[2008 bottle @ RBESG 2009] Spicy herbs and coriander and sugar in the nose. Cloudy orange brown under a rocky, lasting top. Flavour: white grape, coriander, orange, brown sugar. Sweet and with a weak, herbal bitterness. Sweet finish but clean, low carbonation, medium body.

Pinball (12032) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2009
cloudy orange, large thick offwhite head. flowery hoppy, piny hoppy, spicy as a belgian blonde, a little sweet frutis too, faint bitterness from alc. slightly bready. very nice aroma, surprisingly hoppy for something belgian inspired. flavor is yellow fruits, spices, flowery hops, ends warming bitter. also faint dark fruits. reminds me of belgian blonde, only quite a lot more hops. the hops are more flowery than bitter.

PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2009
Poured from a chilled 355ml bottle into a snifter. Had a bit of a nightmare with it, took about ten minutes to pry the top off without it exploding. To say its lively is a gross understatement. Appearance: Orangey amber colour, with a big super foamy head. Carbonic to the point of the bubbles actually trying to leap out of the glass. Aroma: The aromas were surprisingly weak. I got a bit of spiciness, and a yeasty acidity. Medicinal, a bit like antiseptic. Taste: Again the taste was weak, it was as if the beer had been watered down. There was a slight fruity sweetness, with a clear acidic yeastiness. Mouthfeel: It had a medium feel that was trying to be heavy, and a hyperactive liveliness. Drinkability: This to me is unfortunately a sub-par imitation of a strong Belgian ale. It has the right tastes and aromas but they are far too weak and never seem to quite break through enough.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2009
2008 Bottle:10/10/08 date: Didnt chill and it gushed. Light amber. Large,fizzy head. Settles to a uniform,clingy,ring. Aroma of spicy/fruit,yeast,sweet malt giving off a brown sugar aroma,and muted earthy hops because of the age. Alcohol is also noticeable in the aroma. Medium,lightly fizzy texture. Very soft. Upfront light candied,fruit(pineapple,orange),with the spicy yeast,before the finish. The sweet malt and yeast begin to balance after opening up a bit and biscuit like malt flavors become a little more evident. Finish is sweet still holding a noticeable earthy/herbal hop presence making it somewhat dry. Lingering sweet/yeasty flavors in the mouth,which overpower the finish. Not too bad.

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 31, 2009
2008 bottle Poured into an Orval chalice in honor of the beautiful countess. Nice big fluffy white head that quickly turns into a medium sized head over top a hazy golden colored beer. Aroma is a little sweet spicy and fruity. Flavor is considerably less sweet and more complex than the aroma. Flavors start off with a little sweetness and some fruity flavors that predominantly feature pear. Slightly spicy and a little hoppy with a bit of alcohol. The hoppiness is slightly herbal and seems a little nicer than when this is totally fresh, I dont exactly know why.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma is very lemony, with some yeasty cloves. Flavor is cloves, biscuit, and a perfumy floral hop flavor. Honey finish. Quite a nice beer.
