nuplastikk (5960) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2011
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-brown. Foamy, soapy head. The aroma is a little funky, Id assume spoiled. Still drinkable, even enjoyable. Pungent dark fruits and amber malt are accentuated. Nice effervescent mouthfeel, but the leathery aftertaste is just not right. Tastes like an Amber all the way. A little devolved, assumably better fresh. Herbal hop balance awash a sugary malt and yeast body.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Foamed over when opened even though it was chilled down to 38F. Cloudy and dark yellow with a huge head. Aroma of "dark" spice and yeast. Taste of lots of spice mixed with the Belgian yeast taste and more spice. I cant detect the high alcohol in it and overall, its very good.

Travlr (22932) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle. Amber color, medium off white head. Aroma of apple skins. Taste is a bit on the sweet side, summer fruits and caramel. Not bad.

Szp arany szn, fehr habbal. Illata cukrosan desks, aszalt gymlcss. zben is az dessg a meghatroz, mazsola s ms aszalt gymlcsk, kis de citrusossggal megtoldva. Leginkbb egy komolyabb aszra, vagy ms desszert fehrborra emlkeztet. Helyettk akr ki is lehetne prblni sajtokhoz, gymlcss desszertekhez vagy csak gy, digestive italnak. Ha egy komolyabb desks srre vgyunk, ez nem fog csaldst okozni.

Smells rather sweet with some granny smith apples mixed with some sugar. Tastes like apple juice with a little hoppy finish! Not too bad.
