look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle date stamped Aug 19th 2010 if I've decoded the Julian date correctly. Stored in my basement for a low ABV cellaring experiment. I will be adding to this review in the future when I open further bottles later.

A. Lightly Hazy yellow-gold. For want of a more polite description, I am forced to concede that it is urine colored.
S. Fortunately it smells much nicer than pee. The smell reminds me of extra-gingery gingersnap cookies. Or of DFH's Pangaea smell. But that actually has ginger in it, while this brew, to my best knowledge, does not. There is a honeyed sweetness mixed with HEAVY belgian yeast esters. I daresay time in the basement may have amplified my yeast quite nicely. :)
T. She's gone dry! The sweetness in the smell is rather absent from the taste. Now there is mostly crispness, spice notes, yeast, and some mustiness mixed with tangy funk from belgian yeast. However, the dryness isn't quite...balanced with the spice. This beer is actually making me thirstier as I drink it, I forget what the official tasting terminology is for that, but it is the opposite of thirst-quenching. The Malts are sort of....flat and dead for reasons unknown.
M. The crispness of the ginger is intense on my tongue. I like it.

Mixed results here. I wonder how it will mutate further in the cellar as time goes on.
