UPDATED: SEP 17, 2008 Brown colored, medium lasting yellow head. Aroma is sweet with grains, brown sugar, mild alcohol and spices, maybe too sweet for my taste. Medium bodied. Very sweet, yeasty flavor, nice warming alcohol in the end with some spices.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2005
330 mL bottle. Poured a beautiful hazy, medium copper/amber with a nice, creamy 1" beige head. Nose picked up a wonderful bouquet of light fruits, cloves, pepper, some citrus, and a sticky underlying caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel was quite creamy and really coated the taste buds with all its goodness... and just the right amount of carbonation kept it moving. Subtle hoppy bitterness graced the tip of the tongue and returned for the finish, and the middle was chock fulla smooth malts. Flavors included some light fruits (apple, green grapes, pears), spices (pepper and some clove), floral hops, caramel, and a yeast presence not unlike the Abt. 12. My only gripe is that the fruit and other sweetness bunched up toward the back, and became almost cloying. This was an excellent brew... get some!

Cloudy topaz color. Banana, white bread, and earthy aromas. Tangy feel. Comes off as being lighter than it is. Seems more like a Weisse.

Clear copper with a huge white billowy head. Aroma of spice, caramel and pear. Flavor has notes of caramel, clove, banana, apple, spices, yeast/bread and white grapes. Sweet and malty with plenty of hop character to balance it out. Alcohol content very well hidden. Medium bodied, smooth texture and lively, spritzy carbonation. Good stuff!

25 oz corked bottle. Pours a yellowish copper color with a very thick white head. Unfiltered, with plenty of hops floating around. Aroma is lemony with hints of fresh yeast, hops and flowers. Taste is sour, dominated by lemon citrus and orange peel. Very refreshing belgium tripel.

More and more I realize that Iím really not a big fan of Belgian ales. No doubt, this beer tastes good, it looks good, it smells good, but itís so close to all the other abbey ales, is it really worth shelling out $5 for a bottle of t his stuff? Only time will tell... until then, more IPAs and Imperial Stouts and Lambiks!

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 Rich and fulfilling. Light and refreshing. Strong, yet unassuming. The kick is in the alcohol, not the flavor. .
