Draft at Stone. Pours a slightly cloudy gold. Aromas of funky yeast, spice, banana, honey. Taste is more of the same, slightly boozy. luttonm (6504) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2012
12oz from tap at Brouwer’s in Seattle, leftover from Vertical Epic night. Rich orange, grayish head. Sweet orange, yeast, spice. Juicy body with some sweet herb spicing. Tasty for an American belgian style, quite enjoyable. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2012
On tap at Brouwer’s for 12/12/12. Light transparent IPA orange. Caramel and booze-soaked citrus. Some oak, and lemon candy. Quite juicy, and not in the least bit dry. Somewhat like a stale (but quite tasty) DIPA. I like it. HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle to Chimay glass. Cloudy dark gold pour. Looks great and a surprising amount of carbonation for the age. Bready aroma. Taste is amazing especially for the age. Very fragrant and flowery lime flavor dominates. So good. After a few sips the farmhouse and bittering hop qualities start to make their presence known. Very impressive how well this held up.. I’d buy a pint of it on tap tomorrow. AirForceHops (7339) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Draft @ Lord Hobo, on 12/15/12. We got to enjoy the left over Stone from the 12/12/12 event. Aroma of banana, clove, caramel and spice. Taste of yeast and the lime really makes it somewhat sour for me. Oxidation is all over this brew and it shows mineral water notes.The lime with age didn’t really work for me. Medium body and flat carbonation. For 8 years old not terrible.

Tap at CK for 12.12.12. VE night. Thanks to Travlr for the pour. Full haze lighter golden to straw pour. Good white foam dwindling. Spotty lacing. Nose is full on perfume, candied orange peel, lemon verbana, sage, rosemary, white pepper. Very perfumey. I like these types of beers though :-) Taste is spicy, herbal, big sage, garden freshness, rose hips. I’m down with this. Oily to near sticky palate doesn’t ruin it thankfully. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2012
(Draught) clear medium gold, no head. Nose of lime, spice, alcohol, aged hops. Taste is very herbal, spicy, hops held up surprisingly well, a bit of alcohol heat, interesting. Macegan75 (846) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Pours clear orange red to medium brown. Nose is citrus and mild oxidation notes. First sip is key lime flavors with malty aldehydes also present. Finish is mild apple cider like qualities. Not bad. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Draft at Hopleaf. Pours a deep gold with a sticky white head. The nose is light sweet lime, herbal overall. Light fruity esters and faint phenol. Clean. On tasting, moderate bitterness and a strong herbal hop flavor persists through the finish. Really drinkable. Light oxidation and sweetness. wchesser (2084) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Tap at Falling Rock. Glowing gold orange medium lace. Banana and light cloves. Sweet honey and nice round yeast flavors. Held up great.
