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.

Perfumey aroma? Touch of alcohol as well. Hazy woozy amber in color. Thinnish body, tart in flavor, some alcohol. Sourish salty finish.

I was surprised to see this at the local LCBO in Brantford. Cloudy dark orangy brown. Beige head. Stong apple crumble aroma. Complex.

Tessic (1041) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2003
Pours slightly cloudy, not much of a head. Heavy aromas of flowers, purfume, malt and fruit with a little alcohol. Stong taste of flowers and cloves. Almost too strong. Heavy on the carbonation too. Not very good at all, very hard not to add to the kitchen sink!

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2003
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in Westmalle Trappist glass. Appearance is an orange and somewhat dirty brown colour with a light but sustained off-white head. Aroma is an intensely sweet licorice. Slightly bitter aroma exists also, but is over-powered by the sweetness. The taste is slightly bitter, with a bitter-orange finish.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2003
(o,33l bottle) Sampled Cochonnette. Pours a medium, foamy, almond head and a cloudy mahogany body. Nose of sweet, aerated apples, slight cherries and malt. Initial mute flavour that give a final tart push. Little finish. Good but in an experimental way. Very drinkable to rid yourself of a hang-over. What in God's name is the Pig doing with the towel to the left???

Hazy light brown color with no head. The taste is sweet with notes of fruits or berries. It finishes kind of sour and bitter.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2003
This beer just didn't quite fit the bill for a Belgian Ale in my opinion.It really tasted "off" its mark.There was virtually no head and there were fine sized bubbles that quickly dissipated.The body was very yeasty and cloudy with a copper hue.The nose was lightly sweet with a weird taste to it.The mouthfeel was tingly, smooth and medium bodied.The lacing was sparse.

This brew poured a small head of finely sized long lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a brown colored transparent body filled with floating yeast particles and a fair lacing. The aroma reminds me of a lambic but it is very small and light therefore hard to tell. The mouthfeel is smooth with a tingling sensation. The flavor is a bit off with a hint of something odd to it as well as notes of dough, mild alcohol and some other unidentifiable things. Not the greatest brew, but interesting.
