This pours a hazy golden yellow color with a slight head. The aroma is bold with yeast and grape hints. The taste is smooth and mellow with a decent amount of yeast and grapes. Fairly sweet and quite easy drinking.

Wow. It poured a cloudy orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of yeast, wood, citrus and some white wine. The taste was similar to the aroma, with some spiciness. Not what I expected, but really good.

preffered Deschutes version to this, and this huge bottle cost a little more...but it was a nice, warming zesty BSA. Solid scross the board, fruity. aromatic.,,

Pours a perky golden color wit a bubbley head. Aroma is fruity. Taste is sour, and crisp, maybe a hint of oak bourbon. An interesting Belgian Ale.

Had at a pizza/belgian beer place in a big hotel in Las Vegas. Having had some of the best Belgians around, I hesitate to do US versions. But a recommendation by waiter. This one is no exception....very sweet, to much co2. Distracting alcohol, wine vinious, if it worked as one it may have been better. It is fun testing other beers.

Aroma was really nice on this one. Some fruit notes, white wine characteristics. Some oak and vanilla from the barrels. Taste was slightly bitter, with a bit of funk. Medium body.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 bottle from State Line. Pours turbid and headless orange, with a fizzy head that says, "I’m a blend of the 4 Sisters with some of my mother (Madame Rose) tossed in." Tastes tart, fruity, lactic, very complex, with a tart yeasty fruity nose. This one is stellar, and more complex than the level of math that you failed out of in college, probably 2nd year calculus.
