I received this bottle as an extra in a trade. As others have reported, it was a huge gusher and most of it spilled over my kitchen countertop, I turned a 750 ml bottle into a 12 oz serving.

Interesting beer if you like citrusy belgian-style beers.

Not interested enough to give a full review.

Thanks to DrAwkward82 for sharing this one at jmgrub's birthday tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, grapefruit, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a citrus-forward flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that has some interesting aromas and flavors.

Like others have reported, this beer was a gusher. I've never had one to this extent, losing close to half the bottle. I'm just glad I opened it next to the sink.

In a snifter the beer was a hazy orange color. There was a huge white head, but with little staying power.

A spicy aroma, some citrus. Sweet.

A lot more in the taste. Grapefruit, orange, and tangerine. Coriander and pepper. Sweet biscuit.

A little too sweet and spicy for me.

Poured from 750 mL bottle into a TBBC pint glass.

Or at least the remnants of the bottle. Wish I had read reviews first. This one was an immediate gusher, at least 8 inches of frothy funky volcano as soon as opened. Lost at least 2/3 of the bottle onto the counter & sink.

It looks like a nasty, opaque beer soup. Smells of funk, barnyard, horse blanket, with a touch of some citrus. Taste follows, but the infected funk overwhelms any other flavors that may or may not be in there.

I'm always torn about reviewing an obviously infected beer. But after reading the high number of reviews here that reflect bottles with issues, I doubt that I will be buying another.

750ml shared by Marco.

A: Bright tangerine orange with a good white head.

S: Juicy citrus and coriander dominate in the nose. Some light lemon and vanilla.

T: The coriander is pretty strong, along with some cakey pale malt and lemony esters. Some slight dryness from the wood. Very citrusy, with a very slight acidity to it.

M. Light-bodied with very light carbonation.

O: Somewhat interesting, but a little too heavy on the spices for me.

Lateral tasting from bottles from Lueken Liquours. Grapefruit, a little sweet and subtle spicy. The real show was the greatest gusher in thousands of beer bttles opened.Lighter colour than the cedar
