COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong, full-bodied Belgian Abbey-style beer. The traditional yeast strain that is used imparts a rich array of spicy and fruit-like flavors. The prominent clove and melon notes are complemented by the sweetness and alcoholic warmth of the beer. The appealing color of glowing orange makes this brew irresistible.

Darwenus (484) - Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2012
This stuff finishes dry, but it’s front loaded with this fruity, clean taste that surprised me. It has an apple smell and kind of an apple flavor about it, and sort of a cloudy, amber body that’s nearly orange.

probstblueribbon (2737) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
12 fl oz bottle from Finger Lakes Beverage, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep golden with a decent yellow-light tan head. Aroma: Lots of rich malty, sweet fruitiness, esters, yeast, lemony citrus notes, light funky tartness, honey, nice. Palate: Medium+ body, fine, somewhat lazy effervescence. Flav.: Apple juice, apple esters and booze, quite fruity, very sweet, light lemony citrus, a little yeast, some nice rich light malts, biscuit, honey, more booze; sweet! With limited bitterness and a long, sweet, slightly boozy fruit finish.

What can I say? A somewhat amped-up version of a Belgian style that doesn’t usually interest me. Amped-up lack of interest, I suppose.

Great smooth and bold beer. It has great abundance of spicy and fruit flavors that balance it beautifully. It’s not too much of any flavor, just the right blend of sweetness to bitter.

UDBeernut (1464) - Near Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle courtesy of my sister. Clear golden hue capped by a small foamy head with almost no retention. Light citrus, grass, and dull earthiness in the nose. Taste is big cracker sweetness, clove, and flowers. Big full body, light carbonation to assist. A good solid beer. Rated via BeerBuddy

12oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some caramel malts, a little light fruit, plus light hops. Flavor the same, a little sweet. Average texture. A decent beer.

ReggieDunlap (2922) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Pours a clear honey color with a medium white head. Aroma has mild ctrus, subtle spice, and a champagney note. Flavor follows suit with a bit of sweetness and some fruity, yeasty esthers...a touch leathery. Mouthfeel is silky and the finish is dry and spicy. Better than expected!
