The light color is deceiving. This beer is very flavorful. Be careful, it packs a punch! Very carbonated. Smooth, and you aren’t really aware of the alcohol. Stellar taste. Makes a large head.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden color with tiny micro-bubbles. Spice and malt in the front, but bitter in the end. Nice complexity with an array of flavor somewhere between dough and flowers. Good texture if you like really fizzy beers. The alcohol is noticable. However, I like the type of warming effect that it gives.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 7/14/02 lil' bottle: aroma sang with all types of spices. Blindingly white foamy snowball head...the cloudy yellowish orange color blurred what I thought to be some pretty freaky CO2 action going on in the glass..spicy onslaught, with sweet lingerings, the alcohol must have thought it was holloween because it was completely masked, orange peel, cranberry sauce..spicy with white pepper and coriander and pretty damn refreshing
Re-Rate 7/25/02 lil' bottle: I swear this beer is the epitome of breathtaking...Superbilicious awesomatic, and incredibilisistic...I am insane...and so is this beer
Re-Rate Big ol' Bottle 8/25/02: Sweeter, spicier and not as good IMO..I'll be stickin' to the small bottles??

Light yellow color with many many many tiny bubbles and a massive bright white creamy head. The aroma was lightly cloved, with a musky, spiced center to it. The flavor was full of a spicy, slightly acidic, slightly bitter, slightly clove tone. Interesting, complex beer. I think I prefer Chimay White to this, but they are both very high quality beers.

Light straw colored body. White, rocky head.
Peppery, sour and highly carbonated. A hop bite in the end but balanced.
Really like the head on this one.
A little on the choppy side going down (maybe from the bottle fermentation?).

Great dinner-time beer. I really enjoy its complex flavour with a delicate dinner like chicken or fish.
