Bottled, at The Map Room, Chicago. Sweet and not what I come to the US for. To it’s credit it had the obvious fizz, yeast and zest of the style, with decent complexity. But get me back to the bludgeoning hops that the US is famous for.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 12oz bottle, 2006 vintage, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a hazy, dark golden orange color; off-white head with patchy, fine-bubbled lacing. Very pleasant, tart aroma, showing excellent yeast, citrus, and doughiness; very well-composed Belgian ale. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy Belgian sugar, mildly tart citrus, with doughiness and plenty of layered sugar; excellent, tasty Belgian core, with a nice hop character and red fruits throughout; dense and generous. Medium, Belgian sugar and dough and dried red fruits in the finish. 9.4.8.4.15=4.0

Trade courtesy of Monger! Pours a gold to reddish-amber color in the glass, topped by a medium off-white head with good retention and big-bubbled lacing. Generous nose: honey, spices, pepper and hints of vanilla; perhaps some citrus (lemon). Good carbonation, solid malt backbone - light maple syrup qualities, lemon, vanilla at the edges. Lacking a bit of complexity in the mouth, reserved spiciness, and a disappointingly light finish. 8.4.8.3.14=3.7

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle: Columbus tasting shared by moejuck. Clear gold in color, white head. Bottle was a bit of a gusher. Aroma, spice (cloves), and soem yeast to it. Flavor was a bit floral and yeasty with some pale malts. Not bad.

I am sorry, but this stuff is awful! Tastes like spoiled food rather than beer. Yuk!!

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours a medium gold with a quickly fading head. A little of everything. Spice, hops, yeast, malts. Nothing really takes control and stands out. But an overall nice mix.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Golden color with lots of foam. Light and sweet candy aroma. Sweet malty-candy-fruit flavor with a light hop finish. Well done beer that finishes well, but I think I prefer Demolition by a bit. Will have to re-sample several times to be sure.

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 31, 2006
"Poured a cloudy orange color with some sedimentation. almost zero head to speak of. Aroma was of coriander and yeast. Flavor was of yeast spice and a hop finish to it that bit the tounge. Mouthfeel was a very dry finish."

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a medium brown color beer with a nice big foamy head with good retention. Aroma of sweet cookie dough with some yeast characteristic. Taste is somewhat dominated by the sweet cookie dough, some yeast and some dry fruits. Body is a bit thin and carbonation is just perfect. Overall, I wasn’t expecting this to be such good Belgian ale.

Huge thanks to Mike for the bottle. Cloudy orange, thin head. Nose is orange, funky brett, grape pop (faint) Flavor is quite reminiscent of orval (!) Bretty funk, grape gum, slight acidity. I wish this was a tiny bit drier but this really is quite stunning.

Ratman197 (11252) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle poured a clear golden orange with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of peaches, light carmel and spice. Palate was light bodied, slightly tart and slightly dry. Flavors of fruitiness, straw and spices with a dry slightly astringent finish.
