Beautiful color and appropriate head. Smooth yet hoppy with a slight spice to it. Floral hop notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

25 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy partial covering. The nose is pretty sweet and fruity with a noticeable alcohol component. A little bit of the dAchouffe yeast character coming thru. The flavor is very sweet with lots of candied fruits and a little more alcohol than I care for on the back end. Not the most drinkable due to the high ABV. Full bodied, thick, and pretty chewy with a good amount of fizzy carbonation. Not a bad beer, but not really a beer Id seek out based on my personal preferences.

Pour was pale orange color, smallish head. Aroma of honey and pear. The flavor was fruity with noticeable funky noble hops, some honey in the finish. Peppery spicing was moderate to high. Very trippelesque, but with honey thrown in. I enjoyed this one. Good beer.

Sampled on 10/22/2011. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a slightly hazy orange gold color from a 750ml corked and caged bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is fruity, peaches and apricots, sweet and yeasty. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity, sweet, apricots and peaches, yeasty and sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. Smooth taste. Hint of orange. Perhaps a touch of funk. Very drinkable Belgian ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Now this is one fine tasting brew! Yeasty, malty, sweet, spicy and a real nice bitter/hoppy bite on the finish that just seals the deal on this excellent ale. Creamy and slick, this brew is easy on the palate and devastatingly delicious. This brew is a tad difficult to find but if/when you do find it, stock up and enjoy!!

onceblind (8450) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2011
GABF 2011. Clear pale gold with a frothy white head. Musty aroma of basement yeast, floral and herbal hoppiness, and a pleasant blonde cereal grain note. Flavor is nice and blonde grainy, subtle bread yeast, and herbal hops. Nice big body with a complex hop tone, though no citrus. Mild maltiness with some light toffee. Overall a nice hoppy Belgo blonde.

750 ml. Golden body with a white, frothy head, mostly lasting. Nice aroma of lemon, toasted grain, herbs, pear, pepper, coriander, bubblegum, basement. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. The finish is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture and lively carbonation. A bit alcoholic, but a really enjoyable beer. Nice citrus twang wrapped in Belgian yeast mustiness. Tastes of light fruit, pear, flowers, light pepper.

Damn. Good. Beer. On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours an orange amber color with white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, and some very slight funk. Has a sweet grapefruit taste with some funk and a nice bitter layer. Excellent. Love this collaboration with one of my favorite belgian brewers.
