A special Belgian amber ale with a robust complexity of flavors. Fruit flavors like plum and cherry which are imparted from a special Belgian yeast mix, with a wide range of malt flavors.

Fruity, yeasty, doughlike aroma with plenty of alcohol apparent. Clear, deep golden body is topped with a low, white head that recedes to ring. Strong, berry-like fruitiness with bubblegum esters also apparent and plenty of alcohol in the flavour. Medium body feels a bit thin, with lively carbonation and strong alcohol warming. Sampled at GABF 2005.

tap at brewpub. Served in a large wine goblet with a very long stem. The glass seems too delicate for this beer, but the beer does look good in the bowl. Appears brown & hazy...looks bronzen upon further inspection...head is off-white, dying, but stickinga bit to the glass...Aroma says "westmalle" yeast to me...figgy & chocolate aroma with some phenolic spice...also some element of honey...drinks sweet, w/ raisin and yeast...alcohol warming at the end. Lush beer. A real treat to find a local brewed Belgian-style while in HI, and its well-done at that...some banana comes through as it warms.

Rastacouere (6153) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2005
Creamy and frothy sheet of foam over a medium brown pour. Cookie laden maltiness is victim to lots of sweetening candi sugar. Leafy and minty hops contribute more spiciness than balancing dryness, while the phenolic, medicinal yeast prefers to add fruitiness to the mix (pear, mango) rather than having any hard work (attenuation) done. Oaky, bubble gummy liquorous medium body. Quite slick and very sweet, if not cloying, yet managing to propose a considerable bitterness despite the low aromatics. Weirdly balanced.

Pour is light golden amber with thin off white head...smell is sweet with anise, yeast, molasses, brown sugar...taste is overly sweet and watery...sticky cloying finish...
