"The end of the world. The excellence of triple fermentation through a blend of special yeasts gives this malt beverage an exquisitely robust flavor of exceptional refinement."

A very frothy head that is a mixture of small and large bubbles. Cloudy yellow color. I donít detect much aroma at all. Sparkly feel in the mouth with nice mixture of sweet, smooth,flowery-spicy. Doesnít have the alcohol burn you might expect from a 9%abv. I seem to detect just a very slight cidery note. Very tasty overall, and quite refreshing.

Very fruity and sweet, nice yellow color.This is one sweet and fruity beer, its good, but not that good. The perfume smell is almost to much at times, maybe Blondes donít have more fun.

Best example of style. The champagne of beers.

Murky yellow colour, little bit of alcohol taste to it. Coriander, cloves and other spices present in the taste. Tastes a bit like a belgian white beer.

Ernest (6153) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately yeasty (cobwebs), lightly hoppy (flowers, lemon), lightly malty (cookie, toasted grain), with notes of alcohol, banana, and clove. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Yeast dominates the aroma a bit too much, and itís a little watery and alcoholic, and too sweet for the style, but overall itís a nice Belgian strong golden. A bit too straightforward and color-by-numbers in the end.

Nice full spicy flavor. Full bodied and I love the cloudy appearance. Would go great with a fancy chicken dish.

August oranges fall from the sky as apples turn to luscious cider instantaneously…Shards of caramel nuts and exquisite blades of wheat caress me as they pass by…Raining white pepper…Wondrous malt/hop balance…If this is the end of the world, I feel privileged to relive it again and again…

Bottle. Pale golden yellow appearance with a laced head. Much like a white beer with the belgian tripel punch. Spicy and flowerly flavor.

This is a beer that comes alive as it warms a bit. Iím not a fan of suspending the yeast in this one - pour carefully after letting it sit for a couple of days. From other experience, this beer ages very well, particularly in the larger 750 ml size. This bottle poured with a fair bit of chill haze, which cleared as the beer warmed to a gorgeous gold with hints of orange. The head was large, white, and creamy, with moderate to good longevity. Aroma started fairly closed, with hints of bready malt and a touch of flowery perfume. As it warmed, the maltiness came out, along with big flowery hops, hints of coriander, clove, and citrus. The alcohol also becomes apparent in the nose as it warms. Body is quite full, with fine, strong carbonation and a mouth-coating finish. When cold, the flavor is subdued, clean, starting moderately sweet and finishing somewhat bitter. After warming to appropriate drinking temp, the sweetness dominates, along with strong citrus and flowery notes. This is one of my standard almost always in the fridge beers, I love it ...

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2003 Excellent Belgian Strong Ale. Quite similar to Duvel, but a little lighter and cleaner. Pale yellow. Slightly sweet. Quite effervescent. The alcohol is hidden wonderfully. No noticable alcohol aroma, flavor, or even warming. How they hid this much alcohol in a beer this light and delicate is a mystery. An excellent beer!
