Strong golden ale. Lots of fruitiness and some alcohol smell. A little rough around the edges, just the way I like it. HUGE head, nice bottle so it gets 5 for appearance.

After rating the worst stuff in the world I felt like heaven, drinking this Paradise-liquid. Wonderful orange, apple, grain and lemon aroma. Nice clear orange with a little white head. Fruity apple, apricots and cinnamon flavor with a short refreshing finish! Reminded me of the apple pie my mom uses to make, wonderful!

Apples and oranges in the nose. Big fluffy head with great retention. Sweet flavors up front (apricots) that give way to a pleasant spiciness (nutmeg?) that reminds one of an apple pie. Medium bodied and smooth. The alcohol pumps up the flavor. Hard to believe this light colored brew is 9%. Complex and enjoyable (particularly after just getting throught 4 drain pours).

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2003 Strong Belgian ale! Blondish brown in color. Strong spice taste mixed with banana and orange and maybe even maraschino cherries. Strong carbonation and alcohol. Didn't care for it at first, but it's definitely a classic now. Recommended.

Sweet & slightly spicy blonde. Actually that sounds better than this beer was. Alcohol was well hidden. Good but not worth the price.

I really didnít like this beer, extremely sour, bitter and sweet. Iím not about to re-rate at $7.50 a bottle.

Strong beer. Fruity, malty, a little sweetness. A good beer for the winter.

Rerating this, as further experimentation has shown this to be better than originally thought. Clear golden yellow. No real head to speak of, but large, sticky bubbles float on top, as if itís not quite willing to give up the ghost of carbonation. Taste is wonderfully chewy, yeasty, and fruity, like chewing on a giant candied banana. Yum.

Gargantuan honey bananas dipped in warm alcohol…Luxuriant pale malt resting peacefully on earthy spices…Lying on the grass and gazing at the summer moon…

A strong golden ale that was fruity and very sweet. Nice citrus aroma and flavor. The draft version was very foamy. This would make a great after dinner beer.
