12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper/orange color with a small light white head. Aroma is very juicy and tropical. In particular, grapefruit and pineapple. Taste is mango, citrus, caramel malt, and a nice bitter hoppiness on the finish.

Wow the aroma is a huge blast of citra hops. The flavor is grapefruit, apple, pineapple, and a really nice citrus flavor, super balanced beer. Wow I need to get a sixer next time!!

Härligt frisk doft. Mycket citra toner. Smakar torrt medelfyllig. Lite väl mycket kolsyrad dock. En bra sommar öl.

SlackerMads (2089) - DENMARK - MAR 21, 2013
Tap. Hazy light orange with a large frothy off white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is super fresh citrus and peach with some light caramel malt beneath. Taste is light/medium bitter and medium sweet. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Light bitter citrus finish. Very poundable.

I have loved this beer ever since I encountered its predecessor, Cenotaph. Zombie Dust has a wonderful citrus aroma imparted by the Citra hops which provide notes of grapefruit, lime and gooseberry. Hazy Golden-Amber in appearance, this beer has a flavor that is perfectly balanced. The powerful aromas are supported by a subtle yet substantial malt character and a pleasantly bitter finish. This effort by Three Floyds results in a highly flavorful yet remarkably drinkable ale.

At long last! Finally, I’ve had the legendary Zombie Dust. Appearance: Pours a typical APA color -- light orange. There’s a slight haze, and a nice, creamy-like head on it. Lacing’s patchy and not all that great, but it looks nice as a whole. Smell: Think Hopslam. It smells a lot like that. Zombie Dust is tied with Hopslam as the best beer that I have ever smelled ... absolutely outstanding. A huge burst of guava/peach/citrus along with some sweet hoppiness. Glorious. Taste/feel: Slightly letdown, though it’s still an insanely tasty beer. The aroma is stronger than the taste, but that’s not necessarily a terrible thing. Like many have said, this drinks more like an IPA than an APA... super tropical fruit flavors along with non-descript fruit and spice on this one. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, and the alcohol comes through a bit at times as well to dry the mouth, but me gusta. A proper amount of malt and spice on the finish to balance it all out pretty nicely. A great, GREAT beer, but a tinge overrated in my opinion, and I wouldn’t consider this a very sessionable beer (besides the 6.40%) due to the dryness. For the price, an unbelievable beer, and one of the best... $1.50 a bottle, fresh from the brewery? Doesn’t get better than that. Overall though, just an extremely good beer. Best beer ever? No, but close to it. Honestly, I feel like this would score slightly lower on a blind taste test. I think a good reason this beer is so acclaimed is because of its label, and especially, its name... America’s become obsessed with zombies the past few years.

bottle from Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Pours an amber/golden colour with a small white head. Fresh and fruity citrus, pine and malty flavour and aroma, grapefruit very prominent here, has a lovely palate/mouthfeel - very easy drinking for the abv. Beautiful drop this.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle split with Taylor from Mexican Food Factory. Many thanks! Aroma was apricot, grapefruit, and mango. Pours a hazy shade of orange with a great visible carbonation. Taste was full and fruity with grapefruit, peaches and a slight bitter grass. Mouthful was juicy and satisfying with a pretty clean finish. Very well crafted. Would love to have a fresher glass than the one I had.

Bottle. Taste is Florida grapefruit infused with booze, orange zest, grass and hay. Complex and excellent.
