beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Pours cloudy dark bronze, with a head of large bubbles that fades very fast. Aroma is big alcohol upfront, with dark fruits and some candi sugar and malt backing it up. Body is suitable medium to thin for a Belgian beer. Flavor is very fruity, sweet malt, with some balancing hops, an d a bit of sharpness from the alcohol. Finish is sweet but not heavy or cloying.

Bottle. Has the floral accents that I enjoy in the Belgian beers. I can also taste a bit of the alcohol, which I also enjoy. Iíd buy this beer again.

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Bottle: Pours a hazy amber/brown with a large tan head that quickly fades to a thinner head with a crown. Spicy nose that is hard to pinpoint. The taste is spice driven with some malt. I get some nutmeg, coriander and white pepper. The mouth feel is lighter and more astringent than I expected but I donít get a strong alcohol presence. This is a nice beer overall but I would like to see more body and complexity.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Poured a deep chestnut color very thin creamy beige head. Smells very sweet. Full body malty somewhat peppery brew. Tastes very fruity almost cider like with a good amount of carbonation.

Cybercat (5247) - Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Aroma is strong, malty, with plenty of spice hints and even a bit of an odd, rubbery odor that still was not unappetizing. It pours out a dark amber-brown, almost the color of cola with a decent head. Flavor is strong and mouth-filling, malty and quite spicy, with a touch of hops. This ale is quite smooth but has a good bite to it.

JK (5861) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Bright gold color. The aroma has fruit and yeast. Quite sweet, with more yeast, some fruit, and salt. Fairly simple, but very good flavor and aroma. Nice, well carbonated palate as well.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2010 bottle. body is dark copper-red. Aroma is some fruitiness, taste begins as cigarette, but ends with some sort of fruit. Very Strange, not as good as i wanted it to be.

Good, a unique beer. Flavor is fruity and complex with some spices as well. Lightly carbonated and highly drinkable. The finish tastes like a cigarette, very strange.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Pours a ark blush color with a foamy head that dissipates into a lacing that lasts. Aroma consists mostly of cherries, honey and alcohol. Smooth creamy cherry taste with a decent alcohol presence and slight peppery finish.
