This style originated in Belgium to compete with the pilsners from Czechoslovakia, Germany, and Poland. It is a fruity ale with very strong carbonation, with complex, spicy flavors like cloves.

Old rating. Yellow Amber colored. Belgian yeast, spice, cereal grain, out of balance and a little medicinal. Pass.

Hmm this one smelled really good but went downhill from there. On draft, poured an average slightly hazy yellow. Had a fresh yeasty and tropical fruit aroma, classic fruity Belgian ale characteristics. Taste was clove, sweet candy yeast, some wheat, perhaps some caramel malt, however there was also a prominent boozy finish; the exceptionally high ABV for the style was very obvious. Mouthfeel went from exceedingly carbonated at first to very flat, with a boozy tang throughout. Other than the unpleasant alcohol notes, was an enjoyable sweet Belgian style ale, maybe I'll give this a second chance another day.

12 oz bottle. (Food Lion) Boone, NC.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Belgian style yeast, malt, spices and some fruitiness in the aroma. The flavour is yeast, mild fruity hops, malt, spices and some alcohol. Passable.

Tasted pretty close to the nose with caramel, kiwi, Belgian spices, apple, green grapes, cloves, banana, slight peppery spices, cinnamon and still that wintry mix. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish. A pretty good Belgian beer overall.

sample, too much booze in this one, lots of yeast flavors and a ton of malts, no real finesse or drinkablity
