Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
750ml bottle. Rating #435. Hazy orangish/yellow pour with a thin white head. Light metallic aroma, also has a candy sweetness to it and an apple fruitiness. A little booze, apple juice and a little bit in the aftertaste, not bad. (1874)

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Slightly hazy orange-yellow pour with a light tan head. Toasted malt aroma, nutty with notes of hay. Sweet flavor with light fruitiness. Slightly tart and a tone of alcohol on the finish.

750mL. From an old trade. Thanks to a generous ratebeerian! The pour is a hazy golden with a giant, off-white head erupting with Belgian yeast character: estery, pear, gold raisin, candi sugar, musty yeast. Smells similar actually to De Dolle Stille Nacht. Very rich, candy, golden fruit, and yeast dominant with a dose of spicy alcohol. Older, mustier, syrupy feeling. Taste is very sweet with maple, golden apples, Bosc pear, old cider, mild mealy red apple. Sticky, buttery, thick mouthfeel. Feels a little too buttery. Not bad for its age.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Golden color, fizzy white head that settles quickly. Aroma of bread and caramel. Taste is malty, bur decent bittering hops, a bit of a sour finish.

Picked up several months ago at Holiday Wine Cellar when they had a cellar sale ($12.99...they charged a bit more because of the vintage). Pours into my Unibroue tulip a hazy golden straw color with two fingers of white head and lots of suspended particles. Aroma of musty Unibroue yeast, bready malts, some caramel, and some apple. Flavor of rich spicy caramel, honey, sticky fruit, and more yeast. Prickly carbonation and well-concealed ABV. This is now over four years old...I had hoped for more complexity but itís still pretty good. (431, 566)

Bottle, generously brought out of the cellar by Vergil the beer guy at Radio Maria-- it wasnít even listed on the bottle menu! Hazy orange gold. Fruity spicy aroma, marmalade, ginger, barley candy. Flavours of barley candy, chestnuts, marzipan, heaps of spices, cherries, golden raisins. Crazy! Thank you so much Vergil!

750 ml bottle, and Iím pretty sure I got it at Friar Tuck in Savoy. Bottle marked í6 January 2006í. Pours a cloudy, dusty, orange-golden color with some sediment and a finger-thick but dense off-whtie head. Aroma of caramel malts, honey, apples, wood, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, and dry, musty grains. Flavor of sweet caramel malts, apples, Belgian yeast, wood, brown sugar, and grains. Mostly Iím getting caramel out of this. Medium-bodied, with a chewy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This has held up pretty well for 5 full years, as no signs of oxidation are present. The alcohol is also completely hidden. More drinkable than a lot of Unibroue beers and pretty nice overall.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
A: The pour is a clear golden-orange color with a very short lived white head. S: A really cidery nose that is super dry. I get mostly apples and white grapes, with maybe a touch of pale, cracker type malts. A bit of a sugar note is the only real sweetness to the aroma. T: Starts off with a semi-sweet white wine flavor and the same apple juice/cider character. Thereís a definite alcohol presence to this beer, and itís quite light overall, so not much to hide it. Surprisingly, not as dry as the nose would lead you to believe. M: The body is medium with a moderate to high level of carbonation. D: Seems that this one has aged very strangely. Wasnít awful, just wasnít really too overwhelmed by it either.

750ml bottle. Pours clear golden with a small off-white head that fades to spotty foam. The aroma is nice with Belgian yeast, sweet caramel apple, spice, and some sherry-like oxidation. Sweet caramel malt and pale malt base with Belgian yeast, apple, pear, fruitcake, spiciness. Complex and tasty. Really smooth mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation and medium-full body. Excellent if conventional Belgian golden ale.
