Bottle-conditioned. Deep orange color. Poured a nice head, faded with very little lace. Lotsa musky spice in the nose(orange peel?) some herbalness, fruty yeast, some malt. Beer really comes alive when it washed over the back of my tongue & lingers with citrus, carmelly malt, and bitterness. Flavors are interesting, but not sure I like the feel, and abit heavy. I’ve just started using O.peel in my brews, but I suspect that’s the flavor I’m getting in this, pretty strongly. It is enjoyable, to an extent. A nice beer for tasting, not one I’d be able to drink with much regularity(too much spice/Opeel for me), but not every beer is an everyday beer.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 Rerated 2004 Bottle pours deep orange, cloudy, large off-white froamy head, with fairly attractive lacing.   Lots going on in the aroma; apricots, flora, spices, slightly yeastie, and citrusy.   Up front its sweet and malty, slightly citrusty with hints of corriander.   Fairly bold body, with a medium to full mouthfeel.   Finishes a bit estery, lots more orange peel, and quite bready.   Better this year than last.   Along with Wildcat, one of the better Snoqualmie brews.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Fruity orange, yeasty, spicy, aroma; strong corrinder spice and full bodied flavor with orange peel and floral hoppiness apparent; rich and malty, and fairly complex; little heavy on the spice side for me, but pretty good and definitely different.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Reddish amber color. Pours with a large white head that quickly diminishes to virtually nothing. Strong perfumy aroma of orange, some grapefruit, yeast, and spice. Smooth and creamy textures with flavors of bread like yeast, citrus, spice, and a mild hop bitter finish. The finish is mild but long lasting. A nice attempt at a Belgian Ale.

Darkish amber color, with a Belgian yeast flavor. Not much head retention. A good, but not great, attempt at a Belgian ale.

boto (1981) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Bottle: The beer is a dark orange-red color. I didn't get much head on mine, and it didn't last or lace. Some corriander and yeastiness to the aroma. Also some hops. The taste is a bit of the same: corriander, yeastiness and some hops. Not bitter, but I can taste the hops. They distract from the rest of the flavors a bit. The rest of the beer isn't quite full enough to stand up to them. Stil, very tasty.

An effort at replicating a Belgian beer. A little sour, fruity a bit of bread. Bland aroma. It is ok but not a great one

Surprisingly I didn't really catch the Belgian yeast so much here (maybe my Belgain senses were fried from the Lucifer I had just before it). The coriander comes through really clearly as a nice citrus flavor, lemony not acid-like or as a hoppy bitter - very nice mouthfeel actually. All the fruit in the deScription was present and very well balanced - a great spring (or summer) time beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2003
This really wasn't too bad. Lots of belgian flavor up front. Nice hops and malt characteristics. Not immensly complex, but very good none the less. Drinkable and enjoyable.

Brown in color with fluffy tan head. The nose has light fruit and coffee? Flavor is yeasty, with toffee and malt.
