Golden brown topped by a big white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of bread dough, fruity yeast esters and some floral notes. Light malty sweetness, fruity yeast, a hint of bubblegum. A bit of peppery spice and hop bitterness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great label. Foggy, light orange-tan brew. Aroma is a melange of spices, stewed fruits, a little cabbage, malt, slight phenol, sweat. Sturdy bittering, pretty dry, funky, woody, boozy, a bit wild. Medium body, a loooong alcohop bitter finish. Thanks to PorterPounder - hope he doesn’t get a smartphone.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 On tap; served by the brewer.
Pours dark golden with a very fine bone colored head that has great durability and leaves plenty of lacing.
Fruity with funk, yeast, baked bread and clove on the nose. Complex and Belgian-style but otherwise not really appealing.
Taste partly parallels the nose, but with a good bit of tartness that, unfortunately IMO, is accompanied by a mild bitterness. Too much funky/yeasty flavor. Oddly, the aftertaste is rather nice however.
M: excellent feel, with a near medium body and very good medium carbonation.
O: Too much wild yeast and funk for my taste, but otherwise appealing.

Bottle from EricTeusink! Pours a beautiful hazy gold with a huge white head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, tart, and tangy. Taste is nutty, fruity, lightly tart, no booze burn. Bread, crackers, finishes crisp. Damn good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear golden amber color, head on the thin side but looks pretty decent.Smell is mostly bright sweet yeast, lots of banana, some nuts, maybe apple or pear, mild spice and floral notes.Lots of sweet flowers, roses maybe, good amount of spice, not much of the yeasty banana I got from the nose. I like this! Really tastes like it has flowers..Mouthfeel is nice, good carbonation that complements the spicy kick well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours blonde-amber with a fine but decent white head. Nose is spices, fruit, and a touch of booze. Flavor brings out hops much stronger, with malt and booze on the backside, and strong carbonation. Finish is bland. Overall, not bad, but needs a little work.
