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. thewolf (12801) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009

[Bottle #1 in the Kolding Blindtasting, 20th June 2009]
Pours clear red-brown with a large, creamy, off-white head. Great duration. Arom a is super fruity, plums, chocolate, yeast, ginger, red apples. Great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly vinious, plums, spices, chocolate and raspeberries. Light warming. Damn, this is nice.
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.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2011 2007 bottle at the 2010 March Metro Detroit tasting. Poured a cloudy brown with a slight red hue. Aroma had notes of sweet fruit and caramel with undertones of grains and yeast. Flavor was nice with a combination of yeast, alcohol and some sweet notes with a bit of sweet fruits coming out in the finish.

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! jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2008
2008-02-26. Bottle, 2007 Vintage. Brown bdoy with a nice foamy tan head. Sweet fruity aroma, solid malt foundation. Light spice reminds me a bit of a boerwoer sausage for some reason. Not the meat, but the spice. Brief note of orange citrus? Richly complex, sweet malty flavour, rich fruit tones. Very light spice (8+) Smooth medium palate. I haven’t adequately delved into its nuances but its pretty nice! Bottle shared by HogTownHarry

Bottle sample @ RBSG ’10. Pours a clear brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma was full of sweeter malts, caramel, plums, herbal notes and spices. The flavor was very complex with caramel malts, spices, ginger, herbal notes, yeast and dark ripe fruits all competing for palate time. Some alcohol, but it is mainly warming. Very good stuff.
