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.

Bottle, shared at Brendan’s 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.

Bomber thanks to someone a bit ago. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is a stale cuppa tea, some grains and lemon. The flavor is also tea-like with some paper, light fruit and banana. Of course it is downhill, but I kind liked it.

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.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. This shows solid signs of oxidization. Fruity, cardboard, mint, peach. This finished very dry. Meh.
