3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A steady pour into my teku glass produces a three finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a bright red/copper color that shows a brilliantly clear, almost metallic, copper-gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma is lightly herbal, has some soft lemon like notes to it, but has an underlying hay like and almost earthy malt character to it, as well as a touch of funky cheesy character.
Dry, somehow a bit tart tasting as well, the beer has a fullness to the body that I wasnít quite expecting, but is still quite light for a beer of this strength. The beer hides its alcohol quite well. Soft hay like grain, chewy cracker like malt notes, and there is just a touch of bitterness here, but really the balance is achieved by the tartness, that really adds another dimension to this beer. There is a touch of soft lemon like character in the finish and maybe a kiss of herbal notes.
This is completely different, it is surprisingly funky, could it possibly be slightly infected, or was all of this intended; the beer has certainly aged for quite some time in my fridge. This is actually quite a bit more interesting than I was expecting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a bottle from 2 years ago mind ou. Poured a semi hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroam was of yeast, orange peel, lemon, grain and grass. Flavor was midly tart cracked wheat and lemon, with a blend of belgina spice in the back. Interesting and much better than I was expecting.

£18 Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This pale golden beer pours with a very large white head of foam. It has very rich caramel and toffee flavours, spicy, zesty vanilla notes with a sweet, slight sugary finish.

Botlle. Golden with creamy head. Aroma of butter, yeast, dried fruits, cooked vegetables. Taste is dried fruits, spices and yeast. Not my cup of tea

Aroma of weissbier. Highly carbonated. Good taste, some citrus. Somewhat unrefreshing aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dated 2010. Drink by July í11... well, itís June í13.
$20 bottle that my sister brought to a BBQ. Poured this into a crystal wine-like glass.
Appearance: Slightly hazy at the top of the bottle, pretty hazy by the bottom. The color is a mostly yellow sort of look. Pretty nice head, though it doesnít last long. No lacing.
Smell: Kind of Belgian. Sour grapes, mostly.
Taste/feel: I thought the rating here would be higher. The alcohol is nonexistent (being aged 3 years has no doubt helped that) in the flavor, and the sweetness and sourness that the flavor provides is balanced pretty nicely by a subtle bitterness. Itís a lot of sour grape flavors, really. The carbonation was surprisingly high for being as old as it was. I thought this really drank pretty well.
This isnít a beer Iíd drink often, but I most definitely enjoyed it.

Bottle courtesy of Paul. This is a nice straight forward belgian that is not as good as some others out there.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear, fizzy, golden orange pour. Sweet malts, yeast, rotten fruit, light sourness, cheese, a bit funky, and stale bread. Infection? Not good, but I still drank it.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
2011 bottle. Pours an orange amber with a large foamy white head that settles to a thin film. Aroma has subtle cheese rind and faint tart funk along with some fruit like orange peel and white grapes. Taste is tart yeast and malt with funk/rotten fruit like old oranges and squishy white grapes and a lingering bitterness. Palate is fizzy and very drying. This beer goes from intriguing to undrinkable in about 90 seconds! Nasty

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/05/2011: Samuel Adams Infinium Ale 2010... Aroma:
Sugary butterscotch. Appearance: Bright golden color; extreme
amounts of visible carbonation; large, fluffy off-white head that
slowly collapses; thick lacing from top to bottom. Flavor: Very
difficult to describe... Light toffee/caramel malt; delicate
butterscotch; slight oak or dry woodiness (maybe cork?); floral and
spicy (almost peppery) notes; soft, warming alcohol in the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied; smooth and not too carbonated; actually, it
feels a bit thick - definitely much different than I expected it to be
(i.e. champagne-like). Overall: Enjoyable, good, memorable, but not
super fantastic; noteworthy offering nonetheless.
