3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had in March 2009, days short of the five-year mark of the bottle. First impression: It can’t be a hefe, but it strongly smells and tastes like a hefe, with orange and a unique kick-in of lime taste. Marvelous one-of-a-kind. Not lasting head, lighter colour.Above average mouthfeel.

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.

Pours an amber color with a hardly any head. Aroma of raisins, bread, and honey. Taste is bread, oxidation, banana and wet basement wood. This one suffered a bit from time.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal clear, light golden ale with a very small, creamy, white head. Spicy aroma with notes of lemon, banana, bubble gum, coriander and nutmeg. The flavor is very decently balanced despite the incredibly rich malt. Tangy and sweet. Full-bodied with a very oily mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Dry, spicy finish. I get no lime out of this beer in any way, shape or form. I hate lime anyway.

Cloudy amber with a tiny white head. Hoppy aroma with floral and malty hints. Sweet flavour with lavendar, hops and fruity notes. Finished dry and bitter.

"a strong saison indeed...or an UBER hefe...either way...pretty good stuff here. i wasn’t a big belgian fan when i first tried this but it sent me down that road. tasted mellower but possibly better 2 years later - haven’t had one since."

Bottle shared by Tim, thanks! Pours a clear amber with a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has notes of light flora and musty grain with a bit of earthiness. Flavor has light grain with a decent of mustiness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours turbid orangish with a John Madden sized white head. Aroma just like a bier de garde aroma, with citrus, malt, hops, some fruit, florals, peat, and slight lime. Tastes citrusy, dry, very bier de gardish, with a final dry, slightly sour burst of citrus, lime, peat, and banana. Good complexity and well hidden alcohol.

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. I’m down with this. Oily to near sticky palate doesn’t ruin it thankfully.
