A: Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. No retention or lace. S: Aroma sort of grassy, earthy, with notes of dried fruit. T: Nice fruity flavor with hints of earth, grass, and mild citrus. There is a nice blast of spice and Belgian yeast to round things out. M: Light in body, zippy carbonation pretty enjoyable.

Bottle courtesy of a generous RB at tpd975’s throwdown in December, 2009. Pours a hazy yellow to golden with thin white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of candy sugar, honey, caramel, hints of toffee. Flavor is about the same. Medium body with a pleasing sweet malt finish.

Maltzilla (38) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Thanks to John for this bad boy! Appearance: The carbonation really plays a strong role in this beer’s appearance . . . almost like poring a glass of champagne! Golden, bubbly, light and crisp looking. Smell: Got a good amount of fruit notes on this one. Some citrus and very nice spice to it as well. Taste:Very nice flavor, got some fruits again and definitely good warmth from the alcohol, but nothing overpowering (despite it being quite high in ABV) Mouthfeel & Drinkability: Love this beer. It’s deceptively drinkable despite the high alcohol content. You could easily drink this all night and get yourself into a lot of trouble by the end of the evening. The champagne yeast makes this every palatable and enjoyable.

Bottle at the Utah tasting. Pours out a dark cloudy gold almost amber with a small white head. Aroma of belg yeast, grapes, and the classic banana spice. Taste is more of the grape along with s little oak and more of the belg yeast.

Sample courtesy of superdave70. Had a farmhouse aroma. Gold body with white head. Sweet fruit in the flavor along with some yeast. I think my palate is losing patience with Belgians latley but not bad of brew. Thanks Dave.

750ml bottle from douglas. thanks man... pours a hazy golden brown with a thin to medium soapy white head.... aroma of grass and dried fruit, apricots/pears and the like. light on the yeast... slightly effervescent in the body, the flavors comprised up of light spice and sweet dried fruit. finished a little dry. refreshing in some ways but not too complicated.
