CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Pours a transparent amber orange with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel and biscuity Belgian malt with a light touch of spices and fruity yeasty esters. Starts with some effervescence and malty sweetness with a nice balance of peppery clove and orange peel with some warming acidity showing up in the finish. A decent Belgian strong ale with good authenticity.

Strykzone (6025) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2009
This is a champagne beer is both appearance and taste. Throw in the effervescence as well. This beer is fruity, yeasty, and a bit funky. It is light drinking but quite complex. Alcohol cannot be tasted but is definitely there. A very tasty and enjoyable beer.

jmw141 (134) - Canton, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Bottle pour into large tulip glass. Very artsy design on the label. Ok, so here comes the elusive "Grand Cru" style. Pours a dark orange/amber with hints of red. Fizzy white head, persistent. Aroma is sour/tart, citrus, banana, spice, bread, and yeast. Complex. Flavor is sour, citrus (green apple) and slight funk. Sweetness is strong at first then gives way to a dry finish. Medium bodied. Longer duration. Not too much alcohol present in nose or mouth.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Indy Winterfest ’09. Light golden brown with thin white head. Very sweet round caramel tinged nose. Lightly fruity. Esters. Thicker body. Lower carbonation. Sweet light appley fruity caramel. Light alcohol. Lingering sweet. Light astringency. A little bit of smokiness maybe, unexpected.
