Bottle. It pours cloudy golden with a creamy white head. The aroma is quite vinous, oak, caramel, acid, fresh fruit and citric hops. The flavour is sweet caramel, acid, brett, sweet fruit and oranges. Very good! bhensonb (15617) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, yeast and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sour& sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with an well above average brew.

Bouteille 75cl partagée avec Tomaz, lot# 370.
Orange avec un col fin et beige.
Arôme boisé de chêne, blé et orge tout en ayant ce subtile nez de Calvados qui se mélange à un medley de fruits tropicaux. Douce et peu rappeler un peu le miel.
En bouche, on reconnaît de suite ce fût de Calva laissant en bouche une impression de pomme et un palais qui est réchauffant. Levure belge allant vers le style d’abbaye avec une fine note de fleur de houblon. J’apprécie ce côté fruité venant du Calvados et qui donne une chouette dimension en bouche où je retrouve ananas, citron, orange. Le tout reste sec en bouche. Holy (837) - GERMANY - MAR 21, 2011
@ACBF 2011. Strong notes of calvados throughout the sip. Moderate alcohol burn end game. Nice.
corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Draft at Farmers’ Cabinet.
Pours a hazy pale golden orange color with golden yellowish-apricot hues and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Chunks of lace left behind.
Sweet boozy aroma with a strong barrel character. Hints of earthy oak, vanilla and brandy along with some funky yeast, mustard seed and citrus fruit.
Medium bodied with a nice combination of earthy oak, zesty spice and boozy heat. Lots of spice especially coriander and pepper up front countered by earthy oak, vanill and prominent boozy sweet brandy. Althought the spirit flavor is prominent, it’s not too hot making it pretty quaffable. Sweet citrus notes with more of a pronounced mustard character than the base version. Spicy finish with lemon and orange peel toward the end of the swallow with a nice warm finish.

Thin, off-white, sloppy head of varying sized bubbles. Minimal carbonation. Nice complex aroma. A slight bit of funkyness in there along with lots of vinuous white grape aromas, some herbs, a hint of bret and some soft grainy malts. Color is a slightly hazy dark copper. Flavor has a little zip to it from the funky tartness that accompanies the spicyness from the mustard seeds. The tartness keeps the mouth salivating and begging for more while at the same time drying out the palate. More white grape with only a minor alcohol presence. Some belgian yeast and a tad of straw round out the late palate portion. A pretty good brew that will not be a hit with everybody. emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Thanks mom. Pours a slightly cloudy straw amber with one finger of off-white head. Nose is lightly acidic with a large brett presence, pineapple and fresh cut citrus. Flavor is really nice, very dry and citrusy. Zesty with fresh pineapple and heavy brett influence. Lightly tannic and cider, definitely an apple component to this. Uber interesting.
