4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle to Chimay glass. Cloudy dark gold pour. Looks great and a surprising amount of carbonation for the age. Bready aroma. Taste is amazing especially for the age. Very fragrant and flowery lime flavor dominates. So good. After a few sips the farmhouse and bittering hop qualities start to make their presence known. Very impressive how well this held up.. Iíd buy a pint of it on tap tomorrow.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes. Tasted on 12/12/12 from a capped 22oz bottle with Curtis, and the Nashville crew. Pours hazy bright orange with a minimal white head that quickly disappears. The nose is showing pretty heavy nutty oxidation, touch of banana, very malty, almost smells like a coconut curry. The flavor is very interesting, lime, coconut curry, tons of caramel malt, and banana yeast, but showing quite a bit of the same nutty oxidation from the nose. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long malty banana and curry finish.

On tap at the Escondido brewpub - Blonde amber pour with a filmy white head. Odd minty note with sweet tropical fruity notes. Pear and overripe banana. Pineapple juice. Taste is pineapple, honey, sweet malt, and a sticky sweet finish. Slick with a thin body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at stone co store. Clear gold pour, white head and lacing. Smells old and decaying. Cardboard, garbage, cloves, overripe banana. This is the banana cream pie you forgot about too long but then ate anyway out of remorse and self punishment. Taste: sweet up front. Floral, sort of like banana perfume. Twist of faded lime. Dry empty finish. Palate: body is fullish, but texture remarkably thin. Oily with lively carbonation. Overall: only $3 for this 4oz pour which I appreciate. Perfect example of a beer that is too old. Sad.
