I still think this is such a good laugh. It really does hide those 8% alc. so well. Huge fluffy head over a pale yellow looks fantastic in the proper glass with the string of bubbles rising neatly from the engraving in the bottom of the glass (would rate app. lower when in any other glass). Very smooth and actually quite nuanced. I got a bit of flowers, lots of fruits (banana, pineapple, green apples and something that might be kiwi) as well as that classic belgian yeast flavour.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2006
750ml bottle. Beautiful, slightly hazy golden coloring. 2 finger bubble-bath-head that slowly dissipates. Light, yeasty aroma. Distinctly sweet, fruity taste thats sharp and punchy. A pleasurable beer.

Bottle in Tallin. Great stuff. Amazingly complex without being all over the place. Near perfect finish.

One of the great Belgian beers. Very drinkable, which is an important issue for me. I could drink several of this one.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Pours slightly hazed pale yellow w/ full spritzy froth. Aroma is malty w/ candy fruit. Medum nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are slightly strong and fruity w/ a touch of tart on the finsh. Granny smith, banana, green stone fruit, and kiwi. Finish has a moderate bittering w/ slight alcohol. Not my favorite but very good none the less.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow gold with white head. Aroma is pears, apple, malt, and nutmeg. Flavor is fruity, malty, on the dry side.

Pours out a golden yellow color with a huge white head. Aroma is yeasty and slightly hoppy. Flavor is nice and nice and so what sweet. Over all a nice brew indeed.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Thanks to stegosaurus for this one. I got a nice bottle with a duvels glass. Pours a thick white strong head. Does not taste as stong as you would think with a 8% alc rating. Belgian yeast is apparent right away. Smooth on the palate. I do not like belgians but this was good.

Thick Golden head, fantastic aromas of allspice, fresh ground pepper, citrus... It has that typical belgian taste but made with the finest hops and yeast... Very complexe flavors... very good belgian!
