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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. 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. A little too much carbonation but it doesn’t take much away from the beer. A very nice beer!

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2009 Pours a Deep Golden/orange with a huge frothy head that stays. Aroma is right out of the monastary, musty, earthy, and dusty. I bet the aroma is just like being in there storage cellers. Taste is huge floral petal leaves and sweet hops. Too much for me though.
Re-rate: After trying this a few times at different ages, Its not too much for me!!! 1 year on it was great!!!

poured an intresting orange/brown/copper hue. A slightly off white head with good retention. aroma is a mix of sweet citrus malts and mild alcohol. Flavor is mainly sweet with almost a spicy presance. A little too much carbonation yet.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful pour, mid brown/copper color, generous head and lacing that continues throughout drinking it. Aroma is sweet, citrus stands out.. Flavor is great, leaves a sweet aftertaste, but doesn’t linger too long. Mouthfeel is lacking, carbonation hits a little too strong.. Great beer overall though.
