3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a murky orange color with a lot of sediment and a slight white head. Aroma of fruit and yeast. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is very fruity with a lot of apricot to it. A lot of spices in this, maybe some ginger and cinnamon. Alcohol is very present in its finish. A very nice beer. Thanks to HomeBrewHawk for the bottle. Very generous.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with almost no head. Syrupy thick body. Fruity aroma with some hops, malt and candy. Hoppy bitter taste giving way to an amazingly flavorful sharp fruity taste. Sweet malty and spicy notes. Absolutely amazing. Warm thick body with a great lingering taste, makes my mouth water.

Bottle from a secret source. Pours with a traditional hefe look with a cloudy golden hue. The nose is incredible, ripe banana, clove and ginger pop right out of the bottle. The flavor was fantastic with insane malts working in unison with the hops for a perfect balance. This one is a winner, and the best part of all is Iíve got 6 more that Iím gonna keep in the cooler for a few years, then they should be even more kick-ass! NICE BELGIAN STONE

22 oz. .. copper pour with lots of particles. lt white/tan head. .. Fruity aromas - belgiany w/ plum, peach, apricot. Some hops in there but not much.. .. Carmelly malty flavors with sour and spicy (cardamom?) notes. .. Medium body, med carbonation. .. Very interesting and tasty beer. Iíd definitely rate this as one of the better Belgian style beers Iíve tried.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden/yellow, thin white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander, ginger, and other spices. Flavor is citrus, fruity, halfway between a Saison and a Tripel (pretty much as advertised). This is fantastic stuff. I love it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hint of cinnamon with a granny smith apple. Apple cinnamon candle aroma. Smells like Christmas. Weak head with minimal lacing. Copper in color.Creamy texture with a long finish. Malty taste like peanut butter. I thought the older vintage would be better than the new vintage but thus far not true. I guess I will find out.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours medium yellow and clear. Aroma is of spice, bread, and vinilla. Flavor is cloeing sweet and over the top spicy. Cinnimon and cloves, corriander and others? and alcohol. Once again an american brewery thinks a belgian style of beer should be sweet and spicy. Better luck next year.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This one pours a deep orange with a clean white head that fades fast. The nose comes across as a typical beligian with cloves, candy sugar, and some noticeable spices such as coriander. and maybe some orange peel. I was expecting something else, so this is kind of a shock. Itís not bad, but I can get a kasteel somewhere anytime and I think the Kasteel would be better. Itís very good, and nothing to be ashamed of, but Iím not sure if this one will age as well as the 6-6-06, but we will see
