This Belgian Style ale was brewed to excite the senses. We used copious amounts of Pilsner malt which was balanced out by Noble European hops. To add to the excitement we used late additions of coriander and bitter orange peel. The bulk of the character is provided by the traditional Belgian yeast and oak aging. This beer is truly a religious experience. IBUís: 60 Alcohol Content: 8.7%

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 Goblet at Deschutes in Portland. Mostly clear dark amber brown color with a very small film of a head. Nose of caramel cherries, crackers and smoked grains, it says noble hops and pils malt is used? Couldnít tell you. All I get is a strange and overbearing coriander/orange peel note thatís out of place is what is supposed to be a big quad-like Belgian strong. The oak aging is noticeable but doesnít really do much, which is really the fault of the body, itís much too thin and weak, does not stand up on the palate. Did they filter this before kegging? Overall it improves with temperature, which is nice enough, and the oak tannins show up and actually improve the beer when warm, but the clash of Belgian yeast (which should be fruity enough) with orange peel and spices just doesnít win any points with me.

On tap at the new PDX Tap House. Pours brown with a tall fizzy khaki head. Spiced up nose, citrus, clove, and coriander. Fairly dry on the palate, good crispness to it. The malt flavors were solid, bisciuts, caramel, and faint cherry, pairing well against the higher carbonated palate, never to heavy, but enough good flavors not to feel airy. I didnít pick up much oak in there though.

On tap at Portlandís new location--Poured a bright, deep copper-orange-amber body with a soapy white head. Not too estery for a Belgian strong ale. Floral hoppiness with a well balanced spiciness. Somewhat boozy in finish, but mostly well masked and quite tasty.

X-Tap @ Brewpub: Pours a medium depth golden with a smaller white head. Aroma of light spice and malts. Flavor is citrus and spicey, bits of yeast. I picked up the orange peel, but the coriander was a mystery until reading the description further. Crisp, yet retains a little woody character. A nice ale.
