Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Malty, yeasty aroma. Malt and yeast flavor with light dark fruit and light spice. Medium-plus bodied. Malt, yeast, spice, land ight fruitiness lingers. A bit too smooth. BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
On draft at PP Carlsbad.
Appearance is a clear and deep orange hue, minimal white head, moderate lacing on the glass.
Smell is sweet light fruits, honey, floral hops, honeysuckle, orange blossom, raisins, belgian yeast, spices, sweet malts.
Taste is an initial blast of honey, pear, floral/grassy hops, and Belgian candy, quickly transitions to underlying sweet bread malts, finishes dry and overly bitter.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, watery thin texture, high carbonation levels.
Drinkability is very good, this is a flavorful Belgian with good malt/hop/fruit balance, points off for texture and strangely bitter aftertaste, regardless I still almost got a growler fill. hapjydeuce (1002) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. This is a pretty tasty Belgian that reminds me of the spicy blond wintertime brews, with huge notes of clove and fruit. Hazy yellow color with minimal white head, with lots of fizz. The aroma is light banana, clove, apricot and pear. Very sweet flavor with tones of bubblegum, more clove, ginger and a touch of juniper. Ends light and sweet for an 8% beer. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 27, 2008
ON tap at brewery. Copper brown with a fizzy white head. Sweet fruit and belgian yeast aroma. Raisin, Sugar, Banana, and clove taste. Quite good. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2008
On-tap at PP C’Bad for CBC week. Pours cloudy brown/red color with a resilient off-whitish head. Smells dark and sweet malty and yeasty bready, belgian style of course. Tastes about the same as it smells. Sweet and malty, yeasty with the Belgian flavor. Not really that dark tasting. A little booze on the finish. Full bodied with subdued carbonation. Could use more carbonation in my opinion.
