Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The look is clear, golden in color, and has a white head. The smell is sweet, malts, fruits, spices, and yeast. The taste is sweet, malts, fruits, spices, and yeast. DuffMan (10271) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
Bottle, shared @ the Purple Pig. Light golden, hazy, with a solid frothy white head that holds beautifully. Very interesting aroma that required some careful consideration to pin down. Both fruity and vegetal at the same time, like starfruit, or guava and celery, with creamy undertones. Flavours lean toward vegetal and lightly herbal, with straw-like malts. Creamy mouthfeel. Very fresh and lively. Verne (263) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2014
The top blow off with a bang. Its a good thing it was well settle in the refrigerate or it would have gushed. I am new to this style but so far this is my favorite madvike (3250) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle - Pours hazy golden with a huge white head. Nose is fruity and yeasty with dry pale malt. Taste is yeast, doughy, with pear and tropical fruit. Skunky on the finish. Fluffy body with lots of carbonation. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Hazy amber with a creamy head. Dusty and dry nose that is slightly grassy and citrusy. Tastes like flowers. Not that I have eaten flowers. I think. Sweet and malty finish with a floral note. Thanks Matt.

The pour reveals a murky orange color with a medium white head. Strong aroma of allspice, nutmeg and yeast, interesting. The flavor has a balanced and very pleasant blend of allspice, nutmeg, fruits and yeast. The body has a light to medium thickness with a creamy texture and lively carvonation. This obscure beer was a nice surprise, very interesting. robforbes (2237) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2007
purchased at puget sound wine cellar in port orchard washington.
this brew needs to be swirled prior to pour to mix the sediment. as you drink the appearance and flavor changes.
first pour (which i did swirl and swirled prior to each pour) pours a semi-cloudy golden with a medium size thick and foamy white head, decent lacing. last pour is deep auburn-orange that is very cloudy, same head only a bit darker.
smell is yeasty, fruit (pear and apple), some malt, touch of spice, musty.
taste starts tangy, sour, pear, slight metallic.
half way thought the bottle it becomes creamy, slightly bitter, more of an apple than a pear, malts, less metal.
the end of the bottle is more of a thick amber ale, some grapefruit, more bitter and no metal.
this beer would be great for three people with different tastes to have together, starts more as an abt or traditional ale, ends more of an amber ale or IPA. very strange brew in a good way. damienv10 (108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Opaque orange with a thick, rich, white foamy head. Fresh orange, mint, lavender, cinnamon, ginger, and sweet apple make up the subtle but complex nose. Lively carbonation makes the beer crisp without stinging you. This is light for a biere de garde. If it was a little less hoppy I would swear it’s a saison. Dry malt flavors with a hint of fruit, a bit of sourness, some spice, and a small punch of hops make up the flavor profile. More intense nose than palate. This isn’t a bad beer it’s just not as sturdy as most beers of it’s style. ABUSEDGOAT (2731) - California, USA - APR 17, 2008
Hazy orange, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is yeast, spice, somewhat fruity, grass, funk. Medium bodied, fairly dry. Fairly interesting, quite enjoyable. hotstuff (5141) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2008
Bottle with a best consumed before 10/07/09 date. Large semi-frothy white head that mostly diminished, good lacing, semi-transparent, semi-hazy, slow rising carbonation, and a yellow golden hue. The aroma was yeasty, sweet, some wheat, spicy, and fruity. The flavor was sweet, fruity, mildly spicy, yeasty, and a little funky tasting. The mouthfeel was watery and thin Light bodied beer. Quaffable, easy to drink, just an okay beer for me as I could not get into the taste of it so it left me not wanting this one again.
