poured into a Stone snifter
A- pours a pale golden color with some sediment floating around, small foamy white head reduces quickly eventually leaving nothing behind
S- spicy yeast aromas up front with some fruity berry and citrus notes, a hint of earthy must mixes with banana, clove, and ginger
T- spicy yeast with a kick of ginger up front, citrusy notes from the orange, lemon and grapefruit peel, banana and clove, with a hint of caramelized sugar on a sweet finish
M- medium body with spritzy moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish
O- very drinkable but the notable characteristics seemed to have faded

Next in the series. Bottle says to age this one to at least 12/12/12. Well, I think I've got that covered.
A: A fairly odd shade of yellowish brown. Neither light nor dark. Neither yellow nor brown. I must say, it's not an overly appealing shade. Forms a small fizzy head that fizzes away quickly, leaving just a thin ring around the edge. No lacing.
S: Aroma is nearly non-existent. Swirling the glass, I am barely able to pick up anything beyond a fruity sweetness and some yeasty phenols.
T: Taste is much more pronounced. It is moderately sweet, with notes of ginger ale, candy sugar, herbs, fennel, citrus zest and some light spices. Bright floral notes. A bit alcoholic on the back end.
M: On the lighter side of medium in body. Low-medium carbonation levels. Spicy-prickly on the finish. Mild bitterness.
O: An okay beer. Not really sure it benefited from six years of aging.

Six year old Seven poured with a light caramel color and a fizzy head of lively bubbles.
The scent had a tinge of alcohol with a flowery perfume of lavender.
The flavors were sour with a flower, licorice, potpourri and carbonated water taste. The finish was genuinely tea like with a real herbal leaf flavor.
The feel was very carbonated but it had a good crispness.
Torn on this one as it had a natural perfumey flower and herbal tone but had little malt character to really round it out.
