Amber pour with a nice white head. Spicy, fruity aroma. Spicy, yeastly and a bit hoppy. This is an interesting twist on a strong belgian. Some banana, typical belgian flavoring, but definately different. It is a nice change, the 9% is hardly noticable. ragesaq (72) - Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Appearance: Pours a nice gold with light head and moderate lacing.
Aroma: Definately belgian, with a little spice and a fruity touch here or there.
Palate: Full yet light, moderate dryness, smooth feel but not too thick. Very nice.
Flavor profile: Similar to the Stone Vertical Epic 04, some hops, lots of belgian yeast, some peach and bananas, nicely spiced, touch of honey and sweet malts.
Overall: Pretty good, I will probably get this more regularly as it is quenching, not too expensive, tasty and just the right amount of alcohol. verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Pours a deep, cloudy golden body with a small white head. The aroma is citrusy, with sugar and alcohol. Nice but typical light Belgian flavor - spice, bananas, and honey. Effervescence certainly adds to the appeal of this brew. BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Bottle: Amber color with some nice ruby highlights. Has a small white head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma: honey, lemon, hops, lemon, nutmeg, apricot, peach, red clover, sweet malts. Taste: Light citrus & spices to begin with, sugary, clover, grapefruit, candy, yeast, and a bit of grass and orange. Medium bodied. Tasty, though does die out in the finish.

Golden orange w/ yellow highlights, slight head and no lacing. Honey and flowers w/ citrusy notes like pineapple and grapefruit on the nose. Soury fermented fruit and grapefruit tartness on the mouth. Tart and aggressive w/ loads of effervescence and a sweet aftertaste.

Orange. Very nice aroma of ripe, dripping apricots, citrus fruits, sweet malt and sugars. Sugary as hell in the flavor yet not cloying. Big, bursting fruity flavor with notes of tangerine, apricot, grapefruit and orange. Medium bodied but silky and smooth. A delightful beer. Odeed (1806) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 1, 2004

Pretty good. This was my first tasting of a Belgian Style beer. It went down easily and gave me a nice buzz. The taste was good, but a bit too sweet for me. It had a champagne like quality which I don’t really want in a beer. Good quality beer though. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2004
This one has several different flavors pounding on your tongue: sweet, bitter, fruity, and spicy. All combine in the finish to give you a warm feeling and enough CO2 to give you a good ol’ belch. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Somewhat hazy amber-orange brew with a touch of biege foam.Nose is splendid,with notes of hops,bananas and some other fruit :citrus.This is a wonderful brew to enjoy with your nose.Nice ,not sweet as I thought this might be,the hops and fruits work off each other nicely.Good body and lingering taste.
