Ungstrup (36935) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Draft in Carlsbad. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of spicy hops, oranges, and peaches, as well as a touch of butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrus, wheat, hops, spices, and a weird note of something Ive a hard time to name, but is a little like butter.

DYCSoccer17 (3686) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Im guessing this is what was on tap at Downtown Browns in San Diego, even though they had a beer listed as "Lost Abbey Revelation". Has a lot of spicy, peppery notes present in the nose. Perhaps some orange peel, too. Not overly aromatic, though. Transparent golden body with virtually no head. What is there is quickly dissipating. Fruity, sweeter start with some mild estery banana notes in the middle. Maybe some lemon/orange in there, too. Virtually no hop flavor in the finish. Not bad, but not memorable, either.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2009
on tap at papago... slightly hazy golden colored pour with a short lived fizzy white head. methinks that the glass was still wet... fruity aroma has notes of bready yeast, candi, toffee without the sugar, warm spices (clove and cinnamon, perhaps coriander) and a bunch of florals. lots of fruity/banana-like yeast in the flavor... odd? maybe it is the alcohol? (damn, i wish someone would have told me these were 8.5% and stopped serving them in 22s!) anywho.. other flavors of flowers, pale malt, prickly dry hops, some clove and a dryness similar to b-king powder. the spice filled finish is fairly dry and leaves an aftertaste which is definitely bananas and their starchiness. it is a bit one dimensional yet tasty. the body is medium and it has a very drinkable mouth feel. there is a bit of chalkiness and the prickles (whether hoppy spice or carbonation) keep it fun. 7/3/7/3/15/3.5

On tap at Blind Lady. Pours a deep amber-gold with a big fluffy white head. Sharp aroma, of malt, hops, spice, and yeast. Taste is sweet and sharp, of malt, sugar, spice. Lingering sticky sweetness. Tasty.
