Smooth malt Flavors of this Belgian-style abbey ale are complimented by traditional imported ingredients. A slightly spicy and complex flavor makes this European celebration-style beer unique and refreshing.

Pours a golden orange with no head except for a light whisp of white. The aroma has fruit, caramel, and spices. The flavor has a caramel and fruit sweetness balanced with an earthiness and light spiciness. The mouthfeel has a slight cloying texture.

OldGrowth (2649) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle, from trade with someone who remains nameless, Good aroma Sweet & sour. Some of the usual things banana, clove, caramel. Little apricot & orange and a buttery streak. Had a distinct musty yeast scent that was more pronounced when cold. Tad hazed brownish orange color (I stopped my pour with some of the sediment still in the bottle) Small to no head, minor lacing. Sweet flavor, While like aroma it doesn’t have the sour streak that the aroma does. Caramel kind of steps it up, clove is muted. Tad astringent. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet spiced finish. Tasty enough. Aroma was cool as it had a nice variety and changed as it warmed. Flavor wasn’t up to aroma. Thanks sir.

Pours a translucent golden amber with a very small bubbly off white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and spices, candi sugar, banana, clove, mixed fruits and malty sweetness. Flavor of banana, clove, Belgian yeast and spices, hints of alcohol and fruity. Reminded me of a American Tripel.

Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is of banana, spice, yeast, caramel, and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is banana and spices up front then gives way to yeast and a slight sweet fruitiness. Finishes with a kick of alcohol. Flavor lingers for awhile.

Bottle purchased a riversbend: Pours copper in color with almost no white head to speak of. The smell is of banana and just a hint of spice. The taste is very nice. I keep thinking the taste is of sweet banana. The taste is just a bit hot, but it doesn’t make this beer bad. In fact, it compliments it nicely.

Pours clear copper color big white head. The flavor is so damn goood, lot’s of crystal malts with a touch of chocolate and roasted barley in there. Pretty spicy and sweet some sight fruitiness and good yeast flavor to it. This abbey style beer just tasted good but what I liked that was different was the chocolate touch they gave it, almost no hops and bitterness at all just straight flavor and alcohol wasn’t present at all, it just tasted awesome, I want more!

22oz bottle pours golden with a short offwhite head that faded pretty quick. Aromas of spice, lots of yeast, a touch of honey and some malty sweetness. Flavor starts off quite sweet with honey and even some candi sugar before it gives way to some slight spice and a yeasty dry finish. Palate is medium bodied and pretty dry throughout. Definite alcohol warmth on the finish..Not bad.. These Hoppin frog beers are for real!
