My first belgium beer consumed in Dec. 1978 before heading out to see "Its a Wonderful Life". It was wonderful also.Have consumed many more since then. Golden color with a lasting head that drinks deceptively easy for the amount of alcohol in it.

Bottle. A cloudy, deep golden color. Thick, lasting, creamy white head with foam that sits on top until your last sip. Sweet fruit aroma. Moderate to full body beer - creamy consistency. Taste is sweet then fairly warm and spicy. Heats up your throat a few seconds after you swallow - in a good way. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed - well be back to this one.

lukin013 (215) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Golden color and a huge white head that laces nicely on the glass. Fruity smell... rasperries, pears and maybe some apricot. Sweet tasting but not particularly complex. Surprisingly refreshing for an 8.5% beer.

snowden719 (130) - Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 Pale yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is clove, sugar, pear, yeast. Flavor is sweet, with fruit and clove notes. Finish is a bit bitter but not as bitter as delirium tremens but stonger than leffe. Has enough of a bitter kick to keep it from being too cloying. Nice warmth from the alcohol as you finish the bottle.

Wow. Smells like rasperries. Large head. Such a mix of interesting flavours, different in every mouthful. Fruity and sweet, and slightly bitter in the aftertaste. Even my girlfriend, a non-beer drinker found this beer to be delicious.

Pale yellow appearance, large head. The aroma is both reminiscent of a lager and of a wheat beer. The flavor, wow, pleasently herbal , sweet but not too sweet, a little sour. As for palate, this is the smoothest beer Ive had. An excellent beer, it is one of those I would recommend to any beer fan.
