On tap. Golden with a big white head. Very citrusy (orange) and yeasty. Sweet and sour. Medium body... high alcohol. A great beer, but not my favorite of this style.

Bottle. Poured a golden color with a huge white head that held out for a while and left thick lacing. The aroma was of spices, fruits, and a light alcohol presences. The flavor contained light spices and some floral hints. Light body.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2007 The aroma is sweet with hints of fruit, spices, and yeast. Golden color but be careful not to pour too fast as the head can get out of control. Flavor mimics the aroma with a fruitiness (cherries?) and spices that is best enjoyed slowly. This rating was from a bottle however, this beer was on tap two years ago at a bar in Baton Rouge and was even better.

The taste of gasoline or rocket fuel when this is young when it is a little aged it starts to taste like a well made triple. Page 242 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide only 363 out his 500 Classic Brews to go.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz. Bottle: Moderately sweet aroma. Smells a lot like a Hefeweizen. Aroma of banana, coriander, spices, and yeast. Poured golden in color with a big, frothy, foamy, white head that lasted throughout. Excellent lacing. Lightly cloudy. Full of floating particles. Very sparkling. Flavor is quite sweet. Lots of spices, mild fruits like banana and pear, malt, and yeast. Flavor is more like a Wit or Hefe. Full body. Thick texture. Lively carbonation. Finish starts out sweet but gets a little dry and bitter and yeasty. Overall, a grerat looking beer that is a little too sweet at times. Like a amped up Hefeweizen.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale golden color with a nice white head that didn’y last long. Lively carbonation. Strong fruity aroma (specially orange) with candy and bubble-gum in it. Well accented yeasty notes and some light spice. Unpleasant acidic sourness in the finish. Complex and elegant beer (same as duvel, only not so good). For certain occassions (for cheers) but certainly not those usual moments that you just look for an excellent beer..

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Got from Chef201atc (Steve):
This belgian strong ale was great. A great Belgian Brewery to introduce to someone not quite familiar with craft beer yet. The beer exhibits notes of Belgian spices, clove, wheat; and notes of light fruit coupled with the brew’s sessionability - both of these appeal to both the veteran and noobie.

A great brew. Cork pops off like champagne. Pour slowly as it heads really quickly and continues to bobble and pushes the head over the top of the glass. Pours golden with some sedements. Taste is excellent, almost like a hefe. Definitely recommend but it is pricy.
