3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very murky brown orange darkish pour, with very fine carbonation and a copious ivory head. Strong ester and fruit aroma profile, full of rich banana and pears, backed by a musky swirl of coriander, clove, and light tobacco aroma. Flavors are weak on the front end but blossom into this sweet candy continuation of the aromas. A rich, somewhat creamy mellow bready wheat and yeasts blended with masecerated cherries and raisins. Very sugary. Alcohol is well hidden in the beginning, but warms well on the way down. Good presence in the nose. Palate finishes oily and sugary, very coating and sweet cloying enveloping slick. Lots of good reminscents on the aftertaste, including apples, rum, and raisins.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours somewhat murky amber golden with a white head. The aroma brings sweet Belgian yeast, big apple juice notes. The flavor some spicy yeast notes, clearly aged, and a bit of spicy malts, almost liqueurish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Though a bit off, twas’ still a good brew. The pour was a brilliant orange with soft bubbles and a good ol’ Belgian head. It smelled like spiced orange bread. The taste was oxidated Belgian beer with a finish of old orange soda. Still pretty damn good, but because of the age and non-synthetic cork, perhaps a vacuum seal would do this longtime cellar-aged beer some good.

Bottle thanks to Keir. Cheers! Nose is light soda, sherry notes, melon, citrus, light yeast. Flavors are mainly the same with a more dark fruit and unripe melon flavor. Very soft carbonation. Not bad but definitely oxidized.

750 ml bottle shared at Natifest ’12. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized hite head. The aroma and flavor had sweet malts, yeast, citrus notes, perhaps ripe dark fruits as well, it shows its age with some oxidation. Overall, not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with no head and no noticeable carbonation - looks like apple juice. Aroma is ginger, apple juice. Syrupy mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a fruity finish. Taste is quince, pear, apple juice, marmalade, sherry. Slightly oxidized, definitely past its peak.

Bottle share. Holy fuck. A blast of peppery fruit aroma. Pear, plum, peach, apple aroma and taste. Thick suspension particles.

Bottle. Chunky orange pour. Fruit, yeast, stale bread, and herbs. Interesting. Isn’t bad for being so old.

Uploading from Beer Buddy App. Notes from memory. Very interesting brew. Peppermint seemed to be the dominant flavor. Kinda made us wonder if something was wrong with the bottle. Worth trying if you're looking for a change of pace.

Sample from a bottle at Natifest. Clear darker orange color. Little off-white head. Orange zesty taste. Sweet malts. Big body, light carbonation. Lite bite. Not my thing. Too sweet.
