Light spice and cake aroma which carries right over into the flavor. The flavors blended well with the ABV making for a great dessert beer. Very good.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2005
750ml. Young bottle, BB date 03/2008. Pours traffic light amber with the merest haze. Rocky two-finger head composed of small and large bubbles; bigger head on subsequent pours. Clumpy, three dimensional lace. Spicy nose with cantaloupe and pistachios, banana daquiri, white rum, ripe pears, diesel. Flavor is initially sweet and alcoholic, then minty, yeasty, grainy, and woody. Traces of chamomille and chocolate. Light, fizzy palate. Dry finish with an aftertaste that is leafy and bitter, alcohol and apple cider. Although complex, with warming the beer tastes more and more like a hefeweizen spiked with moonshine. Unlike many ratings below, I found that alcohol was the dominant characteristic.

lille (11) - BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2005
Bière blonde d’orée avec grande tête pelucheuse et vivante. Arome au goût âpre de fruit avec des accents de levure, quelques épices et pommes. Le goût est rond et animé avec un accent de céréale, un contact de gâteau aux pommes, la banane mûre, un léger dose de sucre et un goût de houblon.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Bottle. Pours golden with rocky white head. Somewhat spiced and malty aroma, and maybe some hints of sweet fruits. Had more a yeasty flavor, but seemed kind of thin in body. Really dry finish.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2005
Nice golden blond beer with big fluffy head and good livelyness. Fruit tart aroma with hints of yeast, some pices and apple. The taste is round and lively with good cereal accent, a touch of apple cake, ripe banana, a slight dosis of candy sugar and a well integrated hoppy accent. taste is turnig dry in the end.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2005
750 ml bottle. Cloudy orange with a gigantic head. Aroma of apple, spice, candi sugars and citrus. Body is amazingly smooth and the alcohol is masked really well. Taste is dry with some faint banana as well.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2005 A Mes rate: Standard looks. Candy floss, apples and typical Belgian ale in the nose. Very ale type flavour but a touch more rich and sweet as you would expect. Slight spicy with some marmalade on toast in there too. The alcohol comes through a little but is generally hidden quite well. Little bit too much carb for my liking but whatever. Long finish which is almost wine like. A decent strong triple. Imagine part way between a quadrupel and a tripel and you get the idea.
