4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2003 Re-rate: It has been a while since I had this, and I am still impressed! Lovely appearance, medium reddish copper color. Nice, fruity-bready aroma. Flavor is remarkably smooth and refreshing. Slightly tart, fruity, well balanced malts and spice. Could become a regular with me now.

Carmel colored with a sweet and hoppy aroma, it's got a tangy, fruity, hoppy, happy flavor to it. It's not a 'Great Beer' but it's enjoyable.

I was dissapointed in this beer. I went into in with high hopes due to the great experieince with the brewers Ommegang beer. This beer was dissapointing.

Pours a cloudy amber, with lively carbonation and a cream-colored head. Fruit and spicy yeast aroma. Flavor is first and foremost dry, with vinous and fruity characteristics, spiciness, and a bit of apple cider. Tasty.

This was so incredibly tastey. Beautifully reddish - amber coloring with a nice frothy head, that stayed with it the entire session. Zesty and complex, with hints of pear and grapefruit with banana and fig thrown in for good measure. I loved this one, nicely bittersweet in the finish and I cannot wait to try it again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slight orange haze with fierce rocky white head and excellent lacing. Large bubbles ascend from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is sweet and spicy, banana, clove, alcohol. Musky taste with strong alcohol and fruity, pear I think. Acidic on the palate but I believe a little maturing could balance this out. Also a tad salty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Reddish gold with a largish white head. Slightly sweet, slightly musty aroma. Mouthful is nice. Flavor is malty and slightly sweet. Not overly complex. A decent beer, but it followed a Rochefort Trappistes 10 in the session, which is almost not fair.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light brown color with thick, creamy, whitish head. Aroma was spicy and yeasty. For flavor, initially I noticed a fruity sour apple flavor followed by a spicy doughy flavor. By the end of the drink I noticed a beautiful thick lacing left on the glass. Not bad at all.
