Reddish amber color. Pours with a large white head that quickly diminishes to virtually nothing. Strong perfumy aroma of orange, some grapefruit, yeast, and spice. Smooth and creamy textures with flavors of bread like yeast, citrus, spice, and a mild hop bitter finish. The finish is mild but long lasting. A nice attempt at a Belgian Ale.

Darkish amber color, with a Belgian yeast flavor. Not much head retention. A good, but not great, attempt at a Belgian ale.

Bottle: The beer is a dark orange-red color. I didn't get much head on mine, and it didn't last or lace. Some corriander and yeastiness to the aroma. Also some hops. The taste is a bit of the same: corriander, yeastiness and some hops. Not bitter, but I can taste the hops. They distract from the rest of the flavors a bit. The rest of the beer isn't quite full enough to stand up to them. Stil, very tasty.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2003
An effort at replicating a Belgian beer. A little sour, fruity a bit of bread. Bland aroma. It is ok but not a great one

Surprisingly I didn't really catch the Belgian yeast so much here (maybe my Belgain senses were fried from the Lucifer I had just before it). The coriander comes through really clearly as a nice citrus flavor, lemony not acid-like or as a hoppy bitter - very nice mouthfeel actually. All the fruit in the description was present and very well balanced - a great spring (or summer) time beer.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2003
This really wasn't too bad. Lots of belgian flavor up front. Nice hops and malt characteristics. Not immensly complex, but very good none the less. Drinkable and enjoyable.

Brown in color with fluffy tan head. The nose has light fruit and coffee? Flavor is yeasty, with toffee and malt.

Medium brown color, medium head. A full-bodied, belgian style ale. Malty and sweet (added sugar?) Slightly hoppy, hops are spicy. Complex flavors. Good taste. Smooth. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly malty and sweet.

Dark caramel color with a fluffy mocha colored head. Aromas of coffee, nuts and chocolate. Flavor of toffee with a subtle bitter finish. Full bodied with a hint of Belgian candy sugar. A real treat.
