330 ml bottle poured into a tulip. Date on bottle 10/05/12.

A- Hazy bronze in color. Some white highlight. Towering cloud of white foam. Beautiful rings and lines of lacing. A really awesome looking beer.

S- Heavy caramel. Very mild earthy hop. Faint, dark fruit.

T- Light caramel flavor. Toasty malt. A bit like fruitcake. Faint earth and pine.

M- Very carbonated. Lost some beer on the pour, it was coming out so fast. Body is medium, smooth, slightly spicy. Finish is just a bit dry. Definitely doesn't drink like an 8%.

O- I think the hops have faded on this one, but it really had a lot of depth and character. Tastes more like a Belgian Pale. I'd like to try it again fresh.

Clear dark blond colour, a lot of carbonation rising up, big dense head, a lot of lacing.
In the nose there are some grains, some hops, some yeast, some fruit, orange peel, peach, hint of banana.
Tastes of grain, granny smith, grapes, slight hoppy finish.
Nice carbonation, dry finish.
Overall a nicely balanced beer. Fruitiness topped off with a hoppy finish. Not the best beer, but a solid one.
