3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy amber beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is very yeasty and very spicy with hints of alcohol, peaches, and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet - almost too sweet with notes of peach, cloves, as well as yeast on a background with hints of alcohol. The end is quite dry with the sweetness lingering together with warmth from the alcohol.

Dark yellow color, cloudy appearance. Big white head. Spicy, fruity, sweet and mildly alcoholic aroma. Flavor starts with mild spices and fruits, ends with too strong alcohol. ending is also nicely dry, maybe due to strong alcohol.

Clear golden colour with an initially large white head, which settled down to a permanent thin one. Very nice and interesting aroma; soft sour and sweet fruits, fresh yeast: the "Barnyardy"-ness mentioned by the previous reviewer is spot on. Taste is sweet, dry and lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is dominated by the carbonation. Not bad.

Clear, light gold, with a large, fizzy head. Barnyardy aroma, with soft cheeses, sour pungent yeasts, and alcohol. Abrasive carbonation level. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavor, with hints of green apples, dust, plums, and cobwebs. Awful mouthfeel kills this for me.

Hazy blonde coloured. Some spices in aroma, quite sweet flavour. Finishes a bit dry. While this oneís not bad, I obviously prefer the Satan Red.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2004 Yeasty, fruity aroma. Hazy, orange coloured with a lasting, thin, white head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, malty, fruity (mostly citrus, perhaps some strawberry), yeasty and some hints of spices. Bit sharp, alcoholic and dry. Well brewed, however a bit boring.
Rerate. I donít really agree with my earlier remark; Not too well-brewed.

Nice golden color,large white foamy head that had a nice long hangtime then faded to a small lace.Nice fruity aroma with a bit of hops and maybe even a hint of spice coming through.The flavor is nicely fruity with a mild sweetness and nice carbonation with a nice amount of spice to give it a slight peppery feel and some hops thrown in to round out the experience.The alcohol manages to stay fairly well hidden and the brew itself is fairly smooth.not a bad brew at all but i know there are better out there.Itís worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: golden, indeed, and gifted with an enormous, fluffy white white resting comfortably atop the glass before slowly collapsing...
Citric sour, plus yeast and spice in the aroma, fitting ably a generic fill-in for a Belgian tripel, but, so far, so good...
Mmmmm, tasty, has the zing, has the zest, just not too much of it! Plenty of citric fruit in the taste, a good helping of spice, very tasty...though this will never unseat Duvel as cheif of Satanic Belgian blondes, sorry, no-one will, ever! As a tasty semi-tripel, though, this "isnít all that bad"...which is American upside-down vernacular for "pretty-good!"
Warm, glowing, fruity, tasty, has no problems, beerwise, has nothing but plusses, just doesnít compare to others in the style...Mmm, though, I do enjoy this!

Hazy with a thin head. Aroma from sour fruits and yeast. Very sour and grassy flavor and ends in a rather bitter way.
