Adjust your expectations!! This is a very unusual beer and you need to be ready for it. The spicing is very intense but with a little (very little) accommodation the mature taster will love it. Not for food, not for piling up a case next to you to watch the hockey game -- but amazing taste, finish and lingering warmth. Spectacular.

A clean yellow golden color. Strong aroma, the alcohol is in there. This is a nice strong tripel with a fruitiness to it. The spices are underlying and do not overwhelm. A nice belgian style brew.

Wow! is all I can say about this beer. The aroma of this wheat beer knocks me off my feet. Wheat beers ordinarily dont have the tastiest of aromas but this one is great. The unfiltered style of this beer is visible immediately after the first pour. If you want to compare this to a mainstream beer it would be like blue moon but much better. It knocked me off my feet when i realized that this beer has 9.5% alcohol. You would not know at all! This beer is probably not the best beer Iíve had but holds a special place in my heart. The wheatyness of this beer is very apparent and other slight spices of east come out as you drink deeper and longer. I would drink a bathtub full if I wouldnt die after the first six pack!

Very nice aroma, of spices and fruit. Pleasant taste although the alcohol is apparent. Great golden color, will drink it again.

Bottle from Safeway, Shirley, West Mids. Hazy gold, with a thin, but sticky head. A solid honey and lemon flavour - super smooth ad tangy. A breathy alcohol strength on the finish, but on the whole ghostlike in itís restraint. Sweeeet.

(Draught) Pours a medium, white foamy head and a slightly cloudy amber body. Nose is somewhat yeasty and lemony. The flavour is lactic, hoppy with undertones of apple sauce. Good.

Vintage í00: Infected --> poored it out.
Vintage í02: Very hoppy and bitter! Mild though with a smooth sourish mouthfeel and finish. Small head and amber colour. Fresh sourness in the aftertaste.
