RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAR 19, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 Pours a hazy amber in color with a quarter-inch off-white head that quickly fizzes away. VeryBelgian aroma: yeast, fruit, sweet malts, a slight sourness. Flavor is sweet malt, apricot, yeast, and banana bread with a warm alcohol burn. Fizzy mouthfeel due to high carbonation. Very flavorful, very strong - almost a whiskey-like burn as it goes down. A great beer.

Enormous offwhite creamy head with some larger bubbles. Hazy amber body. Intense sweet aroma with marzipan-like notes, also some fruit and alcohol. Sweet, fruity, spicy taste with somewhat musty notes and lots of alcohol warmth. Very nice.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Pours a dark brandy copper color with a full, semi creamy froth. Hangtime is superb w/ full, sticky residual lacing. Minimal residual effers in the glass, almost flat by sight. Aroma is mild w/ dried dark fruits and Belgian granite. Full nectar w/ ample residual effers that only reveal themselves on the palate. Quite explosive. Flavors of cherry, fig, raison, plum, apricot, kiwi, and a light push toward rootbeer. Other nuances of tobbacco and leather. The sweetness factor is moderate yet gets a lending hand from the tart kiwi for balance. The alcohol is mildly noticable. Finish is long with w/ a moderate sweetness and a slight tartness that lingers. Overall: an interesting specimen worthy of mention. Highly recommended.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
This beer introduces itself with a hearty aroma consisting of yeast, malt, and wheat. It is a copper colored solution with a thick cream colored head and heavy lacing. This moderately thick beer has a full taste that is smooth and mildly sweet. This beer has a gentle hint of orange as it first enters the mouth then the flavors of wheat, yeast, and caramel proceed to entice the palate. A mild biscuit flavor can be detected right before this beer fades smoothly away to leave a nice caramel taste lingering in the throat.

thebeertourist (5005) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2006
Deep copper-coloured with a huge, off-white head, leaving lacing. Wonderfully strong, sweet caramel and fruity aroma. Some liquorice. Flavour start sweet with lots of caramel and caramel, but is balanced towards the middle by good, spicy (and somewhat earthy) hop bitterness. Dry and long, earthy finish. It is wonderful as a young beer (and has it become even more complex lately?), but gets irresistable after 5 years careful aging. The rating is for the young beer.
