Bottle sampled. Pours a orangish gold color with a two finger white head. Aroma of fruit esters, citrusy hops, yeast, coriander, and spices. Flavor of caramel malts, citrus, yeast, and some dry fruits with a bitterness finish Arayaga2 (2218) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Faintly sweet, spicy aroma with a slight acetic twinge. Honey gold in color with white speckled head. Taste is same as aroma with funky brett type sourness to it. $3/12oz drfabulous (8485) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 30, 2007
I remember buying this at Holiday Market in Royal Oak...my thoughts were: decent Belgian, bit pricey. But I’d like to see the local distributors bring it into Missouri so I can re-rate...hint hint hint GRM (4144) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2007

On tap and served in a shaker (this bar didn’t appear to have much of a selection of glassware). This beer poured a clear golden/amber with a thin head of tight beige bubbles. Some spotty lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of orange peel, caramel, and bread. The flavor was similar but also included some lightly spicy yeast esthers as well as a bit of candi sugar. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with light carbonation. A nice beer from Goose Island.

Pours a Cloudy amber color with a creamy colored head. Nice fruity aroma with a hint of hop notes. Big fruity candied belgian yeast flavor with a slight malt backing. Nice flavor of spices as well and a bitter finish. Logethan (1) - USA - OCT 24, 2007 does not count
Beautifal amber color, nice thick frothy white head. Great flavor, slightly fruity, some good hoppiness, spicy. Great beer for early fall when it’s still warm out. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Light and fruity aroma, white grapes, starfruit, with hints of caramel and brown sugar. Pours very light amber. Light but finishes with a rich malt flavor, caramelly, brown sugar, fruity, light citrus, spicy. Very easy to drink, great beer! after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2007
750, capped. Thanks, Footy! Pours nearly clear medium amber with a thinnish, nearly white head. Modest nose of restrained fruit, maybe some tangy tangerine. Light body on the attack, subdued carb, and there’s that tangerine again. Body goes a bit watery before it’s gone. Odd little rush of pie spice there at the end. Kind of a perplexing beer, but certainly tasty, interesting, and different.
