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.

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.

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 (910) - 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.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2008
A decent Belgian ale...light reddish in color with sweet malt aroma. Nice and drinkable, but I preferred the Diablo.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a hazy dark copper amber with a nicely-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh, lightly biscuity Belgian malt with a touch of yeast and light citrus. Body starts fairly full with some nice lightly sweet caramel malt and an orange citrus balance toward a bready, semi-dry finish. A nice Belgian ale.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2007
On draught at the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear, coppery amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind an off-white ring a no lacing. Aroma of dark caramel malt, flowery hops with some mild spices, white pepper and a touch of clove. Taste is medium bodied, hardly any carbonation with a caramel flavor in the aftertaste and then a mild bitterness. A pretty decent milt bitter Belgian ale.
