hotstuff (5160) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Corked and caged. 2006 bottle conditioned. White head that was frothy and slightly fizzy, Virtually no lacing, floaties, hazy, visible carbonation, and a straw yellow hue. The nose was hoppy, sugary, apricot, spicy, coriander, and some honey notes. The flavor was sweet, lightly bitter, hoppy, fruity, spicy, sugary, ABV well hidden, and finishes dry. Mouthfeel was smooth and dry. Medium body. Good for the style, very quaffable and I would definitely drink this one again if the opportunity arises. Worthy of a try IMO.

(Bottle) Pours hazy yellow to golden. Sweet yeasty aroma with tones of violet, banana, clove, flowers, dough and cinnamon buns. Sweet doughy flavour with some notes of sweet fruits and subtle spices. Quit full maltiness. Lingering sweet aftertaste with notes of yeast, spices and flowers. Medium bodied. thedm (6186) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent typically carbonated light yellow-orange colored body. The aroma was orange peel mild spice and malt hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow vinous aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special. Not much like a Tripel with a lot of yeast in the bottom making it very hazy at the last pour and it was missing the candy notes of most Tripels.

Hazy, golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, light fruit, light sweetness, light citrus and coriander and yeast. The flavour has the same notes and the citrus is mostly sweet types like tangerine and oranges. The body and personality could be stronger. 2393 weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Appears a hazy, light gold with a small white cap that slowly fades out. Streaky lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of pear, peach, pineapple, light melon, dough, and orange.
Taste is of the tropical mix mentioned in the aromas with a touch of vanilla and spice coming through with the yeast to make for some interesting flavors.
Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, sweet up front, yeasty with tropical flavors and pear hanging on to the semi-dry finish.
