COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available Bottle Conditioned. Has appeared on cask occasionally.
Full bodied Maris Otter malt with a small addition of wheat and Vienna malt are aromatised by a typical Belgian charge of coriander. The result is a smooth, sweetish, luscious and fruity experience. The peach and orange notes of the malt base are enhanced by the judicious use of a single American hop, centennial. A very satisfying beer with a Belgian character.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2009
500ml Bottle. Cloudy orange pour with an off-white head. Malty, fruity aroma, hints of honey, oranges, lavender with a noticeable whiff of alcohol. Flavour has some hops, citrus, toffee, marmalade and spice. Combination of sweet and bitter on the palate with a fairly long finish. Kind of like a barley wine, this is refreshing and easy drinking, maybe not as well crafted as some other Durham beers but well worth a go.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2009
From the bottle, a glorius golden brown colour. Nice malt & floral hop nose. The palate is full & the beer has quite some power as you would expect from a beer of this strength but still retains a nice bitterness. Tremendously complex flavours, slight sweetness, honeysuckle & fruit in the mid palate then loads of floral dry hops on the finish. The top belgian breweries would be proud of this, even my wife liked it.
