Bottle from AJ’s. The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is orange peel, coriander and caramel malt. The flavor is orange, coriander, wheat, toffee and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. You can notice some of the alcohol in the taste at first. Later I didn’t mind that. Also did not mind having to wash/wax the car after some of this.

Bottle is unknown vintage, possibly 2006. Pours a hazy orange with soapy white head that leaves sugary lacing. Aroma is citrus, sweet Belgian yeast and spices. Flavor is orange peel, anise, candi sugar and perfection. A note of butterscotch, inclining some at the tasting to think that it had turned. I thought it was world-class. From notes 2/15/10.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 8/10/2015. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big pear, apple, grape, orange peel, lemon zest, light banana, wheat, pepper, clove, coriander, floral, herbal, grass, candi sugar, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of spice, malt, and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with great strength. Taste of big pear, apple, lemon zest, orange peel, grape, light banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, candi sugar, light honey, floral, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, orange peel, lemon zest, light banana, clove, coriander, pepper, wheat, herbal, floral, candi sugar, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity and balance of malt, yeast, and spice flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately slick and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian strong ale! All around great balance and complexity of malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
