Coppery-orange, cloudy pour with thin white head. Aroma is fruity, cloves, and bologna. Flavor is smooth, with Belgian sugar and yeast. Fruity, with a somewhat bubbly mouthfeel. This is very smooth, indeed. I was sucking it down like Coca-Cola. Pretty impressive for a 9.3 abv brew. This is prob my fave from this brewer.

Campy877 (179) - Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle. Hazy copper yellow color with a thin white head with heavy lacing. Aroma is sweet honey and spice. Has a nice full bodied flavor of sweet fruit, honey and spices with a potent alcohol overtone. Very nice take on a Belgian Trippel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2014
From bottle. Caramel, toffee, fruity with alcohol. Rich and musky. Deep amber-orange clear with thin lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts and stays sweet with alcohol and caramel. Belgian Dubbel quality, smooth sweet finish with dark fruits, moderate bitter finish with lingering sweet after and bitter undertones.

Bottle. Pour a hazy reddish copper with a small creamy beige head. Belgian candi sugar, malts, bubblegum and dark fruit is the aroma and taste. Nice.

libertine (232) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2014
pours amber with a think white head. Minimal lacing.aroma is a a little spicy(coriander and white pepper) and leathery. flavor of coriander, bubblegum,burnt sugar, and orange zest. medium/full bodied with a slick mouth feel. alcohol is pretty well hidden. finishes astringently bitter. This is o.k good for the price.

12oz bottle, from a 4pk purchased from Woodstock Wine & Cheese in Michigan. Pours a mostly clear amber color. Thin off-white head. Loose bits of lace, eventually fades to a minimal ring of head. Up front, pretty big-bodied and belgian-y. A lot of belgian yeast and candi sugar up front. Kind of spicy, some candied orange. Bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light spicy. Alcohol reasonably well hidden, but the bigger body and sweetness is not. Overall, a solid belgian golden strong ale to sip on. Meets expectation for the style, but doesn’t meet the higher expectation that I have for Greenbush.

drdisque (570) - Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark copper. Flavor is sweet, moderately malty, with moderate alcohol burn. Decent richness of palate. Decent Belgian Strong Ale but nothing exceptional.

wmubronco1992 (640) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a murky amber. Small white head. Aroma of Belgian spices. Flavor again contains Belgian spices including bananas and cloves. Also dark fruits. Nice robust palate. Another very nice beer from Greenbush, a place that I must visit soon.

Not to familiar with this style, but guessing this is a good American interpretation. Good medium dark color, light head. Aroma has some fruity notes. Taste is strong and not too bitter. Good beer.
