BMan1113VR (7884) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Marked as best by 08/09. Pours with a largish, off-whute head and a hazy yellow body and good lacing. Aroma is butter with some peanut butter, caramel and toaste. Taste is full of diacytel, butter and metal with a bit of wet dog musk and some biscuts. A bit astringet. Fizzy and creamy with noticable alcohol.

The pour reveals a cloudy orangey golden color with a medium, bubbly, white head. Aroma of citrus and doughy, bready yeast. The flavor has a sharp presence of oranges, the yeast is also there, but not as much present as in the aroma. The body is light to medium with a slightly oily texture and slightly expansive carbonation. Interesting.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 33cl bottle t home: Pours a cloudy copper orange with a fading tainted white head. Aromas of orange flesh, apples, yeast and sugar. Touches of bread or toast underneath the sweet fruit. Slight herbal, that could be hop derived, floats around just under some alcohol that can be quite hot when swirled up. Some spice and a strange chemical note that seem slightly pineappley get more noticeable as the beer sits. Big sweet honey-on-toast flavors dominate before a spice and alcohol mixture push their way in. CO2 adds a sting on top of this "spicy alcohol". Quite hot at the end. Some tin notes thats blend right into an oxidized cardboard flavor. Caramel malts become heavy after a while. Flavors seem a little at odds with eachother at times. Alcohol is just too hot in the middle (but ok through the rest). Medium-full body and a bit sticky at times.

DruncanVeasey (7349) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2008
750ml corked bottle that’s been sitting around for some time. Aroma marmalade, pepper, earthy citrus, alcohol, metal, apple peel, honey, conifer. Light banana esters if you’re looking for them. Deep amber hanging densely with bits, off-white halo, alcohol bitterness, some warmth. Antiseptic honeyish notes, watery esters, boozy apple afters. Too much metal. Thin and rusty. Smells great, but expect much more from a 10% Belgian I’ve been cupboarding for a couple of years.

(Dégusté avec french tickler) Une biere blonde avec un mince collet moyennement collant. Odeur de peches, caramel et framboises. Gout sucré, alcohol et de noix. Une biere tres bien équilibré. Belle découverte!

rederic (3156) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2008
Hazy honey gold hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty, fruity nose of ripe apples, with some faint honeyed pale malts, and a hint of floral hop citrusy in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, sweet honeyed pale malt character, with a warmth alcoholic mouthfeel, a light cereal grainy accent, a hint of vanilla, leading towards a honeyish warming finish.
