Pours a golden orange color with a huge white head. This head does not go away! It is incredible! Aroma is fantastic, smelling grapefruit and citrus. Taste is similar to a hefeweizen, but a sweet version. Leaves a nice sweet taste at the finish. A little spice is in the flavor as well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, bottled March 2005. Poured a beautiful amber/orange into a goblet with a huge, lasting, rocky, off-white head. Very clean & pleasant aroma, floral with champagne and horseblanket. Flavor is a bit confused... lightly sour, horseblanket again, just a bit spicy, but muddled with a background strongly redolent of citrus rind. Wimpy, acrid finish. Palate is watery and too fizzy. Not an impressive showing given its reputation.

The flavor starts with apple with some light sourness and notes of yeast moves into a dry flowery light hoppiness and ends sour with a lasting after taste. A delightfull dry smooth mouth feel.Very good!

A great beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very good, but not outstanding. Its taste has a malt yet soapy taste that I find unappealing in most beers. The bouquet is very floral, like a greenhouse. Dry and quenches the throat.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 [bottle, dated 1/6/04, 6.9%ABV] Pours a cloudy, glowing orange color- head is ample, with large bubbles around the edges and thick, lumpy center. The aroma is so unique- very floral, with some brett character. Flavors are mostly sweet apples and pears, funky yeast and a touch of brett. Surprisingly hoppy, but the hops seem to balance well. Overall, a unique and interesting beer- one of my favorites.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured semi-translucent copper brown with slightly red tones. Big, slightly off-white long lasting head. Smells of flowers, pine, sweet fruit and esters. Medium/light bodied, fizzy and very drinkable. Very slight warmth from a subtle hint of alcohol. The pungent, earthy hop taste is immediately balanced by a hint of sweet malt. The hops are strong but not overpowering or lingering. This is an excellent beer.
