Bottled (Courtesy of BBB63 - thanks): Amber coloured. Hazy. Dense light beige head. Cocanut, sweetness and light spices in the nose. Flavour as well has coconut and light spices. Is grapish. Very dry end. Quite refreshing.

Pours a cloudy dark amber, small tan head, but this beer is well carbonated. Great aroma, Belgian yeast and a general fruitiness. Just a touch of wood. Very interesting flavor. Quite sweet and fruity. There’s something else here, though. Can’t place it. Delicate on the palate, good body. Real nice.

25 oz bottle, via Sprinkle. Pours a dark amber with a fluffy and creamy off-white head. Lots of visible carbonation leads to amazing retention. Sugary sweet yet tart aroma, very fruity. Reminds me of a gueuze actually with that same old musty characteristic. Vanilla notes as well. Slightly tart and fruity flavor, with a lot of candy sweetness, yeast, and alcohol on the finish. Complex, vinous, and woody as a result of the barrel aging. Nice efforvescent carbonation, medium bodied up front with a little thinner finish. Very soft mouthfeel. Awesome beer all around, a truely unique and well crafted product.

Initially bright spicy light hoppy aroma. A whiff of milky sourness comes on. Medium sweet, medium to full bodied. Touch of wood, real bit of sourness, not enough to diminish the body, but it is definitely there. Very, very solid stuff!

dark reddish brown pour with a good head, slightly fruity aroma, but not very strong, spicy, fruity flavors, a bit like a sour ale, but not quite the same

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Thanks to Hatchy. Pours a darker hazy brownish amber with a medium off white head that laced nicely. Aroma was a bit light. Picked up vegetables, some spice, malty, caramel and a bit musty. Flavors of the same...kind of hard to explain. A bit sour and vineous.

jcr (2705) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Distinct flavor and aroma of bourbon. Cloudy brown pour with short, off-white head. The flavor, beyond the bourbon, had notes of overripe fruits — apple and cherry. A sweet beer with a tart to sour alcohol finish that’s short in duration. The body leans toward the thin side. The mouthfeel is fizzy. Not a favorite.
