2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Cheeky Monk in Denver. Pours golden orange with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is of yeast, wheat, citrus, some dark fruit, and barn floor. Taste has the Belgian yeast that is expected, as well as wheat, slight citrus, and some dark fruit, Has a very dry malt taste, along with some barn floor qualities. Moderate carbonation make this easy to drink. A decent beer that suffers from a lack of carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cerveza estilo Belgian Strong Ale. Aroma intenso a granos, destacando principalmente a cebada,
Espuma abundante desde el momento de la tirada, la cual desaparece lentamente. Su color es dorado, sin embargo es una cerveza bastante turbia.
Al primer trago destaca su alta carbonatación, sin embargo, conforme el liquido avanza hacia la garganta, la frescura de la cerveza, así como su alto alcohol, y su fuerte sabor a lata, la hace ser una excelente cerveza strong Ale.

The first time I had this beer, the bartender from a Belgian beer bar brought a bottle over to a crazy house party in San Francisco I was at. He looked like the devil and the beer was fantastic.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml, corked and caged bottled poured into Tripel Karmeliet goblet. Appearance is golden yellow with 2 inch, white head that dissipates quickly and doesn’t leave behind much in the way of lacing. Smells of dried fruit, banana, and lemon with a hint of clove. Taste is fruity Belgian yeast with a hint of lemon and spice. Medium carbonation with a crisp mouth feel. Overall, this Belgian lacks complexity and depth of flavor. It’s almost a bit watered down and is certainly nothing memorable. This beer does not live up to its name.
