I was pleasantly surprised. I thought this would be a random run of the mill "ale wtih spices".... I loved the aroma - sweet citrusy notes. And the flavor was very pleasing... nice malty flavor balanced with the orange/grapefruit/lemon note spices brewed in. This was great. Not terribly complex and not sure how much better if I let this one age for 4+ more years. Good beer.

Golden amber color with a light white disappering head. Fresh grassy aroma with green apples, spices, and sweet fruit. Fresh flavor of green apples, bananas, caramel, ginger and honey. Mouthwatering feeling with a thick, sticky finish.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Nice looking brew. Clear medium amber, head fades rather quick. Smell is great, sweet fruits. Taste is good, a little light, but good from beginning to end. Very smooth, good aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one of the nicer takes on the malty Belgian ales that Iíve tried, particularly by an American brewer, most of whom produce very disappointing results when making Belgian strong ales and trippels. this pours a cinnamon nut-brown with vibrant carbonation. Complex aromas of cinnamon, grapefruit, orange peel, ginger, all-spice. More spicy than fruity. Medium bodied yeasty mouthfeel. Iíd say this leans toward being a heavily spiced witbier rather than a dubbel or trippel. Itís very nice. I bought several extras, which I will store and drink in a few years.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
the color is a golder amber with a small and brief head. the smell is of heavy esters, strong aromas of dark fruits, caramel and such, not at all disappointing. The flavor is a bit more dry and bitter than I expected with a sweet and bitter middle and a clean finish. overall a well crafted beer.

Hint of cinnamon with a granny smith apple. Apple cinnamon candle aroma. Smells like Christmas. Weak head with minimal lacing. Copper in color.Creamy texture with a long finish. Malty taste like peanut butter. I thought the older vintage would be better than the new vintage but thus far not true. I guess I will find out.

Bottle. Poured a murky orange color with a lot of sediment and a slight white head. Aroma of fruit and yeast. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is very fruity with a lot of apricot to it. A lot of spices in this, maybe some ginger and cinnamon. Alcohol is very present in its finish. A very nice beer. Thanks to HomeBrewHawk for the bottle. Very generous.

Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with almost no head. Syrupy thick body. Fruity aroma with some hops, malt and candy. Hoppy bitter taste giving way to an amazingly flavorful sharp fruity taste. Sweet malty and spicy notes. Absolutely amazing. Warm thick body with a great lingering taste, makes my mouth water.
