22 oz Bottle. Tastes like the usual Belgian style ale but has the classic stone kick to it. Easy to drink at 8.4%, but too much Belgian style is not my favorite. Nice to try but I had a laugh when I saw what outrageous prices people were paying for this on ebay.

Pours a cloudy light amber with a white head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Taste like oregano, ginger and been there, done that, wont drink it again. Big fan of stone but this ones not for me.

From a bottle. A very good Belgian beer. Nice spice and citrus flavors. Would have liked a bit less malt and a bit more hop. I am going to hold a couple of bottles until 2008 and revisit. I like this beer but just a bit too sweet.

22oz bottle. Goblet. Pours a brilliant orange amber, with light wisps of carbonation clinging to the glass. The aroma comes across intially sweet with candy sugar, pepper, wheat, clove, muscat grape, lemon, citrus zest-- a lot in there to ponder, as to be expected with these Epics. The initial sip bemoans a thin Tripel, wihich takes a unique, spicy, earthy twist, before finishing with alcohol warmth, sweetness, spice, and lingering, bitter tartness that hits the back of the throat. Good yeast... Fun beer- Should be even MORE fun in a year or two.. or 5(!)

Had this in Chimay glass, 65 cl bottle. nice mix of a Belgian tripel and saison but not really all persuasive. Nice clear golden elegant appearance. Lots of Belgian yeast flavor here. A lot of citrus, caramel and coriander will hit your nose and along the road gentle tones of apple, pear and seville orange will follow you all the way. The taste in my mouth was like a mixture of an orange effervescent tablet and grapefruit with light hints of almond, apple and lots of coriander. This beer has a light sweet initial flavor with an acidic, moderate and pretty long bitter finish. This one would go nicely with white meat like chicken and lots of sunshine.. Sadly I drank it during the Swedish wintertime, ha. Anyway, its good but I had much better saisons and much better tripels. I hope they keep it up, I know I will. Cheers.

Amazingly spiced. I could go on repeating what everyone else has said about the spicy malt finish and blah blah blah but you know what...it doesn’t matter this beer is great and gets you loose after a pint.
