3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 22 fl. oz bottle dated October 2011, Batch One, #1320. About a case of these were aged at the brewery and it was not deliberate but the result was wonderful. The pour is a hazy copper-orange tone with a magnificent head. The aroma explodes with citrus zest, pale malts, earthy esters, coriander, and yeast. The body is medium and a little chewy. The taste has a bit of the Good Earth in it along with a near moderate bitterness on the backside.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color mostly clear with medium large but unintrusive white head. Aroma yeasty and maybe faint hops. Medium body, slight carbonation. Flavor is malty at first with slightly and pleasantly sour finish. Highly drinkable. Simple but well balanced. Liked it a lot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle aged at the brewery. Purchased on 31 Aug 2012. Bottled Oct 2011. Batch number 1. Color is a serious murky, off amber color. Good retention in the snifter. Nose is malty Belgian Yeast. Candy sweetness with a mild sourness in the finish. Prickly carbonation on the tongue. Lingers for a good duration after the sip. I donít know what this tasted like young, but this aging worked well for this brew. Very tasty.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Part of Blind BIF 6. Thanks to Brez07. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
Pours a light copper-caramel color with a thin white head. Good retention and some spotty lacing. The nose carries a faint bit of malt and light bread. Malt forward. Flavor has that same malt character but has a bit of fruitiness and a fairly-heavy yeastiness. Belgian character from the yeast, though itís a bit light. Medium body. Fairly-heavy carbonation. Decent, but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled Oct 2011 batch1
Pours a deep golden bordering on amber color with a huge fluffy white head that persists quite well. Smells malty and fruity with a hint of yeasty funk. Crisp aroma of pilsen malt intertwined with citric hops and a bit of tart. Taste is light, smooth and refreshing. Sweet bready malty taste with light pomme fruits a bit of candy sweetness and a grounding wheat-y yeasty taste. Sweet and tart apple like flavor lingers long after every sip. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Decent simple straightforward brew. Seems like it would make a great lawnmower beer.
