Deep orange amber, big foamy head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruity with some unclean finish. Citric, bitter front with some black tea aftertaste. Clear example of confused Belgian.

Red amber body with a big fluffy off white head. Some belgian yeast and alcohol in the aroma. Flavour is malty with some alcohol lingering underneath it. Pleasant but uninspired. Mondial 2T (Tiggmtl).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a very hazy amber with a monster head and lots of lace. The aroma is mild, mostly of hops. The flavor is somewhat sour, shows hops, fruity, and fairly refreshing with a cleansing palate. Overall, too sour for the style.

Pours a cloudy amber. Very hoppy citrus aroma. Flavor is a very tart,fruity,hoppy flavor. There is alot going on in this brew I can’t pick up. There is flavor but of what else? Not bad and not good all the same.

Bottled, thanks Bov!
Amber colour, creamy head. Herbal spicy, yeasty nose. Sweet and fruity with some citric acidity. Simple, mellow mouthfeel. Un-stylish.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark red with medium sized head. Tart, sour taste of pepper and berries. Kind of a strange brew as the more you drink it, the more enjoyable it becomes.

Best by 24/10/2005 drank on 2/5/2004: Cloudy orange with a huge white rocky head. Spicy aroma, with bits of oranges, alcohol and yeast. Medium bodied with an alcohol bite, starts and ends sweet. I won’t drink this again.
