3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I admit, I wanted this for the gimmicky glass it came in, but I still donít know the reason/origin of the glass and base. This was rather mild for a strong ale. The Belgian yeast was there in full force - especially pungent in banana and currant. My main qualm with this was the aluminum/brassy mouthfeel and finish. It was rather distracting and definitely affected the lasting impression. I want one of those glasses though.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fruity and malty aroma
Dark herry wood, head like whipped cream, a bit gunk floating around.
A bit fruit and sweet sherry, but all in all disappointing.

Amber, huge head on mine (not a great pour on my part) that eventually settled. Noticable alcoholy, bit of sediment in the bottle (may have been my bad pour again) Dry finish. Worth trying. The glass is cool, the beer average.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2004 I donít think this was bottle conditioned, althought It certainly could have done with that. Goes down pretty easy but the alcohol was pretty noticable. Good, but not up there with other Belgians. I think I may buy this again, considering that there is a boxset with that interesting glass avaliable in a local supermarket.

Pours a translucent amber with a full whipped head. The yeast they used is very low flocculating. Aromas of buiscuit malt and some, but little candi sugar. Flavor is sweet but the palate is thin. No hops whatsoever. Very one-dimensional. Alcohol is well hidden.

Pours a crystal-clear amber with a quickly diminishing white head that fades completely. Fruity and malty. so so. Nothing special really. Mild yeasty notes apparent too.

Bottle. Aroma of caramel malts and apples. Pours cloudy, full of sediments. Color is a deep orange-amber with a patchy white head. Very, very sweet caramel taste. Some alcohol in the finish. Palate is smooth but some cloying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A beatiful amber colour with a lasting head. The aroma is dominated by caramel notes, a bit nutty. The taste is not that strong. A bit watery. Hints of fruits and wood but very simple beer.
