COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fiery in color and intent, our Belgian Abbey is creamy and smooth with a thrust of spice in the aroma and a climactic finish.

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.

(Draught) Pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of orange peel, grains of parasite, coriander, banana, and pears. Flavor of spicy yeast, orange peel, coriander, raisins, and caramel malt.

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 (7132) - 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 (5269) - 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.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2007
On tap at the Ale Asylum Brew Pub. Poured a deeper amberish / brownish color with a small sized off white head. Had a light haze to it. Aromas of bananas, spices, raisins, plums and some yeast. Tastes of fruits, raisins, caramel, and spices.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2007
POurs hazy yello and shows some banana and spice on the nose. It becomes a fruit salad on the palate but yet keeps the balance with some slight bittereness that finds the finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Murky yellow-brown body, like a Celiac’s diarrhea, thin off-white head. Aroma with abundant esters (banana and clove) and toasty malt. The esters carry over that power to the body, adding light hints of pineapple in addition to banana and clove. Creamy body, rich. Little discernible alcohol. Not bad.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2007
Classic musty yeast aromas, ripe fruitiness. Banana, clove, orange, coriander flavors. Low carbonation, but there’s a decent bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. Served too cold.
