3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. pours a very hazy honey golden orange with a rocky white headthat diminishes in size but does last, laces well. Great color! initial very big lemon, vinegar, buckwheat? champagne, yeasty (champagne yeast?) reminds me a little of Chimay bleu. very nice palate...lots of sediment though (not a bad thing, just dont drink it). Very unique...drunk best at cool-to warm as the flavors shift at diff. temperatures. Good!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Nice lacing. Very thin mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Nose is dough, bread, grain, very earthy. Taste is mostly the same. Not my favorite beer, but nicely done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I needed pliers to free the cork from this 750, but when I got it, it came out without a sound. It poured with a nice creamy head and deep chestnut color. The head recedes after a bit. Delicately carbonated with a wonderful mouthfeel. Aroma is earthy with a nice balance between fruity yeast, clean spicy hops and a malty caramel and molasses richness. Flavors of above plus fruit, dried and fresh, a healthy sweetness and a very full, pleasing finish, with a bit of mineral bite (iron?) and faint sourness. This stuff is superb. I don’t actually detect the buckwheat, but this is a winner. Almost has a barleywine character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper hazy pour. Spicy nose with a moderate head. Bit of a sour note on mouth, but decent complexity and overall not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden ale with high CO2 and huge head. Good belgian aroma, but not particularly strong. Well balanced taste, but too weak finish. Does not fit with the commercial description.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick light tan head, dark red brown color. Malt and spice in the aroma. Clean taste of dark fruit, with molasses, smooth malt; there is some lingering sourness that cuts the sweetness nicely. Light to medium on the palate, very smooth. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma was moderate caramel with a floral hint, and soapy scent. Notes of apples and honey as well. Beautiful murky body with small particles of average density and dark brown in color. Large frothy light brown head with good lacing. Flavor was bittersweet, average duration. Taste of apples and malt. Medium body texture was oily and flat. Overall definatly something to buy age and drink.
