4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark golden colour with a thin clingy head. Strong hops aroma. Very warm spicy hoppy taste with a strong but not overpowering alcohol undertone. Spices linger on the tongue.

Bottle at Charlies in Chicago...Poured a hazy golden orange with a bit of creamy off white head. Aromas were very yeasty and fruity, like apricots and bread dough. Flavors were similar to the nose with a hint of bitterness as it warmed. Mouthfeel was slightly lacking, but overall it was enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 On tap at Mahar’s in Albany. Sweet and sour beer, with a bit of bitterness. Even though this one has lots going on, it all comes together, and it’s very deicious.

Clear honey-blonde look. Strong sweet taste of honey with a nice alcohol punch that is rather nice. Nice a fruity with enough alcohol to satisfy anyone. Highly recommended.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2006 Slighty hazy golden body with a moderate sized head. Aroma is lighter fruits soaked in alcohol, some sugar as well. Flavor is much the same, until the aftertaste which is a rush of sugar. As it warmed it became sugar water.

First Belgium beer. It was pretty good, but the jury is still out as to if I like this style. Had a bubbliness to it. Kind of like a Champagne

DT. Yeah, I get it. Mine poured a cloudy orange/copper from the bottle. Reminds me of spiced tea at Christmas. Not much of a head, but there is a remnant as well as lacing around the glass. This is about the only bad thing I can say about this one! The aroma is spicy and slightly sweet. Something on the order of cilantro and cloves along with citrus. Quite pungent and striking in a good way. The clove flavor dominates the palate initially and then a slight bitterness finishes to the sides and the rear of my tongue. I could definitely sense the alcohol in my throat going down and in my burps. The carbonation adds a spicy tingle to the finish. The more I drink, the more this reminds me of liquor.
