[4575-20120628] Bottle. Light sweet malt grain and something fruity too. Clear, amber orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Very sweet and thick malt grains in the flavour with a cloying boozy pineapple finish. Full body. Interesting and boozy as hell. (7/4-/6/3/14) 3.4

Pours dark brown with a small fizzy beige head. Aroma is caramel and slight funk. Taste is funky almost balsamic vineagar bite. Caramel.malts with a hop.bitterness. Interesting beer. Dry mouthfeel like a saison. Thanks to.jercraigs for this

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
More of a Belgian strong, worthy of including in a list with fine Unibroue such as Maudite. Yeast up front and then a spicy tasty beer takes over. Cloudy slightly orange. Decent mouthfeel, though carbonation right there. Bottle from the brewery earlier in the year. Very good drinkability.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2012-06-28. Crisp dark orange amber with a nice beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma is pleasant, sweet bready malt with notes of caramel and cereals, modest spice character. 7+ Flavour is similar, sweet biscuity malt up front but spice grows quickly, modest pepper character that is heightened by the modest alcohol particularly in the finish. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate is pleasantly effervescent. Pretty solid stuff. Alcohol is fairly mild in the flavour but warming in the tummy, and grows slowly but surely as you go. I love the initial flavour profile, and thoroughly enjoy it but the alcohol gains enough traction to be dangerous in the middle of the glass. Malt comes out more again once you acclimate, peppery spice lingers in the aftertaste. Very good stuff. Bottle at the Only Cafe, Toronto
