3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled in early 2011, I was a bit apprehensive about this. Pours a fairly uninspiring golden shade with little to no head. At first the taste was incredibly disappointing, but I think it was slightly too cold because it really came alive half way in. The main thing that struck me was that there’s an unusual floral hoppiness here that is actually quite pleasant. Good roasted malt backbone, and it’s nice and light. It would have been nice to try this ’fresh’ but even as discontinued stock, it was a decent belgian style ale.

It pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has pale malt, under ripe peaches, floral hops and fruity Belgian yeast. It has a medium rough body with mild carbonation. The taste has drier malt, earthy/grapefruit hops, woodiness and dried fruits. Good. kryon (3797) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2017

Great grassy hop character with earthy Belgian yeast. Works very well with the bready and slightly honey malt. Very good. hayduke (5592) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 18, 2016
This 22 oz. bomber came to me via trade with Strykzone. Thanks. It poured a hazy gold with a thick foamy white head that left good lacing behind. Nose of citrus, banana, Belgian yeasts, and caramel malts. Medium body and sticky mouthfeel. Flavor is complex with pale malts, Belgian yeast, grass, banana, lemon and coriander. Medium-bodied, with a good carbonation snap, Long dry finish. Quite nice Belgian ale.

Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of caramel, yeast and fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, fruitiness and yeast with smooth dry lingering fruity finish. hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle (2010)... Pours murky and golden with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is dusty, fruity and spicy, featuring pineapple and a hint of clove. Medium to full-bodied with nearly expired carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of pineapple and soft winter spices. Fruity, dry finish. Not my thing at all but it’s better than it was when fresh.
