Sammy (11078) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2007
Light golden orange colour with fizzy head. Pleasant yeasty aroma. Smooth drinking middle mouthfeel. Seems like a discount on the 10% abv. Good Belgium with fruit, some bannana and peach and spice and pepper melange. Mild citrus.

JK (5665) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Cloudy orange and moderate sediment. Lots of white foam and a long-lasting head. It looks great in my Delirium Tremens glass with the etching on the bottom. The aroma has sweet malt and oregano. Flavor is surprisingly dry. It does get sweeter as it warms, but this sweetness is malt and sugar. Salty and some coriander in the finish. Unfortunately it lacks complexity but it does have a good palate. I was hoping for more of an Abbot rather than quad.

Tmoney99 (13347) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle. Poured hazy brown color with an average fizzy light brown head that lasted with good fizzy lacing. Solid complex tart fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet complex flavor with a solid bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Clear copper orange pour beneath a snow white head which leaves great lacing. The aroma is a bit of cider, malt, and alcohol along with some yeast and fruit. The flavor is tangy, sweet, and a bit fruity. There is an astringent alcohol flavor with a toasty malt at the back of the throat that has a sweet aspect and finishes with a light alcohol tingle. Pretty nice flavors and balance.

henrikb (1261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2007
33cl bottled 2003 - Beautiful amber body, huge white head, thick lacing; Incredible deep nose, flowers, bread and alcohol, balanced and pleasant; Initially a very fresh body, balanced, perfect texture and carbonation, as soon as swallowed it becomes incredible sweet (unfitting), flowers and malt in aromas and alcohol showing, very pleasant as well, but doesn’t fit to well with the rest of the beer. It seems that it could easily be kept longer.

Lilith (242) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 21, 2007
Bright orange color, hazy, with lots of small particles ascending to its beautiful creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, cereal, hoppy like bread, wiht notes of honey, toffee and peach. Flavor is similar to the aroma but smoother and more alcoholic and spicy. Liquorish texture, bitter finish.

Panzerfaust (785)
- Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 19, 2007
Bottle from Eurohappy: Pours a hazy dark orange color. Head is big, white though it’s not very persistant. It leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is very spicy, yeasty and fruity. More like a Tripel than anything else. It shows notes of oranges, peaches, coriander, pepper, vanilla and liquorish hints of curazao. After that you can sense a very unusual hoppy aroma of cannabis, resin and pine. Wow, this is weird in a belgian beer. Complex. Flavor is more like a Quad. Intense, sweet, liquorish with notes of cognac, oranges, tequila sunrise, apricots and some berries. Good bitterness in the end along with an alcoholic burn. Great. Body is big, thick oily texture. Very strong alcoholic presence. Warming sensation while sipping. Nice carbonation for the style. Good aftertaste. A very interesting, different brew.
