2010 bomber bottle and served in a Duvel snifter: Deep golden near amber hue with a lasting frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of sour apple, cheesy brett, rose hips, earthy minerals, biscuity malt, and some tannic oak vapours (could that be the tea?). The taste has a nice acidic nature, moderately sour’d and slightly funky over a layer of spearmint gum and bready malts. Fruity and finishes very dry and tannic. Wow, I am shocked by how good this beer is and the lovely complexity. The mouth feel is a tad too dry on the finish for complete refreshment however. Overall I must say that the couple of years aging as indeed done this beer a world of good.
Bottle. Musty lemon malt/peel and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet lemon malt, yeast, and straw aroma. Decent body. Low carbonation. Okay but boring. Patrickctenchi (6560) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Orange-amber with a tall, but quick white head.
Yeast, apple-peel, hibiscus aroma.
Taste is almost salty, hibiscus, light fruit/berry....as it warms you get a little sweet tea leaf.
Light, very enjoyable...great flavour.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a big floral character from the hibiscus with mild fruit and some light funk. The flavor has more floral character, mild berry notes, light funk, light tart, yeast, some citrus, biscuity malts, interesting. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Rated based on notes taken on 18 Mar 2012 -- on first taste this isn’t very impressive. As you drink more the depth comes through. The floral of Hibiscus and tart of the tea, crazy good. Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 15, 2014
2011 bottle from my cellar. Holy gusher, Batman! Glad I opened this near my sink!! Very slightly reddish hue to an otherwise nice Amber color. Big white head for sure. Slightly funky and horsey nose. Nice taste, still some good herbal bitterness there. Nice Brett character, and very slightly sour in the finish. Nice and dry.

Light orange/gold pour with thin white head and lace. Aroma is Belgian yeast and light brown sugar. Flavor is a bito funk with a flat tartness followed by a papery bitter. Mediumm bodied with ok carbonation. ok beer by me Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Poured from a bomber into a Portsmouth brewing tulip glass.
The color is bright orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice thin lacing.
The smell is a bit floral with a touch of hop aroma. There is also a great Belgian yeast aroma mixed with some slight fruits in the nose. Peach and pear aroma comes out just slightly as a tease for things to come.
The taste has a nice Belgian flavor with some floral hops coming meet you at first. A fruit flavor swims about this beer as it turns to a wet peach or apple skin flavor with hop bitterness returning to reclaim its dominance at the forefront of this beer,
The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkability that gives off a smooth mouthfeel. italianjohn (3113) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2014
2011 vintage ... Hazy golden orange pour with a thin creamy off white head and striped sticky lacing..... Aroma of strawberries, herbal and floral hibiscus and sweet tart berries with light sourness .... Taste is bitter floral and herbal with some tea like qualities, fruity sweet and tart berries and a bitter hop bite on the back end and some light sourness ... Finish is dry and of tea and sweet malts. .... Solid and tasty Belgian ale cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2014
2011 bottle. Pour is hazed bright golden orange with a tight white head. Nose is strong brett, citrus and a good bit of lemon, dusty notes, hint of herbal tea behind. Taste also has a ton of brett, a little overpowering in the flavor, still extremely citrusy with a good bit of lemon. More dusty notes, moderately herbal, hints of cobb webb. Body is light, even so faintly syrupy in back, very assertively carbonated, and a fairly dry finish. gschrade (1084) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with off white head. Taste floral, citrus, sweet, belgian yeast. I loved this. I would definitely drink this again.
