3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally got around to rating this one, 5 years after it was made but figure what the heck. Amber with a nice white head that fades to pretty much nothing. Quite boozy at first but with some time to air out things become more balanced. Candied sugar with a nice blended citrus aroma, alcohol, some belgian yeast, orange zest and rind. Moderate carbonation and body, somewhat sweet, becomes dry and a bit bitter, a bit boozy on the finish but still worthwhile.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, at Aces & Ales. Brassy gold body, hazy, with an orange luster. Aroma is sweet, honeysuckle, light spice, light yeast, undefined fruit. Palate is sticky but not cloying, sweet malts that lean toward floral honey, dried peaches, lightly spicy. No hop bitterness to speak of, but more of a sweet treat that calls to mind sauterne, but without any petroleum or funky depths. I was expecting more hops, but even without having my expectations met, I wasn’t disappointed.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
The aroma was nice, fruity and spicy. It poured a beautiful pale golden color. The taste was sweet up front but had a nice clean, dry finish. I didn’t get any hop character out of it though perhaps it didn’t age well. Still an excellent beer.
