Aroma is strong, fruity and somewhat sweet, but not cloying, with a hint of malt. It pours a lovely hazy golden with a fairly thick and fluffy white head. Flavor is strong and fruity, mainly apple and pear plus a hint of banana and a touch of citrus, as well as yeasty and malty hints. Texture is fairly smooth with a firm tingle.

1 liter flip top bottle acquired in trade with goldtwins (thanks!). Had a tag on it labeled bottle # 66 / 180, 6-15-05.

Opened to a loud pop. Poured a medium orange color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of spices (cloves and light peppers), bananas, yeast, and citrus. Tastes of citrus, lemons, spices, bananas, and some yeast.

Notes from and tasted on 12/22/06.

Thanks to hopdog for bringing this one to the table...
Appears a hazy orange with a tiny white head that quickly fades out. Little spots of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of Belgian yeast, peach, clove, banana, spiced wafers, tropical fruit salad, and apricots.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a citrusy, mildly spiced blend that fits together nicely.
Mouthfeel is light bodied, peachy, with apricot lasting into the dry, fruity finish.

This is an interesting beer. Some of it’s characteristics suggest that it’s a Flanders Red, but the color would suggest otherwise. It’s a pale amber with a white head. The aroma is green fruits not quite ready to be picked like apples, grapes and plums. There’s the faintest hint of vinegar in the aroma (which is fairly common in Oud Bruins from what I’ve seen). I’d like to see it a bit bolder, but the tartness makes for a refreshing beer without being bland.
