UPDATED: JUL 17, 2010 Ken’s botle. very good, and worthy of Charlevoix as world beaters, but not the lupulus. Big bubbly head on dark body. Yeasty aromas of Belgian yeast. Taste of licorish. It is sweet, it is lacey. There is some white pepper, cardomon. It is very drinkable.Lateral tasting at Volo v. Lupulus, and Hibernus is even a clearer winner.

Bottle at Paul’s saison tasting. Pours a hazy brown with a thin beige head. Spicy, yeast and musk, bits of caramel, floral. Medium bodied, sweet and full of caramel and old fruit, a hint of cocoa. Finishes with more lingering spice. Interesting. hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle... SMAACMSM O-Town Throwdown, Part Sept... Lightly hazed burnt orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki-colored head. Fantastic, everlasting retention. Phenolic, earthy nose. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Favors the sweet side of balance. Medium to heavy residual sugar; moderate hop and ethanol bitterness. Caramel or praline. Lengthy, sweet, spicy finish. Kudos to Beerlando for bringing this one to share! kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2009
