Beerly There (20) - Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2006
Classic bottle art. Cloudy orange with a medium sized head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a little musty with noticeable alcohol. Slighly sweet with a moderate malt backbone, spicy - the coriander is understated but noticeable, the hops kick in toward the end as it gracefully slides down your throat. Another great beer from a great brewery.

thewolf (11349) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2006
Pours muddy yellow with lots of yeast and a good white head. Aroma is citric and wheaty with clear yeasty tones. A touch vinious, sweet and quite fresh with fruity tones.

alexanderj (3382) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle. Poured a clear, very light amber. Almost gold. Very large fluffy white head. Smells like a Unibrau beer. Slowly dissipating. Aroma of fruit, yeast and spice. Flavor was of yeast, fruit and some spices. Didn’t catch much hops. Was expecting better

Had on draft at Eulogy at the suggestion of the bartender. Beer was golden in color. It was an enjoyable beer which went smoothly. Could taste some spices.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Draught @ Isaac Newtons (in Chimay trappist glass). Golden pour with a light fizzy head. Sweet smelling, fruity malts. Taste is of light citrus candy with nice malty undertones. Very well hopped for a Belgian beer. Smooth and slightly bitter finish that is very satisfying. Will have to try again.
