The aroma is extremely sweet with notes of peaches, yeast, coriander, as well as other spices. The flavor is also very sweet and again it contains notes of coriander, oranges, peaches, as well as cinnamon. Nice.
