The aroma was earthy peppery and lightly citrusy through the large bubbled moussy head. Pepper and a light tartness led the charge followed by sweetness and spice, light spice, coriander and perhaps cinnamon and clove. The beer poured clear golden with large globulous particulates into the chalice, a bit on the gross side but probably my fault in carrying the bottle. The flavor was nicely done with a sweet start which quickly dried out with pepper and a bit of menthol. The hop bittering was well achieved and even a bit of spicy hop flavor came along for the ride. The finish was just dry with a lasting impression of sweet malt and light spice into the aftertaste and beyond. The body was just above medium and the carbonation level was very high leading to a creamy impression on the palate. The warming post consumption was very high, yet the beer did not exhibit strong alcoholic tendencies in the aroma and flavor. A really nice Belgian Strong Ale! 750 ml corked and bailed bottle. $8.99 swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2007

Bottle. Light golden, cloudy. Decent - doesn’t taste strong. WAY overcarbonated. joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2007
strong carbonation with a golden triple like appearance. flavor has a sweet tangyness to it that finshes with a spicy alcoholic character. the final taste is a little dry and takes away from the overall experience because it lacks the depth. a good strong ale, but not top of the line Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Pale gold with a light haze, nice carbonation. Aroma distincltly bready, not much else, looks like a yeast bomb. Flavor introduces some lightly peppery spice, more bread, almost straight up yeast, and faint bit of honey sweetness. Didn’t get any of the fruit characteristics mentioned by many others. Having said that, enjoyable overall.

Bottle. (As Millenium 2000). [vintage 1999]. Bought @ Kulminator, Antwerp.vyvvy (6735) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Hazy orange with loads of small particulates. Head is light bubbly and thin. Aroma is sweet malty, a little port, light vinious. Extremely oily and low carbonation. Flavour is sweet, sticky, caramel, very vinious and warms all the way down. Light spicy finish. Great to try this aged.
Pours pale yellow with a generous sized white head. The aroma has white grapes and other light fruits, lots of yeast, very milky caramel flavors, sourdough and as much richness as cheesecake (but not the tastes). Medium / thin body that’s thinner than expected along with overly sharp carbonation. The taste starts over extra spicy with a bit of bread, booze, dry grapes and a touch of citrus. The finish is quite sharp and dry with bits of caramel. The flavor gets fruitier as it warms. A good beer, but not on the great level. redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Huge, very white head. Great pale golden/yellow color. I’ve had a handful of strong ales recently, and I have to say this one had the best flavor. Warming acidic zest flavor. 12 oz. bottle. Cobra (1100) - - SEP 12, 2007
750 ml. Belgian bottle. Corked & caged.
Best before 01/18/09. Poured out a hazy, straw yellow color, with a huge white head. The head is meringue like, stiff & fluffy. Aromas are of acidic malt, cherries, spices. Flavors are of spices, cherries, lactic acid, slight Brett qualities also. Medium body & mouthfeel. Spicy, tangy finish to it. Decent beer overall, but a little too lemony for my tastes. faroeviking (11220) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a big lively and creamish white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, spices and alcohol. Good champagne mouthfeel. The flavour has spices and banana, wheat, yeast, malt, alcohol and a pleasant bitterness. Good bit spiced bitter finish.
