12oz bottle. Pours a deep hazy golden orange with a huge fluffy white head that lingers for ages leaving big sheets of lacing. Aroma is fairly subtle and consists of biscuity malts and citrus, including some tart lemon notes. There’s also the underlying Belgian yeasts and spices in the end. The taste is a slightly sweeter version of the nose with the aforementioned Belgian yeasts coming to the forefront and a much stronger fruity sweetness than the nose, with a hint of bananas in there. There is also some spices in the finish with a slight hop presence as well. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with tons of carbonation and leaves the tongue tingling after ever sip. This is a great Belgian from Goose Island and one that I look forward to trying again. Highly recommended!

Pours a dark amber in color. There’s a ginormous three inch head on the pour. Looks great in my Duvel glass. Smell is spicy and yeasty. A little bit of spice in the taste. Very creamy and full in the mouthfeel. A bit of hops in the flavor as well. Not overly complex.

Nice to look at. Slightly sour, but in a Belgian yeast sort of way. Really tasty malt and yeast combination. Slight bitter hop presence. Maybe a little too easy to drink. Great job!

The beer pours a yellow orange very clear with a thick white head. The nose is a mix of citrus and yeast with a spicy note. The taste is great a well balanced mix of yeast and spice with a nice finish. Yummy

Found this on draft at Charlie’s Ale house in Munster, IN where iticame a rich amber wtih good foamy with head. Nice head for a pub pour. Nose of ripe fruit. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavors are again of ripe fruits and he finish is clean . Great brew and I am very glad i discovered this one. Great way to end my beer drinking expedition in the midwest before catching the plane home.

Pours an amber colour with a large foamy off white head. Aroma is initially candied fruit (orange), apple/pear upon closer scrutiny. An earthy yeast underneath. Flavour is spicy and earthy, pear and orange peel fruitiness. caramel malt underneath. Finishes with a clean refreshing tartness. No hint of it’s 7%. Very nice.

I had this on tap at West End in Chicago. Came out in a trappist glass looking beautiful. It was a gorgeous dark amber color with a very frothy 1 finger width tan head. The aroma consisted of a lot of yeast with some fruit undertones. I wish we would have sat inside so I could enjoy the aroma more. The taste was very refreshing with a lot of sweet caramel malts and a lot of spices and fruit. Finished very smooth. I have heard great things about this beer and definitely believe what I have heard. An excellent brew!
