Pours a hazy orange, smells tropical and pruny. Tastes like pineapple and orange juice. Punchy.

Found a bomber of this at the back of the cellar, realized I had never rated it, and its a strong belgian ale so what the heck. Opened with a lot of carbonation and poured a hazy dark amber with a very generous off white head that settles down to a thin layer. Initial aroma is like a glass of cola that has been left in the fridge overnight, then as things are allowed to breath a bit of apricot and mango peel sneak through, a bit of alcohol and some candied Belgian sugar and yeast. Moderate body and high carbonation, slightly sweet but then becomes quite dry and more biter yet very balanced. Torn on this one - the cola aroma is odd but it reminds me of those cola 5 cent candies that you probably stole from 7/11 when you were in grade 5 (without the smell of fear)..and the rest of the beer is pretty good. Not sure if that is your thing but if so open a bottle now. HeadyDE (851) - Delaware, USA - JUN 18, 2013
Copper reddish orange like color..1/2 finger head..surprisingly active carbonation after many years..aroma of lemon..some citrus from grapefruit peel..honey sweetness..hybrid of a saison and Belgian triple with the triple being dominant..spices come up on palate candied ginger..cinnamon..ok slightly oily mouthfeel..slightly sour lingering on finish with a vinegary presence....probably a bit past its prime..ok.. chinchill (5072) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Served in 10 oz snifter at the 2013 Most Arrogant Bash.
Remarkable orange-amber color; crystal clear with a small but partially durable head. Very little lacing.
The aroma is not promising, with too much suggestion of vinegar. Otherwise, a wild mix of spices over a fruity base. The flavor also has a suggestion of vinegar but, thankfully, this is much more subdued.
M: Still lightly hot, the higher ABV is not well hidden. Low carbonation works well.
O: At 6 years, probably the oldest beer I’ve had, and likely past its prime. Still, interesting, fun and enjoyable, if flawed and slightly challenging. b3shine (8931) - Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bomber to taster (thanks brew3crew). This was a GUSHER! Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells tart and floral. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

This is a very good beer but it’s definitely over hyped. Like many of Stone’s beers. Ironicmedic (77) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Shared a bottle in 6/13. Pours golden in color, a little tart taste, almost wineish RobertDale (6560) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Sample from bottle at Hopfest 2013. Pours golden orange with a decent biege head. Aroma of fruit, spice, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, ginger, cloves,malt, and yeast. Very interesting. BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours golden orange with a tart sour aroma. Strong flavor of citrus and tart apple. Finishes smooth and sweet.
