3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured with a slight head and a tiny bit a lace. Color isn’t copper, but a slightly hazy light to medium amber. Aroma is spicy, malty, a hint of hop, yeasty, caramel, nougat, toffee, marshmallows, and toast. Flavor is similar; add pretzels, heavier on the yeast bitterness, and a tang that I can’t identify. Great carbonation and good body. Finish is fairly long and bitter. Not bad. Very slightly boozy. Not a quaffing beer, but not really a sipper either.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a pretty clear golden with a fairly thick off-white head. Aroma is fruity and slightly malty and just a little bit sweet. Flavor is sharp, fruity, somewhat hoppy but not too bitter and slightly sweet. Texture is lively and tingly so it seems to dance on the tongue and down the pipes.

Bottle shared by acrdz(mj) on 7/3/08: Pours a murky copper bronze with a frothy, well-lacing white head. Aroma of earthy citrusy spice and some biscuity pale and caramel malts. Starts fairly full and well-carbonated with a mild bready sweetness and piny earthy notes with a drier, more bitter finish. A pretty decent Belgian ale.

Hazy golden orange with a short lived fluffy white head. Aroma of bread, Belgian yeast, grass, and citrus. Tastes of straw/hay, bread, Belgian yeast, slight orange, and perfume-like hops with a nice crispness and a mild dryness.

Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-amber color with a small tan head. The aroma was tart and bitter with moderate grapefruit. The flavor was tart and bitter grapefruit and pine with noted sugar, a yeasty undertone and a moderate sweettart candy element. The finish was long dry and tart. Medium body. Interesting.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2009 Cloudy orange with a big and lasting off-white head. Strong herbal hop aroma with fruity yeast notes. A touch of grapefruit and other brett qualities. Dry and hoppy flavour with a solid and lasting bitterness, and again a delicious touch of brett.
Non-brett, also 2009 on tap: More fruity and refreshing. Still a really awesome drinkable beer.

Big bottle. Cloudy orange-amber. LIght foam and lacing. Soft restrained fruit aroma. Flavour: pepper notes some Saison qualities, lemon and bursts of orange. Aftertaste leaves a cloud of soft pepper and cherry blossoms in your mouth. Like someone dressed up the XX and told it to behave.
