reggiedunlop (3107) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thick off white head. Aroma has some fruit and muddled spice...a bit of leather and a musty note. Flavor follows suit...muddled spice overrides the fruitiness and dries it out...hints of leather and a minerally note. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is dry muddled/spicy and fruity.

60minuteman (787) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Clear reddish amber. No head. Minimal lace. Smell of wheat, dark fruit, malt, molasses and some hop. Taste is hop, malt, dark fruit, molasses and yeast. Good balance with the strong alcohol and medium body make for a great mouthfeel and taste in the belgian strong.

dagimp (725) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark golden, very cool! About an inch of head which sticks around a while leaving some lacing. It’s spot on for a Grand Cru, yeast, bread, slight orange/citrus tastes predominate. I have to say, it was a little thick and sweet for me. It could have been lighter in body and a tad bit dryer and it would have been out of the ball park. That being said, I really like this style and RB KOP really made a good one! Keep up the good work guys!

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Pours a cloudy darker amber color with a thin wisp of an off white head. Aroma of light apples, pear, some yeast and a touch of some alcoholic notes. Taste is smooth with fruity notes, namely pear and sweet apple, slight notes of some caramel sneak in there and a little bit of some yeast notes, slightly alcoholic finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Draught at King of Prussia BrewPub (at 7.2%ABV): Aroma of Belgian yeast, light spices, candi sugar, and light coriander. Pours amber/light brown in color with a large, rocky, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of Belgian yeast, spices, light candi sugar, and slight coriander. Medium body. Slightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Belgian yeast and slight spice finish. Served way TOO COLD.

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2006
On tap at the KOP PA Rock Bottom location. Pours a cloudy golden orange with an average off white lacing head. Aroma of banana, pears, citrus, Belgian spices and yeast. Flavors of the same.

DocLock (7909) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Draft at KOP location. The pour was hazy dark straw colored, with some fruity aromas, such as pear, melon, and some hopcitrus. The flavor was malty and on the fruity sweet side up front, with notes of pear, melon, orange, berry, and some chardonnay palate feel. It tasted almost like a fruitier version of a maibock. Not bad, but not great, and I didn’t find this one growler-worthy.

On tap at the Rock Bottom in KoP (served in a shaker glass). Poured a deeper and cloudy orange/amber color with an average sized white head. Aromas of citrus, apples, pears, spices and sometimes I was getting bubblegum. Tastes of citrus, apples, spices, and bananas. Some alcohol in the finish. Somewhat on the sweeter side.
