COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sensual splendor in the form of a Belgian inspired ale of vast appeal. Wonderfully aromatic in its seduction of the senses. So simple in its creation, so magnificent in its maturity, this wonderful ale begins with Nature’s most humble offerings, water, malted grains and hops. Our soulful yeast breathes life and depth into each brew. The steady hand of time orchestrates this alchemy into the splendid ale before you.

750 ml bottle (2003). Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is mainly moderately sweet caramel malt with hints of fruit. The flavor is more caramel malt, fruit, and vanilla. This one shows quite a bit of oxidation and is past its prime. I only have a slight memory of what this was like fresh, but I know it was better.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2008
2003 vintage. Pours a transluscent orage cream colour with a dense off-white head that retains very well, fading slowly to a sudsy film. The nose is incredibly malty, with notes of tropical fruit, rich caramel, candi sugar, sherry and herbal hops. Some notes of oxidation are apparent, but not to the point where it significantly takes away from the beer. The flavour is vinous and malty, with strong flavours of sherry, caramel, overripe fruits and wood. Delicious. The alcohol presence is masked by the incredibly powerful caramel and fruit flavours that must have developed further with aging. The palate is slick and full with ample, but gentle carbonation. Herbal hops dominate the finish.

Bottled. An orange-amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty with just a touch of oxidation hitting the nose right at first, but then comes more powerful notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet mlaty with strong notes of alcohol, medium notes of over ripe fruits, as well as light notes of citrusy fruits and oxidation, leading to a dry bitter finish.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
Blind tasting at Papsoes place, another great session, thanks Henrik! Beer #13: Pours orange with a fully diminished off white head. Wineous and woody aroma, light salmiac note. Flavour is sweet, light yeasty and mild spiced. Light sweet and light yeasty finish. This actually works great flavourwise but not in the aroma.
