12 ounce bottle thanks to David. Pours a quite clear orange hue with a medium white head. A pretty thick and creamy head. The aroma is sweet fruity malts, alcohol heat. The flavor is nice; tangerines, spices, zesty, some dryness, light heat, a somewhat bitter finish but overwhelmed by loads of sweetness. Nice.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 Bottle, Tapping the Vine. Finally got this one after a friend recommended it. Nose is slightly yeasty with heavy hits of citrus and spice. Nice golden/redish amber color. Flavor is exquisite with cinnamon spice, citrus and grape/plum accents with a lingering banana sweetness that carries this beer off with a nice finish. Sweet and enjoyable. It has a belgian flavor but a uniqueness all its own. Definitely recommended.

dchmela (2601) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2011
From the 12oz bottle. Deep amber pour with a thick off white head. Citrus peel, coriander and a touch of maple in the aroma. Lots of Belgian character in the taste with heavy emphasis on the spices. Very easy to drink for the abv and good on a warm winter day.

bottle. pours a brilliant orange with a 1/4" white head. yeast / light fruit / candy nose. medium body with some tropical fruit and way too much sugar... this is sweet as hell. light fruits on the finish with some light Belgian yeast qualities and more sugar. this is far from a Quad...

Bottle thanks to jcwattsrugger. Pours semi cloudy amber brown. White head. Nose of nutmeg, mint, yeast, cinnamon and star anise. Taste is buttery. Lots of mint, nutmeg, cinnamon and medicinal notes. Odd.

bvc (1146) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2011
12oz bottle. Pour a lightly hazed orangey caramel with very small ring of a head. Orange malty sweetness with a hint of candi sugar and a hint of minty booze. Sweet candi sugar, cake batter and pineapple in the flavor. Lacking yeast character.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Nose is full of candi sugars, belgian yeast, oranges, apricots, and menthol. Pours orange amber thin sheets of lace and a little foam on top. Flavors of menthol, alcohol, light colored raisins, sugars. Carbonation moderate. Finish hot and mentholly. Not my favorite.

markwise (4424) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
On draft at FBG Fest 2011. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is the essence of Belgium- yeast, banana, light tropical fruit, malt, some grassy hops, and hints of berries. Flavor is similar with lots of fruit and fruity esters to go around. Enjoyable and very Belgian- plus well-hidden alcohol; medium-bodied, a bit syrupy, and a sipper/
