Pours golden with an orange rich haziness and a light beige head. Smell is sweet and yeasty with light spice notes. Taste is sweet caramel, belgian yeast and body is full and creamy. Just too sweet and yeasty for me...

Moderately strong aroma of oranges, peaches, and raisins. Opaque orange with fine floaties, no head. The flavor is of peaches and raisins. Lasting lemon grass finish. Alcohol is not evident.

Pours a deep hazy golden-amber color, nose is like a bag of rotten potpouri, taste is super boozy, well too overcarbonated, grab bag of spices, anise, pepper, dark candy sugar, just not my taste at all.

The label says beer brewed with spices, and the flavor compliments the label. I can taste nothing but interesting spices. Has a very different flavor. This is not a beer I would go for again though. I think the weird spice is clove, but I can’t really pinpoint it.

Not impressed. The Appearance was nice with a thick head, leaving some good belgian lace on my glass. The Aroma was Spicy with a hint of citrus, not bad. But, that is where I stopped liking this beer. The flavor just wasn;t there for me. I was very disapointed.

Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a cloudy brown-orange with medium head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin film of head. Aroma is of a belgian ale or Unibroue 10 - orange/citrus like. Flavor is citrusy with a mildly bitter ending. Not a fan of the Belgian ales, i guess. Sampled at 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

It’s no Allagash White! It makes Josh ’Hoppy’. Prolly would be good with food, but just sampling in the bar it was a little heavy/strong for my liking. I don’t know maybe I got a bad one seeing how so many others enjoyed!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I drank this from the bottle into a chalice.
It darks dark clay red with a big creamy, long lasting light tan head and great lacing.
It smells sour like tea, and hints of hops and citrus.
Things were off to a good start and I had high hopes, then I drank it. Horrible.
There is light tea taste, overall its a very simple soft taste with lots of taste. There are hints of nutmeg and cinammon as well.
A very poor effort.

1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Beautiful beige head, lovely lace that lasts & lasts, gorgeous dark gold color. In a tulip glass, the peaches aroma is promisng. But the rest of the beer doesn’t live up to its nice start. Too much carbonation for its supposed style, rough alcohol that overwhelms any flavors. It’s just not complex - all alcohol and malt. It looks plausibly Belgian, but lacks all the real Belgian characteristics. The best you can say is that lace is very nice. I won’t repurchase - it’s only $2 less than a really beautiful real Belgian ale anyway.
