3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very cloudy grapefruit juice color with a creamy head that clings to the glass. The aroma is big and sweet and fruity. Lots of bananas and spice, and some buttery malt. The flavor changed as I got used to it and as it warmed. It started out sweet and rich, but the heat from the 9% ABV came on strong by half way through the glass. It never got old, though. I enjoyed it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- Pours a golden amber with red hues. 2 finger bone white head slowly sink into a thin collar. Speckled lacing.
S - Lemon citrus hops, bubblegum yeast, spices, wheat. Grassy hops.
T - Lemony tartness, spicy Belgian yeast, green pears, grassy wheat all on top of a solid candied pale malt. Moderate hops wraps around, takes hold, and compliments the flavors well.
M - Full bodied, creamy, moderate carbonation.
The citrus tartness cuts out the sweetness. Good creamy characters. Alcohol is hidden well. A solid drinker.
Serving type: on-tap

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle from Total WIne in Boca Raton. Snifter. Pours an extreme cloudy, orange brown with thin white head. Aoma of sweet fruits such as apricots, orange, pears. Also picking up bread and cereals. The taste was powered by the sweet fruits, malts, and somewhat balanced by the hops. My problem is it comes across too fruity and sweet. Mouth is smooth with yeast aftertaste. Mediocre at best.

Bomber to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes yeasty and a little doughy with notes of orange and spices. Good on the palate; it goes down easily for being 9%. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good, not great. Hazy orange with white head. Aroma is floral with peaches and apricot. The taste adds clove and some bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little weak. Overall, I like it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange beer with a thin white head that stays around the rim. Aromas of peaches, apricots and other light fruits. Flavor is the same light fruits and some decent carbonation but it doesn’t pack the punch I remember. Even with saying that, the first time I had this was when I was 21, so my palate has changed immensely since then, but this is still an exceptional brew. They call it a Belgian strong but it seems to more of just an American strong. Nothing wrong with that though, you know good stuff when you drink it.

22oz bottle shared by Brian. Unfitlered golden-orange body. Thin white head. Nice fresh yeasty, flowery esters. Very mellow and refined, no harsh alcohol tones. Light herbal tinged apricot, peach tones. Quite excellent, only lacks the champagne effervescence of a true Belgian. Great beer.

22 oz bottle. Pours a nice, hazy golden-brown with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of yeast, banana, cloves, apricot, peaches, pepper and spice. Similar aroma. Has a light, creamy body. Easy to drink for the alcohol content. Good, but not great.
