UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 7/22/05 Bottle from brad. Pours hazy golden orange w/ small white head. nose is light sour fruit, almost acidic feeling. Taste is bitter with light citrus and astringent feeling to it. Actually has quite a bit of water to it.
rerate 12/3/05 Pours a hazy yellow color with a white foamy head. Nose is grassy, citrusy, yeasty, light orange/lime zingy notes. Taste is lots of yeast, dry and lightly chalky, but at the same time shows some signs of citrus fruit juice. numbers reflect rerate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Straight golden in color, clear, with no head. Looks like a glass full of honey. Malty sweet aroma reminds me of honey as well, with some caramalized sugar, cloves, ginger, alcohol and spicy hops. Graham crackers, toffee, alcohol and banana flavor. Spicy, mildy bitter, mildly sweet finish. Highly carbonated, but it pairs well with this. Thanks, Crash, for bringing this back from Texas for me!

Pours a golden-organce with a little head and lacing. Aroma was sweet with some hints of fruit. Taste was good but, it had a "thickness" to it and I can’t explain that took away from the overall taste.

Smooth, nice yeast. Lace, disapearing head that was small to begin with. Fancy aroma. Good balance, tad of fruit and overall sweetness.Suitably carbonated and some cream in medium mouthfeel. High alcohol but still a good transition to Belgian style. No objections to this. Thanks to Tim (IPFreely).

Pretty heady and lager-ish in appearance. Taste is extermely wheaty. Not bad, it grows on you, and it is slightly better warm. The alcohol does present itself more in the finish, and if it gets too warm it will remind you of a low-quality malt liquor. If it’s not drank at the right temperature, it just doesn’t cut it.

This beer has promise, but it needs more. Weak yeast and hops are greeted by a faint malt presence. Remarkably unspectacular, though it does show promise with nice hints of fruit and wood in the finish. Keep working guys; ya’ll will get it right eventually.
