phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
A pretty tastey brew, lots of spice and peppery flavors. Has a little bit of sediment at the bottom which I swirled around and dumped on top. Aromas are a little hidden, nothign really jumped out other than sweet bread, like bannana bread. And plenty of fruit in each sip.

dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2008
This beer pours a golden amber with a medium white head with lots of yeast floating in the glass. The aroma is sweet and biscuity. Seems kind of an odd combination. The flavors are slight fruit (grape?) and I can’t place the other flavor. This is an o.k. beer but for a belgian I’ve had way better. Cheers!

This is an excellent Belgian beer that I always buy whenever one of my friends takes a trip to Belgium. It helps to have connections! I have my own proper Kwak glass to drink it in, too. It’s a good color with a nice vanilla/caramel finish. It’s smooth on the palate. Hard to believe it’s an 8% beer. It goes down SMOOTH!

darkguardian (733) - Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours a awesome looking burnt red color with a foamy creamy head light tan in color. Leaves a small head for the duration. Nose is slight sour with notes of plum and bananna touch of alcohol. The taste is sour plum up front with a somewhat thin palate but a awesome lingering finish of vanilla caramel. This seems like it was maybe oak aged it has that woody vanilla taste. A very very underated and tasty brew.

Pours caramel brown with light tan head. Nice bread dough aroma. Sweet malty flavor with Belgian yeast. Thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel with minimal carbonation. A good BSA.

Tmoney99 (14963) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus yeasty aroma. Medium body. Flavor was full with sweet yeasty tone and spices with a moderate sweet finish and small alcohol bite. Good brew.

3.6
tomer (3737) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 21, 2008
0.33L bottle. Amber red colour, a little hazy, almost no head. Rich aroma of malt and fruit, presence of banana and some earthy notes in the back. Flavour of malt and citrus, quite dry at the beggining but becoming sweetish, leading to a sweet aftertaste. Carbonation is strong but pleasant enough and the beer is extremely drinkable.
