12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a lacing white head. Hoppy fruity and slight liqourice nose. Flavour is slight spiced and solid malty. Goes into a classic strong US hoppy flavour, although more on the bitter side than the floral/fruity side. Ends bitter.

fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottled on 2007-02-22, 1 year old, 8% ABV
It pours a cloudy orange-copper color, with a creamy head that disappears quite quickly. In the beginning the aroma is sweet and malty, but this as well vanishes; and later there is more accent on the partially fruity hop, light but nice. It has a good mouthfeel, with a very good toffee flavor and a good hopping, both well bitter and aromatic, with dry resins and character. Long final, very bitter, of Belgian memory. A solid Belgian Strong Ale.
