TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours a nice deeper copper hue, some fiery orange, with a frothy offwhite head, dies to a thicker ring, laces ok. Aromas are a touch of yeasty enticing spice, some dark fruit pit cherry, toffee and caramel, faint yeasty spice. Initial is a touch of yeastiness, mellow sweetness pervades with caramel, toffee, breads, a touch of red fruit, yeasty spice, with some light florals, faint bitterness towards the finish. But largely, a sweet brew with a big malty bite. Some light yeasty sweetness and spice

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2010
draft at the brewery, pours amber white head, nose is very fruity, bubblegum and red fruits. Flavors continue with big fruity profile bubblegum and juicy fruit with spicy yeast undertones. Lively carbonation and easy drinking. Good brew.

madvike (2582) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2010
On tap at the brewpub - Pours rosy amber with a small white head. Floral hop profile dominates the nose, with a bit of citrus and some nuttiness. Taste is real nutty malt with light spice and a decent grassy hop profile. Syrupy but smooth, with nice carbonation. Not my favorite Ale Asylum offering, but decent nonetheless.

Tap at brewery. Ruby with off-white head. Aroma laden with dark fruit and spicy belgian yeast. Flavors similar with sweet malty presence and some EtOH in the finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Not sure why i never rated this, but i had it today on tap at the Ale Asylum here in Madison: Poured a bright beautiful golden colour with a huge frothy white head. Immediate spices on the nose with yeasy esters overflowing. Taste is smooooooooth, but you can taste a little hotness in the finish. Soft spice again, but flowery notes overdubbing this brew.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Had on tap at the brewpub. It was a bit spicy and slightly overbearing for the style, but really not too bad.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2009
On tap at Ale Asylum brewpub. Dark amber with a long lasting creamy tan head that leaves some patches of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, spicy Belgian yeast, sugar and mild banana. Flavors of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, spice and malt. Body is smooth yet a touch grainy and it finishes up moderately dry with some spicy fruit mixed in.

Petrucci914 (902) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2009
On tap at the Asylum. Pours a hazy golden color with a small soapy head. Aroma is grainy, slight citrus, orange zest, banana, and spices. Taste is much the same. Very easy drinking but nothing special, as are most Belgians these days.
