skoisirius (1717) - Earth, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a fairly see through darker golden yellow. Light head retention. Malt and spice come through on the aroma, but its not powerful. Heavy spices, seeming cardomonish. Quite malty, fairly syrupy body. I

Tried this at a Hop in the City as their festival beer and it was a little too sweet for my liking. Worth a try if you like this style.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2007
First sample from the Schlafly Cabin tasting 1/20/2007. Filtered and honey golden. Large bubbled off-white head. Sweet honey nose with a nice floral sweetness. Medium bodied with a stickiness from the sugary malts. Yeasty floral flavors. Nice bitter finish. Sweet caramel bready flavor. Crisp hop finish.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2006
On tap at Great Taste of the Midwest. I’ll be honest, I don’t remember this one too well, but my notes say it was golden in color. Fruity and sweet flavors, this one went down quickly. Dangerously drinkable.

Kevin (2091) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 9, 2006
pours a dark hay brown that has gold when held aloft. not much of a head, just a ring of white. super sweet nose with some nice phenolics and a bit of rose aroma and honey. trying not to say "a grand cru by any other name would smell as sweet" or something, but i failed. strong sweet sugar and alcohol taste. banana and clove flavors balance this. it is sticky & leaves a pancake syrup likeness in the finish. i like this. some berry flavors really make this a winner. i just wish it was served in a snifter or chalice or something to allow me to enjoy this aroma more.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Pours medium / dark brown witha a solid white head. The aroma has typical Belgium malt / yeast characteristics along with some peach and spice. Medium thick body wiht semi-soft carbonation. Taste starts out with a mildly sweet malt with spice and nectar fruits. Smooth mouthfeel with some prickly character on the finish due to the carbonation and spice. There are some spicy hops on the finish as well. As you get further down the glass a grapelike character comes out as well. Very nicely done.

csbosox (1223) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - NOV 5, 2005
KC tasting. 2004 edition. Light gold color, hazy white head. Orange peel, corriander, spice aroma with a touch of white pepper. Orange peel, corriander flavor. Not too bad.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2005
05 hop in the city in KC. Clear straw color with no visable carbonation. Very spicey with some barnyard notes. Spicy horsey citrusy flavors. Lots of yeast chracter. Apparently it aged very well.

Terminus (3254) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 19, 2005
tap-hop in the city 05-pours orange with a snice soapy white head. some banana, spicy notes and a tinge of candy sugar here. The belgian character is there, but its not all that complex. estery, candy sugar, tart flavors-very tart! This is a fairly good belgian beer.
