750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Big booming gold-to-orange pour into a Duvel tulip. Fairly impressive carbonation, and good sticky retention. The nose is potent yeast with some sour apples. I think this one may be a bit past its prime, as it’s certainly less complex than I recall, and few hints of the spices remain (I get more honey than ginger). Still, a good and relatively funky brew that goes down well.

Hazy golden pour with a finger thick white head. Pineapple with light fruit aroma. Canned pineapple in the flavor with some alcohol.

Light malty citrus aroma. Malty flavors and black pepper with some sweet caramel. Sweet citrus duration. Fruit juice qualities. Light pickle juice.

steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 26, 2008
nice and hazy golden orange body with a lasting, frothy white head; this is a smooth, calm, complex, and vinous ale; i preferred the flavor than the aroma; the subtle mix of spices and herbs provides an interesting, soft, and also welcome addition to taste--how it contrasts to typical flavor profiles of this day yet grasps smoothness and deliciousness is good.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Has a somewhat herbal nose, mixed with some floral notes and a bit of ripe fruit and honey. Nose really matches the flavor, rosewater, a bit of honey, and apple skins. Its quite different. I love the idea behind it, and I love recreations of historical styles, but I just dont think it all came together.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bought this bottle thinking it was a sour...so I guess I was kind of disappointed. Spicy and fruity aroma. Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin head. Some sweet apple flavors...almost a little too sweet. Different and a decent beer though, just dont know if I will try it again.

mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Something different... looks and tastes a bit like a cider to me. Nice crisp light golden pour with a frothy white head. Strong sugary apple notes and a bit of funk to the aroma as well. Taste is dry and somewhat crisp, with some sourness prevalent. If this one was billed as a sour, I wouldnt have minded it, but I didnt care much for the sour bite given what I expected. Good beer, not great. And like I said at the top - its something different.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Cloudy golden ale with small bubbly white head. Mild aroma of banana and a bit of funk. Also notes of red apples and a touch of apricot. Flavor is bright and bubbly initially. Crispy sweet apple flavors and a subdued banana note. Red apple peel flavor lingers after each sip. I prefered the sour edition I believe, but cant find my notes on it unfortunately. Another good showing for the up and coming Italians.

vyvvy (6055) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
This was a different and very enjoyable beer. Pours orange with a patchy white head. The aroma is very perfumy and powdery with ginger and many other spices - very smooth aroma. Medium / thin body thats fairly crisp with tight carbonation. The flavor starts very spiced, but it is gentle spices, unlike the normal sharp spices in most beers. The taste is much like the aroma with crispness and is very refreshing with citric lemon / orange. The finish is lightly powdery. Nice, unique and interesting.

watchnerd (22) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 12, 2008
This beer almost defies classification. Good head that deflates quickly, rich if murky color, and HUGE chunks of yeast upon pouring. Not much lacing. Some say it is best with food, but I think the opposite: drink this by itself to get the full experience. Not much hop presence, if any. Aromas of rose water, nutmeg, and feminine musk. A bit like sniffing panties while drinking beer.
