PorterPounder (5367) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverages - 750 ml bottle. Pours a dark murky orange with a sticky, persistent white head. Pleasant fruity aroma with hints of citrus, pears and some floral notes. Flavor is tangy with some yeasty notes, some muted citrus, a bit of alcohol and a buttery back end. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of carbonation. Not bad - but a bit "hot" with the omnipresent alcohol presence.

Pours a bright cloudy yellow with lots of white lacing. Aroma of spice ,yeast, hay, and a little banana. Tastes a lot like it smells: spicy, Belgium yeast, esters, banana, with an after kick of alcohol. This is a nice beer, complex but drinkable.

Big lemon honey nose, some biscuit, slight pine. Deep Gold, fluffy head. sweet honey biscuit with a tart and big hop bitter presence--nicely balanced. Big carbonation, medium body, slight funky leather citrus finish, lots of alcohol warmth. Great beer, flavors are huge but controlled well. This will age nicely.

Golden pour with a huge white head and very effervescent. Aromas of spice, hops, fruit, and some yeast. Flavor is super smooth, dry, and has a slight burn for the alcohol, but still exceptionally drinkable.
