Clear amber beer with a good size pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Mild minerals. Touch of brandyish alcohol. Mild orange and orange marmalade hops. Nice floral sweetness in the mid. Finishes dry with a little spicy alcohol. Nice beer, possibly past its best but working okay as a barleywine!

12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is very Belgian-esque, with Belgian yeast upfront, candied sugar, and fairly prominent honey. Flavour brings a mesh of honey, candied sugar and Belgian yeast upfront, with all these qualities fighting each other for the front position. There is a soft doughy malt in there as well and some alcohol notes, though quite well-hidden for 11+%. Not really much hint of the hops. A little amateurish tasting - the various flavours could be better integrated. All in all, still a decent American take on a Belgian strong, but flawed.

Bottle received via trade with FlandersNed. Pours clear mahogany with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare to no lacing. Aroma is banana, pear, and apple esters with cookie and toast malt, light earthy hops and slight peppery alcohol notes. Flavor is Belgian yeast spices, peppery alcohol, sweet malt, light hops and bitterness, candied fruits, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Big and sweet one here. Coudl use more hops. Hops are vegetal to start however then they mellow out into some mine pine and fruit.

Sammy (11651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Big orange citrus taste up front. Very good orange aroma. Cushioned mouthfeel. Yeast in the finish. Very good for style. Could also pass as a Belgian IPA. Dangerously drinkable at this alcohol level.Thanks for sharing Josh.

hopscotch (10923) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks! Clear, light copper ale with a small, fleeting, white head. The aroma is straight-up armpit muskiness and cat piss earthiness accompanied by only a hint of caramel. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. Surprisingly sweet, but theres a boatload of Simcoe hop flavor to go along with all the rich caramel and toffee malts. Finishes bittersweet - more sweet than bitter. World class brew provided by biggsbowler!

12 oz. bottle received as an extra (nice) from notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor has fruity esters, Belgian yeast, spices, caramel, a hint of resin, honey, light floral notes, interesting.
