2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
cork says 2010 bought early 2011: amber orange pour with tan head that dissipates quickly with lots of bubbles still. light haze. aromas of apples, cinnamon, cherry cough drops and raspberries. still lots of bubbles and carbonation but not much head. cherry apple cranberry taste, not what i was expecting or remember last time i tried this. very effervescent with lots of medicinal cherry flavor. the beer almost disappears in your mouth with all the carbonation, it would like it more if it was more tart or funky. no hop character and not much spice. This beer might be a bit past its prime and not as good as i remember, I shouldn’t have waited too long to drink the bottle. some of the flavors remind me more of a quad than a saison. I’ll have to try this again with a fresh batch.

From 750 ml bottle : Pours a hazy amber/orange color with a foamy white head that leaves spotty lacing around the glass. Nose of tropical fruits, peach, apple sauce, yeast, bread dough. Taste is fruity sweet. Palate has some tart to it, and again like the Saison, could use some more carbonation in my opinion. Still very good brew from FL.

Cloudy brown/orange, with a nice tan head. Aroma of apple, citrus, caramel. Flavor is pretty similar, with some more pronounced brown sugar notes. Pretty easy drinking, but not terribly complex. Nice mouthfeel. Good brew.

wild and yeasty, tons of foamy head that recedes quickly. funk on the nose, almost milky smelling (sounds bad but it’s fantastic), great belgian fruits and rustic malts. touch of tang and hops on the finish. complex beer. original.

750ml. served into Duvel tulip. Pour is clody light brown with lacy off white head. Aromas of sweet malts, fruits, citrus, oak, and some caramel. Flavor is sweet fruits, citrus, slight sour, and burnt sugar. Interesting and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. from Trinity Liquors in Spring Hill, FL. Very nice bottle. Pours burnt orange with an off white head. Fruity and spicy aroma, very nice. Very complex flavor, tons of different fruits and spices and nice warm alcohol. Leaves a bit of an aftertase but fairly easy on the palate. Overall its a pretty damn good beer...I’d say better than Delirium Nocturnum and Chimay Red...but not as good as the other Deliriums and Chimays. Definately worth a buy.

"Idiosyncratic" in spades. Topnotch "kicklectic" florida take on a Belgian new school micro, not really ever sour but with decent aftertaste-extending acidity but more citrus like, a short spike of under ripe tropical fruit...oh wait, I mean over ripe star fruit. Yeah. Rambling aside, I like this alot, it’s got "heart", the most elusive of beer qualities, pretty much in spades, right up there with Bink and La Rulles and maybe even....FANTOME AND/OR DOLLE. Yep.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 Opaque brown with a huge, foamy, light brown head. Smells of alcohol, raisin and other similar fruits. Mild sweetness, strong sourness. Interesting but not outstanding.
