5th beer at party. Lovely spicy aroma. A very nice beer, that I found spicy and flavorful. A Belgian I could have many many times.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of jerc. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a large mostly-lasting foamy white head and lots of little floaties. Sweet aroma, a little sugary, lots of yeast along with some spices and alcohol. Flavourís also sweet with some yeast, some faint hops and a spicy/ alcoholic finish (also some bottle/metal in the finish) -- Iím not crazy about the aftertaste. Average body. Itís O.K. but itís a little too sugary sweet for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & blankboy - courtesy of jerc. Hazy light gold, tiny white head. Aroma is fruity, a bit spicey, Belgian yeast notes, not bad. Sweet flavour, a bit musty, dry finish with alcohol warmth. OK, but not especially memorable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - bottle courtesy of jerc. Murky yellow-orange, small white head, floaties. Sweet candy malt aroma, like apple cobbler, yeast and alcohol. Taste is very sweet and yeasty, like a fruit pastry with tons of alcohol, has a very sharply bitter spicy/yeasty finish. Thick syrupy body, alcoholic and bitter mouthfeel, bitter almost harsh aftertaste. Considering how many times this has moved from fridge to fridge in the last year, acceptable - a little harsh

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 Bottle at the Chapitre in Namur (Belgium), 2002 vintage. Amber with a foamy white head, along with vinuous fruit aromas, yeast and pepper. Smooth and light at first, but and dry in the follow through. Vinuous fruit flavours with a touch of honey sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fast and white over a murky, golden/orange. Fruity, yeasty aroma with tart cherry, ripe banana and sharp & spicy esters with a mild metallic note to detract. Sharp, fluffy mouthfeel with some burning in the gut-feel. Flavor is heavy on the fruit with bready yeasts and pale malt accents, but there is a sweetness that cloys. ABV hides in the flavor until the aftertaste. Iíll stick with La Trappe or St. Bernardus for this style.
