4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
At Falling Rock 12/15/2012. Murky kinda opaque golden/copper with a fluffy white head with lots of lace. Nice perfumy aroma of grapes, fresh cut flowers, spicy orange zest. Flavor was zesty and smooth with a kind of wine-like essence, nice floral yet subtle hoppy bitterness, a little orange, and some gentle oak and toffee. Very nicely balanced and smooth, with nothing offending or too heavy.

On two at ChurchKey in DC. OMG THIS IS EPPICK!!! Beautiful golden color with a small white head and great lacing. Honey, lime, and wheat aroma with sherry oxidation. Nice but oxidized flavor with wheat, honey, lime, and sugar. Medium-full body with a smooth mouthfeel and lowish carbonation. Surprisingly tasty brew.

Maybe it’s the age...but...not much aroma to this beer. If anything, reminiscent of a saké than anything else. Flavor brings out some more complexity and is sweet, but still a bit of a let down.

12oz from tap at Brouwer’s in Seattle, leftover from Vertical Epic night. Rich orange, grayish head. Sweet orange, yeast, spice. Juicy body with some sweet herb spicing. Tasty for an American belgian style, quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brouwer’s for 12/12/12. Light transparent IPA orange. Caramel and booze-soaked citrus. Some oak, and lemon candy. Quite juicy, and not in the least bit dry. Somewhat like a stale (but quite tasty) DIPA. I like it.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle to Chimay glass. Cloudy dark gold pour. Looks great and a surprising amount of carbonation for the age. Bready aroma. Taste is amazing especially for the age. Very fragrant and flowery lime flavor dominates. So good. After a few sips the farmhouse and bittering hop qualities start to make their presence known. Very impressive how well this held up.. I’d buy a pint of it on tap tomorrow.
