Served in a Stone Vertical Epic glass. Dry and bready. Medium body. A touch of yeast spice, but mostly just taste like bread. Meh.

Thanks to the Thorpes for sharing.
The beer is bright orange and hazy with a thin white head. The aroma offers mint, tea, citrus, malt, lime, kiwi. The flavor is a bit odd, showing signs of age. Well water, oranges, light toffee. Light in body with low carbonation. This was ok.

Tap at City Beer. Pours clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly fruity. Maybe a touch of banana ester. Med body. Mild carb. Flavor is slightly woody/astringent with some Belgian yeast/spice and some lime/citrus. Hints of toffee. It’s very clean. There’s no heat. Finishes dry and something like a bitter wood - or maybe a lime leaf. It’s pretty tasty for over 8 years old, but I’m thinking it was kept chilled all that time.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Alewife’s Vertical Epic event - $8 for a 6 ounce pour. It was an interesting concept - offering all the still available Vertical Epics at one time and place. This was a good golden Belgian, with yeast, raisin, and biscuit flavors. It still tasted fresh after 8 years!

On tap at City Beer. Pours golden blonde with a modest off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty sweet molasses and fruit flavor with the lime very evident, and a slightly bitter finish.
