COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

bhensonb (12130) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
750 ml bottle, corked and caged, from South Bay Drugs. Hazy orange tinged golden color with an ephemeral white head. Smells like a tripel on brett with cardamom. And a bit of candi. Medium bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. It is more bitter than sweet - like bergamot. Extremely pleasant. Lightly earthy. Definitely dry. Moderately spicey. Ends up like bitter light stone fruit. Not strongly bitter. A really quaffable ale. Great taste.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2008
From a 750mL Bottle. Mostly transparent, honey gold colored pour with a firm finger of small bubbled white foam. Perfumey yeast esters in the nose, bringing out suggestions of rose petals, banana, and pear. Light herbal hop characters also noticeable, along with an underlying sweet orange citrusy note. A subtle, sugary pale malt sweetness also lies in the background. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a smooth, soft texture. Clean flavors of bready pilsner malt and honey up front on the palate, followed by some floral yeast esters and banana. Toward the finish, some herbal hop flavors start to come out, as well as a mild peppery yeast character that lingers behind on the palate. This particular bottle has a higher carbonation level than others I’ve opened, but still is less than I’d like it to be. The creaminess of the palate works well with the banana notes, but my personal preference would be to have it drier with a more carbonic bite to help accentuate the pepper. Still, a pretty solid beer overall with a wonderful yeast presence.

Ibrew2or3 (7358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Pours deep slightly hazy gold with white head. The mild aroma is sweet sugary malts, grain like malts, a bit of hay, bitter sourness and more malt sweetness. The taste begins sweet with sugar malt sweetness, crisp grains and hops to go along with a growing tartness. The tartness becomes mildly sour fruit and grows to midway and carries right into the finish. Smooth brew that begins sweet and malty then has that palate refreshing tartness into the finish

mmmbeer (1290) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2008
(From 8-3-08 sampling, thanks to midaszero!) Murky peach in color, decent white head that laced, light carbonation. Aroma of grass, wheat, bananas, figs, and coriander. Hits the mouth with a high-light body, malt was intertwined with various spices, sweet and sour sensations towards the backend, finish has a champagne like quality to it. Heavily enjoyed this one!!!

marcus (7293) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Bhensonb shared this with me. This hazy orange beer poured with a miniscule head that disappeared right away. There is an herbal aroma that Bill and I thought was from cardomom, and it was also evident in the flavor. This is a tasty beer that benefits from a good blend of malt, hops and herbs.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Sampled side by side with Duvel. Pours a clear, rusty orange color with a large, foamy, off-white head. Soapy lacing marks the glass with random spots and flares. The aroma is sweet up front, pale malts dominating, with an omnipresent bready yeast that is very Belgianesque. There is a mild funk, along with notes of peppery spice. Flavors follow the same path. Sweet pale malts and doughy yeast show a dusty Belgian funk, while floral, peppery spices lend a crisp bite, evening things out. Medium-plus bodied with lively carbonation, it drinks surprisingly well for such a large brew, the semi-dry finish lending a somewhat refreshing quality. Overall, this is a very nice take on a Belgian classic, and, dare I say, an improvement.

Bottle shared by midaszero. Thanks man!
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice white head. Smell is sweet and malty with a definite belgian yeasty quality. Dusty, with a hint of tartness and very faint funk but is mostly sweet and a bit fizzy. Decent, and a nice take on Duvel as I understand it, but not one of my favorites as it is a bit sweet for my liking.

m4rest88 (387) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Pours an amber/orange color with a thin white, creamy and frothy head. The beer has the aroma of citrus, sweet malt, and a lot of yeast with a bit of a fizzy-like carbonation. It has a medium body with a somewhat syrupy/oily - more on the oily side texture with light carbonation on the palate. The taste starts off moderately sweet and the finish a bit bitter with a little bit of alcohol. Good Belgium strong! definitely going to look for this one again in the future!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Bottle at Ritual Tavern. My notes and memory are hazy, like the amber orange pour. Nice lemon and perfumy aroma. Flavor of citrus, honey, wheat malt, and spice. Nice amount of residual sweetness.

Pours a cloudy orangey blonde color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of hops, honey and flowers. Good flavor of honey, flowers and hops, there’s some sweetness too and some bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation.
