COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
9%vol. 33, 75 and 150cl Beer very amber in color, strong, nose fruity and delicate, soft and round with the palate; slightly hopped but correctly spiced (roasted chicory, coriander, and sweet orange peel, among other ingredients). Bottle fermented and complex. On the Port-y side fresh. Spiced distinctly with orange, corriander and chicory. Should cellar nicely.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAR 1, 2004
Pours redish/brown with little head, even after trying to coax it. Yeast spice well balanced with malt sweetness. Effervescant but not over carbonated. No lacing. Overall an above average example of the style.

Crockett (1028) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
Pours hazy red/amber, tiny soapy off white head. Aroma is of berries, yeast, grapes, flowers, and mild alcohol. Does smell like a fruity wine. Loads of red berries, yeast, and a hit of pepper. Quite light in body.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2004
hazy orange, big off white head. yeasty, alcohol and mixed dried fruit aroma. flavour is sweet and fruity with boozy hints and mild earth and spice. an average beer that stangely enough comes to life if paird with foie gras.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 330mL bottle. A golden ale with a sweet and slightly spicy aroma. Fruit, caramel, and candy sugar flavours that are largely unrestrained by hops or spices. Overly sweet, with a vaguely unpleasant artificiality to it all. A commercial interpretation of the style that disappoints, although it would probably appeal to those unfortunate people who enjoy syrupy-sweet beers. Not a bad beer, but not a good one, either.

Radek Kliber (6589) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 26, 2004
Aroma to sweet and light for a decent Belgian. Thin body, almost watery. Ni malt base , a lot of spice , orange notes seem to be artificial . Complex, sure it is (enter here sarcastic voice of Radek).

GregClow (2951) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2004
Hazy orange-brown colour with a small, tight beige head. Aroma is warm and boozy, with a stong yeast character and some spicey notes. Flavour is also spicey (corriander & clove) and somewhat citric. The chicory really comes through towards the end, along with a hint of anise. Finish is dry and astringent. Quite decent.

Pours a hazy reddish brown with little head. Aromas of spices, a little citrus, and some sour yeast. Medium bodied. Citrus and spicey falavour. Not bad

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2004
Beige head that lingers nicely and leaves nice lacy streaks as it bubbles away from the glass after a swirl. Cloudy, bubbly deep orange colour with an unknown (to me) but interesting aroma. I liked the way it seemed to both clean and coat my tongue - odd I realize. Overall I enjoyed it but won't go out of my way to have this when I'm craving a Belgian Ale.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Absolutely no head and no carbonation really. It is a dark orange/red color not to far off a bloody mary. Very yeasty aroma with a touch of spiciness. The flavor is yeasty also, with some spice and sourness as well. The mouthfeel is really weird with so little an amount of carbonation. Not all that impressive, although I'm guessing this bottle isn't an ideal sample.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2004
Hazy brown colour with a red tint. Thin and quickly diminishing off-white head. Yeast and dark bread aroma, with slight citrus notes. Candyish and sugary sweet flavours, finishing tangy and citric plus a faint dry alcohol bitterness. Medium bodied and dry with an astringent finish.
