A warm flavoursome beer that is sophisticated and distinguished with complex spicy, fruity and malt tones. Definitely a favourite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ill say this, it doesít taste like a belgian, and doesnít taste like a pale ale. It pours a dark caramel amber color. Like a Disaronno brown. Doesnít leave much of a head. I poured this beer expecting a a belgian yeasty smell or a hoppy scent, I got neither, but was instead greeted with this banana bready caramel aroma which I quite liked, The flavor was much the same. If they marketed this as such I think it would get some better attention.

Surprisingly enjoyable change from the usual hoppy balance pale ales. The best brew Iíve had from this brewery - and good enough to make me re/try some of their other beers (again).

Tasted on gas flow from The Brewery, Chch. It appeared much lighter than the colour on the Wigram website, tending toward lightish gold with a fluffy white head that sat and endured - no mean feat for gas flow. It really was a good looking beer. The aroma was so typically Belgian with aroma of basement, sour lemon and grassy perfume all at once. This was consistent with the flavour which also had good fine tingly bubbles in its mouthfeel. In terms of flavour it wasnít a massive shock of spritzy Belgian ale, but was more restrained and had a pub ale feel to it. Iíll be honest and say it isnít the most remarkable, but then saying that it has all the hallmarks of a consistent quaffing ale (if you quaff 6.6% beers as I sometimes have been known to do to my detriment). I rather liked it.
