Light brown with tan head. Bubbly. Smells of deep caramel, a small amount of citrus. tastes also like deep caramel and a hint of alcohol. A decent beer. Brad (363) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Brown/Amber with nice light tan head. Aromas of caramel, lemons, brown sugar. Tastes sweet sugary toffee, malt, alcohol and metals in the finish. Lasting aftertaste waters the mouth. Still nothing compared to most Belgian Strongs. bob32256 (171) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2003
very little aroma, and virtually no head; cloudy brown in color; slightly sweet taste - the alcohol is better disguised in this one than in Huyghe's Delirium Tremens SirTom (89) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Not great. * Had this at a beer club meeting with many other beers, hence I don't remember all my comments - only the ratings which I wrote down at the time.

worst belgian EVER, i hope people do not even give this nasty wanna be excuse for a belgian beer a try. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2002
Murky dark amber with huge chunks. Tiny, dense cream head. Light carbonation. Fruity, yeasty, sugar cookie aroma with specks of light spice. Initially a whisper of carbonation, then mellow with a tasty dark cherry underbelly, soft honeyed sweetness and doughy malts. Hints of metallic sharpness are followed by a sour fruit aspect. Medium body. This falls apart quickly in the middle and I lost interest. Finishes thinner, yeasty, chalky but with a saving mix of sour fruit and sweet cookie dough. This is quite the strange little brew. Don't think it was the drink of choice on the movie set. Drinkingdan (375) - East Norriton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2002
On the light side for a Belgain Strong Ale, but it is enjoyable and worth the try. booyaatribe (453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2002
Very spicy, but not much to recommend it other than that. The bottle looks cool. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 6, 2002
Other reviews of this beer say it's mild and light. I thought FireFox still had some malty punch. Didn't care for it much, though.
