3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wonderfully spicy, peachy, apricotty aroma eminating from the copper colored beer with a small, white head. Aroma is deceptive, as the flavor is muddled malt, some fruitiness and a clean finish. Average mouthfeel.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
It's surprisingly intense, with a fruity and zesty palate which finishes quickly leaving you wanting more. And yes, definately drink it in the special glass.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Brown/orange color; head was minimal. Very soft mouthfeel- bottle most likely flat. There is no way they designed this beer to be like this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Yeast and citrus aroma, deep amber, medium vanilla head. Apple/pear, malt flavours some raisins too. Full bodied, dry finish, very nice tongue tingle. Quite good!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 An amber beer with a great head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and yeast as well as nuts. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, nuts, fruits, and plums, leading to a sweet smooth caramel end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extremely sweet aroma, some spice and smoke present as well. Sugary/toffee malt, hints of nutmeg. Thin malt, seems a bit watered down for the style. Smooth, but little to no hop character. Notes of cinnamon. A nicely flavored, smooth Belgian, but not incredibly complex.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured a copper amber color and formed a nice bubbly white head. A good amount of tiny bubble carbonation is present. An aroma of malt and cinnamon. A flavor of malt and caramel, with a decent amount of sweetness to a medium body. Slightly astrigent finish.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fruity and malty aroma
Dark herry wood, head like whipped cream, a bit gunk floating around.
A bit fruit and sweet sherry, but all in all disappointing.
