Dark orange in color, it has a fruity and spicy flavor. It is very malty and has a bit of a bitter taste. You do not feel the alcohol % at first but drink it at room temperature you will feel it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy yellow colour with an average white head. Some carbonation. Rather yeasty malty aroma, spicy and fruity. Full body somewhat creamy. Finish is bitter, with an alcoholic touch and a dry ending. This is not one of my favourits.

High frothy, creamy head on a dark gold body. Strong aroma with fruity hints, very malty. Strong and sufficiently itter. A very good brew for those who like strong beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange body with a medium white creamy head and soft lacing. The aroma is strong of apple yeastiness, dough, and liberal spiciness. The flavour is extremely doughy and yeasty with some notes of sweet fruit and then leaving some sharp tartness. Very spicy and warm in the finish. Deceptively easy to drink with layers of complexity. The alcohol only shows up as it warms up. Very good.
Sampled at Le Zageman, Brussels on May 9, 2006.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ML bottle: Medium gold w/a lasting white head. Aroma at first is very corkish. Beyond that, grainy malt, floral, and spicy, peppery yeast. Very delicate plummy and dried apricot esters. Still has a decently strong wood cork aroma as it warms, but it’s not over powering. Well balanced flavor. Spicy peppery yeast, grainy malt, floral esters from alcohol, and a very light plum fruitiness. Finish is semi dry with a pleasant earthy hop aftertaste that lingers with the grainy malt. Lighter body, probably due to the very high level of carbonation. Very explosive m/f, smooth, and well hidden alcohol. A good beer, but a bit lacking in complexity for a 10% ABV beer. The hop flavors sort of take over the aftertaste and become a bit herbal and grassy, and I prefer fruity and malty. A good beer for me, but not a great one on my personal palate.

This golden ale poured with a fluffy white head, eliciting a flowery aroma. The flavor is hoppy but slightly flat with a very bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not too shabby but nothing super special at the same time. Typical golden/strong. The alcohol notes are very prevalent. The lacing and carbonation are exquisite. Had this at the 12 Hour Belgian Beer Party and then a couple weeks later at O’Brien’s. I liked it better at the festival... probably because I was pretty pasted when I had it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Bottle, 75cl corked. (RBNAG 07) This time as Millennium 2000. Clear pour, except for some floaties, golden to straw color, with a huge, white head on top. Sweet and slighlty grainy aroma with a little alcohol. Malty (wheat?) flavor with a balancing fruityness, as well as alcohol. Quite effervescent and warming in the mouth. Nice, but the Malheur beers somehow fails to be as good as expected. Rating: 6-4-7-4-15-3.6. I’m leaving the old rating valid.
Bottled, 0.75ltr. Lightly hazy and golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is mostly hops and alcohol with some yeastiness. Flavor has maltyness and sugar too. Full body and a mellow bitter finish. (060328)
