Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience.

I think itís just a very tasty and easy going beer. Itís sweet, but also has a sour yeastiness to it giving it more balance and complexity. Together with a very mild bitter finish with fruits and malts itís just a very refreshing and easy to drink beer. Comes with a very special glass when ordered in the bar/pub.

Sweet and malty, thick, very lightly perfume-like. When I got down to the yeasty goodness, I was really interestingly pleased with the flavor. Good big ass beer to drink while watching Kevin Smith Strikes Back!

Belgian beer festival Brussels 2006: How many happy people did I see slurping this beer from the special glass? Really nice sweet honey malt with champagne bubbles... I remember listening to the band, chatting with nice people and having this nice beer!

Opened the bottle, and out came sludge. They basically bottled a yeast cake and sold it to me for $5. Talk about manufacturing errors. Smelled good, but I couldnít try it like that. Maybe Iíll try it again sometime, if I feel like risking another $5.

I made a bit of an interesting call here as I don't have the glass so I used a hefeweizen glass as it is closest in shape. I don't think it caused any problems hehehe. Nice dark orange color but a lot of yeast chunks in suspension. Aroma is curiously similar to Scotch Silly. Possibly a touch dryer through hops but if you know one you kow the other (I do love this type of deep malt and caramel smell though so it's a "Good Thing"). The palate is nice and thick and smooth however it has a lightness which other thick palate beers (Chimay blue, Tripel Karmeliet and Silly Scotch leap to mind) could learn from. The flavor also is thick malts and caramel with aftertones of hops which save it from being cloying. I do enjoy this one.

The aroma has a lot of banana and cloves. The appearance is thick and dark. The banana flavor continues in the taste. There is a light malty backbone.

I will have to rerate this because the brew accidentally got partially frozen and I donít want to rate a bad sample.
