3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
AOBF ’04: Pours a chunky, cloudy, orange/peach hue. Apricot, banana, clovey, apple must, yeast nose. Small yellow/white-ish head. Extremely sweet, very estery, big bananas, more funky cloves, nice body, finishing faintly acidic and terribly sweet. Interesting to say the least. They say this may go into next years X-Mas sampler...We will see.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
AOBF 2004 Draught. Probably my second or third favorite at the festival. Pours a deep peach/apricot orange with some light rusty brown hues on the edges. Small yellow-beige head, moderately hazy. Aroma of rich sweet yellow fruits, caramel, wheat and yeast. Flavor is immediately intense. Sweet, succulent caramel and wheat, with a balancing sharpness coming from the big fruit esters. The yeast apparency, which is like a mix between sour german yeast and belgian yeast adds a very unique element to this beer. Towards the end, it dries out a bit and gets very creamy with some vanilla cream flavors making their way in. Finish is pretty quick and clean, surprisingly, with lots of apple-like flavor and almost a cidery feel to it. I really enjoyed the mix of fruit, yeast, wheat and malt at the start. Even though it is a bit too sweet, I thought the flavor was very interesting. Body is full, tending to medium on the finish.

On tap at the art of beer festival Stammtisch. Cloudy Bronze color with a light lacing. Aroma was somewhat wheaty, with quite strong tones of bannana and apple. Flavor was malty, slightly sweet, lightly wheaty, fair amount of bannana and apple, some spicy cloves, and a general but not overpowering alcohol presence. I had the extreme pleasure of being the pourer for this beer and was able to amply sample it.
