Pretty good beer. Poured from a bottle at a good temperature getting a mammoth, foamy, super frothy, fluffy, billowy, off white, long lasting head and loads of clingy lace. Color is a clear amber with some slow, lazy, large bubble trails. Aroma is mainly hop and malt. Flavor is hop, malt, some carbonic tang, quite dry. Body is great, ditto carbonation. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and a hint of alcohol. To me, it’s a somewhat strong american india pale ale. I don’t pick up much spice at all. Good drinking though.

Magnum bottle, I think 1 or 2 years old. Auburn pour with a good amount of beige head. Spiced, and put fruit aroma. Flavor is the same, but the yeast is very strong making the finish somewhat sharp and earthy.

Tap. Pours hazy ruby with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine, resin, and spruce hops, light biscuit malt, fruity esters, and spicy alcohol. Flavor is spicy alcohol, medium malt, heavy hops, moderate bitterness, and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2011
1.5 liter magnum from Wine and Cheese Place. Shared at Blake’s Feast of Friends party. Pours a cloudy red-amber color with a massive off-white head that starts frothy and settles rocky with heavy lace. Aroma of wheat, orange peel, coriander, clove and other spices, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, and mixed fruits. Flavor follows suit for the most part, with plenty of spices, wheat, mixed malts, and fruits. Medium-bodied, with abundant carbonation and a wheaty, spicy mouthfeel. A little muddled but interesting.

RasmusOtt (1060) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2011
On tap. Pours redish orange with off white head. Aroma is sweet rice, almost like rice milk, some milky lacto sweetness, rice pudding, sweet grains, almons, honey, some hops behind and a yeasty feel. Taste is very different. Alot more fresh with hops, citrus and grapefruit bit still the grainy sweetness from the aroma is there underneath.
