Bottle. Clear golden with a big rocky head. Herbal and spicy aroma, hints of yeast and sweet vegetables. Spicy rye bread flavours together with fruit and yeast. A bit too sweet, but good complexity.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - JUL 13, 2008
enjoyed in the maxima form. light and bubbly it is quiet and a little boring. it brings fruity and spicy flavors maybe starfuit or other light fruit and a less traditional spice.

750ml bottle @Joe’s NYC Gathering courtesy of beastiefan2k–pours a foamy white head with yellow color. Aroma is yeast, grain, earthy hops. Taste is dry, yeast, grain, earthy hops-clove, some sweetness offsets the dry @ the finish. Nice.

mar (4939) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2008
bottle from beastiefan2k. murky yellow pour with a large white head. grassy with some esters and a slight citrus scent to top it off. very easy on the palate with a sweet almost tart flavor and a spicy aftertaste.

puzzl (3252) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle provided by Eugene. Very spicy aroma, cumin, yeast, black pepper. Assertive and very Belgian in flavor, with a full, strong yeasty body. Well defined. Maybe this just tastes better because it came after so much crap, though.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Thanks to my wife from bringing this back from Belgium! Pours a hazy yellow color with a large white rocky head. Turns into a nice coating with good lacing. Nose is apples, pear, cinnamon, and some funkyness, but it’s well balanced. Flavor is apple and pear along with sweet grains and some vanilla. Creamy and flavorful mouthfeel. Very nice beer.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Bottle: Pours a hazy light golden with a creamy white head. Pear skin aroma with some apple sauce and very mild cinnamon. Fluffy feel with a fruity flavor of fruit skins (pears and apples) with a subtle white pepper touch. Simple but solid and easy going.
