750 mL. Sounds like Old Growth and I had similar issues. The cork was nearly impossible to get out -- broke nad needed screwed out -- but once it came, there was almost no pop and the beer poured as though uncarbonated. Hazy brown pour with aromas of figs and various other dried fruits. There’s a sourness in the aroma I didn’t expect as well. Upon tasting it, it’s nearly compltely uncarbonated, but still tastes good. There was a good bit of lambo-sourness to it, that I thought might mean I had an infected bottle, what with the lack of carbonation and all, but it sounds like that’s just how this beer is. Very interesting, like a Belgian strong that is balanced with lambo sourness rather than hops. Interesting but not a personal favorite.
Hazy gold with small head of foam, some floaties. Has June 10th 2015 on the label.
Raisin soaked bread , other dark fruits and some oxidation in the smell.
Tastes like it smells, booze isn’t overly present. On the sweet side with the mouthfeel bordering on the syrupy side. A very nice drop! fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Honestly found this pretty forgettable. It was ok but not anything special. It was ok but not interesting.

750ml bottle pours an orange color without any head. Very low carbonation. Citrus and mild spice. Some orange peel bitterness. Mild sweetness. Would be better with more carbonation.

Bottle: pours cloudy darker orange with a thin white head, spicy and lightly alcoholic aroma, taste is not overly sweet, some dark fruit flavors, medium bodied with a pretty soft carbonation. Not bad. KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle. Seems to be DB today. Glowing orange, slightly effervescent, bubbly head. Spicy nose of honey, orange, some leather. Sweet hone and orange flavor, like a typical aged Belgian strong blonde. Nice prickly, fruity tartness in the background is the best part. Berries, oranges. Interesting.

Cloudy honey in the glass. Aroma of a cheese Danish. My friend says I’m crazy. Mild flavor of soft wheat, sweet citrus and some spice. Overall, very smooth and drinkable. Thanks to BarZigKin for sharing. Ron (4266) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle from AJ’s. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is orange peel, coriander and caramel malt. The flavor is orange, coriander, wheat, toffee and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. You can notice some of the alcohol in the taste at first. Later I didn’t mind that. Also did not mind having to wash/wax the car after some of this. jjgmd (2295) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Shared with Zack on his 22nd birthday, pours a burnt orange color with no head. Nose is yeasty and spicy, with some sweet fruit. Taste is sweet, fruity and spicy with coriander, ginger and apples. Finish is sugary and sweet as well, dry with some mild lingering. quaff score 6 / 10 zgaier (1968) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bomber. Pours a dark orange with a white head and aroma of fruits and spices. Taste is spicy as well, of fruits, alcohol, and yeast with a strong, warming finish. RussianDragon (877) - - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle is unknown vintage, possibly 2006. Pours a hazy orange with soapy white head that leaves sugary lacing. Aroma is citrus, sweet Belgian yeast and spices. Flavor is orange peel, anise, candi sugar and perfection. A note of butterscotch, inclining some at the tasting to think that it had turned. I thought it was world-class. From notes 2/15/10.
