Hazy yellow, white head. Aroma is pilsner malt with light spicy phenols and fruity notes. Flavor is grainy pilsner malt with some biscuity and dry, cracker-like qualities, light fruits (pear, apple), some earthy spice and some light dusty and leathery notes as well. Very balanced and drinkable.

One of the best beers of the night. Big thanks to Mike. There were notes of grain, sweet pils, yeast, fruity. It is nice and way drinking.

Massive bottle (jeroboam?) thanks to Mike at the Holiday party. What a cool bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. Light fruity nose and some yeast. Come across as a sweet fruity mix of pear and lemon, a light bitter hop, dusty, some light oxidation perhaps, grains in the finish. Good.

Bottle shared by Mike at the holiday party, thanks
Appearance: Hazy yellow with a small white head and light lacing
Unfortunately, the rest of my notes for this beer say is "it was nice and tasty" so I guess it was.
Thanks for sharing Mike

jsquire (3499) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Sampled from a magnum bottle we got at the brewery poured into champagne flutes. Hazy golden color with a bit ivory head. Yeasty nose with some spritzy sweetness. Noticable alcohol in the taste, with pear, apple sauce and bready yeast. Sweet malt with a finish of bitter orange. Very lively on the tongue. Really thick tripel.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
A slightly cloudy golden orange color with a big white head. A slightly funky aroma to this. Quite yeasty with some hints of spice and bready malt. Maybe some hints of sugar. The flavor is nicely sweet with a definite yeasty quality. Some hints of spice and maybe a bit of oxidation. Medium and medium.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 1, 2012
750ml bottle. Clearish deep golden with a huge, thick, creamy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of sugar, herbal tea, lemon, apple and some earthy yeast. Flavor is sweet honey malt and sugar with some tart cider and yeast hints. Medium body with active carbonation. This is an interesting beer, it seems that some cider and herbal tea qualities have come out in this with age. Ive had this beer 3-4 times and I would have to say this bottle had the most carbonation, which was a good thing.
