moderate fruit/pear aroma; winey, fruity tartness in flavor; hints of orange peel, pepper, and cloves; medium body with a slightly oily textue; very good brew, nice as a sipper or after dinner beverage.

On tap at the Moan and Dove's Belgian Beer Fest. Golden cloudy color with moderate lace. Aroma is cidery, tart and sweet. Taste is quite dry, appley, quite tart with a noticeable alcohol presence and a lightly bitter finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Beer pours (in flute glass) a dark golden colored liquid with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to near nothing. Aroma is of hops, straw, grass, vegetal. Flavor is of strong hops, straw, grass. Easy to drink, but too typical of similar yellow, crappy beers. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ignore the jokey packaging, this strong blondish amber beer is quite serious in intent. Lots of spicy characteristics and citric nuances disquise the alcohol quite well and make for a dangerously drinkable beer. Rather pleasant. Dulle Griet bar, Gent, September 2003

I like the drug theme on the packaging. ANyway, I really like this one. Very sweet smooth typical (tripel karmeliet style) smoothness hiding alcohol under a weird tart sourness. Very cool.

Pretty typical looking Belgian with a thin head. Sweet aroma mixed with fruit, citrus, and liquor. Taste is not as sweet as expected but fairly smooth. Pretty unique bottle wraps this all up and makes it a nice beer to relax with.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice looking golden beer that waits for you under a small white head. Very pleasant aromas of banana and honey. The malty and yeasty taste gives place to a nice hoppy bitterness. At the end remains the alcohol taste. A nice warming beer. And a fun label.

Blonde color with a nice fruity sweet Belgium yeast aroma. Strong alcohol taste overwhelms any flavor nuances.

I liked this beer. It didn't impress me as much as one of it's more-widespread countrymen that I've also reviewed, but I was nonetheless pleased with the experience. My one significant personal caveat would be an overabundance of tart in the body of the taste.

aroma much like cider; the color is also a cloudy brown like cider; very light head that quickly disappears; slightly sweet taste with a definite alcohol finish - the alcohol almost overwhelms the other tastes
