Points for the bottle, very unique. Pours a very golden color with plenty of sediments in the bottom of my tulip. The head is almost bleach white and very fluffy. Slightly citrussy at first with plenty of yeast accents. Finishes a little bitter with some more yeast. Very refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Strong citrus and grapefruit aroma, with malty sweetness. Color is pale golden yellow, semi opaque, with bubbly white head. Initial flavor is sweet with a bitter dry finish. Slight cheesy accent, with lemony sourness. Well carbonated with a rich fizzy mouthfeel. Good. Had on tap at Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis. On tap I noticed an intense gumball flavor. The beer was fairly flat but was overwhelmed by gumball.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I have been putting this off partly because of the $7.69 price tag, and the feeling this brew was just too trendy to be real. Bottle is indeed quite unique with its yellow opaque color and pink elephants on the label. Poured from the 750 ml corked and caged bottle it was a beautiful gold bronze color. Slightly cloudy it produced a big soap suds looking head that left a clean set of lacing rings as it settled. Really powerful nose of yeasts and malts, with lots of spices with coriander most prominent, with citrus, fruit, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is crisp, and feels good going down with a slight creamyness. Finish slightly bitter. But overall while this is good, there are Belgium Strong Ales domestic versions right here in my own back yard such as North Coast PranQster Belgian that tasted just as good, and costs a fraction of what I paid for this one.

Cloudy golden color with 1/2" white head. Banana and some citrus smell. Nice complex flavor with yeast, some biting citrus hops, some fruit. Creamy finish from some malt.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a dusty golden color, nothing like the picture here, with a huge white head and thick lacing. Aroma is strong with fruitiness, hints of yeast, and some spices. Taste is full of corriander, yeast, dried fruits, citrus, and assorted spices that I just can’t pinpoint. Even though is has lots of carbonation, this beer is smooth. It just doesn’t have that defining character to justify a really high rating.

Another tasty Belgian ale. Nice golden/amber color. Nicley balanced with a nice head. Good all year round. Like the funky white bottle as well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 split two ways. The beginning of the bottle poured a clear golden, the middle to end slightly hazy. Aroma is very estery and fruity, some banana and apples/pears. Spices and bread can also be found in the nose. Taste- lemon zest, sweet malts, maybe some candi sugar, bready, apple/pear, and spices. dry finish. actually pretty much a dry beer all around with just touches of residual sweetness. Carbonation is prickly and very lively. very nice strong golden.

If you like Belgians, this is a must try.
