What a standout! We happened to have 3 of these at our own tasting and it was the hands-down champ. Amber color with a mellow head (for a Belgian), great aromas of malt, corriander, and spice. Very smooth considering the hop content; balanced and full bodied: bread, malt, and a lightly herbal hoppiness that is only barely perceptible. A pleasant, lingering finish that borders on spicy encourages a minute or two between tastes. mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 7, 2004
22 oz bottle: much much darker than the 04.04.04 i drank last night. and smells much less intense. still, slight bannanas in the smell. very fruity. also alcohol. cloudy deep amber, with a moderate peach head. tastes smooth and delicate, with a peppery berryness to it. interesting. driver76 (40) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013

Tasting as of Halloween 2005. Aged in the cellar. The smoothest brew in the world. Ages exceptionally well. Not as hoppy as it once was, but the smoothness is so succinct that the overall effect is pleasing.
