3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Hazy gold with creamy white head. Very lively. Chalky texture, has a real spicy, nutty medicinal flavor, slightly fruity. Pretty complex. Finishes dry and oily. I like this, but I thought it would be better.
I enjoyed this beer so much more the second time around. I re-rated from 3.2 to 3.9

Fairly complex flavor that manages to be rich and fruity as well as dry with a highly carbonated mouthfeel. Medium bodied and good but nothing much to stand out from the pack.

Iíll start off by saying: I donít know much about these beers.
one of the better beers iíve ever smelled, and poured a cloudy amber color. The one bad thing about this beer was the price.. of course i did get a huge 750ml bottle, but for 7.50 yikes.
I really like the taste of these beers.. real hard to explain.. taste dark, looks light, and kicks ur ass with the heavy alc content. I think the freakest part about this beer are the floating chunks of yeast in the bottem of the bottle. I would reccoment atleast trying this beer once.

A good, representative Belgium. The flavor is a little rough compared to a Duvel, and this took some getting used to. At about halfway into a 750ml bottle it got good as I got used to it. Good appearance with the nice meringue like head I like and lots of Belgian lace. I have had better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared with sckressler at The Flying Pig...
Appears a glowing golden amber with a pillowy fluff of white head on the top of the brew that wonít die.
Smell is of aged cork, pils malt, candi sugar, citrus, mild dough, and citrus.
Taste is of the same aromas with a mild pear and citrus flavor coming through. The odd cork smell and taste really are detracting from this.
Mouthfeel is of caramel sugar and some spices lingering about. It was ok.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle, corked. I had to use a pair of pliers just to get the cork out. Pours a somewhat cloudy honey color with a hugely over-carbonated head. Strong aroma of yeast and alcohol. Slight citrus in the nose as well. Starts out sweet tasting with lots of cirtus, yeasty in the middle. Then a noticable off-flavor, almost like modelling glue, kicked in. I see this beer is very highly rated, my bottle sure didnít meet these standards. I was disappointed.

Poured a hazy light amber color with a small off-white head. Notes of toffee, apples and yeast in the aroma. Aged malt in the flavor. Sweet and a little fruity. Lively feel.

750ml bottle: A great looking corn colored pour with a nice crusty head. A mild yeasty aroma with malt and hints of citrus. The flavor is yeast and orange and a bit buttery. An outstanding fullness to the body and a creamy mouthfeel. No sign of alcohol. Like most belgian brews it gets better as it warms. Smooth drinkability. Very good.
