Bottle. Golden color, ample white head. This beer had an aroma of malt, mild spice and yeast. A clean flavor and finish. Good light drinking ale. blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2006
A gorgeous pour, huge lasting creamy head atop clear golden liquid. This beer is extremely fragrant. Aromas of flowery hops and some fruity citrus, perhaps orange. A very smooth beer considering the high alcohol content. Hints of pear or apple appear before a finishing dryness. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 Very good beer. Poured from bomber into oversized wine glass. Probably the best appearance I’ve ever seen. Started out clear golden with a thick white pillowy head with excellent lacing. As the bottle progressed, the appearance turned more hazy amber, still with the same head. Fruity aroma was prevalent from the beginning. Taste seemed a mixture of the fruit and also a hint of spice, possibly clove. The 8.5% alcohol was very discreet; present but not tasted. A great finish topped off a very pleasant drinking experience. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 26, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2006 Poors a golden yellow with a beautiful bloom of head. Extremely fragrant with flavors of orange, pear brandy, green apples and a slight, smooth dryness. Very drinkable. DeLongHooff (17) - Pheonixville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2006
Pours a pale golden with a big white head. Spicy and citris aroma. Had a champagne like mouth feel as it was was well carbonated and finished dry. Belgian spices and fruit taste. Good beer but not enough Belgian charactor that I have come to like in this style of ale. The alcohal is well hidden given the ABV.

I don’t mind saying that I’m extremely disappointed with this beer. This is the first belgian that I’ve had that I won’t ever drink again. I compare this one to a crappy american macrobrew. I don’t recommend this one at all. RonS (1) - Petersburg, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2006 does not count
750 ml bottle poured with a nice long lasting white head. Fine lace. Spicy, malty, earthy, yeast and citrus aroma with a complex flavor with a slight alcohol finish. Very refreshing and suprisingly drinkable for the ABV. johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2006
Golden and poured with a big head that took some time to dissapear.Slight bitterness and a strong presence of alcohol as you would expect.Slightly acidic but all round an impressive well balanced strong ale. Beerdedone (3401) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle first Belgian sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma of spices, citrus, yeast. Flavor is smooth, citrus, yeast, and sweet. vyvvy (6396) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2006
Aroma has a lot - pepper, earthy, light fruits, dough, spices and more. Pours light gold with a light looking white head that stays around for a while. Medium / full bodied beer with a medium carbonation. Taste is peppery with nice rich malts. The finish has lots of earthiness from the yeast and a spicy kick. Some of the alcohol lets itself be shown on the finish. Wonderful beer that goes down way too easy for ABV.
