Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, sugar, slight white fruit into a bit of bread, biscuit, slight yeasty notes. Taste was mainly sweet, some bread, sugary, fruity notes with a hint of spice, finishing sweet, slight booze. Drake (13649) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Ann Arbor Eisenhower, 3/22/16. Hazy amber with a thin off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma of bubblegum, banana, citrus, lemon, yeast, bread, candi sugar. The taste is bubblegum, yeast, berries, banana, citrus, dandelion. Medium bodied, mild booze, lingering spice, low carbonation. Need a bit more body, but solid. rondphoto (4383) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 15, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of earthy malt. Cloudy dark amber color, off-white head that quickly drops to a thin rim, a few globs of lace. Taste is over-sweet malt that moves through light fizz to a bracing (for this brew) tart and hoppy finish. Seems a little off - on the one hand, too much sweet, on the other very little going on, which makes it seem past its "best by" date. Not a keeper in this form. cheap (5796) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Mild sweet candy aroma. Pale, from a bot. Big strong abbey and alky initial taste impact. Whew. Could aging settle this down? Volatile boozy alky effects all round. Medicine. Can not be in same style as Het Kapittel Watou Abt, pretty funny, heheheh. Ferget 10%, this stuff fumes like 15! DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2016
12oz bottle. Musty, bready biscuity aroma up front. Mild fruitiness. Belgian yeast. Touch of apricot. Some white grape. Caramel. Hazy darker amber color. Ring of bubbly white head. Some loose bits of lace. Kind of bigger body. Mild slick texture. Light carbonation. Kind of bigger sweet taste, light to moderate spicy. Some mild alcohol warmth. Some nice banana bread kind of character comes out. Solid despite being a bit maltier than typical, gets better as I go, initial mustiness fades quickly. Nice to enjoy with my Dave’s Hot N Juicy (to be clear, that’s the name of a burger from a popular fast food chain).

Bottle at home shared with Randy. Pours a clear golden. Aroma is spicy and yeasty. Some malt. Flavor is strong lots of malt peppery. Alcohol in noticeable nice beer not a bit overpowering.

pours unclear bright golden with a nice white cap showing offering some retention and shy lacing patterns. sweet honey and belgian yeast upfront, doughy sweet honeyed malts, very spicy - pepper, but also cloves, nutmeg and other indian spices, boozy and hot, some fruitiness - relatively linear though - white grape juice perhaps, some woodsy notes - vanilla is fairly present, grass. lively to average carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky; semi-sweet and herbal-grassy-spicy lightly astringent finish. decent interpretation. beardybeachbum (1) - Fort Pierce, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2013 does not count
I’m a big fan of belgian style ales. This has a good aroma to start. The color has a nice darker hazy look with a good amount of vizable carbonation. The taste is malty with a good amount of spice and a bit of sweetess that makes this a good beer to sip. The finish is slightly tart but it makes this beer very drinkable since you keep going back for more. I love to drink this with a hearty beef stew.

Draft with a meal. Tangy, sweet and sour, balanced with spice. Confused my palate a bit, but not bad. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Draft at soup spoon. Slightly hazy light gold pour with almost no head. Sour banana and a hint of bread aromas. Banana, clove and sugar. A little bit dry
