Cuvee is kind of brandyish--it has deep brandy and cotton-candy and yeast flavors, and isn’t too hoppy. It’s a world class player.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2002
A lot of sediment in the bottle (a 750ml), but don’t be put off by it, the yeast actually adds quite a bit of flavor. Malty sweetness throughout. Very tasty.

Rich malty brew with typical Belgian ale estery notes. Slight cidery flavors mixed with hints of licorice and spice. Very smooth, with an alcohol warming in the finish.

Always have to have a glass of this when I’m at Monks Cafe in Philly. Cloudy brown, sweet and real yeasty.

Fruity hop aroma. Caramel coloured body with characteristic strong head. Sour, bitter flavour with some sour fruit in the aftertaste. Not as much alc. taste as expected. Great stuff, am I the only Australian who likes this? Drink through the head for a creamy taste.

Draft at the Mesquito Grill in Doylestown, Pa. Good beer. Nice malt flavor to it that hid the alcohol pretty well.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a hazy deep amber with a 1/4 inch off-whit ehead. Some persistent lacing. Aroma is very fruity with hints of barnyard funk. Lightly bitter. Tastes fruity. Hints of sour apple. A bit funky. Bitter. A crisp biting bitterness. Blends nicely with the funk and the fruity. Crisp in the mouth and lightly sticky. A bit of a sweet aftertaste. Pretty tasty. A good Belgian ale.
