Gently sour nose with flowery citrus. Pours very cloudy with a very firm, fluffy head. Flavour starts lemonadey but quickly develops an almost lambic tartness. Balanced by some cinnamon and spice, finally giving way to a long bitter finish.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Gold with a large white head. Restrained sweet yeasty aroma. Taste is dominated by musty hoppiness, but there’s a little citrus as well. Not as much going on here as I had hoped.

LinusStick (2874) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2007
A nice Belgian strong. On tap at Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Aroma was so so. Mostly fruity with a bit of yeast. Pour was a light gold with a nice 2 finger white head. Taste was sweet and fruity without being over the top. Nice yeast in there with just a hint of alcohol, but nowhere near the 9% says. One of the better Belgian strongs.
