DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Hazy orange amber, orange tinted head that was still fully formed when I reached the end. Aroma is sweet, fruity and funky. Very bretty palate, but very juicy too. Barnyard funk, light leather, white grape, tart berries. Finish is tart, slightly lactic, and woody. Complex yet infinitely drinkable.

sepia5 (237) - Connecticut, USA - APR 16, 2011
Nice beer that pours a slightly hazy amber with a massive white head. This beer primarily smells and tastes of musty Belgian yeast, though there are undertones of citrus. Very drinkable and enjoyable. Nothing spectacular, but solid.

degbert (1318) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark creamy orange with an amazingly lush and fine-grained head. Nose is incredible -- sweetness, funk, a definite citrus touch, wild mustard, lavender, and a touch of savory. Clean and clear on the tongue, with malt and hops creating a riot of tastes -- mustard again, mushroomy earth, lemon, herbs. Clean finish. Amazingly complex beer.

Cybercat (3877) - Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2011
Pours a pretty, slightly dark, slightly hazy golden amber with a VERY thick buttery off-white head. The bottle I got fizzed like nobody’s business, so have a towel handy! Aroma is average strength, fruity, yeasty and somewhat sweet with a malty hint. Flavor is mainly fruity, sweet but not too sweet, and has malt and yeast hints plus just a bit of butterscotch. Texture is fairly fizzy, leaving a rather persistent tingle on the tongue and lips.
