Nice stuff. Floral hops and some straw. Some coriander. Just the kind of Belgian strong I like. Light sweetness with some hint of bitter grass like a cow’s last meal before the slaughter. Bottle. Cuso (8619) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 1, 2017

From the Encore release the 22oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up plenty of sweetened wheat, citrus, coriander and banana. The taste comes across the palate with a nice creamy texture as it unloads banana sweetness peppered by shards of spicy coriander and cloves to midway. At midway it becomes a bit more citrus like as the modest wheat note takes on a slight quick bready quality. Into the finish the persistent banana and spiciness are met with a bit of a candy like bubble gum note and a pear flavored cotton candy character. All in all a pretty solid wheat beer that achieves some balance between the sweet notes, spicy notes and citrus. laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2017
66 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled 22.07.2016bytemesis (8257) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Aroma has soapy tones, citrus, spices and Belgian yeast. Flavour has soapy tones, spices, Belgian yeast and bretta with urinal cake. Quite something it promises to be; a Belgian (bretta)beer with spices. Rather light for a 7.5% beer.
Bottle, encore series. Pours lightly hazy golden orange, medium white head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is super strong grassy notes, black pepper, orange peel, coriander. Pretty overt in the adjuncts. Flavor is light plus sweet, mega grassy peppery yeast character with some citrus and honey flavors and coriander floral notes. Light plus body. About as subtle as a hammer to the temple. I am guessing that I can understand why this stood out in 2002, but it just seems ham-handed today. Not sure where the hops come into play. radagast83 (8019) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Sampled from a bottle. I have at least one witness, it did happen. Well this one poured a slight orange-yellow color, no head when I got to it. Aroma is somewhat like musty orange zest, not too much else. Flavor is mellow and a little sweet, almost creamy light citrus. I’m being a little lenient on this due to the age of the bottle, as it feels well past its prime (despite what the bottle claims), but a lot better than I ever expected this one to ever be. FROTHINGSLOSH (7697) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy peach color with a medium sized foamy yellowish-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was musty and dusty with coriander and white pepper notes. The flavor was musty and dryish with a medicinal presence followed by coriander and perfume. Long medicinal and perfumey finish. Medium body. Very disappointing.
