Really nice head, with a constand stream of bubbles from the etched bottom of the glass. Spicy aroma with cinnamon, clove, and alcohol. Yeast, apricot, and coriander make up the flavor, with a bit of an alcohol finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2006 Pours hazy golden with a huge foamy head. Aroma is sweet, with yeasty and candy sugar notes. Nice coriander hints. Flavor is sweet, spicy, slight hints of citrus, and medium bitterness for a belgian. Finish is nice, but could last a bit longer. not as hyped as Duvel, but just as good if not better in my opinion.

Hazy golden/yellow color. Huge foamy frothy head that leaves quite a bit of lacing on the class. Aromas were heavy on the yeast, also pretty spicy and citrusy. The flavor was sweet and malty, spicy and full-bodied. Really top notch brew.

Pours a bright golden color- slightly hazy, with the most ridiculous head. That seems to be the case with the Chouffe beers that I have tried. Aroma is sort of sweet, spicy and a little bit alcoholic. Flavors seem to match the aroma, with a nice full, sweet malt flavor. Slight banana, and house Chouffe yeast character. Zesty, dry finish. An very nice brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 I have beet curious about this beer for some time. Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a medium golden color with a small white head. The aroma is very faint but has tangy and fruity elements. The body is rather light. The flavor is tangy and fruity - almost cider like on the front and then turns dry and bitter with noticeable alcohol towards the finish. I was not particularly impressed.

The aroma has fruit, spice, incense, malt, yeast, and herbs. The appearance is dark gold with small particles and and a nice head. The flavor is sweet and just like the aroma with the addition of a nice dose of alcohol. The bitterness is moderate. The palate is somewhat thin. Overall it’s very good but not great.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2006 Huge head, white, good lacing, smallish bubbles, somewhat diminishing. Golden color, fizzy, pretty opaque. Very flowery aroma, alcoholy, like Allagash. Intense flower and spices aroma. Coriander, bananas. Fizzy taste, clean sweet aftertaste. Lightish taste compared with the aroma, bananas, flowers, spices. Slight bite of taste in the middle of the taste, but really creamy smooth finish. Not much alcohol taste (which is good) compared with the aroma. Tasty, but missing something in the taste, more fruit, too much flower. Light, slightly watery taste.

Bottle. Poured hazy orange color with a large off-white head that diminished very slowly with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus and spice aroma. Medium body. Medium spicy citrus sweet flavor with a bitter sweet finish of long duration. Standout beer.
