Nice ruby colored pour....minimal tan head. Big sweet dark fruit aroma...with a notable yeasty alcohol edge. Flavor is just as sweet, orangey alcohol flavor and quite tasty. One of the better Christmas brews Iíve had...warming and balanced.

Draught at Delirium cafe Brussels. Deep red and residual head. Fiery, warming alcohol dominates. Some solvent character perhaps detract from an otherwise pleasant experience.

2005 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden brown color with a thick frosty beige head. Aroma is tangy lemon with yeasty hops, sourdough bread and brown sugar. Taste is acidic citrusy with hints of caramel,brown sugar,lemon,dough bread,sour cherries and even bubble gum. Very nice and slightly different than your typical belgium style.

This 18 dollar bottle was well worth it. It has a heavy sweet flavor and a lot of alcohol, but you cannot tell. The bottle is very cool, painted glass.

750 ml 2005 bottle brought to a tasting by frizzzzle and shared with csbosox and Indra. Poured a firey copper with a stone colored head. Lots of Brussels lace. Aromas of peach, mint, berries, Juicey Fruit, and some yeast. I caught flaovrs of smoke(?) cherry, some citrus, sugars and tartness. Really nice on the palate. Nice drink.

frizzzzle (76) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Pours a brightish red color, clear, with a medium, fine, light tan head. Lacing is very smooth and thorough throughout the drink. Flavor is predominantly sweet, with cherry notes. Mouthfeel is prickly, with a bit more carbonation than Iím used to. This beer has a nice, strong flavor, with a relatively dry flavor.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Bottle. Nutty brown color with an off-white head. Malty, caramely head, with spices and yeast. Some vanilla, oaky, and bourbon notes. Metallic. Overly sweet, slightly acidic, oranges, apples. Iím not impressed. Leaves and artificial sweetener aftertaste. Not horrible, but I donít like it.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2006
(750 ml. bottle @ The Real Beer Expo - Rochester, NY) Orange/amber in color with a puffy and lasting white head. Aroma is loaded with malts, spices, yeast, caramel, and some plums. Flavor is very smooth and malty with some nice dark fruit flavors and a spicy finish. Very warming, even though the 10% is hidden well. Aftertaste is very dark and malty with some sweetness.
