At first I thought I was really going to enjoy this beer. Its got a ton of flavor up front. Hoppy and a little malty. But as I drank it more and more I began to taste nothing but the 16% alcohol. It could have been in my head but I couldnt get past that. If it wasnt so strong I really think I would have enjoyed it more

Aroma and strong flavor of cardamom almost smokey on the palate. Definitely sweet but also clove notes. It is an ok Belgium style but not too drinkable. Beautiful golden color and very smooth mouth feel.

Golden pour. Smells exactly liek a tripel. The flavor is a tripel with a huge maltiness. It is good for what it is but at 8% this beer woudl probably be a winner.

Pours a crystal clear medium orange that effervesces slightly up to a somewhat thing and quickly fading white head. Nose is sweet and yeasty. Flavor is typically Belgian with lots of fruit notes --- pear and apple come through. Finish is dominated by the alcohol as the warming effect lasts longer than the flavor. Doesnít drink like 16%, as itís mildly warming but mostly very fruity and smooth.

This does not taste like a 16% alcohol beer. I may have guessed 9 or 10. It is very smooth, belgiany flavors that are very subtle. This is really drinkable and refreshing for the alcohol content. Aroma is mostly spicey belgiany yeast.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear, light golden color with a big white head that dissipates to nothing. Had aromas of apricots, pear, banana, and a touch of caramel. Really sweet and yeasty all the way down, and a bit of an alcohol burn at the end. Medium bodied beer that goes down quite easily. Alcohol was more prevalent as the beer warmed up. Good brew, a little light for my liking. Happy anniversary Two Brothers!

22oz. Bottle. Pours a very clear orange with a huge, white head that dissipates quickly. A lot of lacing and a ton of carbonation. Aroma is pear, pineapple, yeast and malt. Not much going on here. Mouth is very yeasty with an interesting sparkling grape-like flavor and a slight hop presence. A decent beer, the alcohol content definitely helps this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Decent bits of lace. Big body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy. Just a bit of sticky in the finish, that quickly turns dry. At first, I was amazed by how smooth this drinks for 16%. I talked to some of the brewers, though, and found out that itís actually around 12%. Apparently the labels were approved before the final product was finished. Itís a very smooth body, no bite or burn as it goes down. Just a light twinge in the finish. I was amazed that it drinks like sub-12%, but later discovered that thatís appropriate. Sort of tangy, some belgian candy sugar (not too much though), banana, breadiness. Dried citrus-fruits, very light spice. Good stuff.

22 oz. bottle. Had I looked at the label and noticed it was "16%" I probably wouldnít have opened this for myself. Though, smelling it now, I have my doubts itís that high. Normal orange pour with a small white head. Aroma of pear, pineapple, sweet malt. Flavor is mildly hot, sweet. Lots of fruit and booze flavors. Some pale malt. Mouthfeel is typical, normal, average. Meh. Itís your anniversary. You can make it as special as you want.
