Cobra (1100) - - JUN 30, 2003
Strange 500ml bottle with a pry off cap & a flip top cap as well. Stoneware bottle, not glass. Poured out a light golden -orangish color, with a tight, white head. Aromas mostly of tropical fruits, papaya, guava, pineapple, kiwi fruit, some banana, and anise. Tastes rather strong at first, like licorice, with a fruity background. Strong malt flavors as well. Peppery tang to it also. Finishes dry, but sweet. A really nice Belgian beer in my book. Too bad it's so expensive. $10 for a 500 ml bottle.

21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2003
A very nice golden cloudy color, with a sick white head that isn't huge, yet stays around the entire time. Has a serious traditional belgian aroma to it, acid and hay. Has a thick leather belt body to it. Very nice, very refreshing.

tjp68 (31) - Washington, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Ceramic bottle from beergeek.biz. Large head, but overall light carbonation. Complex flavor that changes from the tip of the tongue to the back of throat. Strong caramel flavor in the middle. I love this. Will definitely seek it out again.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with thick white head. Aroma is mild and leans towards candy sweet. Mouthfeel has pleasant carbonation. Flavor is medium bodied. Some candy beat sugar flavors, but not overpowering. Mild hop finish cleanses the sweetness away leaving you ready for the next sip.

huineman (569) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2016
7,6% alc. 50 cl bottle bought at Alcampo, served in La Trappe chalice. Pours copperish amber with huge ivory head. Aroma is orange, iron filings, cookie dough, white flowers. Round, full-bodied, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Long lasting. Not bad, although it seems too expensive to me (6,30 per half litre). I agree that it comes with a nice bottle one might keep for water, though.

wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2014
500ml ceramic bottle into a Trappist glass; served cold. Aroma: Light raisins, fresh yeast, bready, boozy. Appearance: Moderately hazy, gold body. Creamy, white, head that slowly dissipates to a thin cap. Taste: A little malty, dried fruits like apricot and raisin. Some light caramel too. Alcohol is present but not overpowering. Palate: Very high amount of prickly carbonation. Medium body, medium+ finish that ends on light bitterness. Overall: A really nice golden. Has lots of flavors that remind me of some triples, but isnt overly sweet or boozy. Great stuff!
