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!

LinusStick (3014) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2008
A delicious and spicy Belgian. Aroma was nice. Starts out very yeasty and fruity but as it warms smells like Sea Breeze and band aids. Pour was a flat dark gold with no bubbles or head. Taste was delicious. Strong spices and yeast on the sides of the tongue with sweet apple, pear and orange peel on the back of the throat. Crisp and refreshing. This tastes and smells like a Jolly Pumpkin beer.

sstackho (249) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2008 Draft at Goose Island Clybourn brewpub. A clear light gold, little head or carbonation. Light yeast aroma. Flavour is rich, sweet, but not overly sweet. Lightly spiced. Medium bodied. Some light hops as it goes down the throat. Not as complex as I like my Belgians.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2008
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy pale amber color with a low creamy white foam. Fruity aroma of apricots, banana, yeast, cloves orange-flowers with distinct notes of hay-like hops. Medium-bodied with notes of banana, orange-peels, yeast, yellow plums and white bread. Long medium-bitter finish of orangey and hay-like hops with touches of yellow fruits and banana in the background. An elegant quaffer.
