3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Statelineliquors last belgian tasting. Large tan head, retention is very good, sticky, webby lacing that lasts. Clear brown, red hued ale. Nose is fruity, lightly spicey and malty. Body is med/full, creamy on the palate, soft carbonation. Nice spicey flavors followed by lightly sweet caramelly notes and some dark fruits, raisins and a hint of plum and faint chocolatey notes to boot. Finish is kinda sweet, fruity and lasting. Nice brew, 10.5 % ? never would of guessed! Thanks Roberrrrrrt!

12 oz bottle purchased from Andersonville Wine and Spirits. Pours a dark brown amber with a beige head ... i was expecting something a little more ... gulden. Complex malty nose, brown sugar, citrus, toffee, yeast, dried fruit, and alcohol. Similar sweet flavors with fruit and toffee dominating. The alcohol and phenols from it are very present, too much so for my liking. A little overcarbonated. But overall I was surprised by this beer Iíve passed up so many times.

Cloudy, deep amber color, nice fluffy head. Smells very sweet and fruity, I canít detect much of a hop presense with my nose. A very nice beer, malty and sweet fruit tastes to start, finished a little dry, almost like wine, probably because of that ABV.

bottle. Aroma of raisins and banana. Very sweet due to the unfermentable sugars, and surprisingly smooth considering the 10.5% alcohol content. Very pleased with this Belgian.

Yeasty metallica aroma. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin with noticeable, almost fusel alcohol and some metallic bite. Bittersweet to the core. I was expecting better out of this one.

Wow. I was in heaven with this selection. Very flavorful, sweet, and full bodied. Just take a sip, close your eyes and experience all the wonderful dimensions. This stuff had Belgium written all over it and thank god for that! I love Belgian beers and this is one of my absolute favorites.

Suprisingly good to me...ya, I know itís really sweet - but it seemed to work for this one. Tasted some plums, raisins, and caramel type stuff goin on. Couldnít detect any of the 10.5% and it had a nice smooth palate. Only knock is that any flavor in the aftertaste was gone, gone, gone in seconds. But the mouthfeel was there...much enjoyed. Cheers J!
