Bottle into a goblet. Aroma is of fruit and malt. Pour is a hazy orange gold with a fine head. Taste is a nice warmth with a round fruit and malt. Finish is way over the top, fruitful malt that lasts. This is a great ale!!! Be only 50 miles away from the source helps.I

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A vigorous pour yields a minimal half-finger to finger of pure white head that fades FAST. Beer is ranges in colour from gold to straw moving up the glass, and is cloudy with yeast. Moderately carbonated, small bubbles stream up the glass and last long after the head had faded. Intense doughy, bready nose with earthy pepper and banana notes. Mouthfeel is moderate to thin with any "weight" being the result of strong malts counterbalanced by fizzing effervescence; the beer foamed up on my tongue with each sip. The finish was dry and slightly hot, and the only time I noticed the alcohol. Overall, a solid brew.

Notes from 2011 -- Bottle. Pours a nice cloudy golden, small head, no lace. Slightly sweet aroma with a hint of citrus in there. Strong malt flavor, with bitterness in the background. Pleasant opening less desirable finish. High alcohol is apparent at the end of the beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
25oz. bottle. Pours a golden-amber color with a vigorous white head that settles to a thin film and stays around with plenty of carbonation. Strong aroma of sourness and yeast. Medium bodied. Again, plenty of carbonation. Sourness, some sweetness in the taste...slightly dry finish, but I wouldnít say itís dry. Iíd say itís a pretty good Belgium-style ale.
