COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Clear light amber with a white head. Nice fruity spicy yeasty candi sugar aromas. Medium body. Good candi sugar, earthy sweet malt flavors with some banana, clove and cinnamon in a warm finish. Reminiscent of their original Belgian style ale from days of yor, very good.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a white head. Very present etoh latent bubblegum banana type esters. Sweet with candi sugars and some lighter spices subdued by sheer sweetness. EH.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle. Poured with a nice orange-golden hue, shiny and still, yet with a formidable foam head. The aroma is of banana creme, expectant of a creamy delight. Although it’s not quite dessert-worthy, the beer still delivers -- tight with sharp yeasty goodness, a hint of spice, and a tickle of tropical fruit. (#3645, 8/19/2009)

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle: Poured a golden color with a light white head. The nose is fruity but very lacking in the ester department. Some predominant sweet herbal notes along with some sweet fruity front of the tongue notes upon first tasting. The body is light and snappy but the flavor still feels a bit medieval. Thick and sweet, more herbal, hops are showing, but still uneven vs the nose. Good tripel, but I was hopping for more carbonation and a little thinner in the body.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Tap at KC Flying Saucer. A clear and dark amber to nearly copper colored body. The nose was sweet malt funk with some hints of caramel and toasted nuts. The taste is bitter toast with green tea and some pecan notes. There is some bread crust. A little thin for the style, I found this to be slightly better because it wasn’t overly sweet, but the strange earthy tea notes threw off the package for me.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of Belgian yeast, marzipan, burnt sugar, slight vanilla, slight malts, and spices. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of slight alcohol, spices, burnt sugar, and Belgian yeast. Light to medium body. Oily lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Burnt sugar, Belgian yeast, and slight spice finish is slightly sticky and lightly dry.

decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Golden/orange pour with white head. Aroma of orange zest, light abv. Flavor is brown sugar, resiny hoppiness like bitter, a citrus zest, and a nice abv warmth. A light medium body with no off flavors and a crisp clean flavor. A big beer with the deceptive air of drinkabiltiy. A creeper for sure. Nice carbonation

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
This beer was a very pleasant surprise and strikes me as being rather severely underrated on this site. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a large orange-cream head. The aroma was strong candied fruit, sugar and yeastiness with just a touch of alcohol showing through. The flavor was strongly sugar with candied fruits - apple, pineapple and pear predominantly and a moderate yeasty undertone with faint hints of pepper. The finish was long, fruity and yeasty. The mouthfeel was thick and full. A touch of alcohol shows through on the finish. Excellent.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
Golden amber with minimal head that still provides lacing. Big nose of alcohol, yeast and butter caramel. Flavour is alcohol, flowery yeast and dusty musty fruit flavour.
