another great belgian from dicks. dark brown in color. medium thick with flavors of malt and dark candy sugar. lots of hop spice and moderate bitterness. definitely balanced towards the sweet side - very true to the style. very good.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2006
Found this in the back room at Market of Choice. Smells kind of musty, and pours a grainy light toffeeish orange. KInd of malty and fruit forward, with a nice little bit of chalky spiciness. Not bad, but not a favorite.

underattenuated and off grain notes. Little head retention. Some cloying over ripe fruit and mild spice. Acidic and dms finish. not enjoyable.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Very hazy pour sort of a light brown to an orange hue...Very thin head...Very grainy aroma...Fairly sweet with some caramel and spiceyness...Nice hints of dark fruit mainly cherries i think toward the finish...Great beer from Gromit

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2004
750 ml bottle capped with a plastic cork that was a pain in the ass to get out. Poured a darker, hazy brown color with a smaller off white head. Aromas of yeast, sugar, and a little fruity. Lightly sweet with an almost sour finish to it. It wasn’t bad but also, nothing too special.

legion242 (2142) - Richardson, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Murky orange. Wispy head. Nose of dark fruit- and barley cereal with breast milk (I know, I have smelled this alot lately). NIce body- feels good on the tomgue. Slight sweetness expected from the style. Keeps a nice sting on the tomgue.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Not overly alcoholic, nicely restrained. Good aroma with complex fruits, suggesting plum, black cherry, and raspberry. Light, frothy, well rounded with yeast, fruits, and maltiness. Mild to moderate in flavors. A credit to Dick’s.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2004
(750 ml bottle) Pours a cloudy brown with a small beige head. Aroma of dates and mustiness. Flavor of yeast, apple, caramel, and spices.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bottle. Smells like juicy fruit gum and athelete’s foot (not the shoe store). Taste is very mild and earthy. Slightly sweet.

Kevin (2047) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 22, 2004
cloudy tan color, with a fruity black cherry cinnamon aroma. taste is upfront and sugary like a sugar daddy candy bar with booze. cantalope taste in the finish
