Pours a orange amber with a medium whitish head. Nose is perfumy and laden with fruit and spice. There seems to be a robust floralness to it as well. The tongue is met with fruit, sugar, some lighter spice and a hint of flowers. Pleasantly smooth finish. Another good beer from Abbaye Des Rocs.

Murky golden colour with a good and lasting head. Fruity aroma especially of orange and also caramel and honey. Quite enjoyed this beer especially as the alcohol is not upfront.

Beer 34 Belgium trip. Hazy orange, strong head. Strong aroma of oranges, guava, tropical fruits. Sweet flavor of orange marmalade, very sweet. Pretty good really, and I wasn't expecting to like this based on my former experiences with this brewer.

Deep ruby/copper color with a thick, frothy cream head. Some caramel, fruit, and spice fills the aroma. Spciy taste, some fruit and a hint...just a hint of coffee in thie flavor. Very complex but very well balanced.

Amazing yeasty, fruity, spicy, caramel aroma. Deep caramel color with thin off-white head. A very rich, full flavored beer with perfect carbonation. Very intense flavor with a big palate. Great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice amber color,medium sized white head that lasted for a decent time and left a slight lace behind.Fruity spicy aroma with a nice presence of spice,lightly malty and sweet.The taste was much the same as the aroma with a little bit of toffe and even sweeter then i was expecting.The carbonation must add to this brews flavor,it's a bit more then i care for but it does seem to add that little bit of something that really brings this brew together.As this brew warms i notice the flavors as well as the aroma becoming much more pronounced and the alcohol doesn't seem to have even left the gate yet.It does have a belated warming feeling as it goes down.This is one hell of a brew and i have to thank BG for stocking this brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer rocks!
Hazy, honey-colored ale with a large, creamy/rocky, off-white head. Great retention and thick, solid lacework.
The nose is super fruity with notes of stewed and spiced apricot, peach, pear and apple.
The flavor is of Juicy Fruit Gum with breadsy and grassy notes.
Well-balanced, so the fruity sweetness isn't cloying.
Full-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Fruity, lightly astringent finish.
World class stuff!
