Fruity and subtle in flavor, but the name is a good description of the punch it packs.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 Bottled. Massive carbonation when poured. It has a clear, golden color, and a creamy, lasting, white head. Cellar, yeast, banana, spices, a bit sourness and berries in the aroma. The flavor is banana, hops, spices and alcohol. Sweet, full body and a quite bitter finish. Nice, but a bit too much alcohol present. Rating: 7-4-7-4-14-3.6. 060531
Bottle, at Cardinal. A hazy, dark amber to light brown beer with an off-white head. Dried fruits and dark sugars on the nose. Some cellar and grains, and a good dash of prunes too. Dried fruits, sugar, grainy notes and some roasted malts, or probably melanoidisation, in the mouth. Full-bodied. A nice one, but a bit on the grainy side. 091106

Draught. Candi, lots of yeasty, some salty sea water/sweat notes in this heady brew. Tasty, sweetish with a good dry backdrop. Looks excellent as well.

A strong candy sweet aroma immediatly bursts forth. The malty aroma dominates and no hop aroma is appreciable. The beer is quite mild with a malty sweetness and low hop bitterness. Despite the alcohol content the beer finishes remarkbly smooth.

La meilleur bìère au monde avec son goût de miel. Quel délice! Forte mais légère à boire, ce qui est trompeur justement lorsqu’on se lève de sa chaisse. Dégusté lentement, légèrement, en toute fraicheur...

On tap at the namesake cafe, Brussels. Thick sudsy white head over clear golden yellow in the appropriate tulip. Lace is sticky from the get go, interesting variegation of dense sheet and large holes in no identifiable pattern. Racing is average. Smells like freshly harvested grains and natural sugars, with orange peel and yeasty coriander. Last time I had this (at Map Room in Chicago a few years ago), I remember not liking it that much. This, however, is much better than I remember (although still not a favorite). The fresh grain is the baseline in the taste with a medium body that somehow maintains a kind of wateriness in the face of the 10% alcohol. On top of the baseline is lots of herbal mintiness, with the edge cut off by grainy sugars. The mint in the finish is more like eucalyptus, and for some reason I’m reminded of bamboo (there’s a low-level woodiness to this). The grains come back in the end (especially corn), and in the very end of the finish get kind of mealy (leaving you with an impression far worse than most of the beer). Very interesting; not something I’d need to have all the time, but every once in a while just to remind you something like this is out there.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark yellow colored, hazy appearance. Big white head. Fruits, orange, spices, lemon, mild licorice and yeast in aroma.
Medium bodied. Sweet flavored with fruits, lemon, apple and spices, aftertaste lasts with spices and
mild orange. Alcohol covered totally in aroma and flavor, wouldn’t believe to have ABV 8.5%.

I had high expectations for this beer, having heard good things about it. I was underimpressed. I gave it high marks for clarity. Too much head. No matter how I poured it (at 40 degrees into a room temp glass) I ended up with 80% foam. The head was beautiful though, white and lacey.
I detected zero hop aroma and very very little hop bitterness. No alcohol flavor either. The sweet, slightly burnt malt and sugar profile came through strongly. Lots of candi sugar I guess.
