Pours a golden yellow with a moderate white head. Citrus and spice in both the aroma and palate. A solid triple, but I expected a bit more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very fragrant, fresh and citrussy. Cloudy peach brew with a thick "shaving cream" head. The alcohol is noticeable, but so are an array of spice flavours as well. Very bubbly, very warming and nicely intoxicating.
Not earth-shattering, but a very nice brew to begin New Yearís Eve with.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy and golden/orangey, thich white head. Looks great even with the floaters. Aroma of citrus peel. Flavor is very sweet, more citrus peel, ginger, pine. Lots of carbonation, like a soda. This just didnít do a lot for me.

Poured out a great white head, nice yellow color. Iím used to darker ales, so maybe Iím a little biased - but I thought lacking in flavor and complexity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2006 Golden/yellow colour with a light white head that rises and falls quickly. Runs smoothly on the tongue, this beer gives the impression to be thick and liquorous. Sweet (honey?) and spices (pepper) aromas, but leaves a somehow strong alcohol taste.
Drink it along spareribs or eventually chicken tandori.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy golden yellow with large white head that falls quick and leaves a nice lace on the top and sides of the glass. Aroma has a mustiness to it honey fruity light black cherry. Syrupy palate very sweet. Alcoholic hints that are more noticable then most I have had but donít take away from the flavour and enjoyment of this beer.
