3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pretty nice amber-colored belgian ale with fruity and caramelly notes and a good hoppy finish. For what it costs though, I probably won’t ever drink it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Powerful beer. Strong, thick nose with candied sugar notes. Backed up in the mouth with more thickness, high powered toffee and a touch of spice. A little burn in the finish unbalanced the beer a bit but still a nice drop.

bottle reads "best before 1/1/2007.so the kwak poured ice tea like in color with loads of bubbles and little "floaties".i got the usual big white belgian head.as is left the glass i recieved some nice lacing.i gathered citurs,and caramel in the aroma.the flavor had a mix up of grapefruit,belgian yeast,candy,and caramel.mouthfeel was a bit acidic and on the medium side.this is one of those beers that needs to sit in te trappist glass for a bit to calm the acid/carbonation down a bit.overall this is a nice belgian brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad. Has a bit of butterscotch and yeast in the nose. Pours out to a cloudy amber-gold color with finely beaded white head. Starts out with some toffee-like malty sweetness and ends with a light alcohol sensation. A few light fruit and spice notes, but nothing strong.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2011 it’s a good Belgian product, but somehow, I just don’t care. I’ve rated it better than some things I definitely prefer, but It just tastes rather generic to me. Too well blended.
It’s a darker brown than I recall, with a grassy heineken-esque hop scheme.
