Pours clearer amber with a white head. The aroma brings some refreshing, dare I say spritzy, lime sweetness still after 8 years! The flavor brings a still somewhat crisp, lightly sweet, golden ale with residual pleasant flavors of the lime and notes of the Belgian yeast. Wow - still holding up overall pretty well after 8 years. dalekliz (922) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle, shared at Brendan’s 12/12/12 party! Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a small white head that fades. Light aroma, of yeast, a hint of bandaid, malt, sugar. Taste is bright and sweet, of malt, yeast, sugar, wheat, a hint of lime, banana, caramel. Lingering lime and wheat. Not as nice as the others, but not bad.

12-12-12, tap. Dark yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is sweet alcohol strong ale, light lemon maybe, thin body and lightly fizzy. Golden ale, faint pepper, some faint banana, maybe rock candy. Nice.

Draft at Churchkey 12.12.12. Hazy peach pour. Nice notes of apricot, clementine, coriander and spice on the nose and tongue. Clean and nicely dry. Pretty tasty.

Bomber thanks to someone a bit ago. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is a stale cuppa tea, some grains and lemon. The flavor is also tea-like with some paper, light fruit and banana. Of course it is downhill, but I kind liked it. Sledutah (7524) - Utah, USA - AUG 4, 2012

Appearance: Clear golden with a big white head and some lacing
Aroma of caramel and herbal. Taste was caramel, herbal and mint. Past it’s prime, footbalmed.
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. This shows solid signs of oxidization. Fruity, cardboard, mint, peach. This finished very dry. Meh. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2012

Cloudy gold - amber beer. Small off white head. Light semi soft palate. Sweet tripel like malts with herbs and spice. Seamless blend of ginger, lemon, floral things and a little sherbet. Finishes semi soft and semi dry. A few oxidisation notes at the start but they burned off quickly. If you have one of these - I would drink now!
Bought this bottle, just to try and I wasnt dissapointed. Yes it has overtones of bananas and first taste I could definitely taste chilis on my palette. A thin white head when poured from bottle. Heavy carmel coloring that has definite appeal to it. I was quite surprised by the taste. I would use this as a opening beer on a tasting tray. I think it would surprise even the most discerning beer drinker.
