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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Draught sample at the brewery, mid-October 2006. Opaque, viscous-looking orange-amber color with a largish creamy head that dies quickly but leaves a bit of chunky lace....sweet, yeasty-spicy aroma, lots of coriander and ginger, a bit of orangepeeel and honey.....light caramel throughout the tasting is the backdrop for dry, heavy cobwebby yeast, somewhat chalky at times; honey’d sweetness fades almost instantly....full body, strong but gently carbonation....finishes with an odd coconut-grapefruit syrupy quality. Very interesting, and engaging without quite being great.

Smell of cloves, medium bodied, average carbonation. Can taste cloves, alcohol, and a hint of bread. Fantastic!

Ughsmash (7121) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2006
On tap at the Ale Asylum. Poured a hazy, darker, murky brown with a light ring of off-white head. Almost sickeningly-sweet aroma with pears, some darker fruits, and peppery spices. Flavor also found bunches of sweet fruits and peppery spices that rose in prominence as this warmed up.. rather complex, but again too sweet for me. Flowed somewhat well on the palate but was hard to drink a lot of.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Draught at the brewery tasting room. Hazy ornage-brown with thin white head that didn’t leave any lace. Spicy, fruity aroma with subdued banana and clove accents. Flavor was similar with a warm splash of alcohol.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. The body was light copper colored with a creamy off white head on top. The aroma was lots of banana with some cinnamon. As it warmed I thought it smelled more of bubblegum. The taste was bananas and cinnamon spice. There was a little grassy funk in the finish. This was very drinkable.

I like belgians, and this is no exception. Has a taste of bananna - either that or i’ve just had too many. Tasty and beautiful.

Extra points for the name alone! A fair lookig little lassy with a reddish glow. A fruity basket with enough vinous notes for interest. Finishes dry enough to sweep out the fruit leaving a note of brandy. Fine. On my second try was not as good though.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Hazy golden color with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of pale malt, mild herbal and floral hops, white pepper and touches of citrus along with an attic dryness. Flavor of pale malt and mild spices, including pepper and light clove. Light and airy. Linger is of pale malt and a mild herbal essence. A fine abbey ale.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Sample @ Brewery. Like the Diablo this beer is about a spice ale for aroma and flavor. Some fermantaion in aroma. This one seemed little smoother on the palate. Amber body with off white head.
