COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours clear orange amber with a small, off-white film head. Aroma has oranges, vinious, light yeast, some red apples. Malty as well. Fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, malty, some prunes, oranges, vinious. The alcohol is apparent, but the sweetness is fine and balancing. Light coriander in the end.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Dark golden orange with a minimal white head. Malty, with some sweet fruits. Alcohol is not very well hidden. Palate is a little thin. Some added spices and hops. Decent beer I suppose, but far from my list of favorite Belgian Strong Ales.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange amber color with a large creamy off white head. the aroma is a sweet orange citrus with a nice dose caramel malt; spices and yeast round out the nose. The flavor has quite a bit going on but does not always play well together. Caramel malt sweetness with orange citrus, spices, other fruits, and yeast. The alcohol is well hidden. This is more viscous than expected, but smooth going down. OK, but will not be something I seek out.

Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090113]

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Pre-BCTC-08 Campout. Pours a deep copper with a thick yet diminishing head. Aroma is spicy phenolic, ok prickly Belgian yeast character with lots of esters- fruits- pear and apple with lemon zest and some caramel syrupy sweetness. Flavor is also on the sweet side cut through by earthy hops and lots of phenolics and spice, black pepper and cardamon, with more orangey fruits, and a thicker than expected or needed sweet finish. meh.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2009
bottle. short, thick foamy tan head that disappears quickly. amber golden body, mostly clear. some yeasty bits at the end of the bottle. aroma is sweet caramel malt, toffee, light fresh orange peel. flavor is very sweet candi sugar/caramel malt, and fruity like light tangerine and a bit of stone fruit, then also rummy. good, but not as exciting as it sounds. finish is mild alchol heat, aftertaste is the same. very sticky texture.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2009
Golden-orange with a pale-lagerish sweet aroma. Flavor is sweet but very messy. Not a good example of an American take on a Belgian.
