Copper brown, foaming light beige thick head, slighlty lace. Yeast in nose at the start of the glass, but at finish also flowery and malty aromas. Sweet, yeasty, spicy aromatic, some alcohol, a bit sour, dry and mild hop aroma. Aftertaste is dry & sweet, a bit yeast-like and quite long.

Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Amber color. I found this to be a very smooth Belgian with a sweet and clean flavor. The flavor is definitely better than the name.

A champaigne of a beer - bubbly, tart, spicy - a little black pepper. Not the most complex, but a good social, pass it around the dinner table, kind of brew.

decants radiant amber, clear, tho the head was broken beyond repair. initial strong impression of house paint in the aroma fortunately diminished, with a cinnamon raisin toast, ripe yeasty smell taking itís place--plus enough mezzzzmorizing alcohol vapors to guarantee that youíre in adult territory. the flavor is gorgeous, and like the last chapters of a great novel, iím lamenting the incipient end of this beer-- itís already like a friend. itís sweet certainly with the added confectionerís sugar, but not overdone. on the contrary, it works with the peachy, spicy caramel, flowery honeysuckle flavor. adequate hop element is content to play a supporting role. oh, damn, now hereís the last sip. adieu gentle sweet beer, i knew ye so briefly; but iíll not soon forget.

Remarkably unimpressive in my opinion. Sweet, caramel, not as many flavors as i expected and definitely not one of my most memorable belgians.

Very ubtle tastes maybe honey, carmel and fruit flavor. The alcohol is well hidden with a 8%abv. Recommended.

I think I expected more. It was good and all but it didnít have any kick what so ever.
