Draft at Plan B West Hartford. Pours yellow with a thin white head that leaves trace lacing. Slight bitter spice note on the nose. Tastes like perfumed saison on the tongue. Itís got some bitterness on the finish. Eh!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16oz can... dark gold with some copper, not a great color, a big light cream head, good retention... the nose is a touch too sweet with too much yeast as well, honey water with yeast... tastes way too yeast with a weird lager finish, easy to drink for 8.5% but not super enjoyable

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz Can, shared at a party. Nice aroma, of solid, subtle fruits and classic stylistic twang. Fresh. Flavors were crisp and clean. I enjoyed this as an American interpretation of the more classic examples of the style, as it wasnít too bubblegummy, sweet, nor sticky. It had a pleasant dryness to the heft and a fun range of character. Solid work.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow...surprised at the ratings on this one. This was shared by TPatuto, waiting in line for GTMW tickets, and it was the star of the show for me, in a lineup of pretty awesome beers. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Nose is skunky and fruity--kind of like Orval--with light herbal hops. Taste is fresh and hoppy, with a nice yeastiness, herbal and light grassiness, light skunk, and a touch of tropical fruit. Really nice mouthfeel on this one--smooth and a bit syrupy. Would love a sixer of this.

One of the raddest cans Iíve ever seen! Being a huge Maiden fan this was a must. Pours a lightly hazed deep gold with a frothy white head. Nose was dominated by citrus and fresh floral hops. Very Duvel-esk on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Can: Completely opaque golden-amber with a sunburst center. Creamy, off-white head with decent retention on top. Light, spotty lacing. Dense floral aroma, peppery hops, Belgian yeast, clove, peppermint, overripe banana, a touch of tart pear, & some perfume pungency. Flavor is very hoppy, floral, & leafy. A touch of ashy hops with bubblegum & clove spice heavy from the yeast. Notes of coriander, phenols, banana, pears, grapefruit rind, & Candi sugar sneak in & lead into a bitter, earthy, yeast filled finish.
