A very hazy yellow/gold. Aromas of clove, bananas, and malt. Taste is spice, clove, and malt. Not bad, but nothing special. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Bottle. A nice belgian ale, not done by Belgians interestingly enough. I think it is a very nice representation of the style. True, I also think that Anheuser World Select is awful, but that’s on another level. Prepare to be PRANKED shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Pour is a hazy gold. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet flavor with a bit of sharp carbonation and a silky mouthfeel. I know that sounds contradictory, but thats what I think, so poop on you. Loddeer (171) - USA - OCT 6, 2004
Surprisingly refreshing variant flavors throughout ... a smooth crisp taste, with a brisk blast of belgian amber flavor. Maybe it has been a long day, but I am really enjoying this beer right now! jonas (7580) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2004

i am starting to really like this style. golden with some reddish hue. beautiful. some yeast in the aroma. a little harsh as first(pretty cold out of the fridge) but got better and better as it warmed. light fruitness and spicy. well done north coast.

A bit different, yes. Why isn’t this listed under Belgian Strong? Anyway, Orangey color reminiscent of I2PA, with a similar head and sticky lace. I like the smell and look of this and on taste it is quite complex, with sweet fruits as well as citruses coming through. Rather clean finish for a belgian with some hops and big malts right there behind the spice and fruit. A very nice beer. Odeed (1803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 24, 2004
the parnqster is good,but a bit different form most belgium style brews i have had.
a bit darker in color,and taste overall.but it dose capture the essence of the "begian style ale."at 7 bucks a 4 pack,i will be drinking this one again. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Cloudy orange color with a small white head. Spicy aroma with hints of citrus fruits, coriander and honey. Sweet and peppery taste, almost like bubble gum, that quickly fades to a smooth hoppy finish and leaves a sweet and peppery aftertaste.
