Got this in a trade, and, unfortunately, I cannot remember who from. No date info on bottle. Poured extremely haze orange amber. Thick, there is stuff floating in this. Aroma of fruit. maybe even cherries, and some yeast. Off white head left good lacing. Flavor is a bit off, I think. For an 8%, I don’t taste any of it. Saved this for a good day. not bad, nothing to invade troy over, but nice. There is a sweet warming at the end. Glad i got to taste this, ( retired) Tejas (1008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Flat - no head. Yeasty / apple flavor. Crisp & dry to the palate. Too much debris(yeast) for my liking. Can’t put my finger on it but there’s something about it that I don’t care for. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2005
(750ml bottle) Pours an amber body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of raisins, cheese, and fruit. Flavor of sweet malt, caramel, and grapes. DYCSoccer17 (3712) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Best before Oct 7, 2004. Sort of peppery yeasty aromas with mild citrus notes in there as well. Not really digging the smell too much. Honey orange color with lots of suspended yeast floaties and a smallish white head. Sort of a peppery bready start turning somewhat doughy with lots of sweetness to finish. I don’t know...this one is just sort of bland. Alcohol is hidden very nicely though. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2005
(Best before 13.5.2004) Dark orange color, somehow cloudy color, medium beige head. Yeast in glass is obvious. Sweet, safty and yeasty aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is nice: caramel, sweet, mildly yeasty and spicy. Caramel lasts pretty long with notes of licorice in aftertaste.

Disappointing top-fermented barley beer, now withdrawn. Poured a rich amber colour with plenty of sediment and a fair-sized head that left a trace of lace. Melon notes in the ripe, fruity aroma. Some toasted malt. The palate is a little thin for the alcohol. It has winelike characters and a surprisingly gentle spicy finish. Brandy-like notes. Carries the alcohol well but it’s a little short on muscle. (Bottle) steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Pours dark amber colour with a fine head. Nose has some cherry aroma. Flavor is very malty, bitter, very fruity with notes of sour lemons. Nice spicy finish - warming and very pleasant PorterPounder (8316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2005
11.2 oz bottle - Whip In Liquors, Austin., Tx. Pours a sediment filled dark orange with a thin, barely there white head. Aroma has some sweet notes, pick up bananas, some cloves and other fruits - overripe nectarines perhaps. Flavor has a canned fruit cocktail essence to it, kind of sweet but muffled. Nothing really jumps out - faint traces of peach, honey, and apricots. Mouthfeel is nice and sticky. Alcohol hidden well. Overall, a decent Belgian.

A deep golden color this beer is. Why am I sounding like Yoda? Well the aroma is quite floral with honey and caramel. The flavor is borderline cloying with some sticky honey, caramel, and cloves. This one has some basement dust stuff going on. Hmmm this one isnt anything really exciting at all really. MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2005
Coriander and honey fumes over a spring vegetable garden.
Maple syrup runs over the weak yeast. A drop of milk chocolate and a coriander leaf go well together, but cannot retrieve the tired unity.
