This had a huge white head of long lasting merange.quite annoying.Color light gold.aroma was yeasty and hops.Tasted like yeast and hops.somewhat bubbly like champagne.I thought it tasted alot like the Schiltz malt liqour,but mild,and better balanced.I didnít care much for this.Sour aftertaste.Probably wonít buy again.

33 cl. Bottle. Pours a hazy(if your not careful with your pour) light golden with a huge fluffy white meringue head and sticky lacing. Sweet fruit (pair & apple), and yeasty bread dough in the nose. Great combo of malt, yeast, fruitiness that is sweet but not cloying. The texture is creamy and the alcohol is well hidden to make it very drinkable. Great beer.

750 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful slightly hazy golden amber with a white cloud like head.Aromas of spice and light citrus and yeast with a balance ofmaltiness that goes down so good and smooth with a nice finish.A very nice beer that I will have many more times.

My first belgium beer consumed in Dec. 1978 before heading out to see "Itís a Wonderful Life". It was wonderful also.Have consumed many more since then. Golden color with a lasting head that drinks deceptively easy for the amount of alcohol in it.

Bottle. A cloudy, deep golden color. Thick, lasting, creamy white head with foam that sits on top until your last sip. Sweet fruit aroma. Moderate to full body beer - creamy consistency. Taste is sweet then fairly warm and spicy. Heats up your throat a few seconds after you swallow - in a good way. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed - weíll be back to this one.

Golden color and a huge white head that laces nicely on the glass. Fruity smell... rasperries, pears and maybe some apricot. Sweet tasting but not particularly complex. Surprisingly refreshing for an 8.5% beer.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 Pale yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is clove, sugar, pear, yeast. Flavor is sweet, with fruit and clove notes. Finish is a bit bitter but not as bitter as delirium tremens but stonger than leffe. Has enough of a bitter kick to keep it from being too cloying. Nice warmth from the alcohol as you finish the bottle.
