2005 Bottle thanks to Walt. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a very large white head that lasts. Aromas are of coriander, alcohol, musty, cork, medium malt, alcohol, tangerine skins. Flavors are of pear, apple sauce, bready, estery, tangerine. Still pretty boozy. Lively carbonation, dry. Elegant, delicious and in very good shape!

750mL bottle.. not sure what vintage, but its either 2005 or 2007. Poured clear, paler golden with a nice white head. The aroma picked up salty notes, lime, and coriander over nondescript pale and bready malts.. lime really stuck on the back of the nose.. interesting, but I couldnt quite see what they were shooting for. The flavor found an odd, tart blend of white vinous notes and lime upfront, with some pale malts backing.. still very salty.. fairly quick finish with salt, lime, and coriander bouncing back and sticking around for a while. Medium-bodied with a good balance through the palate.. this was very interesting, and Id like to try it again.

750ml bottle, 2005 vintage, pours a cloudy gold with one ring of white head. Nose of candy sugar, fusel alcohol, nail polish, rotten tropical fruit. Flavor is gross, overly sweet, rotting fruit. Drain pour.

750 mL bottle, 2005 vintage, courtesy of CaptainCougar. Pours a clear amber color with a thin head that quickly fades. Aroma of caramel malts, tart citrus, berries and a earthy note. The taste is sweet caramel malts and tart citrus. Medium bodied.

transparent gold, thin white head dissipates to nothing, still. Heavily corked, light honey and musty rind. Flavor is cork, honey, heavy paper oxidation, lightly sweet. Too watery and sweet.

Bottle shared by mentor, thanks man. Poured a clear golden color with a thin white head that diminished to a ring. Vegetal arome (boiled cabbage) and some pilsner malt, not much else present. Flavor is consistent with the aroma, with some vegetal flavors and a light moderate sweetness with a light citrus and a bit of yeastiness on the finish. Light on the palate with decent carbonation. Belgian strong ale?

2007. Leftover GABF bottling. Very clear golden yellow color with a small, thin head. Smells very pure and belgian, with exotic spicing of coriander and ginger, as well as some hints of sweet light fruits. Not perfect, it’s somewhat vegatal. Flavor has fairly nice balance with the spice and yeast character. Lots of coriander. It’s a fairly nice ale.
