Sparkling clear, light amber with 2.5 inch off-white head with medium size bubbles and moderate lacing. The initial nose suggests a restrained Belgian ale with hints of clove and orange peel. The yeast sediment clings to the bottom of the bottle. I will swirl the next pour to capture some of the yeast if possible. The body is medium light with a very pleasant lingering. Vigorous swirling produced a very modest haze but increased the head and added some yeast notes. How much yeast are in these bottles? The Belgian ale characteristics are still restrained. The labels suggest that the ale will develop in the bottle for up to five years. Perhaps I am sipping this too soon? It was bottled in March of this year.

From the Bottle at the Smithfield Hotel, Manchester 18/07/2009 Bready floral aroma. Golden coloured and a little rich on the palate with a little dryness in a malty and bitter lasting finish.

22oz - The sourness took me by surprise from the nose on in a most pleasant way. Clear gold liquid with nice lacing throughout. The hops never really showed up, and if it did it was lost in the sourness.

Bottle, 12oz. It pours a dark orange body, unclear, and is topped by a finger-thick beige head soon turning into a thin layer of bubbles. Very fruity, sugary nose with hints of banana. A whiff of alcohol and spices steps forward when swirling the beer. Some yeasty notes too. Dry, warming and full-bodied, with a pleasant bitterness in the end. White sugar, frehs fruits, dried apricots, a little spiced note and a pleasant bitterness in the flavor. Its a fine beer, but Im not really sure about the score. It feels like theres something unclean aroma and flavor, but Im not sure if its part of the intended profile. I think Ill focus on other beers when buying. 100228

This was a very pleasing Belgian ale. The nose was sorta funky and the taste was buttery smooth. As with all these Goose Island ales, its a little steep for a 4-pack, but Im not at ratebeerprices.com, so it doesnt matter. Id drink this again. Delicious.

Pours amber with a decent, fading head. Aroma-sweet malt. Berries, fruit, bready. Taste- mild sweet malt, yeasty. Overall sweet and not bad, but not great. Aroma better than the taste.
