blankboy (7598) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2010
Draught at Benelux. Pours a deep brown along with some ruby hues and a small lasting creamy off-white head. Slightly mild aroma is malty and yeasty along with a bit of "metal" and fruit. Flavour of Belgian yeast, caramel malt, dark fruit and some light floral hops. Medium to full bodied. Pretty good but I expected better.

HogTownHarry (6566) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2010
At Benelux. Cloudy ruby with a solid lasting creamy beige head. Aroma is tantalizing - like a roasty/caramel Orval-y thing. Taste is nicely balanced between roasty sweet caramel, pungent floral/grassy bitterness and dry spice - hardly any alcohol at all. Sticky and slight astringent mouthfeel, a nice dry pungent and yeasty linger. solid stuff.

bedainedebiere (533) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2010
Tap at brewpub. Well-done strong brown belgian, comparable to some quadrupels I had but without the magnificience... Medium to full body, with more spicyness than sweetness and with a powerful herbal hop presence taking a lot of place in the mouthfeel. Notes of various spices and a discreet caramel touch. Nothing seems wrong but nothing is overwhelming neither.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2007
Draught. Red-copper with a ring of white head. Aroma is fragrant/perfumey - berries, cookies, and sweet spices. Lively carbonation. Heavy malt accents with some metallic characteristics. Reasonably palatable, just not something Id drink a whole lot of.
Sampled at the brewpub on June 1, 2007.
