3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. Pours a slightly hazy golden body under a nice dense head. Orangey hops dominates the aroma, with some herbal notes and a malty sweetish aroma to give some balance. Sweet and fruity in the mouth, with white sugar, some alcohol and caramel. Full-bodied, slightly warming. Sweet finish. A nice beer, but too strange to be real good. (081229)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden particulate-filled body topped by big off-white head. Aroma is banana, some clove. Taste is medium sweet, banana, coriander, finishing with alcohol, giving the impression of a banana liqueur. Medium-full body. I will be curious to see how this will age, but at this point I am not overly impressed.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. Itís very clean. Thereís no heat. Finishes dry and something like a bitter wood - or maybe a lime leaf. Itís pretty tasty for over 8 years old, but Iím thinking it was kept chilled all that time.

hazy dark yellow, spicy moldy horse blanket aroma, dry malt flavor with a nice dose of spices, light body, will age help this beer?

The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a burnt orange color with some hints of gold and a fingerís worth of white head.
S: The nose is quite sweet and surprisingly citrus heavy. A few more sniffs give off some vanilla, honey, and yeast esters (namely bananas).
T: A similar story on the palate. Sweet vanilla, orange honey, and banana along with some spicy esters and caramel malt. A touch of tropical fruit, too.
M: The body is on the light end of medium with a carbonation that seems to be a bit low too.
D: The low carbonation does not do much to quell the intense sweetness of this beer. Good flavors, but like drinking a sweet mead at times.
