Amber in color, malty, sweet, fruity with lots of taste from butterscotch and caramell. Quite typical for this sort of brew. Full pot in appearance due to the funny Kwak-glass everybody loves.

Mouthfeel is sweet alcohol too.<P>Português: Cerveja de cor marrom com espuma bege densa mas some rápido, aroma é álcool doce e frutado, sabor adocicado e presença forte do álcool. Retrogosto doce e de álcool.<P>

Dark orange color, just barely offwhite head with lots of big bubbles on bottom and egg white tiny bubbles on the top. Aroma of orange, caramel, yeast, dried fruit; similar taste with creamy finish, spice, flowers, a bit of alcohol, lots of dried fruit, quite dry.

Full-bodied Belgian Specialty Ale. Amber in color with beautiful foam and slightly sweet, seductive malt character. Rich, satisfying Belgian experience. Nice cherry wood colour with a tiny white head.Lovely malty, hoppy aroma and a sweet slightly spicy taste & unlike some other belgian beers this one doesnt have a massively bitter aftertaste. Sweet smell and taste, I thought that the alcohol was covered up pretty well. This is a good intro to Belgian brews. Fruity taste: apple, pear, grape.

Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Pours a gorgeous amber orange colour with an impressive thick off white head. Aroma was quite sweet and somewhat malty with notes of yeast. Citrus, caramel, spice notes as well. I was happy to try it. Amazing and clever glass.....way to big to conceal on your way out of the bar.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Bottled. Poured amber with a dirty white head. Aroma was banana, yeast, and sweet citrus hops. Flavor was somewhat sweet with hops and banana. Very solid body. Similar to Urthel Hop It.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2007
POurs deep golden with nice notes of malt and caramel. The malt deepens on the palate with more spice and a decent sense of hops. It finishes nice and rich.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Large dense off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Amber/orange color. Aroma of spice, dough and pear. Tastes malty sweet at the onset then more spice comes out in the medium finish. Not very "hot" at all, medium bodied. Has almost a brandy like quality as it warms.
