4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong, malty fruity aroma has a subtle undertone of yeast and a hint of - is that coriander? Yes, coriander! It pours a beautiful clear solar yellow with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent white head. Flavor bursts with malt, orange, apple and butterscotch with a bit of a hoppy undertone and hints of yeast and coriander. Smooth, firm texture has a decent amount of fizz and leaves a nice fruity finish that has hints of coriander and hops. Special indeed! BTW I’m drinking this while watching the transit of Venus on-line, for what that’s worth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange pour with nice carbonation streamers and a thin white head. Aroma is musty with some coriander and orange. Nice mouthfeel with a peppery, spicy citrus flavor up front. Middle is a bit more yeasty with a bitter, almost tangy back end. Has enough body to support the alcohol and seems best suited to a long session of slow sipping. This is a pretty good brew!!

This is a Delicious beer. It looks great, it smells great, and it tastes great. I enjoyed the flavor a lot. You can pick up a vanilla and banana flavor to it. If you get a chance give this one a try.

Appearance - Cloudy, golden, thin lacing
Aroma - Oranges, yeast, vanilla, spices
Taste - Dried pineapple, grapefruit, yeast, bread, light hops
This is another fine job by Terrapin. The nose greets you with what is an "authentic" Belgian aroma - lots of yeast, light fruits and spices that make for an enticing scent. The body follows as so, but with a very satisfying grapefruit finish that sweetens up, leaving the mouth sticky and full of yeast flavors. Wouldn’t guess the high abv, however, because it is very easy to drink. I’m sure aging would do fantastic things here. A big thanks to OmegaX for this brew!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden color. Smells rather barnyardy: some hay and funk on the nose. Medium-heavy body, somewhat bitter and more saison-ish flavor, spicy dry finish. Also finishes fairly hot, which makes sense considering the abv Pretty good overall, but nothing to write home about.
