Bottle at the Where the Wild Beers Are event graciously hosted by Mission Dolores. Pours a just hazy dirty amber gold with a thin white head. Sweet malt and a light bit of musk. Spicy malt, sweetness. Malt and toast on the finish. OK overall. shrubber85 (11411) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle. Horse blanket, lemon, and malt aroma. Hazy amber with small head. Sweet-musty lemon, malt and Brett flavor. Nice. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2003
Deep, hazy golden/orange color. Large, rocky white head. Mostly lasting with excellent lacework.
The nose holds notes of soap, citrus and vineous fruit.
The flavor is malty and lightly sweet up front, then balanced out nicely on the backside with lightly bitter and astringent citrus fruit peel flavors.
Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and very fizzy carbonation. Short, astringent and very dry finish. Citrusy and tart at the wee end.
Very refreshing Spring beer!
Thanks to jskendzel for this brew! daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2009

I hate round numbers, so this gets me off 1,400. Big thanks to fly for this. Pours turbid orangish with medium white head and much sticky lace. Aroma of malt, hopcit, slight vomit, barnyard, and sweaty female locker room. Tastes malty, with hopcit, earthy peaty esters, and some dusty yeast esters. Smooth finish. Very good balance and complexity. Nice style. cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Tasted from a bomber purchased in Denver, Colorado. Pours a hazy burnt orange body with a larger white head. Yeast, sour citrus fruits and a great Belgian ale aroma. Flavor is a nice lighter Belgian ale body that’s somewhat spicy, somewhat yeasty. Body is fairly malty with some sour citrus fruits in there. Delicious beer.

Bottle, shared with Dave. Pours a hazy light amber with a towering white bubbly head that retains beautifully. Aroma is sweet and slightly toasty, with soft sweet spices and light fruit. sweet flavours of hay, honey, light toast, mace, ginger, and candied apricots. Really tasty and interesting. phaleslu (10277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours a semi-cloudy orange-gold color with a small off-white head. Aroma of farmhouse funk, orange peel, grains, spices normally associated with a fall beer such as nutmeg, pepper, and apples. Flavor of farmhouse funk, orange and lemon citrus, apples, spices, and cereal. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy, funky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty cool beer.
