Yellow-gold with good, creamy & foamy white head / Fruity nose of tropical & orchard fruit, coconut, and malolactic fermentation / Medium to full body, fruity, sweet with a lot of dry, oak astringency? in the middle, good balance and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of pineapple, apple, pear, peach, clove, ginger, and oak / A little bigger and sweeter than I would prefer, but very well done. The description comment about pairing with French cheese is right on.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong floral and honey. Thin mouth with sweet fruit, honey, yeast, light tartness, very good. Sudsmcduff is awesome!

Bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange with thin off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of didst and sweet malt, taste files wroth hints of fruity booze. Meh, nothing too exciting but not bad.

Poured pail yellow. Aroma of lemony citrus. Taste was crisp and fresh (after being aged for 2 years). Very enjoyable. Couldn’t tell its high alcohol content.

"I’d had a small sample on tap a few weeks back and enjoyed it. Enjoyed the bomber to myself even more. Love the use of orange peel in this zesty, unique brew. 9% doesn’t show, at all. Belgian spices, chamomile and fruit. Solid all around."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
@ Whitey’s Wine and Liquor / Lawrenceburg IN --- Slightly hazy medium amber, white head that drops to a full contoured cover, bands and streaks of lace. Taste opens with malt that doesn’t grow til it moves to the back of the tongue, where it adds sweet citrus and yeast before adding a light hoppiness to bring things back into line. A solid brew that is so easy to drink, one must be aware of the alcohol, which never shows it’s face. Recommended.

On Tap at Whole Foods hazy soft yellow with a modest bright white head. Soft faint lemon citrus aroma. Plain light golden my flavor. Some citrusy notes but very subtle and dry. Easy sipper.
