A very heavy beer. With the taste of alcohol, although not overwellming. Lot of taste and some bitter aftertaste. Drunk it both on tap and from bottle

bleeng (1669) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2007
In bottle at Erasmus Bruges. Pale yellow with small head. Spicy nose. Overpowering alcohol taste that rises above the spice and flavor. Reallly too much...

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Pours light golden with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of honey, pepper, cantaloupe, pineapple, higher alcohols, and apples. Taste is sweet, alcoholic, cantaloupe, cotton candy. Mouthfeel is full to heavy bodied with lush carbonation. Nice taste, but a bit heavy and too strong.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a good size white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma of sweet and biscuit malt with notes of citrus, honey, and yeast spice. Taste is the same as aroma but with a hot alcohol burn at the end. Medium mouthfeel with a mild bitterness. Could be a great beer but the alcohol burn ruins almost all of the good qualities of this beer.

Eructoblaster (4049) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2007
Hazy blond body with good carbonation and a decent white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with honeyish and biscuity hints. Wonderful and very well balanced taste that carries flowery and yeasty notes. Ends with a good warming biitersweet finish. Very good!

smartlung (159) - Valrico, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2007
bottle from Total Wine Tampa - very sweet and fruity, orange, coriander and other spices - maybe too sweet but pretty dirink and hides the alcohol

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2007
Pours a slightly hazed brilliant yellow w/ a modest spattered spritzy froth the recedes w/ haste. Residual lacing is modest aswell, NIL. Aroma is classic w/ banana malty sweetness and a mildly tart earthiness. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Texture is cottonous w/ a frothy expansion on the palate. Beautiful tropical banana cream malts w/ a mildly persistant acidic tart character. Kiwi, strawberry, pineapple, granny smith, vanilla, leather, earth, and a slight Flemish souring. I even caught a glimpse of cumin. Mildly sweet w/ strong flavors. Theres a pleasant brisk disposition. The finish is bittered w/ an acidic component w/ mild peachpit. The best thing is the retention of effers to the last sip. This brew actually gets a little boring after a while. I would suggest an 12oz serving instead of the 750ml I had.
