Pour is a cloudy orange. Pepper clove aroma. Murky dirty brown pour, like apple cider. Nice peppery flavor; like sampling carrot cake. Solid beer for sure.

[Bottle, thanks Islay!] Pours really hazy brown and gold. Aroma was really quite nice--definitely reminiscent of spiced pumpkin bread. Somewhat sweet initially, then spice and the bitterness that often comes from a lot of it, and finally some wheat. Medium mouthfeel with a long finish. Pretty nice, although the taste wasn’t quite as good as the aroma.

OSLO and Guerde’s Memorial Weekend Tasting, 5/23/08. Courtesy of Islay. Very cloudy copper color with no head. Strong Belgian yeast aroma. Slight coriander and wheat. The flavor starts with a little cork and metal, but turns into a solid wheaty and yeasty brew. Slightly thin body. bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2008
Corked bottle. Orange blonde, cloudy. Flashes of orange and yeast in the slightly herbal aroma. Herbal, yeasty flavor with touches of pineapple and orange, Somewhat yeasty aftertaste. Softer than you might expect. Hop flashes in the finish. Almost medium bodied. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a small white head.Aroma and taste of malts, wheat and fruits. Dry hoppy finihs. Ungstrup (37574) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2008
Bottled at Ølfestival, Århus, 2008. An unclear orangey beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and spicy (from being dry hopped with Amarillo), but also with notes of wheat. The flavor is sweet wheaty with notes of Amarillo hops and cloves, leading to a dry bitter finish. I like the idea of fermenting a wheat bock really warm - and then dry hopping it with Amarillo - now that is a fusion of styles - keep up the good work.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Sampled at OSLO/Guerde’s Memorial Day tasting and shared by Islay. Pours a hazy caramel brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates clean. Aroma of Belgian yeast, banana ester, a touch of wintergreen and some fruity character. Taste is fruity, some caramel and yeast and a touch of white grape. Finish is semi-sweet, with a thin banana ester finish that quickly disappears.
