THOUGHTS: Wow. Very interesting. I donít think Iíve had that much cardamom in a beer since Weyerbacher Decadence. Hid alcohol incredibly well. It was almost like beer, wine and liquor combined with a fruity drink. Simply unique. Gotta love collaborative brews. The aroma stayed appealing throughout, but the flavor got a little overpowering after a while and slightly cloying. I gave the aroma a perfect 10, but I canít explain why except to say that it was very pleasant. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, dark yellow to light orange with an average, slightly off-white head that mostly diminished and left good, but sporadic lacing. The aroma had, candy sugar; light yeast; peach; white wine; honey; sigh alcohol; cardamom; other spices; apricot, orange and slight brandy. In the flavor there was cardamom, brandy, tropical fruits, white wine, candi sugar, other spices, hints of orange, peach and apricot and some yeast. The medium body was a little syrupy and then dry with moderate to rather fizzy carbonation and a light alcoholic finish.

Honey colored; little to no carbonation. Thin frail head that doesnt hold well. Honey and stonefruits; tripel like aromas; fruity on the palate with an alcoholic edge. Very nice but not outstanding.

25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy pale orange with edgy white froth. Nose is yeast, clove; or i guess actually cardamon, and coriander. Medium light, a bit oily, with a buzz. Taste is cardamon, yeast and candi. This was an odd one. Kind of a spiced tripel with the brandy coming out in the finish.

(bottle - 750 ml) golden pour with a fizzy white head. Spice and cardamom dominate the aroma with a mild sweetness underneath. But for the most part, all you get is cardamom. Flavor is sweet and spicy with a ton of cardamom and a mild yeast base. Very spicy and earthy. Didnít really get much of a brandy flavor in it however.

Thanks to Tooch4321 for this one in trade. Pours transparent gold with a receding white head. Nose is big cardamom all over it with hints of other spices, sweet malt, and some pepper with hints of booze and brandy. Flavor is similar with cardamom walking all over the flavor- behind it I get the sweetness of a golden ale with hints of brandy, booze, and more cardamom. Medium-bodied and ok overall.

Bottle shared by markwise, danka. Unique in flavor this wasnít as hearty as I was expecting given the ABV and the belgian nature. Has a lot of stuff going on and Iíd imagine itíd age well. Thumbs up.

wedgie9 (2004) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2011
Tasted on 4/24/11 from a crown capped 750mL bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe. Pours hazy, very bright brassy golden with a very thick white head that slowly recedes to a thick and even blanket of lace. The nose is primarily cardamom, but there are also light hints of orange, honey, and vanilla. With agitation, there are notes of white pepper, hay malt, and earthy aromas. The flavor is more balanced with a somewhat sweet brandy richness, orange, cardamom, white pepper, earthy bitterness, and light vanilla oak. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation and a long cardamom and rich, sweet, brandy finish.

Split with friends we pored the bottle into snifters and were greeted with a two finger white head that stuck around this was perched on top of a golden yellow bodied brew. The nose was sweet and spicy and it was nice enough that you enjoyed it every time you brought it to your nose. The flavor was a little bit of a mess. There is just a lot going on spices and sweet brandy sugarsí. I remember thinking "Wow were is this beer going". It had a good body with ample carbonation. I must say I was a little disappointed with the collaboration between two of my favorite brewers but I do hope the collaborate on another one Serving type: bottle

Bottle picked up by my father-in-law in Indiana. Served in a tulip. Pours a light golden color with a slight bit of haze. Head is pretty short and falls quite quickly without leaving any lacing behind. The nose has some mild fruit esters, cardamom, and a bit of alcohol. A bit faint. Some mild wood as it warms up. The taste is a bit more complex and fulfilling than the nose. The cardamom presence is clear and brigs a light spice. There is also some very mild fruit and some light esters. The wood and a bit of brandy character start to come through as well. The finish isnít quite what I would like--a bit too spicy and dry. Drinks fairly well, though I was expecting a bit more from this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-23-2010

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2011
Pours light to mid amber with notes of cardamon spice. You get a number of fruits driving around such as candied cherries and pears. The finish is long and shows a hint of the ABV.
