Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, bought at Liquorama in Upland, CA 10/5/03. Pours to clear red-amber hue, very tight, frothy white head that lingers with terrific lacing and very active carbonation. Very soft, hard-to-pick-up nose that teases with its faintness. It's nice, but I can barely smell it at all. Bright malts. Taste is immediately humming with a bit of alcohol and mostly fizzy carbonation, and a strange bubblegum hops and malt combination with that recognizable special Belgian zing. Slightly tinny, glowing flavor and very smooth, medium body and mouthfeel beneath the hum. Light bitterness to the hops. The relatively high alcohol content is not very prevalent at all, as this is just smooth, mild, a little bit glowing, and tasty. Long, respectable glowing Belgian strong finish that dries up and numbs your mouth with tangy maltiness. Very nice beer. Even mild enough, easy enough, and delicious enough to count as a very special treat of a session beer. Alcohol content be damned! Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Redish amber color with a good head and lots of carbonation. Intriguing cherry aroma with woody and spicy notes. Medium bodied, sweet and winelike up front, turning maltier and tangy with plum and cherry flavors, citrusy with a hint of alcohol. Smooth lingering finish on the sweet side.

A hazy caramel color, beige short lived head. Highly carbonated. A rich syrupy smell, yeast and alcohol noticeable. Well balanced, sweet up front but has a hoppy middle with a long and tasty finish. drinkbeer (283) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Ginger like spices. Less carbonation and smoother than Chimay. Nice job canadians. bgarrigus (36) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Strong and powerful, just like a Unibroue should be. Tangy yet sweet flavor, and I tasted a little bit of smokiness in there. Good complex taste with a low bitternes.

Beautiful color, and aroma. Lots of flavors, from malt to sweet to fruit. A little too much alcohol flavor but all in all a great beer. Dorwart (2591) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Great big head typical of Unibroue products. Nice and creamy on top with tons of carbonation. Aroma is semi sweet and malty and perhaps a big of green apple. Color is a medium amber orange. Flavor is a little thick and syrupy but quite tasty with more malts, a bit of caramel with a hint of alcohol. Finish is creamy smooth with a nice alcohol warming and a noticble yeast taste. Low bitterness. A very fine belgian ale and another great product from Unibroue. bob32256 (171) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2003

Caramel fruit and sugar sweet aroma. Hazy burnt orange colour with thick white head that recedes to a film. Sweet round full flavour with dark fruits and caramel maltiness. Alcohol makes a brief appearance but is hidden wonderfully in the huge palate of this wonderful beer. Residual and lasting sweetness. Bottle.
