Hints of fruit, citrus comes to mind. Big ol’ white head, served in a glass is excellent. Nice golden color, a deep gold. It comes corked, giving you a special little feeling when you open it. You kinda want to shake it around and pour it on people when you open it. But it’s $8 so you dont. An overall good beer.

Okay, this beer is a little over-rated.
It has a great flavour and typical Belgian greatness, but I feel that the taste has been somewhat sacrificed for the overwhealming strength. Some beers can manage the 8% plus alcohol content without tasting too harsh, but this isn’t one of them.
It’s a strong beer and tastes like it.
Enjoyable for one, but too much after a couple.

Nice pour from a bottle with a generous, lasting head with lacing and a yellow-gold color. Sweet licorice, vanilla and dates in the aroma. Flavor is fruit and spice and everything nice. Nice dry cleansing finish. Another great Belgian Ale.

Oh that’s good, nice colour, nice taste, nice after effect, very quaffable. I’d recommend this to anyone, but watch your legs if you’re sitting down to drink it, they’ll wobble.

11.2 oz. bottle. Best before: November 2007. A slightly hazy pale-gold pour with a HUGE fluffy white head. Chunky lace all the way down my Duvel glass. The yeasty aroma is quite fruity and spicy. Thin body. No surprises taste-wise. Sweet and fruity with spices throughout. Bready with hints of banana and vanilla. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Solid beer.

Sweet, candy aroma. Pours clear blonde with a huge fluffy head. Sharp at first, candy, sugar, sweet, yeast, and a dry finish. Very carbonated.

Bottle. Pours brilliant gold with a huge white head. Excellent flavor really belies the high alcohol content. Silky smooth.
