On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a very hazy golden with a small lacing head. Aroma was very fruity, bubblegum, Belgian spices and yeast. Very nice aroma. Flavor along the same lines. Some lemon and listed as a Tripel at the bar which I would agree with. Very solid for the style.

Clear gold. Moderate-to-high carbonation. Thick white head that dissipates relatively quickly. High alcohol content noticable -- but balanced nicely by spicy notes. Better through the first sips as the high-octane nature of the brew makes it almost cloyingly sweet by the end of a glass.

Wow, the ABV warms you right up on this one. Flavors of cloves, spice and banana were there, but the ABV was a little strong. One glas gave a warm glow that was nice though.

[ Bottled ; chilled ; BB 08/07 ]
A fully lasting small fizzy white head that tops up a hazy light yellow body. No lacing. No thin particules. Few small bubbles Aroma presents malt being light hay while hops are very faint herbs Yeast character is light earth. Also, there are faint notes of banana , citrus and apple from yeast. The 11% is well concealed to the nose Initial flavor is lighty biscuity while development is more alcoholic and little acidic. Finish is short Light to medium body... oily texture... Soft carbonation...

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - FEB 22, 2006
On tap at The Taphouse in Norfolk, VA. Slightly hazy gold with a minute white ring of a head. Not much in the nose, a bit of a fruitlike aroma. Flavor is light white grape, some coriander and light malt. Body is light, and, combined with the carbonation, makes this beer really snap off your tongue. Some additional spiciness shows toward the end. Very drinkable, pretty good, but really not stellar.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Poured a hazy dark yellow color with a medium long lasting fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, and yeasty with some fruit and spice. Starts sweet and malty then quickly give you a little fruit before going to a yeasty and spicy finsih. Very warming with just a hint of the alcohol taste. Medium to full body. Some banana and bubble gum as it warmed.
