3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orangish with a decent white head. Spicy aroma. Tastes very malty, with a finishing burst of sweet-and-sour sauce, tartness, and hints of spice, fruit, and cloves. Not a favorite of mine, but very well made.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2004 Served in the most interesting wooden test-tube glass (apparently authentic to the brand). The color is a ruddy brown, with a decent carbonation. Scent of banana. The taste was really clean with a mild spiciness, making room room for a clean (yet short) "bite-free" finish. A litlle dry.

reddish copper color, medium tan head that thins quickly. moderate lacing. sweet and hoppy notes, light candi and graham cracker. snappy carbonation, mild sweet malt, gentle hop/alcohol aftertaste. I can see why people love/hate this. Has my love vote.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a nectar like - dark orange color with a thin, white head with decent lacing. Specks of sediment float around to top it off. Pleasant, zesty, spicy aroma with elements of molasses, dates and rum-soaked fruitcake. Enticing flavor, little bit of maple syrup, alcohol, dates,and raisins. Very smooth palate - coats the tongue. Very drinkable strong Belgian Ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 An old favorite that has fallen some in my esteem. I come back to this beer now and then as a change of pace but something has kept it from being a regular for me. +++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy light caramel color with a small foamy light tan head that quickly faded and left no lacing. The aroma was cola, peach, pear and hints of caramel and bread. The flavor was toffee, peach, pear, cola and a hint of sourdough bread. Medium length finish of toffee, fruit and cola. Medium body. Solid but not outstanding.

A good amber belgian. Sweet in flavor, reminded of plums. A pleasant head on the top, and although the beer was cloudy, it was definitely pleasant.
