2006 Bottle thanks to the generousity of Whaleman. This one gushed, no problem caught it in time to pure into the glass. Clear golden body with good size head and decent carbonation. Aroma was peppery, yeast. Reminded me of Fantomam Dark White. Taste had a slight peppery/spice to it. Good Belgian ale.

Pours a nice golden amber with medium head. yeasty fruity flavor. Pretty heavy in carbonation for the style but satisfying. One of the better Goose Island brews.

Lowe1983 (1544) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Pours a golden-amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of banana, spices, lemon, and yeast. Flavor has some grassy tones with huge banana, lemon and yeast flavors. A pretty good belgian style ale.

2006 Bottle - Gusher Alert! This thing went off like a firecracker on the 4th of July. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a a large foamy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of green apple, banana, some sourness, spicy, Belgian yeast, barnyard and a general overall fruitiness. Aroma reminded me of some of the Jolly Pumpkin beers (gushing did too). Flavor of Belgian yeast, spices, overly carbonated. Carbonation actually kind of covers up some of the flavors that are in here. As this one aired out I got more citrus, tropical fruits, very light sourness with some hop bitterness and on the dry side.

decaturstevo (5947) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2007
An aroma of clove and a bit of yeastiness. An almost orange pour with a huge foamy head. This baby continues to fizzle to the head 5 minutes after the pour. Just a hint of the clove in the flavor. Some apple tries to sneak in there ahead of the bitter. There is just a hint of an off flavor in this beer that keeps me from rating it a little higher in the flavor. The palate is like it should be except the faominess is a little soft. A good beer overall.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2007
12 oz bottle, 2006. Turned out to be quite a foamer. Caught me by surprise when the suds pushed out after uncapping. Fuzzy brown orange with a dense ivory head. Banana caramel; like a tripel in nose. Fizzy apricot and apple juice. Dries with sourdough bread and allspice.

Bottle. Pretty bland. Notes of honey and alcohol, but pretty nondescript overall.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Poured honey colored with a fluffy dirty white head. Some floaties were present. Aroma was yeast, floral notes, and sweet fruits. Flavor is sweet fruits, some orange peel, and a hint of cardboard. Finish is dry and floral.

im not a big belgian fan, so my apologies.... its a solid beer that is as authentic as an american over the top rendition could be. complex flavors from the belgian yeasts end in a nice bitter hop note, but not overwhelming
