Mahogany with a light head and sheets of lace. Very sweet nose with notes of citrus and spruce or pine. Caramel in there as well. Bitter hops and sweet malts in the flavors. A bit of heat comes through. Almost a bit sickly sweet. Thick and full bodied with alcohol heat in the end.

On tap at The Tap House. Pours a clear bright copper with a lacy white head. Aroma of apricots and spice. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet and spicy taste that for some strange reason reminded me of banana and pepperoni sandwich - not that I’ve ever had such a sandwich.

Taster - Hop Scotch Spring Beer Festival – Seattle WA
Deep orange color with a thin head. This was a nice Belgian to drink. The flavors where fruity and dry. This did have some extra buttery notes and the finish was just a tad off. I am not a Belgian drinker so this could be my issues.

(Draught) Served in a Trappist glass. Sampled at Uber Tavern. Pours a thin, white dissipated head with a deep ruby body. Nose is incredibly aromatic: very perfume, malty. Flavour is mildly soapy with an oily ointment texture and a cherry medicine finish. It really tastes much better than the descriptors I’ve used. Honest.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light amber coloured with a large head. Sweet and also kinda spicy. A little perfumed in both aroma and flavour. Feels somewhat artificial and sharp. Hints of alcohol and confusing fruit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 A hazy orange beer with a huge light orange head. The aroma is sweet with extremely strong notes of peaches and apricots - somewhat perfumy and artificial. The flavor is medicinaly fruity - especially apricots, but also spices, and a weird artificial note. The body is thin.
