3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a trade that I drank with Max and Andy prior to our Montreal and VT trip. Pours a lightly hazed amber red with a medium to large white beige head. Some slight age on it, but that’s my fault. Malt, toast. I don’t really get the oak or much else. Medium bodied, toast, malt. Easy drinking but really not a lot going on.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11. Courtesy of Hopscotch.
Couleur cuivre, épaisse beige.
Houblonnée et citron, note de pamplemousse, fine note de vanille et de bois. Légèrement fruitée.
Le goût de tonneau est un peu en retrait et laisse aussi une bonne place pour le malt et caramel pour se faire noter parmi cette bière qui penche un peu plus sur le houblon.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle from bytemesis- thanks again! Pours a hazed amber with a big, frothy off-white head that eventually settles unevenly and laces the glass. Aroma of herbs, grass, oak, toffee, grapefruit peel, earth, and dust. Complex an dry on the nose. Flavor of oak, dried fruits, toffee, brown sugar, mellow citrus, herbs and leaves, and a bit of vanilla. Medium-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This is excellent. Really surpassed expectations. As complex an amber ale as I’ve ever had.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Deep dark caramel, moderate to thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet caramel and candied citrus malt aroma.   This smells or so damn good!   As I continue to smell this, I get fresh ripe orange as well.   I get oak and unbelieveably a sweet fresh citrus aspect.   I swear the orange aspect is just right up in my face.   I dont think I have had any beer that has been as citrusy fresh as this one.   Background of this one is oak, but up front it is just like a fresh orange.   Wow, odd considering I eat one orange a day.   I am amazed.   Its like a fresh orange with a bit of oak in the background.   Hops are minor.   Not really bitter at all.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   I am surprised as to how realistically citrusy this beer is.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is full of citrus and oak.   I am surprised to see a beer that has that much orange/citrus like flavor.   Very smooth, citrusy, with a soft background of oak.   This is quite the beer!   Never have I had a beer this citrusy.   Great stuff!   Thanks to OCBeerSociety for this amazing treat!
