3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap at Mugs Ale House Brooklyn, NY. Pours a nice deep gold opaque color with a ligering lacing on top. This was really bold with the Belgian Chouffe yeast to me with nice notes of spices, slight citrus and the sweetness of fruits with the candied sugar. The discription mentions Spanish Thyme but I’m not sure if I taste that distinctly here. Tasted better with each sip as it starts to get less cold. Finishes dry and very nice slight hoppy bitterness at the end.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Trocken-fruchtiger Geruch mit Aprikosennote. Wässriger Antrunk, fruchtige Hintergrundaromen sind erkennbar. Das Ende erscheint hopfig und recht süß, der Mittelteil ist mit eine ausgeprägten Wässrigkeit nicht sehr interessant.
Danke an Urbain für dieses Bier.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(drought at Eli Cannon’s in Middletown CT)
simple and with a §unpleasantness to the "wild-belgian-yeastiness",
still not bad but not leaving desire for another.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tyler’s Taproom in Carrboro. Pours a cloudy orange with a decent tan, creamy head that leaves delicate and gratuitous lacework. Subdued aroma of candied light fruits, spices, spicy alcohol, Belgian yeast, wheat, dough. Taste is doughy with strawberry shortcake, apricot, peach and a background of nutmeg and cinnamon. Medium to watery body. Very clean, neutral finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark amber ale with a thin white head. A bizarre cloves aroma, with cinnamon notes, very uncharacteristic of a Belgian ale. In mouth, a light candy sugar with bananas, oily mouthfeel, berries, and a light alcohol warmth. On tap at Willimantic Brewing Company and Main Street Cafe, Inbièrenationale IV, May 2007.

Tap at Bar Great Harry. Fantastic beer. Huge, beautiful head. Perfectly dry, doughy aroma, lots of yeast, wheat and spice. Deeply complex and invitin4g. Flavor has a lovely hop, wheaty crunchiness and a light tart. Lively body, with nice caramel notes. Super slick Belgian. Superb.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at BGH. Cloudy gold with a de ent head. Spicy Belgian yeast and wet hay aroma. Flavor is still hoppy with a sweet corn flavor which is good but a tinny flavor which isn’t. A bit medicinal so I’m thinking time wasn’t so kind to this once delicious brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ BTAH, ’06 vintage. Pours cloudy amber, off-white head that shows some nice lacing. Nose is mellow - spicy, a bit yeasty, hint of candy sweetness. Flavor is also mellow - spicy yeast, some sweetness that combines with the yeast gives it almost a very light, sweet fresh baked bread quality, clean finish, light on the palate. This one is really all about the yeast. Mouthfeel is smooth, with light carbonation.
