Wow, amazing complexity. Sour at first, but the candied sugar jumps out at you afterwards, and makes this one amazingly balanced brew. I wish I had another right now to drink...

Beautiful clear mahogany with a medium off-white head. Aroma of spiciness, yeast, banana, dark fruits and floral hops. Flavor has notes of cherry, plum, raisin, caramel/toastiness, banana, orange peel, lemon/citrus and noble hops. Pleasantly sweet, has ample hop bitterness to balance everything out. Full and round body with very lively, spritzy carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

Spicy and peppery nose with a touch of fruit and nots. Somewhat acidic and candied palate with dark fruits and cookie notes. Medium head retention with good lacing. Candy sugar prominence with a touch of sea salt on the palate.

’03 bottle. Dark brown with a decent sized light tan head. Aroma of spice an pepper to go along with raisens. Taste is stiff pretty fresh with apricot, mango, pear, green apple and caramel. Starting to lose some of its luster and the alcohol is maked pretty nicely. Body is medium to full with a stickiness.

I was a little disappointed with this beer. Kind of a sour aroma and and a bad aftertaste. I won’t buy this one again

Clear amber clour, surprisingly light for 10% A very good Belgian ale, while not very Christmassy?

Dark orange, lang lasting white head, sour, long aftertaste. Maybe served too warm.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy deep orange-red with a few black floaties and a thin, but retentive, whitish head. The aroma is orange zest, clove, some malt, and other spices. There is a caramel sweet maltiness up front, with a quick hit of the alcohol close behind. There are a lot of autumnal spices detectable, and the finish is largely clove and maybe cinnamon. This is definitely good for drinking in the cold around a fire.
