3rd LCRBM. Golden color. Ginger aroma. Lemon aroma and flavor. Sweet flavor in which pineapple esters are present. Disappointing. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of orange/grapefruit peel, coriander, peach, apricot, ginger, and clove. Flavor of orange peel, yeast, coriander, light ginger, cardamom, grass, and other herbs. Age has probably done this one some good. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2012

On tap at Rattle N Hum during their Stone event. Pours a hazed orange with a thin white head. Coriander and spices on the nose. Sweet and spicy, medicinal but faint. Tangy coriander, sweet, chewy yeast, a bit medicinal. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"nice and dry, which ends up being quite the pleasant mouthfeel. sampled 1/09 and it aged quite well...and was exceptional aged in red wine barrels for eight months!"

[thank you, Myrup]
Pours lightly hazy golden with an impressive, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is soft, nots of liqourice and peppermint, oranges, light alcohol and sweet biscuity malts. A touch of pineapple in the end. Super nice, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly spicy, some coriander, ginger and vanilla. Sweet and lightly grainy, doughy malts.Some apples. Wow, this is really nice and soooooo greatly balanced.
Spicey yeast aroma is great. Cloudy yellow with substantial lace. Orange, pineapple, and malty, ginger, cloves, and much sweet finish.Smooth drinking. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2007
