UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 Lightly hazed amber-gold body with a long-lasting rocky white head. Toasted sweet bread / cookie-ish malt with fruity-citric / apricot hops.. Medium body, sweet+ with relatively balanced bitterness. Has a fruity core of orange and apricot jelly with a touch of muddled browned banana yeast. Higher sugar content than Taras Boulba and Crushable, but seems well-matched by bitterness, mouth feel and carbonation/acidity effect on relative sweetness.
2012 Bottle. Ar: Lots of nougat and sherry; slight rosy perfume and alcohol. Ap: Deep gold and hazy; medium-large off-white head with excellent retention, leaving a thick cap of foam. T: Very oxidized; cardboard and sherry; black tea and sweetness, almost cloying; some orange and bruised apple; low bitterness, no accompanying hop flavor. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: This beer looks great in the glass, but the aroma, flavor, and palate are just a mess; hard to tell what this beer might have been when fresh, but it hasn't held up well.

June 19, 2014 - at Volo - bottle pour. Hazy bubbly orange-gold with a pillowy lasting white head. Love that aroma - lemon peel, intense floral low-level bitterness - sharp, crisp, a bit of funk and alcohol; lemongrass? Taste is terrific - light; lemon, tart tree fruit, buiding floral bitterness, restrained alcohol. Solid body, very lively mouthfeel - the fruity malt drops off in the beginning of the finish, the floral bitterness and tart lemon zest take it home. Fun stuff!

White foamy full lasting head. Cloudy deep golden honey colour. Aroma is moderately malty with fruity (apple, pear) and light hoppy notes. Flavor is hoppy with light fruity (green apple) tones, ending in an hoppy finish. Light bodied. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 12, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- (best by 1/14/15) - Aroma of grass and malt. Cloudy dirty light amber color, frothy white head that stays, hanging lace strands. Taste is somewhat bitter malt that adds medium carbonation on the swallow, then turns progressively sweeter as it moves to a lightly bittered finish. Since it’s over a year past its date, I suspect it is much better than what I have here: a good Belgian that has become a little bitter. siofilippo (6) - ITALY - MAY 15, 2016 does not count
