Bottle. Pours golden blonde with white head. Nose/taste of sea salt, lots of yeast, lemon bread, lemongrass and tropical fruits. Finishes yeasty and salty sweet lemon malt. Body a little watery, but tasty refreshing summertime beer.

ALLOVATE (2624) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2012
One of the beers I’ve had on many occasions and never got around to rating.
2010 vintage.
Just on cool and into a shallow chalice. Gentle pour raises a looming, fluffy white crown that leaves a thick lace. Body a deep orange gold and sparkling with fine, streaming carbonation. Bouquet of tropical fruit esters stabbing at Starburst™ fruit candy greets the nose first. An underlying waft of rose water, Belgian yeast, pear drops, dusty malt and honey joins the pleasantries adding depth. All candied fruit, sweet and tangy, upfront with a light touch of malt and yeast mid-palate before a bitter fruit finish. Mild warming alcohol fades it out with no real length shown. Good body, nice rounded mouthfeel. Becomes drabby as it warms, so a little chill in it might be the way to go. Overall a pleasing, fruity Belgian for the Summer months.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2012
4/30/12. 750mL bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour, borderline orange, with a nice creamy, thick, barely off-white head that laces in big rings. Yeasty, fruity, bubblegum, estery aroma with touches lf light sugar. Slightly sweet entry with plenty of yeast and a hint of sugars, but the mid and finish are quite dry. Lingers dry, slightly fruity, and yeasty. Not bad.

Bottle. Cloudy gold/brown pour. Small white head. There was a decent amount of sediment in the form of brown flakes. Floral and citrus hops. Lively, almost sharp palate.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange-gold color with quick diminshing white head. Aroma is fruity and cereal malts. Taste is complex; Cloves, banana and honey up front Moderate hop presence that balance out the sweetness nicely. Finish is a little bit astringent. Overall, I am impressed. Very drinkable. I’ve been selling this for 5 years and this is my first taste but for 12 bucks a bottle it may be awhile before I taste this one again.

750ml "Monsters" Bottle: Aroma of malt, Belgian yeast, fruit, and caramel. Poured amber/gold in color with a small to medium-sized, loose, white head that diminished but became creamy and dense over time. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, Belgian yeast, banana, grain, light caramel, light hops, and light spices. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, Belgian yeast, banana, spice, hop finish is dry. 7.2%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2012
From notes. First reviewed 10/3/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. ceramic Monsters bottle into a tulip. Out of a very unique ’Monsters’ flip top ceramic bottle, this pours a hazy golden tangerine color. Lots of resplendent carbonation refreshes a creamy white head. Initially a large cap rests on top, but a thinner film remains for the duration of the glass. Nice lace down the sides of the glass. The aroma is fairly sweet. White grape and green apple work with a honey sweet pale malt to provide this effect. The flavor is fairly sweet as well. A gentle honey sweetness and bready malt carries the flavor into the fruit. White grapes and green apples and then a vague spiciness. The end of the sip has a slightly medicinal flavor and remains sweet. The body of this beer is on the fuller side of medium. The carbonation is soft and creamy smooth. A grainy feel exists in each sip. Without a ton of complexity, this ends up being a fairly plain, fairly sweet Belgian Strong Pale Ale. The best thing about it is the bottle. But since that was the reason I picked it up in the first place, I don’t really have much to complain about.

Ceramic Monster bottle pours a hazy golden brown with a medium white fluffy head. Aroma is Belgian yeast. Taste has a musky dry flatness surround by Belgian spices, some lemon and floral. I’m not gonna lie, I bought this for the bottle.
