This 4/8/2011 5.2% bottle was a gift from a dog walking friend. The label recommended bottle conditioning for up to five years so I figured I'd better get cracking.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a DFH tulip, there was still an abundant thick white head over a clear dark yellow body. Smell contained some of the winey hints present in some Belgian pale ales and maybe a hint of the flowery hop smells but I'm afraid most of them have faded. Taste was slightly more intense but I have a feeling the label advice was spot on. Mouthfeel was just fine per the style. Sorry I didn't drink this earlier but free craft beer FTW!

A: This is copper to amber in color with a 1 finger rapidly dissipating head.
S: estery aromas with some floral in the nose, after the esters, malt.
T: There is a little malt and fruit at the start but it finishes with a spicy, herbal, floral under taste
F: Medium to medium light body, medium high carbonation.
O: It is very refreshing. The herbal spiciness goes well with the carbonation and the hops. It kind of adds onto the malt and hop flavors – you can tell the floral is there but it is not overwhelming.
