On tap at Mash Tun Festival 2013. Hazy amber with a white head. Nose is sweet with fruits, pale malts, toffee, and herbs. Flavor is on the fruity side - spice, caramel, grass, candi sugar. Some subtle spice in the finish, alcohol is masked well.

Bottle @ Armin’s apartment. Thanks Armin! Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a pretty decent off white head. Light cardboard, big cane sugar, peachy, lemon aroma. Tangy, cloying, white sugar, banana, lemon, apple flavor. Booze is covered actually pretty well but it is quite sweet. Scroll past.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, lasts fairly decently. Aroma brought notes of big candi sugar, fruity notes, slight spice into big white fruit, caramel, sugary sweet notes, slight grass, hints of grain, straw. Taste is a mix of grass, straw, slight earth into big white fruit, lots of candied orange, lots of biscuit, caramel, finishing sweet, very sugary, really no booze.

Drank more like a saison. Tasty and enjoyable but an interesting brew. Color was slightly cloudy and pale yellow with a nice white head. Smelled of wet grass and faintly hoppy. Tasty but odd. Really earthy and dry. I wasn’t expecting the style to be so much like a saison.

Crisp fruit nose. More fruit on palate with some citrus and candi sugar sweetness. Good stuff

Patrickctenchi (3718) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Dirty, yellow-amber with a thin, white head. Scent of barn dust, tangy caramel.... Flavour is a little boozy, caramel, yeast, apples and bread. Very complex.....very big. Alcohol is noticeable, but really sedate for the ABV...

Bomber poured a hazy amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of bread, earthiness, pear, yeast, light vanilla and light pineapple. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of straw, yeast, pear, pineapple and light spice with a smooth lingering fruity finish.

Headbanger (3311) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2013
22oz bottle 8/28/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a clear yellowish golden with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of yeast, candy sugar, citrus, and malt. Taste of the same with yeast and citrus coming through as well as a little alcohol. This full bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth which is a bit troubling for the drinker.

22 ounce bottle in a tulip glass. Aroma is pears and apples, smells and looks like champagne. Pale yellow, straw appearance, very bubbly. Taste was not nearly as boozy as I had expected. My first thought was that they were bluffing on the 16% abv in order to conveniently match up with the anniversary number, but after about 15 minutes and an impaired set of senses, I didn’t doubt it as much. In other words, this stuff is impressively drinkable. Floral and pungent like powerful wine, and still smooth and light bodied. Taste is like the nose with pears and apples and floral notes. Obviously sweet and only a background of booziness. Overall, a bit of a gimmick that should be approached delicately. I would like to share a bottle of this with others, because anything more than a few ounces is a handful.

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is Belgian yeast, lemon and straw esters. Taste follows, a hint of that peppery note from the yeast, but no real booziness. Solid, nothing crazy but a good beer.
