A: The beer is somewhat hazy light amber orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high dense off white head that gradually died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of chunky yeast are present in the nose (similar to the large clumps of yeast you taste near the bottom of a glass) along with some hints of fruity yeast.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of chunky yeast along with hints of sweet toasted malts and fruity yeast. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied (and faintly chewy from the yeast) on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer doesn't have as much earthiness compared to other beers in the style but is a really nice beer if you like smelling and tasting yeast. No traces of alcohol are present in the taste.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. Label on the base reads "bottled with love 3 1913".
A: Hazy, caramel-colored body with 1.5 fingers of off-white head. Ok retention. Light lacing.
S: Sweet malt with a bit of spice, honey, brown sugar. Light noble hops. Some fruit - I detect apple, tangerine/orange. Faintly floral with some touches of earthy funk.
T: Lightly sweet, fruity malt up front with development of a moderate hop bitterness. Semi-dry finish. No significant alcohol presence. Slight tang on the aftertaste.
M: Moderate carbonation with a nice moderately-full body. Nice creaminess on top. Fills nicely.
O: Pretty well balanced all around with some nice flavors/scents happening. A bit malty, a bit fruity, a bit hoppy. Solid take on the style, although the hopping feels distinctly American. Better than I remember - I feel some age has improved this one. Good stuff.
