GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2007
16oz ceramic bottle. Cloudy golden pour under a very tall and long lasting ceamy white head. Aroma of cloves, overripe peaches and a touch of yeast. Restrained banana, malt, cloves and lemon zest flavors. Creamy texture with a hint of pepper in the sweet finish. I sampled this on a very hot and humid day which didn’t do the brew any favors so I’ll give it another pour under better conditions and re-rate if needed.

Very light gold color out of the bottle, I think I see some floating yeast. Cool ceramic jug with a swing top. I had a hard time figuring what this was. For its strength its almost like a trippel. It SMELLS like a trippel. However the taste is very light for a trippel. The hops aren’t really there. Honey and caramel dominate and the ABV is not even there. Interesting brew, Its ok.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Pours a murky copper brown with a medium whitish head. Aroma is of light fruits with alcoholic notes and cream. Fruity, hoppy flavor with a garbage dumpster flavor lurking within that throws it off. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Overall, fair. The fact that this is called a Grand Cru in some markets is as laughable as it is absurd.

huineman (690) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2016
7,6% alc. 50 cl bottle bought at Alcampo, served in La Trappe chalice. Pours copperish amber with huge ivory head. Aroma is orange, iron filings, cookie dough, white flowers. Round, full-bodied, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Long lasting. Not bad, although it seems too expensive to me (6,30€ per half litre). I agree that it comes with a nice bottle one might keep for water, though.

The Etruscan (685) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUN 28, 2002
Amber-golden color. Large weak head. Aroma is malty with cookie notes and slightly alcoholic. Flavor is sweet, malty too, ending in a more balnced finish. Medium bodied.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2006
16 fl oz ceramic flip-top bottles. Heres- the deal two diff. locations... one served flip-top sealed, while the other had the flip-top yet was sealed w/ a cap, nice! Both had decent carbonation but the cap sealed was more like what I expected. Bubbly light, golden ale. Nose of pepper and spice. Taste is also spicy w/ a very slight alcohol burn. Yeasty towards the end. I really enjoyed this both time, the first was at Gene Haufbrews? in Chalreston at $9 and the other (cap sealed) Winter Solsice Saucer ceramic bottle design was bought at the Flying Saucer here in Columbia for a bullshit $15. Interesting variations in bottles though.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Enjoyed at a holiday celebration with armed, Pete howe, and Bill small. Cloudy yellow pour with a thick foamy White head. Flavor is hoppy with some light spicy notes.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
golden colour with a frothy head... tastes of pur honeycomb with a slight pinch of citrus... quite surprpisingly on the light side tastewise for a belgian. But ever so smooth!

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Very complex beer and on the more expensive side but well worth it. A beer that I could drink again and again.

Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2010
50 cl bottle, golden/orange colour with nice and foamy white head. Smell: yeaste. Taste: sweet, yeasty, fruity, alcohol and grainy. Not a special one in its style.
