3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 A punch in the nose of wheat implying banana with pepper and yeast. Deep Belgian orange with frothy tan head and lace. This oneís about two years old, and has plenty of floaters as a result. Syrup sweet flavor which is balanced by hopping as promised. Moreover, this isnít a candied sugar bomb; itís a sugar and hop bomb. Very dense body that has the feel of a quad if not the appearance. In fact, this beerís looks are very fooling. Hard to take lightly though, so the warning is not needed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
25.4 oz bottle. Foggy orange with a big fluffy white head. Nose is honey and yeast, slight floral and citrus. Borderline syrupy with prickly carb that turns foamy. Taste is apricot, butterscotch and grass finishing bitter to balance the candi. Simple with a subtle complexity; alcohol barely apparent. Nice brewing.

Pours a cloudy lemon yellow with very thick frothy head that never completely dissipates. Aroma is a lot of alcohol, hay and hints of pepper. Flavor is bread, earthy hay notes, mild caramel, alcohol. Body is creamy light with a lot of carbonation.

bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow, with very sizable foamy white head. Aroma has notes of sweet spices, lemon, bread, honey oats. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, pretty hard to believe its 10% the way it drinks. Flavor is very spicy, with various bread notes, very soft sourdough underlying the sweet spices, with a generally dry finish, perhaps a touch of white grape, zesty spices, cracker.

33 cl. Golden with a humongous head. Nose is spicy resin, hard candy, and wheat. Taste is the same with a bit of iron, cardboard, more resin, and light vinous notes. Light-medium body is dryish, smoothly carbonated, and watery.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The faint aroma is pleasant and unusual, sort of like pancakes on the griddle. This is a very good Belgian strong ale. When I drink a Wit beer, I want it to taste like this. Itís like a heartier, boozier Wit without as much citrus. The booze isnít hidden, but you are glad itís there. This beer feels more like 15% instead of the quoted 10%. Enjoy responsibly.

11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours cloudy golden with a thick, fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma strong of caramel and cereal malts, spicy yeast, and a nice balance of floral hops. Flavor about the same. Smooth texture. A pretty good Tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orangish brew, diffuse head. The sweet intensity of the bouquet is a bit jarring at first whiff. As I settle to imbibe it more deeply, I am ensconced by sugared corn flakes doused in alcoholic fruit punch which soon becomes more distinct. From peeled layers arises apple, which takes center stage. The body is of a buzzy Belgian apple flavor along a layer of sugar-frosted corn flakes. Definitely a brew that is at once interesting, and also redolent of distinct childhood breakfast memories.
