3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Straw in color, hazy, large rocky white head, nice lacing.   Powdery floral nose, very bright, pale hopiness, and copious alcohol.   Bright unripened fruit and bright floral notes on the tongue.   Its almost too bright as its a little brash.   Very spritzy and bubbley on the tongue.   Seems more Belgian than American, but the hops are there.   Seems lots of unripened fruit on the exit.   A little boozy, but not overly alcoholic.   It is warming, thats for sure!   Lingering floral notes, powdery, with a hop background.   Not bad, a little brash tho.

Bottled. Cloudy golden with a high, fine head. Nice citrus hop nose, oranges and peaches. Light spice, clean biscuity malt. Full, sweet malt flavor, quite spicy, big citrus hops. Nicely bitter finish. A bit on the sweet side, but very crisp and clean finish with great hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially large, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with notes of lemon peel, pepper, wintergreen, alcohol.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Nicely aromatic and pleasantly balanced (dry, not syrupy sweet). Nice tangy yeast. It doesn’t excite me, but for a big spiced Belgian golden, it’s quite enjoyable. Less alcohol would have been preferable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, corked and baled. Pours a brilliant pale gold with a towering, surging, frothy platinum blonde head. Nice spicy nose--showing some dark roasting spices and some orange peel. Maybe cardamom. Fizzy crisp light body. Bright lemon and orange along with bitey spices on the mid-palate, all on top of a toasty malt base. Crisp finish. Very refreshing and pleasant, especially given the alcohol...which does not show at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ The Trappist, Oakland. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours a slightly cloudy, bright yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of really strong spices, nutmeg and rosebud, not much else. Flavour of strong spices, rosebud, yeast, lemon zest, grass and weak maltiness. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and a warming spicy finish. Way too spicy as it runs over pretty much everything.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
9/26/10. 750mL bottle. Cloudy orange pour with a huge thick but fizzy white head that cuts in half and lasts. Huge spicy aroma with phenols, yeast, rye, orange peel, skunk, pee, and more. Very sweet flavor of malt and orange peel with a yeasty kick. The flavor is a little light and hard to perceive because of the huge bubbly carbonation - almost too much there.
