COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2004 Hops in the City festival beer. Fruity, spicy, aromas and flavors contribute to the complexity of this Belgian ale. Medium body and effervescence contribute to a light, dry impression, despite its substantial strength and sweet, smooth finish.

hotstuff (3912) - Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Rated on 10-22-2009 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a large frothy white head that mostly diminishes, hazy golden body, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma consists of yeast, fruit and spice. The Taste is spicy, sweet and fruity. This beer has a short dry finish. The Palate is mildly tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is another nicely brewed beer from Schlafly. I enjoyed the flavor of this beer and it is worth trying. This is definitely a beer I recommend trying and a beer I would enjoy drinking again.

Une bouteille de 750ml embouteillée le 14 novembre 2012 partagée avec Patrick. Un liquide jaune dorée ressemblant au miel. Un nez acide, de malt pils et de miel. La bouche est acide de mauvais malt pils et de sucre candy. Je n’aime pas cette bière.

Un flacon de 75 cl. Un liquide embouteillé avec amour le 11-14-2012. À l’œil, une boisson dorée et sa petite tête blanchâtre et incertaine. Au nez, l’échange classique mais sans doute efficace entre la levure épicée et les malts pâles belges. Une montée fruitée qui semble regrouper quelques citrons avec des fruits du verger. Au goût, une présence non-négligeable de pâte à pain, de coriandre et de notes citronnées. Une présence très poivrée et passablement florale d’un alcool qui m’achale. Au palais, un liquide qui présente un corps de moyenne densité avec un lot de bulles piquantes et une texture faiblement crémeuse. En finale, un mélange plus ou moins réussi de houblons, d’alcool et de levure. Tout compte fait, pas tant catastrophique que ça. Cette bière me semble intéressante pour ce qu’elle est. Enfin, pour le moment, ce type de bière me lasse royalement.

Finhead (1111) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
For rating #1000, bottle autographed by Dan Kopman. Hazy, yellow-orange pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is spicy and herbal, with some light fruit. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is sweet but finishes a little milder with a semi-dry feel.

Sampled at the Funky 8 - Brooklyn, NYC. Big and sweet, faintly tangy. Dark fruits, raisins, caramel, bread. Some booze. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with sugary malts and further dark, rich and ripe fruits. Decent.
