Deep amber color with a short white clean head, some lacing left behind. Strong lemony, orange aroma is quite different than other Belgian beers that I have had. Taste is sweet and finishes crisp with a slight tartness. Nice brew!

2012 on the bottle and drank in 2012. Clearly this shows it should be aged. Medium reddish - orange amber with fizzy, lasting, frothy, beige head. Nice lacing. Lovely sweet smell of malt, tropical fruit, caramel, and herbal elements with coriander, honey with notes of yeast.Crisp bubbly smooth medium oily body. Sweet butter malt start with caramel, herbal yeast, tropical fruit and well balanced against the earthy spicy dry finish. Beautiful beer and look forward to an aged version.

Glowing amber color. Fruity smell, Smooth with a spicy, yeast fruit finish that pulls dry right at the end. It takes your palate and your taste buds through two different journeys and then has them meet up right at the end. Great.

Fantastic brew. Pour is a nice light amber with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy but great.

Poured into a trappist glass; Hazy orange color with a frothy 1 finger head; aroma of citrus hops (orange and lemon), cloves, and a touch of yeast from the bottle conditioning; Taste is citrus up front with no bitterness fading to a very lightly bitter herbal aftertaste that lasts; Carbonation is lively and well balanced; Mouthfeel is on the full side of medium. An absolutely exceptional beer. This reminds me of Leffe, which I imagine it is modeled after, but better. Less bitterness and more flavor.

UXO (534) - CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a cloudy copper with a ridiculously unmanageable head, requiring ten or fifteen minutes to tame to three or four pillowy fingers, great retention and heavy lacing. Nose is dominated by brett, with a distinct sour edge, against stone fruit and caramel malt. Taste starts out sweet, but moves quickly to sour, with a lingering sour and bitter finish. Mouth feel is slightly heavy, with lower than expected carbonation. Oh, that’s nice. That’s very nice. Mildly funky and sour, with just enough brett to be interesting, but not overwhelming. Loads of character, with a gentle warming as the bottle progresses.

Pours a nice dark golden amber colour with a thin white head. Fruity aroma with slight malty hints. Rather sweet flavour but some subtle sourness at the end. The further I got into the beer some slight piney tastes came to the forefront. First Goose Island product I’ve tried and very excited to try more.

Superb Belgian from......Chicago? USA does it best (and worst) when it comes to beer. This Illinois beaut is no exception, glowing opaque copper with a crisp white foam. Smells of white grapes, sweet piss, honey, wheat, yeast, basement, raisins and earthy musk. Exceptionally smooth and tasty. Perhaps best described by a friend new to the style as "everything I like about the idea of wine without any of the bad shit I don’t like". A wee bit of spiciness and berries in the taste as well, very mildly bitter with an enjoyable dry fruity finish. Excellent stuff, this.

Quevillon (2577) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2007
Bu au Mondial 07. Dorée foncée, moyen collet beige. Arome d’herbe malté un peu de fruit sec. Bon goût de malte sucré et d’épice doux, des notes de petits fruits. Bref, une version fruité d’Orval.
