750 ml bottle. Golden red body with a medium beige head. Sweet malty, spicy and some yeast in aroma. Sweet flavor, some alcohol, malt and fruit. Nice, complex but somehow not the most balanced beer around. Nevermind, it gave me some Christmas feeling. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
The color is a clear deep copper with just enough cream-colored foam to cover the surface of the beer. The head then recedes to just a ring, which produces moderate lacing. There is a medium maltiness in tha aroma, with some toffee and a definate strong alcohol scent.
The flavor is sweeter than the aroma suggests, with more toffee, dry stone fruit, and raisin. A mild spicy presence rounds out the finish, I’m guessing a combination of spices, hops, and the yeast produce the effect.. The body is medium, with very gentle carbonation. I would have liked more dark malt flavor. Alcohol is prominent in the aftertaste. beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2007
11.2 Oz Bottle-03/06-Pours a dark golden color w/ a slight head. Typical Belgan aroma-floral, fruity, spicy. Tart, sweet, spicy up front flavor, follows w/ a malt finish. Traces of dates/figs/raisons, maybe a little bit of green apples. Has some pop to it, don’t really taste the alcohol, but you feel it. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours with a two-finger creamy head that goes very slowly and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Clear amber color. Nose is prunes and alcohol. Starts sweet becomes spicy, prickly finish. Alcohol aftertaste. $8.99 for 750ml bottle from Tulley’s Beer and Wine Wells, Me. shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2007
750ml bottle, 2004. 2 years old. Orange/amber pour with floaties and a white creamy head. Aroma is fruity and slightly sour. First taste reveals the nutty, spicy character. The alcohol is noticeable but hardly dominant. A very nice spiced up Christmas sipper.

Neat beer. I really like the Tremmens, and this added the spice to it. I could not drink that much of it, but for a small amount, I really enjoyed the unique flavor. Stefano (2007) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2007
Poured a dark ruby red color with a small white head. Aroma is spicy with a sweet malt. Citrus, malt, caramel and licorice in the flavor. Medium bodied with a hot alcohol finish. Some lingering earthiness on the tongue. Not bad but not great.

Flavors in line with aroma, though fuller. big sweet lght to caramel malts, apple cider tart, cinnamon, fruity finish and tart aftertaste, balanced and tasty. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2007
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Great labal slightly above average beer. Deep amber color with one finger head. Candy, sugar, caramel. Not bad but no maudite thegreenrooster (4400) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Pour is a nice red when held up to the light. Lots of floaty yeast made it into my glass. Aroma is a nice mix of candi sugar, caramel and cherry wood. Flavor is more of a cranberry with wine and vinegar aspects. Alcohol is hidden well as there is a burn not nothing to bad. Tasty but still not the best Belgian as this is just a touch too sour.
