3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great appearance with huge head and lacing. Aroma hinted of citrus, grains, and a tart yeast. Spicey and tart on the palate, finish clean. Very enjoyable and unique style when done right.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle: A large white bubbly froth sits atop a cloudy orangish hued glass of goodness. Very interesting yeasty flavor, with some lemony/peppery/floral accents. Maybe a bit of cloves thrown in. Very sticky... flavor is retained for some time after finishing. I detect some other spices as well... hard to put my finger/tongue on it. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Brouwers. Had while hanging out with bvc. He had the Glacier IPA as did after4ever who was there too. He rated it highly This one has tons of fruit on the nose along with lots of brett. I got notes of orange, peach, lemon, dusty brett, some spice. A touch of bread perhaps as well. Pours a nice orange, hazy with a thin head. The flavor is also very fruity. A great deal of orange, lemon, peach. This is followed by some bready spicy sweetness on the mid palate and a does of dusty funk in the finish. Medium carbonaton, silky smooth mouth feel - assuming the oats contribute to this. Drinks very nicely and is pretty flavorful.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2003 ReRate: Golden orange colored, with a slight haze to it. Good head with exceptional lacing. Aroma is initially slightly hoppy then developes into full form at warmer temperatures and there are brilliant notes of apricot, orange, corriander, pepper and spicyness. Flavor is full of cheer with spice and pepper, citrus notes are abundant and complex. The finish is smooth and refreshing and overall this one is just a wonderful saison, this one got much better with a couple months of extra aging.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 Update, bottle, LOF version, April 2012. Makes me wonder if my original rating below was really for the same beer. This is richly orange, highly carbonated, with a firm but thin head. The beer emits quite the aroma -- robust and weighted with fruit, yeast and herbs. The beer drinks with a warming edge, flavored with a bit of orange rind, and garden freshness. Numbers updated/upped based on this latest impression. <<Original rating, Feb 2004, from a non-LOF bottle: Hazy orange-yellow with a decent head (if poured down the middle of the glass). There’s honey on the nose. Decent yeast-weighted flavor with a wheaty character, smooth but not overbearing. Not as full-charactered as a good Belgian wheat, but not a bad interpretation for the US market.>>

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Draught at Meddlesome Moth) pale yellow pour with soapy white bubbles. Nose and taste have umami, sweaty socks, some light white pepper, Belgian yeast, and very faint brett. The palate linger isn’t very good either. Disappointed. Had this from the bottle previously and liked its floral and brett influence better. Seemed lacking here.

This was a good beer. Pours a cloudy golden broth, then settles to a beutiful orange tint. Good Lacing qualities. An almost honey like scent that goes well with the sweet-bitterness. This is also a good cooking beer, oddly enough..

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the Sam’s in Downers Grove, Illinois: It poured a slightly hazed orange/amber body with an ecru film in lieu of a head. It had an aroma of lemon, soft caramel, warm spices, and a touch of funk. Very socft mouthfeel - perhaps too soft. The flavor added a touch of tropical fruit and a mild citrus rind bitterness. The finish was dry and mildly bitter. Pretty decent.
