4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delicious, Served in a black 25 oz bottle. This belgian brew pours a dark amber, the head is a thin lace of tan that sticks to the glass. The smell is orange peels, vanilla, and honey. As I let this beer warm up a little from the fridge more flavors and aromas began to come out. The taste of this beer is smoothe and creamy. It tastes of honey, fruit (banana and grapes), it is sweet but not overwhelming. I definatly recommend this beer. It would pair well with a grilled steak to contrast some of the fruity flavors, as well as a bananas foster to help bring out some of the banana and caramel flavors in the beer.

Creamy-beige head that dissappears quickly but leaves a good lacing. Sweet aroma with caramel, yeast and bread touches. Dark orange and sparkling color and a medium body. The alcohol presence is very smooth

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Just horrible. Maybe I had a bad bottle but this stuff was horrible. Pours a nice ruby color with white fluffy head. Smell is of dark fruit and malt. Taste is fig, apple, and red grape. Very vinous. The worst part is it had TONS of yeast chunks. No matter how slow you poured you could feel the yeast chunks as if it were pulp in orange juice. Just disgusting.

Hazy brownish copper color. large foamy off white head. lots of yeast floating in bottle. aromas of alcohol, grapes, dark fruit, malt, and yeast. dark fruit, grape, some spices, caramel, and alcohol in flavor. a bit too alcoholic for a complex belgian but still enjoyable.

Orange-brown with a big creamy head. Fantastic aromas of chocolaate milk and caramelized bananas. Big flavours of caramel, brown sugar, with a rummy quality. Well-rounded, full-bodied palate. Alcohol is present but not harsh. Excellent.
