This was a golden orange with a nice white head and lacing on the glass(bought the glass too, very nice). This has a good clean crisp flavor with fruits and malts and yeast on the end helping the beer be smooth. The alcohol content seems to work perfectly with the taste and neither overwhelm the other. This is as good as some of the trappist beers.

If you have read my comments you know I am a huge Trappist fan, but this beer rivals the best of them. Typical Belgian strong ale aroma and appearance, but the drinkability is outstanding This is in the top five of my favorite Belgian beers. No disappointments on this one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beautiful golden amber ale with a super thick white head. A sweet brown sugar and honey aroma, a bit oxidized, with berries and vanilla. In mouth, a sweet vanilla malt with coriander, oily mouthfeel, medium bodied. This bottle is BB17/11/06 and was tasted Dec. 6 2008, so 2 years pasted its prime. Signs of ageing. Sweetness comes out more intense with the Swedish Farmers cheese.

Pours a clear gold colour with a massive pillowy white head that fades pretty quickly.
Aroma is sweet malt, light honey, lemon and some green apple and grassy tones as well.
Flavour was initially quite crisp and fruity, malty sweet. Light peppery spice to it. Some grassy bitterness in the finish.
Very tasty and very drinkable.
