fairly clean for a belgian. fruity - but not that funky. can’t taste much in the way of spices if they’re there. main flavors are of malt and alchohol (but not in a bad way). medium bodied / well balanced. has a murky pale-amber look to it. very nice.

Enjoyed this beer, strong bitter tasting. Was drinking heavily when I started on this one maybe that’s why it reminded me of a gray clay, but I like clay so that’s all right. Cool bottle.

Straw in the glass, intensely carbonated with a crazy head. Lactic yeast aroma. Something like a light tripel on the tongue--light and crisp, with none of the alcohol slickness you’d expect in a beer this big. Seltzerlike carbonation gives a very dry finish. The best of its kind.

strong bitter hops flavor in the finish, which I thought was a nice change for a Belgian. I couldn’t tell that the alcohol was in there from the taste, which I also I liked. Good fruity sweet flavors witha nice thin lace over a cloudy golden beer. A very good Belgian.

It is okay, a little on the bitter side.

Nice bitter hop bite in the finish. Some honey and fruit in the aroma, yeast. Very low alcohol presence. Nice head that remained for the whole glass. I’ve underestimated this in the past. Ver nice brew.

Golden color, very bubbly and packs an amazing punch. Bitter and slightly sharp, ideal after a heavy meal.

THis seems more like a dopplebock budweiser, but in a good way. A very yeasty flavor on first taste with a somewhat sweet/bitter finish. Somewhat easy drinking, but at the price this stuff goes for, your better off getting something else. Unless ofcourse you are at trader joes where a large bottle goes for only 3.99

Large rocky head, and a very (unexpected for me) light colour. Lovely mouthfeel. Hints of plums and raisins. Very good.
