This golden Belgian ale will mystify you with its medium body, its subtle malt and hop profiles, and its complex blend of spices. Fruit flavors, produced by a special strain of Belgian yeast, combine with Belgian candied sugar, chamomile, grains of paradise, and cardamom to create an unfiltered ale so intriguing, youll never want to get to the bottom of the mystery ... or your glass.

jnkor (364) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Aroma is spiced but lacking much else. Kinda of a soap edge. Poured an orangish yellow with a white head and very clear. Taste was also spiced and like soap, and not much else. Would be better with more malt, more yeast notes, more hop, etc. Palate was watery, not at all bad, but not too memorable.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - APR 19, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a honey amber color with a two finger whitish head with good retention and lacing. The nose is sweet and spicey, with a good bit of clove and brown sugar. Herbal and spicy up front with touches of cracked pepper and cardamom. Hints of apple and pear with assorted fruit sweetness. Belgian yeast creates a soft funk, followed by a milder malt backbone. Light to medium body, high carbonation, and dry on the tongue.

Emeister84 (2298) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2013
Aromas of cardamom, tea, grains of paradise, floral hops, and lemon. Golden copper with decently lasting, white head foam. Dry, floral, herbaceous, and with a snappy bitterness. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, spicy, and finishes with a clean citrusy and earthy flavor.

ermahgang (6) - Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2013 does not count
Wow, intense aromas on the poor. Spiced indeed! Unfortunately this is not matched by the taste. Smooth and drinkable, but flavor profile is lacking. Hints of spice and ginger, but guess I expected more of a smack in the face after that aroma.

This beer to me was not backed by enough malt. Slightly spiced with a small belgian finish

kramer (6491) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light copper body under a small fizzy white head that fade to a thin covering pretty quickly. The nose is intensely spicy with a lot of herbal character, floral notes, and some light Belgian yeast. The flavor is just a little too over spiced for my tastes. Theres a lot of camomile in here and it overpowers much of the benefits from the yeast that they used. Its much more like drinking herbal tea than a beer. Light bodied and with very fizzy spritzy carbonation. I think this clearly belongs in the Spice/Herb/Veggie style, cause theres nothing that says Belgian Ale about this beer. This one doesnt do anything for me.

Bottle. Deep gold, light head, medium body, a bit slick. Spiced aroma with a little sweetness. Overall okay.
