2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Sparkling clear amber body topped by a dense white head. Looks quite fine. The aroma is not near as fine; very sweet candy/fruit along with some sort of cleaning supply odor. The flavor is packed with alcohol and sweet sugary fruit. Medium bodied with loads of alcohol burn. This is not good stuff, at all. Borderline abombination IMO.

On tap. A mber golden with frothy white head. A nice belgian. Not as nauseatingly sweet as a lot of other belgians. Fruity and all in all pretty good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep golden/amber color, active carbonation. Quite frothy. A very nice, soft feel, plenty of alcohol in the flavor and malty. Has a definite Belgian flavor to it, sweet and sticky. Very drinkable and well made.

Judging by the other comments, I must have a bad batch. All four bottles. Upon opening the bottle...ugh.... D M S. Cooked cabbage. The beer itself tastes good. I will try again and re-rate if the veggie odor is gone.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is strong with a sour mash of a wide variety of fruits. name a soft fruit and this smells a little like it and thext seven soft fruits you can name. Definitely leans toward the exotic ones though. Mango, papaya, guava, but there are overripe bannana pear notes as well. Color is hazy orange. Head is fast diminish and bubbly white. Fruity/yeasty fore that is quite soft and tasty. Finish is all hot throat burning alcohol, but itís works with the flavores here playing the thorns to the fruity flavorís rose. Gets a bit spicy just before the finish, but the spice notes are second fiddle to the exotic fruit mash of flavors here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[I sampled mine just before the best before date - I bought almost 2 years prior] A hazy dark amber beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is strong with strong notes of fruit - very sweet fruit almost like candied and somewhat overripe fruit - Iím in the direction of mango and oranges, but the aroma also contains some woody notes. The flavor is sweet and the mouthfeel very smooth - the carbonation creates the great head, but doesnít make it lively to drink, so it just glides down, until it leaves You with a slight alcohol burn on the back of the tongue and some fruity flavors on the palate. But before then the flavor contains strong fruit notes - again very sweet fruits - like just before turning over ripe - I detect peaches, mango, and oranges.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Noticeably full yet fizzy mouthfeel with citrus/spice machinations and a hint of banana, perhaps mustyhay (lingering slight sourness) and corriander, a multitude of other random acidic fruits (berries....kiwis?) but I can taste the alcohol. Pity.

"Rather different for this style, light color. Was creamy but still thin. Critus smell banana. There was a good amount of carbonation. Sweet flavor."
