UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Very nice. Lots of carmel and vanilla tones. Medium bodied, good creamy offering, with clean brussels lace.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2003
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.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 13, 2003
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.

legion242 (2303) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2003
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.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2003
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!

Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2003
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.

fraternie (857) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2003
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.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2003
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.
