I had this in the traditional glass, an excellent beer with a velvet like mouthfeel and sweetish malty fruit notes. Very enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured mahagony in color with a huge, tan 5-finger head and floating particles. Aromas of candy sugars, roasted/caramel malts and yeasty bread. Malty tasting, sweet, slight alcohol (but not 8%), sugars, light spices, and a little sour to balance the sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky reddish brown; lots of yeast floaties in there. Little head, some lace. Aroma is yeasty and bread-like directly after pour, then very sweet, vinous, and fruity. Great malty flavor and some sort of weird twang also, with fruits. It has some sort of "kick" to it, but I donít taste alcohol. A nice hop flavor too. To me, it feels oily and thin in the mouth.

so so many floaters in this brew. Too much, Iíd say. Incredibly yeasty. Belgian in smell and taste.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 The glass alone is worth a taste. Looks cool at Belgo when 4+ people all have one. Light, inoffensive toffee flavoured easy drinking intro to Belgian beers.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
light brown with a thin tan head which was gone quickly. A fruity/malty aroma some floral hops too. Flavor was sweet and malty not much of a hop bite, hops where all floral.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown with some orange tint. No head at all. Banana aroma combines with lots of malt. Too much carbonation and malt. It finishes with a nice floral taste. Too bad you have to go through the rest to get to the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber, decent sized white head for 8% ABV, nice fine lacing. Sweetness and fruit in the aroma. Very sweet, with a nicely done alcohol finish.

Pours clear darker copper with a medium off white head. Good retention. Interesting aroma, mainly sweet malt (toffee) but theres another fruity aroma dominant too. Brilliant smooth full body. Lovely sweet malt flavours, along with a bit of alcohol too. Spice and apple there too. Very interesting beer.
