UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 2008 Bottle:
Lightly hazed orange with a plume of yellow foam. The head lasts forever. A very fuddy yeast nose. Slight lemon and fresh herb aromas too. Seriously creamy and full flavoured. Crisp and light, refreshing and toffee flavoured. Tingly spices and burnt sugar. Darned delicious, restrained and easy.
Tap @ The White Horse:
Brown/orange with a ring o’ white head. Sweet candy aromas with a fruity twinge. Beautifully heady lemon and yeast flavour. Perfect smoothness with a slight tingle in there. Possibly my favourite Belgian style USA beer? jbuzz (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2009

pours hazy golden, white head.
Aroma is funky, bready and yeasty.
Taste, sweet, bready malts, some caramel, fruits, sour can be noted and some hoppy notes. peter48er (186) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2009
12 oz bottle, at home. Poured mahogony brown with a small off white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of fruit and a distinct yeastiness. In the mouth the warmth of the alcohol allied with a lingering bitterness and the fruity taste made this a most acceptable beer,very much in the Belgium style.

Bottle. Medium high fluffy but lasting white head. Hazy amber body. Apple pear peach banana aroma, lovely. Heavily carbonated fruity dry hops bitterness with a dusty note. Long bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is there but hardly notice. What a nice surprise. Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2009

Bottle 12oz - 2008 versie. Thumps up for the label design - its old school and prestigious. The pour is sparkling and tataly clear deep orange.The head was lightly orange but fades very quick leaving only a shade on the surface. The nose is malty and with dark notes of fruits, yeasts and pineapple. You can easely tell the belgian inspiration by the nose. The taste is realy good but with a bit harch an anonymous finish. The palate is medium to lightly creamy. The taste has some raisins and maltflavours, I also taste some tropical fruits like starfruit (is it called that in english) and pineapple and some orange-peel. Not bad at all Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 23, 2009
UPDATED: APR 24, 2009 12oz bottle bottle sample at Peculiar Pub 4/22/09. Lots of tasty yeast, coupled with sugars and belgian spices, similair to La Fin Du Monde. Soft and silky mouthfeel makes this very sessionable. Far less aggressive than Pere Jacques, which I sampled before this but equally well crafted 3.95 thewolf (12932) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 19, 2009
Bottle from LIVA, Kolding. [thank you, Feldthaus]
Pours hazy golden with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has oranges, bready malts, some biscuit, green apples. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly orangey tart, lots of biscuit malts, some hoppy, fruity dryness. Long, lingering, slightly hoppy aftertaste. Fine.
