Pours very nicely into a Westmalle glass. Has a nice thin head that disapates quickly. Is a nice dark brown color. Aroma is excellent. Beer is very smooth with a sweet aftertaste. Flavor is excellent with lots of hops and a little malt.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 bottle: pours a carmaly orange colour with very large fluffy white head. smells of sweet malts, and sour apples quite different than anything else i have smelled. very dry palate taste of apples and no sweetness at all a quick bitter finish of earthy hops. very interesting and very good.
fresh bottle has a wonderful hop aroma that is very floral and slight citrus, just about perfect withthe sligth sweet malt that is windingthrough the hops, the slightest touch of yeast and faint brett just complete the aroma.

Served in a trappist chalice, this beer poured out wonderfully - with a head that rose to the top of the glass. The initial taste is bitter and dry - it becomes a bit sweeter as it fades, but it fades a bit too quickly. Maybe itís just the weather and I need stronger that lingers in the mouth a lot longer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Amber with a sweet orange aroma. Medium hops front & middle with a lite finish. Good balance between hops and fruit, which makes it full-bodied and smooth.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First dry belgian ale that I have ever tried, and I have mixed feelings about this beer. It lacks the body I was hoping for. I love the color. A dark orange, almost tan color. This beer has a medium body to it, not too thick and not too thin. The taste does not remind me so much of a fruit experience, but I love the taste. Goes down nice, and the beer bubbles on my tongue. I wouldnít say that this beer is creamy, but still nice. This is a nice bitter/sour beer, full of flavor, with a prolonged finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a dark, murky brownish-orange. Medium to large off white head. Aroma was very strong; sweet and vinous. Plum, yeast, spice and apple. Very dry; medium body. Flavor is somewhat distinct, but flavor wasnít amazing for me. Flavor of apple, yeast, some herbal and spice elements. Some hops in the ending, but not too pronounced.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2007 Hazy orange appearance. Very sweet vinouse porty aroma with notes of dark sweet fruits like plums, figs and raisin. Very smooth silky palate with notes of alchohol. Warm finish and some bitterness in there as well

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice melon nose, and quite nice amber color. The flavor is hoppy and fairly balanced, with an aftertaste thatís not absurdly bitter. I like this beer, but itís not a favorite of mine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Poured a beautiful amber/orange with a bumpy white head. Mostly vinous and oak aroma, with sour green grape and musty hay. Flavor was woody and bitter, very dry, with a green apple underpinning. Kind of a musty old wood flavor overall. Not sure if this is how itís supposed to taste (I got my bottle at the Korean Deli for $5 [somewhat cheap actually]), but if so, I really donít like it all that much.
