Tasted at brewery, batch 19 (8 months old). Clear and dark golden with a creamy head. Aroma is lightly roasted malt and a bit of tang. Feels heavy, best to drink in a small glass. I can’t get all the flavors but there are a lot of them. Yay beer! ScottB (73) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Pours a hazy amber with a rapidly dissipating beige head. Sweet candiy nose. Drier in the mouth than I expected. Hints of dark fruit and candy are complimented well by a nice bitterness. Long slightly sweet finish. Dopplebock1538 (71) - Sanatoga, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2006
A solid effort! This brew trys to be alot of things. What they are, i do not know. What it does succeed in, is being very good. Not a suprise. Portland is one of the most under rated party towns on the map. millysdaddy (67) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy, golden amber with a very small off-white head. The aroma is very fruity - berries and pear - with a hint of vanilla and spice. The sweet maltiness comes through the strongest in the flavor but it’s not at all too sweet. Very well balanced and easy to drink. I like it a lot. phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Nice cloudy amber color with a full palate and mild smell.
Very good flavorful beer with some hops and a sour after taste.

Nice head, good bracing dose of hops wioth a slightly aggressive maltiness. Robust, yet not heavy. The spiciness is mild and does not dominate. This is the only Belgian ale I’ve ever had that could qualify as a good session beer. A good introduction to the Belgian styles for someone new to this end of the beer world. All around a very good, worthy beer. Willin8 (55) - Massapequa, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2007

Dark orange. White head. Some caramel malt nose. Taste of anise. Some fruits in finish. Light fruits. ChapelThrill (52) - California, USA - APR 25, 2009
Bottle - Lighter in color than expected... orangish golden color. Aromas of dried fruit, bread, and spices. Nice flavors of similar origin with an extra touch of yeast, and a slight sweet finish. Enjoyable belgian. Boesky (52) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Bottle. Deep mahogany, with a spicy, yeasty nose. Flavors of coriander, fruit, with a slight peppery smokiness. An excellent beer.
