750ml bottle pours a lightly hazy, bright yellow with a cloudy, white head. Nose is minty, herbal, yeast, cloves. Flavor has tons of spice, cardamom, herbs, apples, candy, yeast. Full bodied, sweet finish. There is a really strong herbaceousness here. Not a whole lot of barrel.

Draft at DFH with Andrew. Pours a bright clear yellow body. Aroma is sweet Belgian CA dying and sugary malts. Mouthfeel is sticky with flavors of sweet oak, malts, candy.

Split a 750ml bottle. After having the Three Floyds version of this collaboration brew, Popskull, Ive had high hopes for this one for some time. I finally got to sit down and drink one and well, damn. What a disappointment. Perhaps father time hasnt been kind to it or the brew just wasnt stored at an optimal temperature, but meh - this was just underwhelming.

Now dont get me wrong, the beer was adaquate, it was drinkable and even perhaps a bit above average but it was nothing like the experience that I had with Popskull. Gone is the dark amber/clear brown color, as well as the malts, chocolate, caramel, touches of fruit, roast, and oak character. This was just... boring. Oh well.

Poured a light orange color, with a moderate white head. Aroma was sweet malts, residual sugars.

Bottle during Late Nights @ RBWG, Asheville. Deep amber pour with a small head. Very gunky, yeasty nose. Some lemon and apricot. Unidentified spices. Similar flavors. A bit of sludgy tired lemon and harvest fruits. Some caramel and wood. Full body, oily. Meh.

750mL bottle. Poured clear, bright golden with a tight-bubbled white head.. seemingly lower viscosity. The aroma picked up a whole bunch of cardamom, peppery alcohol, and oak over a base of medium-skinned fruits (some meat and some skin) plus a hint of green raisin.. warm impression.. intriguing stuff. The flavor found minimally sweet fruits and a little honey at the core.. tart fruit skins, black peppery and banana-ey yeast (reminded me of Westmalle yeast, but its been a while), and cardamom laced throughout.. oak dried out and spiced up the finish.. warmed up the belly. Medium-bodied and well carbonated on the palate.. tangy and engaging the whole way through.. tasty stuff.

750ml bottle thanks to inflatablehair. Pours out golden orange topped with a nice cream white head. Aroma was of spice cardamom? Maybe. Along with some pit fruit, honey, and citrus. Taste was more of the spice, some belg yeast, sweetness, a little hop, and some oak to finish it off.

Bottle. 24.5 oz. Courtesy of Annie, Pours slightly clear straw yellow with a glowing orange tint and a lacy, wispy white head covering the surface. Aroma of bubblegum, bananas, cinnamon, Belgian candied sugars, vanilla and oaky rum. The caramom is very evident in the flavor, as well as strongly sweet, peppery, and chamomile tea-like dry tastes in the finishes. Lingering sweetness and slight minty burn. This is a decently brewed, refreshing American take on the Belgian strong golden ale but I would much rather have the other half of this collab..PopSkull brewed at Three Floyds.

This poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of cardamom, light lager and some yeast. Flavor was very thick and boozy coors light with light spices added. Just bad stuff.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Tap: Clean golden hue with a lasting frothy head and very good lace. The aroma is quite spicy with heavy cardamom, white pepper, and ginger like vapours along with some biscuity and pils malts, slight Belgian clear candi sugar and Belgian yeast tones, hint of vanilla and tangerine liquors, charred oak as well. The taste follows suit with sugary and sweet malts fighting off an avalanche of spices and losing. Some candied orange peel and twangy Belgian saison like twang. The finish is slightly oaky and charred with some leathery earthy tones, alcohol while apparent is not overpowering. The mouth feel is ashy and grainy dry, honestly not very refreshing, moderate warming, tannic, and slick. Overall, an interesting effort that is simply to muddled and overspiced. I do like the Belgian character when it is free to show its face. I am glad to try on tap and therefore avoided buying any bottles.

Pours clear gold, small white head. Slightly vegetal scent, heavily spiced. Taste is softer.....cardamom...less harsh than aroma..some alcohol presents in backtaste. OK, just a bit over-gimmicked.
