Looks like they have brought this back as a special release. Pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, Belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet and malty, spice and yeasty notes.

Tasted on tap at the brewpub in a snifter tulip. It poured a nice orange-amber colour with deep, fluffy white foam, everlasting with sticky Belgian lace. Aromas and flavours of grain, white crackers, active bread dough and freshly baked French baguette, grassy noble hops, tangy bitterness, fruity esters, black pepper and bubble-gum phenols. Light body, strong carbonation, crisp and snappy mouthfeel, complex aftertaste which lingers. Good stuff. I liked it almost as much as their beloved Belgian Singel, and much prefer it to their Tripel. Highly recommended.

Had this on tap at Bottleworks in Maplewood. Slight alcohol. Lots of fruit and slightly sweet. Very nice beer.

2013 bottle to a snifter. Very clean, clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is barnyard, vinegar, tart and tropical fruit. Taste is juicy fruit with a spiciness and an earthy quality. Some hay. Medium dry mouthfeel with a little bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy golden/orange with a dense fluffy white head. The aroma has lots of Belgian yeastiness, lightly toasted malt, spice, light banana and some nectar fruits. Medium rich body with quite a bit of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with rich smooth malt, moderate sweetness, some toast, very prevalent yeast and some spicy hops. The finish is has a bit of minerals that balance the sweetness. Well made.

phaleslu (6460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Draft served in an imperial pint glass at the Schlafly Bottleworks. Pours as its name suggests- a mostly clear, bright gold color with a small bone white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet malts, honey, apricots, peaches, candi sugar, and some grass. Flavor of Belgian yeast, honey, sweet malts, tropical fruits, candi sugar, and peppery spices. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. This will seem pretty familiar to anyone who’s had a Schlafly Belgian beer before, though that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
