Yeah... so, I guess not that great as far as Belgian strong ales are concerned. But an interesting brew. I mostly got it because a. I hadn’t had it before, and b. my girlfriend liked the bottle caps. (They will eventually go in her hair.) The most exciting part about this beer was the cherry-cranberry flavor of it. Not sure where that comes from, but it’s a nice touch, if a little over-done. A little on the fizzy side of the palate too-- a bit of a turn-off. kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Not a bad beer, but just reminded me of another Duvel wannabe. Poured from the bottle with to a golden color, with thick white pillowy head and good lacing. Aroma was the same doughy, fruity, malty notes found in many beers otrf this type, with taste that followed suit, although not real pronounced. Mouthfeel was somewhat spicy and chewy, and the finish was actually fairly smooth and warming. Not a bad beer all and all. jacobwennbom (356) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2006
Fruity aroma, most prominent is green apples. Taste goes the same way but add yeast and some bitterness.

The aroma has malt, yeast, and light fruits. The appearance is gold with a foamy head. The flavor has a ginger ale taste that was unexpected but yeast and fruit seem normal for the style. The palate is thin with a light spicy aftertaste. Overall it’s not bad but not so good that I would buy this often. HogTownHarry (7086) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Via trade with Viper666. Poured slightly hazy actively bubbling gold and an average bright white fluffy head. MIld aroma of grain, honey, alcohol and a hint of citrus and tropical fruit - a little pungent, almost skunky as it warms. Taste is very sweet - reminded me of candied dried pineapple slices with a hint of sweet white wine and yeast - hardly grainy at all. Watery body, almost stingingly carbonated, alcoholic and syrupy mouthfeel - not horrible, way too sweet though. SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2006 Bottle ($6.99 3-pack) Pale straw pour with a fantastic, creamy head that settles into a uniform layer on top. The foam slides down the sides of the tulip leaving little lacing. I was surprised to find very little abv in the nose as it is rampant in the body. Decent fruity esthers (cherry, pineapple) make up the nose, although a heavy dose of green apple raises suspiction. Prickly carbonation helps to disperse the esthery body. All in all, I am wanting more of a malt profile to balance the fruitiness though. Seems one dimensional for a Strong Ale. The best thing this beer has going for it is it’s name. It will sell because of its name, not because of its actual taste. Tmoney99 (15120) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2006 Bottle. Poured hazy orange with a minimal white fizzy head that diminished quickly with no lacing. Medium complex yeasty aroma. Medium body. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
