3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty standard strong ale. Yeasty, alcoholic nose. Straw colored body. Nice (read: not overpowering) amount of effervescence for the style. Has a big bubblegum and cloves yeast thing going on in the flavor, and leaves a nice dry palate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy straw color; Huge head with a ton of lace; Typical Bbelgian sweet nose- inviting. Spicy dry assaults you right away. Gets even spicier as the glass goeson. Almost pepper-like. Very good. Alcohol rises pleasently from the back of the throat.

Bottled, Nov 01, 4.0: Hop and citrus aroma. Beautiful foam and lots of it too. Orange/amber colored. Bit sweet, citrus and a light alcohol taste. Sparkling on the lips. Leaves a long lasting burning sensation.
