3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a dark amber/orange with a small fizzy white head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of light grain malts, a mild citrus hop and a sweet belgian yeast with notes of banana, apricot, corriander, maple syrup and had a mild alcohol tinge. It tasted moderatley sweet with hints of banana, citrus and corriander from the begining and stayed pretty much throughout with the finish having just a little sourness to it. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and syrupy and creamy in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall all it was a good tasting brew that did a great job of concealing the high ABV, although it was just a little sweet for my taste.

This is a confusing beer- not good, but not bad. First and last time I'll try it. Do yourself a favor and try something else.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel color with a medium sized foamy orange-beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy honey and chamomile. The flavor was sweet sugar, tangy malts, honey and golden fruits. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice crisp light copper and bronze coloured body with a good thick three centimetre tall tan head that leaves a relatively ugly lace. Aroma of candy, yeast, alcohol, apricots, apples, pears and a hint of flowers - nice and strong. Full-bodied; Strong malty flavour up front with quite quite a bit of candy and caster sugar tastes, some subdued yeast elements, hits of honey, bananas, figs and flowers, all finishing with a good body and robust dryness. Aftertaste shows a good blend of dry oak and floral notes coupled with a lot of residual sweetness from the caster sugar. Overall, a surprisingly nice beer with a smooth profile (expected from the age) and a robust finish. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from The Corner Store (Bait & Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 30-December-2013 for US$3,59 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 06-March-2015.
