3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 Hazy orange colour. Spicy, phenolic aroma of medecine, sweat, cologne...like a classic saison meeting Orval. The palate is crisp, slightly toasty but largey perfumey, piney and phenolic. Straightforward, but I like it this way. Refreshing.
Old Notes (2000): Orangey, lively aroma and palate. Soft, rounded malt notes, peppery hints, and a touch of acidity dancing on the tongue. Very stylish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Apex, pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of doughy malt - not much on the nose really. Flavour of dry bread, wheat and maybe some yeast - similarly bland flavour profile. Pointless beer to me, yet dry and refreshing. Decent enough I suppose.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A hint of sour. Also yeasty orange? Orange amber color. Not so cloudy, as the sediment settled. Orangy citrus, malt, hop flavors merge. Tiny bubbles foam to a chewy state. Mellow spicy hop finish. But there’s a faint hint of something tending towards creosote. Or some flavor I just can’t otherwise label. Not bad, just different. Bottle conditioned ale triumphs again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy deep orange with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and had good lacing. Good complex citrus and cereal aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Same good complex bitter sweet flavor with a moderate finish. Good brew.
