A swirling fury of carbonation hides beneath a deep, dense head. Yellowish-tan in colour, the body is soft, hoppy, and spicy (coriander). The finish is mellow with the spicy character of Hallertau hops

75cl bottle from the supermarket. Cloudy orange/amber leaving sheets of white lacing . Aroma of "Froot Loop" cereal, yeast (banana), flowers, and apple with some spice notes. Flavor of lighty sweet bready to biscuity malts with some light citrus. Mildly spicy finish. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Prettty good global Belgian strong ale--Nice golden fruity character with a spice profile that’s restrained and complimentary. Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottled (750ml), gift from Michael and Anjoo.marcbé (86) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2007
Golden, pretty beer with an attractive, shiny white head. Spicy, uplifting hop flavour. Progressive flavour with real complexity. Really enjoyed this beer, particularly for the depth of flavour that I had forgotten was possible (currently living in Barcelona).
(La grande Chouffe, 1500 ml, best before end of 2000) Hazy orange color white head. Quite fizzy for a beer that old. Nose of apple, cookie and Grappa. Oily texture.Taste only of apple, no bitterness, notes of acidity and soft sweeteness. I should have drink it four years ago, but interesting. mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. Large, white, rocky head into semi clear dark golden body with plenty of sediment action. Great lacing. Pear, honey, yeast, corriander, and perfumed notes are all present in the aroma. Flavor is sweet from start to finish. Lively carbonation. Different than most...not strong on the yeasts but still a strong brew.
Grovlam (4211) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle. Large fizzy white head that mostly lasted. Clear sparkling golden color. Yeast, coriander, fruit, perfume, spice. Medium to full bodied with a lively carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor with some spicy bitter alcoholic notes. Warming sweet finish. UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Delicate aroma. Spicy with hints of mild clove. I could not drink a whole glass of this. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2007
750ml bottle pours golden with a big foamy white head that stays quite well and leaves some lace. Good aroma of apple, pear, and some spice. Flavor is yeasty, apples and pears come to the tongue as well, a touch of corriander and other spice on the finish. Medium bodied with a very crisp well carbonated palate. Alcohol is well covered.. Good brew. oberabcbbsok (692) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2007
Tasted it as well from draft as from bottle. Fruity and a little sweet, but very balanced and really good. Mike4686 (120) - Bayonne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2007
