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.. Iíd buy a pint of it on tap tomorrow.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Lord Hobo, on 12/15/12. We got to enjoy the left over Stone from the 12/12/12 event. Aroma of banana, clove, caramel and spice. Taste of yeast and the lime really makes it somewhat sour for me. Oxidation is all over this brew and it shows mineral water notes.The lime with age didnít really work for me. Medium body and flat carbonation. For 8 years old not terrible.

Tap at CK for 12.12.12. VE night. Thanks to Travlr for the pour. Full haze lighter golden to straw pour. Good white foam dwindling. Spotty lacing. Nose is full on perfume, candied orange peel, lemon verbana, sage, rosemary, white pepper. Very perfumey. I like these types of beers though :-) Taste is spicy, herbal, big sage, garden freshness, rose hips. Iím down with this. Oily to near sticky palate doesnít ruin it thankfully.

Draft at Hopleaf. Pours a deep gold with a sticky white head. The nose is light sweet lime, herbal overall. Light fruity esters and faint phenol. Clean. On tasting, moderate bitterness and a strong herbal hop flavor persists through the finish. Really drinkable. Light oxidation and sweetness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clearer amber with a white head. The aroma brings some refreshing, dare I say spritzy, lime sweetness still after 8 years! The flavor brings a still somewhat crisp, lightly sweet, golden ale with residual pleasant flavors of the lime and notes of the Belgian yeast. Wow - still holding up overall pretty well after 8 years.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared at Brendanís 12/12/12 party! Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a small white head that fades. Light aroma, of yeast, a hint of bandaid, malt, sugar. Taste is bright and sweet, of malt, yeast, sugar, wheat, a hint of lime, banana, caramel. Lingering lime and wheat. Not as nice as the others, but not bad.
