4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours bright, hazy, very light colored yellow with a huge, rocky, thick white head. Yeasty aroma with hints of fruit (apples, pear, grape), citrus, a little bit of grain, and spice. I love the taste of this beer. Itís sweet, but in a very subtle way, fruity, yeasty, malty, and finishes spicy and dry with just a touch of alcohol. This beer has character without being excessive in any way. Always a good choice.

Close to perfection in the definition of the style. A beautiful Belgian Strong Ale!
Pale amber color with a billowing white head. Yeasty aroma with a hint of vanilla. Malt hits you initially, but ALCOHOL hits you in the finish. No hop notes evident.

Poured a large bright white, rocky and retentive head that lasted to the end. The color is a bright yellow color. It is a little hazy with a good showing of effervescence. Smell is fruity, earthy, and citrus. Taste is sweet, fruity and with a dry peppery finish. It has a great balance of tastes, mouth feel, and a crisp finish. A very distinctive character.

Pours a pale straw yellow with a mountainous fluffy white head. Chunks of lace left in itís wake.
Aroma is kind of grainy, kind of yeasty.
Flavor is kind of lemony, kind of apple, sweet/tart,
A crisp refreshing brew. The alcohol kind of sneaks up on you, the 8.5 isnít real noticed until you about finish the bottle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat beer-like, fruity and estery, sweetish hops and spice. Taste is strong, slightly alcoholic after swallow, and a weird sweet-but-dry aftertaste. This is a very good, strong, yet refreshing beer. Interesting mouthfeel.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 8 May 2004 - Fruity pear malt aroma. Hazy golden colour, white head and excellent lacing. Light sweet malt, intense fruit complexity, slight pear and wheat flavour. Long lingering taste and full bodied. A beer that is light but yet disguises the alcohol.
