750ml bottle. The pour yields a dark, stratified body that ranges from reddish-orange to a muddled, sandy-brown. A small head of beige, bubbly foam leaves behind a wet, soapy wash that mostly rejoins the body below. The nose displays a wide range of components, from brown candy, candied fig and dark bread in the malt base, to notes of spicy Belgian yeast, ginger, wildflowers, and apricots. Flavors are similar, showing the dark, bready malt and clean grain in the background, with a spice profile that included ginger, orange peel, pepper, and loads of flowers. Though nothing really offends, things seem a bit overly busy and lacking in focus. The palate is medium-plus in stature, pretty dry, and balanced in terms of carbonation. Peppery hops and wildflowers show on the fairly clean finish. Good brew. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 14, 2010

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head recedes to skim surface. Sour tropical fruit aromas. Sharp sour pencil shavings upfront turning quickly to rotting tropical vegetation. Lasting rotten sour vegetable finish. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2010

aroma: caramel malt, straw, stale hops.
taste: yeasty/bready T1; ^floral, fruity esters, acidity T2; caramelized sugar, stale hops, alchl warmth T3.
the floral complexity makes for interesting pairings. i had this with some smoked ribs and it was perfect. the fruitiness and floral character really latched onto to sweetness of the sauce and complimented the pork, while the high carbonation cut through the heaviness.
Pours reddish amber and lightly hazy with a thin fully receding off-white head. Notes of fragrant esters, perfume, and flowers. Full bodied with lively carbonation.

750mL courtesy of Travlr via SeaBass. Pours a dirty/hazy orange with a thin beige head that has big bubbles/little retention/no lace. Sweet, musty, stale fruit aroma. Taste is boozy, spicy, dry, a little weird. Not much wild character. Travlr (26431) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2010
