Cork, sour apricot and cocoa in the nose. Little clouds of particulates in a fairly clear, amber body with decent tan head that recedes to cover. Apricot, lemon, peach, some earthy, musty, woody cobwebs in the flavour to balance the overall candy sweetness. Fairly strong effervescence with medium body that finished quite dry and well-attenuated, but little clouds of protein/yeast are distracting if not quite disconcerting. Bottle (Bieropholie - Jun. 2004).

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2005
Aroma is belgian yeast, spices. Pours a dark copper, nice head and lacing. Fruity, slight caramel, alcohol finish with some hops. Fairly dry. Par for the course Belgian.

Decently balanced, dry yet sweet, spice and malt dominated flavor. It’s good, I’d drink it again.

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2005
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.
