buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2006
Pours a dark amber with a nice lasting tan head. Nice sticky lacing. A malty banana aroma. A wonderful flavor of malts, spices, and fruits. Another wonderful Belgian beer.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - SEP 11, 2006
11.2 oz. bottle (11/06). Pours ruddy brown with a large tan frothy/foamy head. Strong aroma of old fruit and a bit of alcohol. Medium carbonation and very fuzzy, kind of strange/mildly unpleasant mouthfeel which covered the taste. What taste there was was excellent, a bit of fruit and spice which covered the alcohol very well. Overall a very good BSA with slightly too-mild taste and strange mouthfeel. Much better at the beginning, that fuzzy mouthfeel lingers.

DarkMagus (488) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Thick, bubbly head that settles into a dense layer of microscopic bubbles (and never disappears)--very cappuccino-like. Aroma of fresh fruits (primarily apples), some hints of blueberry, malts, yeast, citrus. Dense and rich flavors, overall somewhat acidic and citrusy, but balanced by a nice malty and yeasty breadiness, some candy-like sweetness and hints of some gentle spiciness. Not as intense and powerful as some others of this style. Soft and silky mouthfeel with a bit of prickliness on the tongue from the carbonation. Definitely a bit of a lighter body than other Trappists or beers of this style. Pretty solid nonetheless.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Thank you Secret Santa. Brown color with a thin fizzy head. Aroma is fruity and acidicly tart. Flavor is much the same, there is some malt sweetness but is offset by the tart finish. Rough around the edges, dosn’t have much balance.

Robe brune foncée surmontée d’une mousse beige en dentelle qui persiste. Arômes de caramel et de grains rôtis. Saveurs de caramel, de malt rôti, d’alcool, de levure, de cerise et de sucre candi.

dwyerpg (5087) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Smells like artificial banana but in a good way. Taste is smooth but with quite a bit of banana in the flavor as well. Certainly wouldn’t know it was 8%.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2006

patrick767 (3824) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2006
11.2 oz bottle - Pours dark brown with a moderate head. The pleasing aroma is of sugar, yeast, and dark fruits. Dark fruit and malts come to the fore in the flavor. It’s rather smooth with a touch of roast. The body is moderately full and the finish on the dry side. It’s just plain good.

Pours a dark brown with a SUBSTANTIAL off-white head. Mellow sweetness with aromas of dark fruits, hops and a hint of pear. Nice fullness. Dry finish. Hides alcohol well. Very good.
