3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber thanks to someone a bit ago. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is a stale cuppa tea, some grains and lemon. The flavor is also tea-like with some paper, light fruit and banana. Of course it is downhill, but I kind liked it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. This shows solid signs of oxidization. Fruity, cardboard, mint, peach. This finished very dry. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20th November 2010
Cloudy gold - amber beer. Small off white head. Light semi soft palate. Sweet tripel like malts with herbs and spice. Seamless blend of ginger, lemon, floral things and a little sherbet. Finishes semi soft and semi dry. A few oxidisation notes at the start but they burned off quickly. If you have one of these - I would drink now!

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought this bottle, just to try and I wasnt dissapointed. Yes it has overtones of bananas and first taste I could definitely taste chilis on my palette. A thin white head when poured from bottle. Heavy carmel coloring that has definite appeal to it. I was quite surprised by the taste. I would use this as a opening beer on a tasting tray. I think it would surprise even the most discerning beer drinker.

Pours a cloudy orange body with a thin white head. Some banana, caramel, and spicy yeast. A bit thin but has held up better than I anticipated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber pour, with white head. Caramel, dusty bread, somewhat stale, yeast, light spice still hanging in there. Sure itís over the hill, but itís not terrible. Excited that I got to try it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a darker yellow to amber color with a small white head. Aroma was yeasty, and some spices, didnt really pick up the lime here, and some metalic notes too. Flavor was a bit of oxidation and minerals. some saison yeast and must and spice. Past its prime but not terrible.

Bottle shared by madsberg. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The aroma is oranges, lime, caramel, light yeat and sweet caramel. The flavour is spicy lime, lemon grass, oranges, caramel, light yeast and citrus. Taken the age its a very good blonde ale. Thanks Mads!
