3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue. Lots of creamy off-white head that lasts. Aroma of grain, orange peel, grass, spices and underlying alcohol. As it starts to warm a lot of funky notes start emerging. Ctirus, bitter hops, mild sweetness and definite warm booze, not a weak one. A great use of hops in this Belgian; good bitterness, but not overwhelming. Iíll never get bored with this beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle shared with ebone1988 for this stupid book. God damnit. The pour is a coppery gold color, crystal clear, with a pillowy white head that falls leaving some decent lace. The aroma is interesting itís really bready and malty with a slight tropical fruit and a light slice to it. Itís an interesting blend. I like the bread, yet dislike the spices. The flavor is more malt based. There is a definite lack of spice, which I like. The bready malts are nice, and the bubblegum makes for an interesting blend. The tropical fruitiness is there with a strong caramel makes this a lot better than I thought it would be. The mouth feel is thin and light with a brighter carbonation and a very dry, malty finish. Itís an interesting brew, but not awful.

Bottle - Slightly hazy golden colour, medium, slowly melting but persistent white head. Nice belgian yeasty and fruity aromas with lots of apple, plum and bread. Well balanced sweetness with some tutti frutti, honey, greem apples, pear and bread, some herbal hops. Full body, medium carbonation, silky mouthfeel and sweet fruity and doughy finish. Nice belgian strong ale, but not a World class one.
