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.

huineman (654) - 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.

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.

badhack (550) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Medium toast and malt, a little yeast, touch of honey, herbal. Large, heavy stone-line container. Somewhat complex, but mostly smooth with a unique combination of flavors that works well.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle (750ml). Poured sparkling golden orange with a large frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of floral hops with lemon zest, pears, apple pie, cinnamon, coriander and some straw. Flavor was of sweet bready malts with a very light bitterness, lemons, dried apricots, candy sugar, cinnamon, cloves and light notes of coriander. Very well masked alcohol content. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a decent length finish. Far to sweet for my liking not nearly bitter or spicy enough to balance itself out IMO.
