Brilliant, Alcohol hidden really well, quite sweet but not too much. Was one the top beers i got to try at Gabs Festival.

The beerís aroma is a thing of olfactory beauty, with the wonderful Wit yeast esters dancing in step with the spice and citrus additions, the by-products of wheat malt fermentation creating a delightfully effervescent bouquet. That itís 8.4% abv is a fact not to be overlooked, or under-appreciated, especially because the beer drinks so easily, with the illusion of a harmless lightness of body. You think that youíre being refreshed -- and you are -- but after a few small glasses, youíre also quickly on your way from being quenched to quashed! If ever you get the rare opportunity to sample this one-of-a-kind beer, donít waste it! But also, be careful not to let it waste you!

Bottle @ Belgian Brewfest. Nothing really special. Another average Belgian Strong at the upper end of the price scale.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Draft. Pours a hazy golden body with a large white head and great retention. Yeast y with some light spices tones, fruity sweet cots and light floral hop tones. A bit sweet and fruity with a mild warming. Would be even better if this was dry hopped.

Pours golden with a thin wispy off white head. Notes of higher alcohols, esters, white grape, champagne, sweet malt, caramelized wort, and alcohol. Full bodied and alcoholics with lively carbonation.

Nickls (1887) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap) Hazy orange gold color, very thin white head which was a function of the pour given by the bartender (they filled it to the rim with the brew, and didnít leave any room really). Orange and lemon were the predominant aromas, with a good yeastiness for the style. Not nearly as tart as the smell suggested. Definite orange and lemon flavors, with some sweetness. A touch creamy, and not as carbonated as expected. Very rich for the style, but it was very good. Hugely drinkable and refreshing especially given the ABV. Overall, this was like a hybrid between a Belgian Wit and a German Weisse to me, and very interesting.

juiceisloose (1055) - Windermere, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Draft pour from an aged 2008 keg from redlight. Pours a very hazy golden yellow color with a large, foamy white head that settles to a thin film leaving spots of lace behind. THe aroma shows notes of tropical fruits, esters, light candied sugar, and some dry, musty wild yeast. The flavors follow with more tropical fruits, citrus, and candied sugar, but balanced out nicely by the wild, musty yeast. The yeast has really dried things out and added some funk almost like what brett does. Medium bodied with tingly carbonation that leads to a dry, fruity finish. This is a tasty strong ale with the presence of the yeast. Nice beer.

Vintage keg (08) on tap at redlight redlight. Pours a golden straw color with a bubbly, champagne like head. Smells a bit funky with subtle sweetness. Reminds of a baby food fruit...peaches and bananas. Great consistent mouthfeel from start to finish with soft, but solid flavors of tropical fruit. Excellent brew.
