Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2011
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with an off-white head. The aroma holds sour candy, citrus, pale malts, light butter oak wood, vanilla, grain, pasta, gruel, honey, flowers, nectar, mint, lemon balm and light hops. Light vinous/white wine. This experiment doesnt do it form me too sterile and strange. The flavour is medium sweet, medium bitter and light tart citric. Tones of grapes, mild citrus, sour candy, light wood, pale malt, honey, nectar and other things from the aroma. The mouthfeel is clean, bit soft, tart and light sticky with a light to medium carbonation. Light fiery and white wine-ish finish. Medium bodied.

PacNWDad (107) - Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Sweet, fruity pour. Almost a guava type flavor in there. Not very carbonated, and not much head. Color is golden, fairly clear pour. Taste is fairly sweet, with the slightest bit of sourness in there. Toasted coconut on the finish? First time I have tasted that in a beer. Overall an excellent beer. I enjoyed it!

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Complex estery nose with a light acidity and lots of spice. Vague fruit sweetness. Clear gold with active carbonation to a thin head. Nice and dry with some sharp spiciness against a fairly thick and syrupy texture. Flavors are classic Belgian yeast characteristics: pepper, clove, banana, apple, and a little bit of dried fruit.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2011
500ml corked and caged bottle labeled as Grand Cru. Light orange, almost yellow pour with a decent amount of white head. Aromas of oak, pineapple, slight sweetness, and floral hops. More pineapple in the flavor with peach, raisin, agave, wood, and lots of boozy heat. Not near worth the price but worth trying.

StefanSD (2434) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2011
500 ml corked bottle from bevmo. Pours a translucent brass color with a big fluffy white head that has good retention. The aroma is strong with mixed fruits of papaya, apples, grapes, melons and a hit of booze. The flavor mirrors the nose, this is very fruity concoction, I get melons, papaya, green apples and a touch of vanilla. The palate is full and velvety smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Very tasty brew.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Corked bottle. Pours a decent but average cheddar orange with a semi-lively body and frothy white head. Aroma is peach marmalde, light nectarine butter, and a touch of papaya. Flavor is a lemony raisin orange jam with a nice boozy burn in the finish. Light sweet bread and plumb in there as well. Tingly mouthfeel. Very interesting; fruity but not cloying. Tasty.
