Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of fruit and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, alcohol, and honey, leading to a dry and spicy finish. Interesting. yespr (47430) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2009
CBF09. From tap. Pours cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is light spiced and hoppy. Light roasted too. Spiced and yeasty flavoured with a distinct hoppy and light spiced finish. Nice and simple Belgian ale. VTHopHead (1513) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAY 31, 2009
750ml - Pours a slightly hazy dark reddish brown in color with a foamy light tan head. No lacing. Aroma is Slightly sweet and yeasty with a nice fruitiness and some spices. Flavor is not nearly as sweet as it smells, but there is definitely some caramel and candi sugar present. Plenty of Belgian yeast with lots of fruit (plum, cherry, citrus). Some warming alcohol present too, but not overpowering at all. I really like this, but not quite in the same league as the top shelf "Belgians" (Belgian, American or otherwise).

Bottle #3038: I was about to rate this beer poorly, until I realized it was a Belgian Strong. Aroma is nice, just as advertised on the bottle: dark sugars and fruits, yeast and malt. Great color, very deep red and brown tones, off white thick head. First taste reveals the fruits though they are very dark, cooked. No citrus to speak of as the label suggests, but dark and bitter chocolate is available. Very high carbonation that scrubs away the taste, leaving the alcohol finish. Good for the style, maybe just not my style. dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Courtesy Ian. Pours a nice dark brown with a frothy tan head. Tart candi apple aroma. Sweet malt bitter, caramel and dark fruit taste with a surprisingly nice kick. Solid offering from Brooklyn.

There’s a nicely spicy quality to the aroma and there’s a bit of peppery alcohol sparkling through that blends well. Moderately sweet from the malt. Foamy mouthfeel from the carbonation. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with a thin layer of foamy tan head. Aroma is bubblegum, dark cherries, and spicey yeast. Flavor is brown sugar, raisins, plums, and a slightly roasted malt base. Warming finish. Overall, enjoyable. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
Mondial 2009, Montreal. Haven’t tried the Local 1 yet. This one is cloudy brown with a huge head. It smells like candi sugar, ripe fruit, caramel, and spice. The flavour mirrors the aroma, with the addition of something herbal. Slight bitterness and alcohol in the finish. Good, not great. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Cloudy dark body with a medium khaki head. Ginger bread with some milk chocolate. Taste is light gum and milk chocolate. There is also some rich pecans. Highly carbonated with a nice dry finish. radagast83 (8446) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2009
