Reviewed from notes from 2008 visit to cafe or the source as they say. Going to add all beers I have tasted and have good notes on. and I hope this web/cloud saves them better than I have on paper so far.
A: I order 6 of these @ 1 time, for the gang as the first beer of many. Golden cloudy beer with a nice head of about 1.5 inches.
the lacing is excellent. Perfect.
S: I get cereal and malt, Flowery herb like hops notes, reminds me of Orval without the brett. Also Saison like but more hoppy.
Its very complex and I am getting more but lacks words to describe it, its sweet and good. Perfect.
T: ahh well I drank a good half of it in 1 pass. Heaven. Of course @ the source you get crazy emotion at times. anyway.
malty rich flavors, pale ale yeast mixed with fruit like esters.
Hops and malt perfect balance, so much to taste here, so little time to want to linger on it, I will get another is the thought.
M: Medium carbonation, and medium body. Dry finish. Perfect.
O: perfect beer what is there to say.

Appearance: Golden orange, medium pillowing head with very good lacing.
Smell: Citrus fruits, dates, raisins, and slight hop.
Taste: Floral hops, citrus fruits, dates, raisins, and some yeast.
Mouthfeel: Light and smooth.
Perfect balance. This is delicious and light feeling. It reminds me of a Mikkeller that was refined further.
