3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. A clear golden one with a medium sized quite white head. Smells actually mildly of snuff (snus) and fruits. Some rhubarb perhaps? I don’t know, but I know that I find this quite nice in the flavor! It’s light fruity and yeasty, with some spicy pepper and a little warming hint of alcohol. OK, perhaps a bit more than a hint, and the same in the finish. Almost boozy aftertaste actually.. 10.05.2012

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in San Clemente. Pours a clear, golden-yellow-orange body with a thin, snow white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a soft, delicate lacing. Aroma is sweet and bready. Lots of ripe bananas and a bit yeasty. Some sweet grassy hops in the back. Similar flavor with lots of bready malts. Belgian fruitiness from the yeast, banana, and a bit of hops. Definitely more sweet than spicy. Palate is full and malty, smooth, and has a slow, subtle dry finish. Overall, not bad. Pretty balanced and enough taste to satisfy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared competition bomber that was brought out of the cellar, and poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a modest layer of white head foam, and light waves & spots of lacing. The nose was subtle tartness, light spice, citrus, & stone fruit. The taste was similar, with a more evident, candy sweetness, rather hidden alcohol, and good carbonation, all in a medium body. Rather tasty, and cellared quite well considering a 4 year nap.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Gold with a white head. Spicy, peppery aroma, but overall a little muted. The orange jumped out in the flavor, with some spice an doughy yeast. Dry finish with light alcohol warmth. Nice and light in the mouth with spritzy carbonation. Nice stuff, but not really too interesting. The dry finish was a nice tough though.
