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 at Monk’s Café, Wallingatan
Golden color, small head. The aroma is simple, a bit fruity. It has some sweetish caramel flavor, with an evident honey side. Correct bitterness, but also the alcohol shows up. An ok beer, but it can be boring.

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2009
Flaske: Meget parfumeret duft på en orange øl med et meget lille skumhoved. God mundfylde med et godt bid. Meget domineret af alkohol og krydderier. Ikke så balanceret men bestemt drikbar.

omhper (19626) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2009
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Clear amber, no head. Aroma of marzipan and glue. Sweet and grainy with lots of marzipan. Way too sweet. Very non-Belgian feel to it with it’s overpowering residual sweetness, yet alcohol clearly shines through. Ther are some pleasant flavours of orange and marzipan, but overall it’s more of a syrupy alcoholic golden strong ale than anything Belgian style.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2009 Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear orabge amber colour with nearly no head. Clean sugary of candied oranges, apricots, rubber and peppery alcohol. Full-bodied with clean cloyingly sweet notes of candied oranges, marzipan and honey. Long sweet finish of candied oranges, mild grassy hops and peppery alcohol. No thanks.

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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - 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.
