Hazy golden orange in color with a nice pure white head. It has a fresh nose of sweet orange blossom, clove, and a touch of hops. Crisp and round on the palate. The flavor is orange malt with a little spice not much else here, just a faint trace of hops. I’ve had this on tap before and it was much better then.

Wow! Poured deep yellow with a thick frothy head that lingered to the last sip. Aroma was sweet but well balanced by spicy notes. Mouthfeel was effervescent and light. Flavor started out malty sweet but ended dry and mineral with a touch of alcohol. Very well balanced Belgian strong ale... A new favorite!

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2006
Deep golden, orange. Creamy white head. Complex aroma with malty sweetness, dried fruits like apricots. Notes of bergamot? Rounded by coriander. Smooth malty flavour with more citrus, wheat?, coriander and a dash of hops in the finish. Impressive ale.

schuimkroaat (415) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2006
75 cl bottle, ’bbe’ 2008. A bit opaque brassy amber with a weak pearling, the body is visually a bit of a still life. However, it is crowned with an initially gorgeous, unruly white head which does get tamed by time. The aroma is spicy with coriander; also yeasty, hoppy, dusty and orange peel. A dry taste, coriander spicy and hop bitter, backed by gentle fruitiness and ending abruptly into a bitterish aftertaste. Alcohol is noticeable and the body is roguish.

Very sweet, candy sugar. Huge head that disapates quite quickly. Murky copper. Good for an after dinner drink. Not much of an alcohol presence. One of the more sweeter beers I have tasted. Cheers.

rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 29, 2006
750ml Bottle. Floral aroma and a bit spicy. Hazy golden color with a large white foamy head with great retention. Tangy spicy coriander, fruity flavors. Light body for a Belgian strong ale. Alcohol is barely noticeable at all. Certainly not the best Belgian strong ale but nice nonetheless.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Pours a cloudy tan copper with a white head. Smells of sugar, citrus, fruitty. Taste is sour with some nice rasberry notes.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2006
La plus commune des deux d’Achouffes disponible au Québec. Assé bonne belge forte, un peu épicé, pas impressionnante en saveur pour son style. Je n’ai pas dégusté la version RJ.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 Strong belgian style aroma with fruits, spices, and a nice lambic-like sourness. Pours with average head, and a mostly-clear gold. Taste is very fruity,almost beire-de-garde like, with notes of belgian yeast and bread. A nice belgian.
