I feel like this beer would be better served with more extreme tastes -- more sour, more bitter, more whatever. Interesting, pleasing clean aroma with citrus and wheat. Taste is a more watery version of that. By the end of the big bottle I’m going to be feeling much better about this one, but on the whole not worth what you have to pay for it. douglas88 (9194) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a quickly dissipating head. The taste is a mix of citrus and yeast. Of course there is a great alcohol element, and a really nice aftertaste. misseclectic (2) - USA - SEP 20, 2007 does not count
This beer will knock you on you *ss! Hence the name, as after 2 or 3 you will start mildly hallucinating. Wonderful taste which is different on the tip of your tongue, in the mouth and after you swallow; much like a good wine. pjf (9) - USA - SEP 17, 2007 does not count
bottle, this was a joy from start to finish both taste and color are excellent. a top ten in my book MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a particulate filled hazy light orange amber with big lightly creamy white head and fair lacing. Nose is pretty much all yeast with only a hint of malt and light spice. Smooth, with that tiny bubble active carbonation that is so pleasant. Flavors are kind of spicy with notes of white pepper and cinnamon, sweet with malt, almonds, pear, orange, and bears an alcohol presence. Finish is moderately bitter and breaks off clean leaving a desire for another sip. This is far from world class in my humble opinion, but is quite nice and if it were cheaper I’d drink it again.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 Bottle. Nice sweet and citrus aroma. Flavor was spices, sweet citrus, maybe a little banana. badnloose (111) - North Hollywood, California, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Ceramic bottle. Great pour with a long-lasting white head. Citrus and wheat aroma, repeated with the taste. Utterly delicious with a perfect smooth finish. Alcohol content makes the whole deal even better. DowntownGator (22) - Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Full bodied well rounded high alcohol brew; alcohol presence is almost hidden behind malts and gives it a pleasant lingering finish. Slightly amber in color, good head retention; a brief rest will bring out its smoothness. Love the bottle. Goodgrief (2028) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Beer poured a light color, a little darker than a trippel. I thought this was a trippel while drinking it...but see it classified as a regular Belgian strong. Flavor was very "trippelesque" with a hint of saison "wildness". Flavor was sweet, apples and spice. Not overly sweet, some mild hop presence and a finish which had a citrusy tartness to it. Mouthfeel was ultra-carbonated. I was liking this brew. RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Cork reads 2006.
Pours cloudy gold with a white head. Very yeasty nose with a slight sweet and citric edge to it. Eck. Flavor is bordering on extremely tart, though on the second sip, you are used to it. Smooth and even, though it exhibits a very strong alcohol presence. Feel is just where you want it. Though the drinkability suffers due to the more extreme noticibility of the alcohol involved (that is not masked as well as it could be). Been waiting to try this one for some time, and it is good.
