For what it claims to be, it sure does not stand up, but was very pleasent nonetheless. Very, very mild on the tongue.

hopdog (12027) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2007
12oz bottle. Bottled on 072705. Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with a larged sized off white head. The first thing that came to my mind when I smelled it was apple pie. Along with those aromas came light spices, lemons and light yeast. I was into the apple pie aroma. Tastes of all around fruitiness, trace of spices and yeast. Body was fizzy and too carbonated for my tastes.

Sampled on cask at NotLA. This special version was dry hopped with Simcoe hops. Very yeasty nose, citrus, spice, red apples, and pepper. Lots of red apple in the flavor, sour spice, yeast and more fruit. The simcoe hops and yeast did it well, smooth, subtle, and tasty.

2005 bottle from Moejuck - thanks, Joe! Sadly it was a gusher, but 2/3 survived. And what a lovely beer. Soft and floral aroma, but with some tasty sours and a nice peppery finish to it. Definitely some strong resemblance to Jolly Pumpkins La Roja. Man, I wish I could get this regularly.

2006 Bottle thanks to the generousity of Whaleman. This one gushed, no problem caught it in time to pure into the glass. Clear golden body with good size head and decent carbonation. Aroma was peppery, yeast. Reminded me of Fantomam Dark White. Taste had a slight peppery/spice to it. Good Belgian ale.

zootfinster (220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Pours a nice golden amber with medium head. yeasty fruity flavor. Pretty heavy in carbonation for the style but satisfying. One of the better Goose Island brews.

Lowe1983 (1555) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Pours a golden-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of banana, spices, lemon, and yeast. Flavor has some grassy tones with huge banana, lemon and yeast flavors. A pretty good belgian style ale.

2006 Bottle - Gusher Alert! This thing went off like a firecracker on the 4th of July. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a a large foamy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of green apple, banana, some sourness, spicy, Belgian yeast, barnyard and a general overall fruitiness. Aroma reminded me of some of the Jolly Pumpkin beers (gushing did too). Flavor of Belgian yeast, spices, overly carbonated. Carbonation actually kind of covers up some of the flavors that are in here. As this one aired out I got more citrus, tropical fruits, very light sourness with some hop bitterness and on the dry side.
