3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazyish body and a nice fluff head with heaps of brussels lace that seems to condense and become creamier with aeration. Enjoyable yeast aroma with and interesting taste that includes yeast, a muskiness that may be cloves and/or overripe banana and a quality I finally will identify as celery. Perplexing and good because of it.

Big smooth aromatic beer. Very smooth tasting with no alcohol notes. Blond ale with an assertive bitterness to complement the big malt character.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy yellow color, medium-sized longlasting head. Very carbonating. Aroma is grainy and a bit spicy. Taste is more complex than aroma, spicy, grainy, little sourness even. Palate is a bit alcoholic sometimes, but just the right amount. Very good triple style brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2003 My brother had one of these and he said that the carbonation blew the cork off the bottle. Not mine. Opened cold to little carbonation and thin head. Ok carbonation throughout. Aroma is light with peaches and some citrus. Color is a murky light orange. Flavor is quite nice with some fizzy peaches again and some yeast. Finish is a little dry and slightly sour but not too much. Nice alcohol warming. A decent brew but a little light on flavor.

Bright attractive hop aroma, some pears as well. Nice bright clean maltiness, light on the tongue with good carbonation. Reminicent of Duvel to me, but perhaps a bit hoppier. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Cork dated 06-2002. This brew pours a medium white head of all sized bubbles that leave a fair lacing. It has a fruity citrusy aroma and a cloudy dark yellow color to its body with carbonation rising up the side of the glass. It has a fizzy fruity citrusy taste. It is very smooth with only a slight bitterness in its aftertaste. All in all, it was a decent brew.

Cloudy yellow with a sweet fruity aroma that reminded me of orange soda pop. Thin, lasting head and good lace. Nice citrus/spice flavor with lots of corriander and subtle clove. Very refreshing and enjoyable. I bought it for the sax-carrying snail on the label, but will buy again for the beer.
