3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2008 Date: 12/22/2006
Source: Barley’s, NC
clear dark yellow, creamy cream colored head, solid creamy head,
sweet fruity aroma,
sweet fruity flavor, lots of candy sweetness, lots of fruit character, some bitterness shows up in the finish but gives it complexity rather than balance, the sweetness starts to dry out as it warms,
the bottle is drier than the draft with more spicy bitterness,
Vintage: batch 2
nice spicyness in the aroma in addition to the sweet malt,
not quite the sweet candy flavor from before but more of a sweet bread flavor, still the spicyness for balance,
Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 14/20

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
My sample fizzed from here to the Pole of Inaccessibility, so have a big and thirsty towel handy when you crack a bomber. Pours a barely translucent apricot with a rather thick, if effervescent, pale buff head. Aroma has firm fruity and yeasty notes with hints of malt and butterscotch. Fruity flavor has notes of banana, pear and mango; and has yeasty and malty underpinnings plus a snippet of butterscotch. Texture is fairly thick, and strong fizz makes you feel it all the way down the pipes. This one is a real gasser!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample in a flight at the brewery. Pours a light gold, with a minimal head. The aroma is bready and fruity, with notes of apples, bananas, cloves, and biscuit dough. Very sweet flavor, with little to no bitterness or sourness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, and smooth. Overall, this is a cloyingly sweet, but generally tasty beer. Could be more complex, but certainly not bad.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a fantastic head. Smells of yeast, honey, herbs, spices, vegetables, alcohol, grass, hay. Bouquet is bigger than what I described. Tastes slightly metallic and also tastes of honey, caramel, dark fruits, grape, candy sugar, grass, warming herbs, sweet spice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, Asheville, NC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, cherry, and faint caramel. The flavor is sweet Belgian candi sugar upfront with a fruity, citrusy finish. A bit of bugglegum as well. Moderate alcohol warming. Good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle as an extra. Pour has an orange golden color with a slight cap of white foam and a fairly still look in the glass. Aroma has some sourness, pear sweetness, white grape, and honey. Flavor definately has some sour, honey, white grapes, sweet over ripe fruit, and odd yeast. I drank the whole first glass thinking one sip I like it and the next that I dont. I am confused it is sour and sweet, while being fruity and Belgian. The only plus side is that you can not tell there is any alcohol in this even though it is so high in the abv department. The barcode is cut off this bottle so I will assume it was on a clearance rack somewhere as it is definately super aged. I am going to guess that this one got a little abused and who knew she would like it.

Bottle shared with friends. Slightly hoppy, more malty then anything, but has a certain in your face sugar presence. A slow slipper for sure. Would probably age really well.
