COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

LinusStick (3159) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2007
An extreme Belgian beer. This tastes like an American Strong with a Belgian twist. Pour was a cloudy ruby with a puffy white head. Aroma was yeasty and "Belgian-y". Taste was strong malt and alcohol with a syrupy mouthfeel. Fruity aftertaste with an alcohol burn. This is not bad but almost tastes "American" if that makes sense.

Padron4KM (782) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2007
750 ml bottle corked and caged.

Smudged date code on the back of the bottle.

Clear dark golden, steady carbonation

The latte foam like head recedes slowly and delicate lace patterns trace it’s path down the glass.

Initial aroma is ripe fruits and yeast, later some caramel and light brown sugar emerge with maybe a little bubblegum esters.

Flavor is ripe fruit, mango, banana with a slightly sugary sweetness that is balanced by a nice refreshing bitter finish.

Creamy mouth feel. Alcohol is deceptively hidden.

I got this bottle for just over $4, a steal IMHO, if it wasn’t mispriced I’m going back for the lot of them.

vyvvy (5381) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Pours copper / orange with a fizzy off-white head. The aroma has toasted malt, dark fruits, earthy yeast, some alcohol warmth, toffee and cleaner - that last aspect takes down points from an otherwise fine aroma. Medium / full body with a minor amount of semi-sharp carbontion. The taste starts with nectar fruits, bubblegum like sweetness and alcohol warmth. The finish doesn’t add much more than head. This is not a bad beer, but it seems quite one dimensional for the style ~ so it goes, it wasn’t that expensive for a Belgium 750.

AvantAle (50) - Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Bottle... I think. Golden, golden, golden. Bright. Light head with an interresting pattern. Dotty. Has a very grassy smell. Alfalfa, malt, maple syrup, sugar cane, almond, and pine needles. The flavor isn’t as detailed with notes of pine and honey, but it is well balanced, and covers alcohol well. Finishes smoothe and creamy.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Golden muddy coloration. Notes of coffee, nuts and chocolate. A certain bitter taste in the tongue leaves. Excellent carbonation. Perfect cream.
