Bottle pours a hazy golden with a white head. Scent is fruit and booze. Taste is spice, yeast and malty.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
Brown 33cl bottle, best before 07-2011, drank 02-2010, poured, including whatever was at the base of the bottle, into my Westmalle chalice. A dull orange body, which was misty and murky filled the chalice, a clean, fairly thick, white head sat on top, the head soon fell to a thinner wispy covering with a lacing collar. Hunks of sediment could clearly be seen gambling through the cloudy body of the beer. Belgian yeast esters could be sniffed, along with the sweeter end of the citrus fruits (oranges and pink grapefruits). The taste was a heavenly mix of flavours, the aforementioned citrus fruits, Cloves? Cinnamon? and a sweetness that isn’t pushy like some Belgian beers, sugar is however listed as an ingrediant. The body tries to counter the heavy alcohol and almost manages to hide it, but fails, so the 9% ABV rears its head mid-way through the mouthfeel, getting stronger as the mouth dries. This is very drinkable, the alcohol is evident, but the whole package seems to cope well with it, sadly I don’t have another to follow this one (but I do have two more beers from this brewery to review, maybe even tonight).

Scrapersnbeer (1531) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Big front nose of fruit - apricots and whatnot, and yeast. Orange peel hue, persistent head and pretty active. Sweet, sugary taste with an almost rummy backend, which is the only hint as to the strength. Medium body, minor zest. Another big one from the Belgian tradition. Not too big tough.

33cl bottle, a bit of a gusher... Cloudy dark gold. Apricot, spice and boiled sweets on the nose, dry and peppery yet fruity body, a bit yeasty (surprise!), dry finish with a little honey and apricot.

mike_77 (4324) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2012
Bit of a gusher so ends up with lots of residue in the glass and almost no fizz. Aroma quite yeasty. Flavour is a bit unrefined. The bread dough taste overpowers the light sweetness.
