Golden colored brew. Sweet, mild fruity aroma. Flavor is spicy, malty. Overall not bad, expected less with that name.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 30, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Medium golden/orange in color, with a sizable foamy head. Slightly sweet aroma. Some grain and acidity. Spicy yeast flavors up front. A little bit of an off flavor. Yeasty finish with a little bitterness.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle, from Bevmo, La Jolla. Bright Gold color. Typical fruity Belgian aroma. Very active carbonation. Flavor is fairly nice - interesting maple, molasseses flavor. Not as fruity as I would expect from the aroma. Pretty decent.

Suttree (5766) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2008
Yellow, medium sized white head, but a bonus appearance point for the cool label. Its different from the one pictured - it has the little bottle shaped dude with a bow tie and it looks cool. Anyway, very biscuity aroma, with some fruity and peppery notes. Flavor is pretty much the same. It looks very similiar to Duvel, but lacks the fruityiness, and is much more bready. All in all, pretty tasty.

mickblueeyes (106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2008
Color: Pale gold and cloudy with a foamy white head and nice lacing. Nose: A distinctively simple malty nose with fruity raspberry notes and nutty crushed walnut notes. A touch of coriander/orange peel in the background. Palate: Simple malty palate. The palate weight is a bit thin, but has some nice bready, yeasty notes before finishing with caramel and honey. The lack of body is made up in the fact that this is a great session beer.

patrick767 (3824) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2008
bottle - Pours gold with an ample white head. The has a light, yeasty malt aroma. The flavor is a bland sweet pale malt with maybe a mild hint of fruit esters. It has a light body and finishes dry. It’s drinkable, but I expect more from a Belgian ale.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
nearbeer (4468) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2008
330 ml, bb 18/06/2008. Foggy and effervescent orange-gold with a four-finger, lasting head. Aroma is grain, alcohol, spicy yeast, and grass. Flavor is alcoholic bread yeast, spicy coriander, apples in alcohol, and lemongrass oil. Light body is frothy with carbonation, and tingly and dry with alcohol. Did I mention the alcohol in this one? Tastes like a spiced European Strong Lager.

Rune (9996) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 15, 2008
UPDATED: APR 16, 2008 Long-lived white head over a pale golden hue. Aroma of sweet, late fruits. Rather sweet flavour with a refreshing amount of wheat and malty grain. Medium palate (sampled at BBF, Oslo 10.04.2008).

When I saw this, I thought, "Duvel wannabe" - and yeah, it seems like I’m right. Same bottle, same color scheme. Points off for the goofy take off of "sober" and the weird label. So, I was inspired to also pick up som Duvel to compare this to. About $10 for a 4-pack of Duvel, versus $4.50 per bottle for this - a really bad deal. Basically, this tastes like a watered down Duvel - did a side by side tasting of these - similar malt flavors and aromas, but this is weaker. I’ve had so many good/great Belgian brews, this is like a Milwaukee’s Best version of them
