This is one fabulous beer. Almost makes me want to become a monk. One of the single greatest beers in the world lives up to it’s reputation in every way.

i think my bottle might need a bit more aging. it tastes quite young to me. so i might re-grade this in the future.

The site seems to be right about this one -- 3.9 or thereabouts. Rather on the mild side with some moderate hints of complexity. Fruity in the flavor and subdued aroma. A little tart.

Pours a nice deep amber/brwon hue with a small tan head . Aromas of banana, love, a little pruney. Flavors of the same, but without much depth.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Bottle, Passage Cafe, Brugge, Belgium. On the red side of amber, with soft white bubbles. Slightly bitter aroma, with medium malt smells with some slight belgian floral characteristics. Taste is a little plain, but i believe it was served to me a little too cold. It took on more of that floral belgian tastes as it warmed up. It was bitter, slightly malty and fairly rich and floral. Somewhat full-bodied, lingering full-ness. A good, balanced belgian, but maybe a bit on the bitter side.

Bottled. Brown colour with beige/brown mediumsized head. Leaves nice lacing. Caramel and malt in aroma. Very fresh aroma. Fruity and malty taste with hints of hops. Aftertaste is made of citrus and hoppy bitterness. Very wellbalanced.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 28, 2005
This brown ale pours with a substantial tan head, eliciting a pleasant malty aroma. Starts with a heavy fruit and malt flavor, with a yet stronger candy and citrus finish. Very well balanced with just the right amount of carbonation.
