3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light aroma, a bit grassy with a hint of lemon and some sweet syrup on the tail end. An opaque amber with a thin white head. It’s far more bubbly then I expected considering its age. There’s not much there, again a bit of lemon, maybe a hint of coriander and some hops. A bit of spice and fruit. It doesn’t taste like it has been ruined but certainly tastes old.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Tasted on 12/12/12 from a capped 22oz bottle with Curtis, and the Nashville crew. Pours murky burnt orange with no head, but just a few thin bubbles. The nose is showing some oxidation, tons of orange peel and over-ripe apricot, some bread malt and spicy yeast. The flavor is all about the bitter orange peel and juicy apricot, with some malt and yeast, and some oxidation setting in. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long malty caramel, apricot, and lightly bitter orange peel finish.

Had it in January 2012. Poured thick and cloudy. Lots of sediment. Mostly flat but that’s to be expected. Sweet and sticky like any other beer of this style. Held up well.

FROM NOTES: July 3, ’12
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Stone pint glass. Have a 2nd bottle cellared.

T: Pine and grass notes with lemon citrus flavors as well. Wheat. Light coriander and spice. Slight alcohol burn.
P: Creamy and smooth. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends dry and weedy.
O: Somewhat drinkable, I’m very excited to see how it tastes in December ’12. Glad I have one cellared, but wouldn’t seek it out at the going rates

Finally got to try it! once from a bottle that was infected and on draft at the 2013 Stone winter Storm. Nice citrusy notes with a faint Belgian yeast kick. Held up better than I thought it would.
