Tap, CK. Smaller white head on a mostly clear golden yellow. Apples, slight pear, spices, and slightly sour grassiness. Flavor is a bit drier than indicated in the aroma which is appreciated, slight spice, vanilla notes and ripe light fruits. Lighter body that's a little sticky with vibrant carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanIHave4Beers (3969) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 28, 2012
On draught, at de Garre (of course)

Pours a blonde color with a huge white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is floral, sweet, spicy and peppery. More yeasty and alcoholic than malty but pretty well put together all said.

The flavor is spicy and nicely sweet with a good lime-stone-i-ness. The beer has a light alcoholic character and some banana. Yeasty in the finish with some dryness to help it go down.

On tap, pours dark golden with a nice white head, aroma of yeast, spices, fruit and malt, taste follows the nose, alcohol is notiable, pretty sweet and heavy, decent but nothing special, reminds me of kasteel tripel.

On tap at Brouwer’s Big Wood. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick foamy head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, candied fruits, citrus zest, honey and molasses. Flavour of Belgian yeast, candied fruits, citrus zest, honey, molasses and some floral notes. Full bodied. I understand the complexity, but I’m starting to go off this style.
