Sample from a 22oz bottle. Clear yellow orange gold color. Minimal khaki head. Some orange citrus floral nose. Kind of bigger body. Lighter but kind of pronounced carbonation. Light sour, mild bitter taste. Yeasty, bit medicinal? Not digging it

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.

Cracked this one on 09.13.2008. Murky orange/yellow with a viscous eggshell head. Nice aroma is dusty pale malts with yeasty banana and sweet citrus/spices. medium body with mild carbonation. Decent flavor is bready malt with some wheat malt tartness. Has a drying citrus spicy alcohol twang to finish. No real oxidation in taste or aroma. Some beers age well, some don’t; this didn’t.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle shared by Matt. Pours a murky dark amber orange pour, vicious glow with a good healthy haze, a decent bright white frothy head that laces ok. Aromas are citrusy, oxidzed malts, lemons and oranges, touches of bread dough, spice, vibrant oranges really seem to dominate. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied offering a decent bitterness, dry florals and citrus, oranges, spice, bread dough, pale malts, and a touch of spice. Really lost much of it’s base beer with age. Finish is lingering malts, bread, some toast, vibrant citrusy orange, some lemons, oxidized malts, cardboard, touch of suntan lotion. Ok, but it’s age shows. Give it the benefit of the doubt here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Belgian style, obvious Belgian influences, with the yeast and orange peel characters. But i tasted a lot of American style hops in here (could be wrong, i dunno). Didn’t taste particularly Belgian to me. Interesting all same. Probably have to hang on to a bottle to let in soften. A little too much alcohol showing in the finish.

(Draught) clear medium gold, no head. Nose of lime, spice, alcohol, aged hops. Taste is very herbal, spicy, hops held up surprisingly well, a bit of alcohol heat, interesting.
