A disappointing beer. Similar to the Sam Adams IPA (which tastes more like a pale ale)

Secret sampling after begging for 2 hours. Thanks Bill.
Hazy yellow pour with a big candy sugar aroma. Sweet malt taste with notes of pepper, spices and bread. A good beer.
Bill said this was going to a special BF, but he didn’t say which one.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. This was just too much. Body pours a light golden with a tall tight white head. Aroma of sugar and lots of it. Flavors of cotton candy, skittles and cinnamon raisin bread, toasted. Really nearly undrinkable. Pallate is hot and thin and the burn gets worse and worse as the beer warms.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 BBF 08. Nice light golden with some haziness and a nice fluffy lasting white head. Aroma is spicy phenolic light lemony and vanilly phenols, some citrus, earth and a slight sweet alcholic burn. Flavor is also sugary burn from the high alcohol but the malts try to keep up light doughy breadiness from the pils malt, more spicy earthy phenolics good clean hoppiness and a surpisingly dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample @ BBF ’08, Boston. Pours a hazy yellowish-orange with a white head. Aroma is candy sugar, herbs and slight spice. Taste was very sweet, with fruit notes also detectable. Not a bad try at the style from Sam Adams.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @ BCTC 2008. Had trouble finding this one listed in here. Pours a sort of cloudy Saxo-ish yellow orange. Aroma was Belgian sugar sweetness, some herbal aroma. Taste was tripel type sweet, fruity. Almost too sweet & sugary but not too bad

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ BCTC. Pours a hazy, golden-orange color; creamy, light khaki head with great retention and fine-bubbled lacing; great pour. Toasty, citrus, and mineral bitterness in the aroma; dry, minerally, and lightly herbal; touch of lime. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy Belgian sugar, white pepper, and creamy toasted malts; messy, chewy, sticky big Belgian beer; basic and pretty one-dimensional expression. Medium finish: breadiness, toasty malts, and Belgian sugar.
