750 ml bottle...poured golden orange w/ a slightly off-white head. Aromas of citrus and spices...Flavors of pears, yeast, white grapes, a touch of peach, a tiny bit of citrus, and some spices. The spices linger on the back of the palate as does a sweetness. The beer has a nice dry bite to it. Very tasty Florida brewed Belgian Strong.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2011
2009 bomber. Foamed over after releasing cork. Pours a hazy, reddish brown w/ a thick foamy light tan head. Aromas of yeast, cherry, caramel, molasses, pears and grape. Bright, aggressive carbonation - mouthfeel, at first, is closer to sparkling wine - but became thicker as it warmed. A lot going on flavor-wise. BY turns sweet and fruity and then tart - cherry, lemon and raspberry. Belgian yeast comes through, and a slight boozey note, malts and something like apple cider that has turned. Overall, itís oddly enjoyable and Iíd certainly try it again.

750ml bottle. Pours amber-brown with a medium-large off-white head. Aroma is fairly malty with a touch of yeast and ripened fruit. Flavor is of caramel malts and just a slight amount of alcohol. Pretty good beer.

Finding this brewery and this beer has made my need to return to Belgium a bit less urgent. Itís clean, just dry enough, has a tiny edge of funk that I personally find very desirable. These guys are the closest decent brewery to my refrigerator. Iím going to do my best to get their product on the shelves of one of our local packeyís.

Beerbuddha (100) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Appearance- This beer poured a nice murky, amber color with a HUGE fluffy off white head which stay around awhile. Lacing is present throughout the life of this beer. Smell- Tons of fruit smells are present such as cherry, strawberry, plums and hints of apple. Nice malty breadiness is present as well. Taste- Taste and smell are very similar here with the fruits coming through. The sweet and tart fruit flavors are well balanced. Nice maltiness in the middle which leaves a nice sweetness in the mouth leaving you wanting more. Mouthfeel- This is a nice medium body brew with medium carbonation. Overall- Overall this is a great beer made by a small brewery. Itís an easy drinking beer with an ABV that leaves you with a warm feeling. The size of the beer(750ml)means youíre drinking a fair amount of beer so you need to be in the mood to drink or share with a friend or two.

TopherDrinks (96) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Bottle thanks to BigMilly8. Pours a dirty ruby orange with a late forming off white head. Nose is of fruity malts, breads, funk, tropical fruits, and yeast. Due to the nose I was anticipating a huge acidic flavor but this was not the case. Plums, yeast, bready malts, fresh oranges, doughy malts, candy sugars, with a touch of spiciness (I assume from the fine yeast particulates that now lay at the bottom of the bottle). Very light bodied and quite refreshing as the alcohol only becomes noticeable once this warms.

Pours an amber colour. Dark fruits, hints of spice, and caramel in the nose. Dark fruit, candy sugar, and Belgian yeast in the mouth. Very drinkable

Bottle. Pours dark orange-reddish color with a large head that disappears quickly. Smells of some fruit, berries. alcohol. Taste is tart, with a lot of fruit and alcohol finish. Not bad but the tartness takes over in a not-so-good ways.
