3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Dirty orangish straw, thin to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet bready mealiness on the nose, a slight melon like sweetness.   Not all that musty or barnish that seems to be a shallow part of the style.   Plus at 7.5% its higher than most.   Sweet and bready on the tongue, almost too sweet.   Some mealy and cereal like presense on the backside.   A touch of dark pitted fruit shows up midway through but vanishes.   Feels almost like a really pale American version of a Belgian Dubbel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels pretty thick.   Finishes sweet, bready, mealy, with some cereal notes.   At times faint dark pitted fruit.   Pale version of an American made Belgian Dubbel, yep... Thanks Bill!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours copper with a thin cream-colored head. Nice blend of subtle aromas and flavors -- yeast, fruit, malt, grass, toffee, a bit of funk. Perhaps a tad too sweet.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at GABF. Pours a hazy orange with some eggshell head. Nose of orange, sweet, perfume, herbs. Tastes like orange concentrate, not much else. Clean finish. Weird.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a clear amber red with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of tofee, caramel, light plastic, flora and sweet grains. Flavor has toffee and sweet bread with some underlying sweet fruits.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle thanks to Errl. Pours a semi-hazy copper with a white head of foam. Not much retention. In the aroma I get banana and a touch of spice. Earthy sweetness dominates the taste with a bit of heat coming across on the back of the tongue. Musty. Pretty interesting. Lively carbonation.

Bottle shared by Bobby. Orange pour with a white head. Cloyingly sweet pear, apple, and grape. Metal, some caramel, grass, and solvent. The flavor is no good either. Solvent, metal, and cloying sugar and fruit. Apples, pear, grape, caramel, and some grass.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
651mL shared by t0rin0. Pours a cloudy golden with weak foam. Nose is tomato and salt. Taste is not drinkable- heavy metallic and insane acrid paperiness are chemical/toxic like with palate wrecking properties. An instant drainpour at a high level tasting like this. Run away!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear copper pour with an off white head that fades down to a ring pretty quickly. Aroma is toast, green apple, grain, and a little funky. Taste is tart apple, funk, earth, and grass. Earthy, grassy aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Medium body.
