The aroma is cider like with yeast, fruit, flowers, spice, and corn malt. The appearance is hazy amber. The flavor is like the aroma and light. The palate is thin but OK. I like it. lb4lb (2632) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2008
Bottle shared at tasting. Pours cloudy and a dark caramel color with a big lasting creamy beige head. Smell is mild and dusty malt. Too mild in fact. Taste is similarly tame, and slightly sweet with not much going on flavorwise. Hints of dusty sweet spice which become almost a touch cloying in the end. Not something I’d be crazy about having again. MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Thanks to BeerLando for the 750ml bottle. Cloudy dark orange color with a large head. Aroma was yeasty (banana) with caramel malt and a hint of spice. Very sweet flavor, medium body and kind of boring. TampaBeer (257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2007
The label of my "Lectio Divina" has the words "Amber Ale" in place of "Dark" on the banner. Not sure if this is the same beer. Anyway, this beer doesn’t cut it as a Belgian Ale for me. There is a lot of sweetness here, but no bite, and the beer is nearly flat as well. A sticky, bleh afteraste is also unpleasant. ekstedt (6976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle (75 cl), thanks to marsiblursi. Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Tropical fruits, especially tangerine and oranges, in the aroma. Spicy and sugary as well. Medium bodied and smooth. Too sweet.

Bottled. Thx marsiblursi.
Amber with a small, white head.
Pretty sweet and malty aroma.
Flavour from cedar and some light toffee. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Thanks to iowaherkeye for bringing this bottle to his ’farewell to Iowa’ tasting. My first beer from Florida. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange color. with a soap bubble white head. The aroma was fruit dominated (especially pear) with a bit of toffee underneath. There was also a whiff of chlorinated pool water. Kind of like that smell you sometimes get in a the hotel lobby that lets you know there is a pool somewhere in the building. Very fruity and semi-sweet. I tasted pear, apple, peach, and rock candy. Akin to a fruit liqueur. Odeed (1806) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 12, 2009
murky orange with no head.aroma is candy sugar,oranges,apples,and slight funk.flavor is much of the same with a watery finish. McGarnigle (654) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2010
750 ml caged cork bottle. Big pop, and then the beer flows and flows. A gusher, and even after my first pour foam keeps rising out of the bottle opening. Cloudy amber-orange pour, the head fades. Fizzy at first, then a bit flat, maybe because of the gushing. Taste is very fruity (tangerine and whatnot) and too sweet and not tart. Cloying, really. I have to think I may have gotten a bad bottle that screwed up the carbonation and took away any balancing tartness. I’d like to give it another shot, but I paid $13 for this. godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2011
bottle at Le Saint Bock. dark brown orange with a thick off white head. aroma is fruity and spicey. taste is so overly sweet that it’s near undrinkable. lots of funk. just not very good at all. i was so excited to try this one too.
