3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle, bought online and tasted alongside vintages from 2003-2006 at a tasting with Chris, Dan and Greg. Served in a branded glass. Pours hazy golden-orange with a minimal off white head that fades quickly to a thin remnant. The nos has notes of caramel malts, subtle orange and banana, along with slight herbs and earth. There is also perhaps a hint of lime. The flavour begins with a very nice citric, honey-caramel moderate sweet maltiness, and progresses to a subtle earthy-bitter finish. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice brew that sits somewhere between a saison and a dubbel. 2012-08-04

Consumed 2/13, poured dark with a nice sweet aroma. Flavor has become roasted sweet mellow, with a flat feel, but still nice.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz. bottle served in a CCB snifter.
A: Pours a hazy apricot color with a ton of yeasty floaters in the pour. Some light splotches of lace are left down the glass.
S: Flowery and herbal with some light fruity undertones. Some plum with stale, oaty malts.
T: Paper and light oxidation with some light caramel malts. Flowery notes with some mild glue and light lime. A little prune-like oxidation.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Not much remaining on the flavor.
O: Did not enjoy this one at all. The lime notes seemed out of placed and it made the overall taste take on an Elmers glue-like flavor profile.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at churchkey 1/4/13....also a bottle 1/26/13(which was oxidized and drain poured) so i’ll rate the draft. Pours dark yellow, no head, minimal carbonation. Probably the most disappointing to the VEs to me because everyone said it held up great and I thought it was fairly bland. Sweet, kind of fruity, but not much going on. Possibly it was just too old.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 22 oz - Night of the Titans 2013) Clear golden pour with a fizzy white head. Lots of citrus and spicy yeast in the aroma. Surprising amount considering the age. Sweet citrus flavor at the start with a mildly dry malt middle and a very smooth and spicy Belgian yeast finish. Still has a nice smooth flavor to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Huge thanks to Tim and Rachel! Murky amber pour with some sediment and no head. How the hell does this still smell like booze? With more notes of orange pith, oxidation and sweet pale malts. Flavor is pretty similar with more candy sugar and yeast spice. Not terrible, they’re getting better.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Tim and Rachel. Pours a translucent copper with quickly dissipating head and no real lacing. Aroma is faint, belgian yeast and light citrus. Taste is faintly sweet, bitter citrus and a hint of belgian funk. All mild but really well balanced and the booze is well hidden. Pretty good.
