Corruption, Greed, and Lust. They’re all represented on the hooks of today. Tomorrow, they’ll be stinging Gluttony, Desire, and Sloth. Go ahead. Tell yourself you’re better than all of them. But you can’t. Hell can be funny like that. Down here it’s all just sin. Everyone here is screwed just like you. They don’t care who you sliced, diced, or cheated. No on is escaping this heinous place. Your roommate is an ax murderer. Eerily, he’s not threatening. How can he be? Here, the Fallen Angel owns your body, mind and soul. As such, no one can take your life. It’s already been taken. Or was it given? Neither matters. Did you seriously think you were living a virtuous life. At least Satan serves beer in Hell. He brews it himself right there in that flame stoked cauldron. Rumor has it the beer is straw yellow, bone dry and simply labeled Inferno.

puboflyons (3024) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 12, 2015
From the corked, caged 750 ml bottle. No date on the bottle. I have had it about two months. Hazy pale yellow pour with a tremendous fluffy white head. Too heady. The aroma has a great array of Belgian yeast, Belgian sugar, toasted biscuit, a little spice, and a berry-like fruitiness. Medium body. The taste has many of the same taste esters but it ends very dry.

ClarkVV (5579) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2015
750mL bottled 9/2013, drunk 2/2015.
Oddly enough, the cork shot off as soon as the cage was loosened, but then the beer didn’t gush. Still resulted in a massive, thick, foamy white head that was slow to dissipate. Light blond/golden body is full of tight bubbles coarsing upwards.
Massively fruity esters in the nose (yellow fruits, strawberries, kiwi, pineapple....) give way to a bit of herbal hoppiness and a light dusting of white pepper and dry alcohol notes. A touch of bread-like maltiness can be discerned, but mostly this thing is just full-on fruity esters. Having had this a long time ago, probably closer to 2006 or so, I remember the nose being significantly less estery and much more herbal/peppery. I’m fairly certain this bottle sat warm/hot for too long, as there is dried beer below the cork where it has escaped obviously due to a strong refermentation. Fortunately, tons of esterification is the only downside of this and the beer still seems in good shape.
The flavor profile again speaks to the heavy fruitiness, with some definite alcohol undertones. Body is medium, sweetness is low and it reminds me a lot of Allagash Tripel. Very drinkable, quenching dryness and even some herbal/grassy hops thrown in for good measure. A delicious Belgian ale that seems much more Belgian than it does American. So that is nice.

kespecial (212) - - JAN 29, 2015
A terrific Duvel-style ale. Pours super lively from the bottle, hazy yellow with beautiful huge white head. After it settled a bit, offers big aromas of Belgian yeast, lemon and grass. Flavor is great, with sweet banana, honey, some citrus rind complexity and a zesty dry finish. Lovely.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2015 75cl bottle served in a Prearis glass (identical in style to a Lost Abbey glass). Pours a clear straw colour with a massively creamy, billowing white head which lasts and lasts. Aroma is sourdough, Belgian yeasty esters and other wonderful ingredients. Taste is fantastic level of complexity for such a style. Banana and walnut bread giving way to a slightly refreshing dryness via the sweetness of cake. The best example of a Belgian golden ale I have experienced and close to perfect for they style.
