Im new to the beer rating, so forgive me for not having this down very well. One of the better beers Ive had. Light and citrusy. Very strong flavors. It was only very slightly bitter to me. Very tasty, and Im finding out not all that common where I live.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2008
Oak, caramel, and scotch nose. Hazy amber. Long lasting head, nice lace. Sweet malt, caramel. Some spice, heavy body, but carbonation and warm alcohol gives it a long smooth finish. Yeast flavor not as pronounced as other Belgians, but really nice beer.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2008
Amber with a fine sized head. Sweet malty caramel aroma, nice but a little weak. Caramel yeasty flavour, nutty some hop balance and a gentle tart sensation. Quite a nice beer, and more than just an unusual glass

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Botle. 330ML. Pours a reddish amber with creamy off white head. Aroma is yeasty and malty with a harsher metallic touch to it. Flavor is moderately sweet with a nice maltiness and caramel quality laced with an undefined spiciness. Finish is very alcohol dominated and lightly veg sweet leaning towards unpleasant but with too much of a belgian quality to ruin it completely. Palate is nice all around with an active and light carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Cant get over this overbearing metallic flavor though as well as slight astringency in the finish.
