Belgos, and I have had enough of them to be understand the style, are certainly not my go-to beer, no matter how interesting the description. Not nearly the bomb it has been made out to be (partly the hype-machine’s fault), it isn’t an overly special beer either. Belgian styles are a rare treat for me and a time to reset and rejuvenate taste buds hammered with typical North American fury. It’s a light hazy, maple syrup/orange colour with a feel just softer than a sparkling white. Lots of aromas and flavours true to the style, burnt toffee, raisin, yeast, vanilla, bready rum pudding and dark fruitcake, wood, leather, bubblegum and basement. Nothing to really hate about here, just a pretty fine now-and-then-er.

Pours a clear pale gold color with plenty of fizz. Citrus, some hops, and a little bit of sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. I don’ t know, this one was just weird.

Reviewed 1-10-12 tranfer from BA -
Poured from bottle into champagne glass on New Years.
Appearance - Pours an orange color with large bubbles and a head that decayed quite quickly.
Smell - It was quite a sweet smell. Citrus fruits and some banana as well as a little bit of malty/bready smell.
Taste - Sweetness hits the mouth first. Some citrus and hefeweizen flavor. This is then subdued a bit by the alcohol.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation level was about right for a champagne, but a little off for a beer. So depending on what you are looking... The body was a little more thin then expected, but on par with something like a champagne.
Overall - More of a champagne with a bit of beer flavor. Not bad, but not really my cup of tea, and for the price not something I would likely do again.

Rated on 02-14-2012 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer has a medium sized very fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy golden body, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, sweet, fruity, spicy, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, citrus hops, fruity, spicy, malty, and boozy. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This is a sipping beer with a very good flavor. It is worth trying and it is a beer I would drink again.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma of spices, caramel and pale malts, light tartness, and some light fruits. Flavor the same. Average texture. Interesting beer but the not the best.

Dark brown color, rich roasty flavor. But to be honest, I expected something better
