750 ml bottle shared at Natifest ’12. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized hite head. The aroma and flavor had sweet malts, yeast, citrus notes, perhaps ripe dark fruits as well, it shows its age with some oxidation. Overall, not too bad.

Clear amber with no head and no noticeable carbonation - looks like apple juice. Aroma is ginger, apple juice. Syrupy mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a fruity finish. Taste is quince, pear, apple juice, marmalade, sherry. Slightly oxidized, definitely past its peak.

Bottle share. Holy fuck. A blast of peppery fruit aroma. Pear, plum, peach, apple aroma and taste. Thick suspension particles. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Chunky orange pour. Fruit, yeast, stale bread, and herbs. Interesting. Isn’t bad for being so old. conway (2210) - - SEP 6, 2012
Uploading from Beer Buddy App. Notes from memory. Very interesting brew. Peppermint seemed to be the dominant flavor. Kinda made us wonder if something was wrong with the bottle. Worth trying if you're looking for a change of pace.

Poured from bottle at Natifest 12. Medium amber hue, aroma like distilled liquor, rich flavor that’s sweeet,smooth and sublime. Great. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Sample from a bottle at Natifest. Clear darker orange color. Little off-white head. Orange zesty taste. Sweet malts. Big body, light carbonation. Lite bite. Not my thing. Too sweet. Huhzubendah (3709) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle shared by mdfb79. Thanks Dan!
A: This brew appears sightly hazy and light orange in color. The head is rather small and leaves virtually no trace of its existence. I’ll take age into consideration.
S: The aroma is a huge blast of spruce and pine, but not in a hop or IPA kind of way. This beer smelled of pine cones and evergreen trees. Interesting...
T: The palate is bombarded with spruce, mint, herbs, and an odd, earthy flavor.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
D: I had trouble getting this one down. Too aggressive, unbalanced, an odd. It was fun to try, though.

750ml bottle - pours unfiltered caramel with tan head. Nose is basement aromas and brown sugar. Flavor adds alcohol, fruit, calvados and honey. Sweet. Quite amazing. b3shine (8940) - Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle to taster at Natifest. Looks okay; light-brown and hazy with thin white lacing. Smells solid; plum and tart. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.
