3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at The Busted Lift in Dubuque, IA. Slightly hazy yellow color with bubbly white head and lots of lace. Yeasty, earthy nose with a bland fruitiness. Tastes of alcohol, yeast, and melon. Dry. Slightly bitter finish. The high alcohol content warms your esophagus and stomach a touch. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
8oz draft @ Dick’s BBQ 96th Street Indy - Aroma is sweet bubblegum, banana, and spicy pepper. Pours clear yellow with small head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a bit more yeast showing up. Clean thin palate takes away from the overall experience. Not bad but a little sweet and plain.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours honey gold with a big, light tan, fizzy, short-lived head. The smell is intense; bananas, malt, spicy pepper, and a hint of alcohol. The taste is not too strong or too light, it has nice balance and the alcohol isn’t overwhelming. Lingering in my mouth is fruit with a little zip, kind of like clove. I like this beer! I think I’ll have another.

Got it from the tap, it had little head that faded quickly. Complex taste and quiet flavourful. It was hazy and golden yellow in colour. It masked the high alcohol content very well and was very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is served from the bottle at a new pub that just opened up near me. They gave me the whole bottle and gave me a tulip to drink from. It pours a hazy yellow color with a head that didn’t stick around. It has a very fruity and yeast smell to it, but a very good smell. I was not a huge fan of the taste, but it does have a lot of complexities in it, so I had to give it some favorable marks. It has many different tastes, yeast, fruit, spice... Very interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Je ne l’ai pas trouver mauvaise, mais je l’ai trouvé trop aggressive, trop de goût d’alcool. Par contre, c’est probablement la meilleur bouteille, non-trensparente.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large somewhat lasting fizzy off-white head. Sweet aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit, spices, honey and alcohol. Pleasant fruity flavour with sweet malt, spices, yeast and a mild bitterness -- the alcohol is quite present but not in a way that detracts from the enjoyment of it. Dry mouthfeel, medium bodied. This Is really good, it’s too bad our Liquor Control Board feels the need to protect us against the "offensiveness" of the beer’s name -- looks like I’ll have to continue acquiring it from Quebec.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 Had this beer on draft at a local restaurant. It was served in stemmed Trappist glass. Flavor (which is the undeniable highlight of this beer) was fruity, spicy and distinctive. Aroma was good, appearance adequate (yet undistictive), and palate feel was velvety and smooth. Would have again on draft...not sure about in bottle after reading some of the other reviews here.
