750 bottle with sealing wax, cap and cork. What, no gold leaf? Pours a cloudy peach color with a hugely fluffy white head. Belgian yeast aroma with pineapple and maybe some ginger? The body tends to the light side. Tastes of oxidized apples and peaches. Dry spicy finish. Does a really good job of hiding the alcohol.

750. Pours amber orangey with an enormous fluffy white cumulus head. Big pear and apple nose, smells dry. Tastes dry, with the apple notes predominating. Not much else going on, other than a wee splash of herbal notes in the attack as it warms.

(Newport Microbrew Festival) This is a strong malty flavored Belgian with the right amount of infection (which is good). A great fruity flavor with a well balanced feel. Strong and a good winter beer.

Very nice nose of burnt bananas, bread crust and sweet banana pudding. Sweet up front turning to salty and dry on the back - good hearty dry texture in the finish, with some light biting hops. Mellow yeast flavor present as well. Very good stuff.
