copper hue w/ off white head. this brew is well balanced and rather quenching. seems to be too bitter and not fruity enough to be a belgian, but it’s a good beer all the same. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Candy sugar, mollasses, burnt brown sugar...not bad , but nothing very exciting. Some dried fruit notes. Drinkable but unimpressive. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Fairly one dimensional for DFH, but tasty. It’s all sweet malt, candy, and dark brown sugar - nose and taste. Syrupy to drink, there’s a slight alcohol kick in the finish, although this doesn’t have a particularly high ABV.pineypower (3347) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2005

Tap....sweet aroma off the bat, fading into a somewhat subtle complexity of some good malty flavors, but lacked any true depth that would set it apart. Tasted a lot more like scotch ales I’ve had, over a true Belgian style skisangelo (60) - Collingswood, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2005
Nothing assertive with this one. Flavor is mostly sweet, with a candied sugar flavor dominating. A bit of a spicy, peppery flavor right at the end. ABV is well hidden.

On tap in the brewpub in Rehoboth. This reminded me of a toned down version of the Raison d’Etre. If I had to depend on this for a reason to be, though, some days would be iffy. Not very complex, especially for an attempted Belgian, but all in all a very drinkable beer. braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Not a bad stab at a Belgian style, but definitely lacking complexity. Very light and drinkable. Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Just plain disappointed in this one. I thought my beer might have been bad, but it seems everyone else had the same sort of experience. Cletus (6353) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 26, 2005
On draught at Delaney’s in New Haven. Pours light and clear. Taste is on the watery side with a light hoppy taste. Not what I was expecting. This brewer can and has done much better in the past. Gachupines (1252) - USA - FEB 22, 2005
Light and refreshing, but not what I expected out of a belgian style ale. Clean at first, some hops and bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall, not as good as I was hoping it would be.
