Poured from a corked and caged 750 into a Unibroue tulip.

A: Pours a hazy golden honey orange with two fingers of billowy, off-white head. Strong retention and lace, vigorous carbonation.

S: Sweet nectar of bubblegum, malt and fruit. Something pleasantly tropical about the aroma.

T: Gentle sweet banana and bubblegum up front slowly dries and turns into a sharp but light, peppery flavor and then casually sweetens a bit on the finish. Languid. Alcohol totally hidden.

M: Light, smooth and billowy in the mouth as it is in the glass. Over the course of the glass, gets even smoother and creamier.

O: Very similar to their quad in the approach to the style-- low complexity, fairly intense flavors and each flavor bright and ringing true. I will certainly buy this again-- quite enjoyable indeed.

Pours out light yellow and sits an orange-amber in the glass with a nice fluffy white head on top. This just shimmers in the light; a very nice looking brew.

Smells very fruity. Pears, apples and plums all come to mind. Caramel also present along with a slight grassy tinge to it. Just nice and sweet, and very enticing.

Taste is right on, sweet fruits all the way. Grapes and apples with that caramely sweetness bring it all together. Nice bit of yeastiness in the mild bitter finish.

Smooth as silk, light carbonation. A great body; it just floats in the mouth. A delightful treat which is thoroughly enjoyed.

Poured into a new belgium tulip a monster creamy frothy head almost the size of mine. This bottle has a year or so of age on it. Color is a dark auburn that reminds me of the depth of the first urine after the worst of hangovers.

Holy drug mule, this beer smells earthy and peculiar as if it has sat in a deep dark dusty cellar to age and taken on some of the flavors. Not a bad thing as it mixes with that sugar and sweet biscuit caramel maltiness as it hits the olfaction.

Interesting... the taste is similar to the nose but deeper. Quite peculiar in its phenols and esters that dominate this beer. Mmmmm. Now this a beer. Highly recommended. One of my personal preferred examples of the style. B+, Blasphemy! I adore its musty peculiarity.
