HonusWagner (1682) - Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Review nine nine nine. Pours a very pretty golden yellow hue. Nose not what I expected without looking into the beerís style or ABV, a bit of alcohol fumes but very good belgian estery character, pear/apple/peppery spice. Taste is moderately sweet but finishes clean enough, some more green pear and a bit of spice in the finish. Another really good beer from Stillwater, they are consistently impressive despite this being a dip into a style Iím not all that fond of.

commonshawn (516) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle from Haskells with commonmac and rosskyle. Hazy gold orange with frothy white head and lots of sediment. Citrus peel, yeast, and banana, clove in nose. Citrus, then lots of yeast, then tart . Leaves some tart gritty finish. Even though the sediment was a bit much, but I like that taste . I will follow.

commonmac (510) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2015
12 oz bottle purchased at Haskells. Only one more until 500! Plenty of sediment and a golden orange color. Minimal head but itís persistent. Aroma brings yeast, banana, citrus (lemon), vanilla, and earthy/grassy tone. Taste has some spice characteristics with the banana and almost wheat abilities popping up. Citrus and hops come back towards the end. A softer mouthfeel. Pretty complex Belgian and one I would definitely sample again. Like a saison hooked up with a tripel.

cheap (4390) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Trippel or belgie strong? Big clumpy lighter hefe looking pour from this bottle dated one year ago. Somewhat metal tart smell. Hey, pretty good cutting co2! Sizzle is much more pleasant than expected. Yes, covers the alky effect quite well but after it settles in your mouth a little alkyís quite apparent. It os fairly well done for a domestic wannah be. Seems that tart thing is hiding in the background wanting to stick its head out. Slight medicinal belgy ale finish. Yes, almost could pass as a trippel. Wew. Yes, difficult at times but that almost tart yeast thing makes interesting thru-out. OK, not one of the worst 9% beers Iíve tasted.

Garrold (2152) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Harrogate Fine Wines. Hazy gold. Foamy, lasting, white head. Very toasty. Fresh pineapple. Yeast. Some sweet, ice cream thing going on. At the back of that, there are creamy, toffee malts. Some banana esters. Taste is light, yeasty dry, and light bitter. Soft, unctuous palate. Carbonation is soft, and full. Finish errs on the fruity sweet, with a light dry close. Very drinkable. Comes across nowhere near 9%.
