Amber and slightly hazy. Smells a little bit plasticy with light orchard fruits. Has some phenols with alcohol, very light fruit and some mild hop spice. bhensonb (15974) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Warm, caramel malty aroma. Light amber color with a vigorus off-white head. Thin to medium in body, with a very mild carbonation. Starts with sweet caramel malt, offset with something like n-amyl acetate. Light belgian spice notes. A little heat. Something like hop offsets the malt. The finish is dry and "sweetly astringent". A little floral/veg hangs around. Perhaps some vanilla arrives at the end. Interesting, tasty, and very drinkable.

Bottle from Belmont Party.
Poured cloudy orange brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate spicy apple and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet warming finish of moderate duration.
Good brew and my expectations where met. crossovert (14135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Pours a nice amber/honey color with a decent quickly dissipating head.
It smells very fruity with apples, peaches, a hint of pineapple. Like juice, there is just enough yeast to make it smell beery.
The taste is very much of caramel, with some yeasty twang. The mouthfeel is a bit on the watery side, though the carbonation is there, it seems the malt flavors come off a bit watery, while the fruity yeast hits home carried by the carbonation.
This is a basic Belgian Strong Pale, there’s nothign distincitvly wintery or Christmasy about it besides the fruity scent.
