3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at Falling Rock’s Vertical Epic event, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma surprisingly brought brown sugar, vanilla, toffee, some slight earth, then it went into the more predictable lemon, orange, grape, and slight herbal notes, ever so slight oxidation but not bad, especially as it warmed up. Taste is a nice mix of brown sugar and vanilla, mixing into orange, biscuit, bread, hints of earth, slight orange, grape, pear notes, a slightly weird herbal note, finished fairly sweet.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 Kaffir lime leaves and citrus zest create an enticing perfumy mist over the ample malt background...Wheat is apparent and plays off the lemony spiciness quite effectively...A curious novelty ale which caresses the tastebuds pleasurably for a while but gets a bit tiring towards the end of the glass...A très spicy lifestyle...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky golden orange, yeast is powerful in the nose along with big bananas and apricots, and even some coconut and sweet bready apples. Bright and sweet apples and cake flavors, really too sweet but very nice.

On tap at Flying Saucer for 12-12-12. Pours a clear orange gold with paperthin wht head that diminishes to nothing. Aroma is faint yeast and clove. Medium mouthfeel with strong banana and lime, light booze, held up well.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with a small diminishing white head. The aroma is citrus hops (could be lime, but I think more lemony) and sweet caramel malts. The flavor is much of the same. The fact that this beer was not quite up to the 03 was disappointing. I wounder how this will age? Any chance it improves? Time will tell.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Golden beer with a good white head. Aroma is a mixture of yeast, hops, lime, and malt with the lime and banana dominating. Taste is of yeast and malt with a little citrus - a slightly heavier wit beer with more depth. Very good beer that finishes clean, smooth, and has you wanting more. Alcohol is there, but not too strong. Not your typical Stone and I wish it would become a regular... Should not be classified as a Belgian strong ale - much less sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Managed to find a bottle of this. Poured out with ample carbonation to bring about a thick white head. The color has a hazy orange-ish hue. I get the aroma of lime and banana mixed with alcohol, interesting. There is a bit of malt aroma hiding out in the back. The taste reminds me of many a Belgium type beer with the spice presence along with the twisted yeast-lime-banana-hop combination. The flavors are just picked from the garden fresh.
