3/6/12. 750mL bottle thanks to Larry! Clear light amber pour with a small khaki head that fades. Light, estery aroma with touches of yeast, citrus, and plenty more fruitiness. Fruity, yeasty flavor, plenty of sweet esters, touches of brown sugar, and more lingering citrus. Not bad!

Bomber that was about 4+ years old. Amber with no head. malt nose with noticeable alcohol. Alcohol hugely apparent in flavor. Some malt but this is very alcoholic. Could just be too old. A bit of a dubble in the profile.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours golden with a large white head. The aroma is citrus with perfumy coriander, malty, hint of the start anise. The malts are stronger in the flavor, but the spicing is strong enough to keep the sweetness in balance. A nice beer, makes me think of spring.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2012 Open a bottle from ’09 in Jan. 2012. A: caramel, herbs, coriander, clove, toast. A: dark golden color, things floating about. T: rich caramelized sugars, countered by hops, and a hint of toast brioche. Texture is thick. I like to enjoy this beer very slowly because of it’s complex characters. I was amazing by this beer and will by it again as soon as I see it.

Starker Gewürzantrunk, der unausgeglichen und recht süß daherkommt. Süß bleibend, disharmonisch, nicht sonderlich. Holzig, dann süße Gewürze, langer malzig angehauchter Holzabgang. 7/6/8/7/6/6

750 ML Bottle f/Secret Santa-Hazy golden pour w/a moderate white foamy head. Sweet, spiced aroma. Flavors of wheat, grain, spice, citrus, colander, this is a Hefe on steroids! Had quite a bit of kick to it, a definate after dinner sipper! Alcohol was quite evedent, was a good brew on a cold winter night...Christmas Eve to be exact! Thanks Santa!!

Draft at Iron Abbey with Ann and Bobby. Pours a hazy orange with some lasting head. Nice spicy Belgian nose. Star anise is a little overpowering. Taste is pretty good, but again the star anise sticks out, and i’m not sure licorice taste goes well with a light beer like this. At least for my tastes.

Tap: Cloudy gold with white head. Rubbery aroma with rich spices and some fruit. Good clean, crisp taste with typical Belgian qualities, but not overdone. Nice finish as well. Not a fan of Belgians, but this one is tasty!

Nice looking dark orange brew. It is as refreshing as it looks. Pleasant orange aftertaste.
