Bottle thanks to skinnyguy! Clear orange pour, minimal carbonation and an aroma of slightly oxidized Belgiany yeast. Flavor is lightly oxidized malt, sweet and slightly bitter dry banana. Holding up very well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright gold pour with not much head. A lot of honey in the aroma and it is prevalent in the taste. Most of the cinnamon is missing due to age.

On tap from the cellar @ Brouwers. Pours bright golden with thin white head. Aroma is cinnamon sugar, banana, and rich bitter. Weird, I know. Taste is smooth golden pale malt with a mellow bitter finish. Oaky, aged flavors throughout. Likely due to the 9 years this has sat around. Not spectacular, but how could you pass something like this up?

Darker than night, but with a very strong warm scent like fresh banana bread. Sweet, bitter, fizzy.

Started our vertical with the 04. Lot’s of yeast. Kind of like a Fat Tire mated with a port. Backgrounds of citrus, but it reminds me much more of an aged wine than a beer.

Lots of musty basement and honey wheaty notes. Pears apple and yeasty spice. Pours bright orange golden pour, nice fizzy head. Flavors of honey, wheat, banana, musty basement notes some lime and citrus as well. Big fizzy bubbly body with good effervescence. Lingering banana basement bread and honey. Interesting aged beer.

22 oz. bottle, sent from St Fun (thanks a lot, Josh), pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, perfume, some floral notes, and a bit of oxidation. Flavour brings out notes of perfume, citrus fruits, some floral notes, and light spices. Somewhere between a saison and a light Belgian strong ale. Past its prime for sure, but not too oxidized. Good stuff.
