Small off-white head. Redish/copper-coloured. Pleasent aroma with plenty of fruit (mostly peach), also alcohol. Full body. Taste is sweet (again some peach?), a little spicy and with a late, light bitterness. Good. haukur (1970) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - JUN 20, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2005 a very yeasty and fruity aroma, some hints of nuts. Taste was very smooth, yeasty and fruity. Some hints of citrus, banana and apples (??) and a slighty sour finish. A very complex brew and an excellent beer! jonas (7748) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Phenolic banana nose.
Cloudy amber, not much head.
Tastenotes include peaches and bubblegum.
Quite different from other Belgian strong ales, you could almost think it is a weizenbock. cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 17, 2003
Fairly subtly spiced, yet flavorful. Just a hint of ginger, a bit more nutmeg and allspice added to a chewy brown sugar dough. A touch of citrus kept the beer from getting too sweet. I think if one was expecting a really huge flavor sensation, disappointment would result. Forced myself to spend some time with this brew to pick up the subtleties I am apt to miss. Perfect appearance and aroma; fit the style perfectly. clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 12, 2003
This beer pours a light brown color with a moderate head and a small amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma was tart with hints of fruit and spices. The taste was a little more tart than I would prefer and it has a bit more bit than I expected - the spices are very apparent in the taste also. I did not enjoy the aftertaste as much as the actual flavor. This beer is just ok - I wouldn't highly recommend it.

cool label: the canoe trip to hell. i've been on one or two trips like that, tho being wet on a canoe trip is more likely than burning up, i find. no flaming misery in this drink either: a cool toffee colored beverage attempts to conceal a baja dust storm of ragged blowing debris. head foamed like a sprinting camel at first, and it sounded like bacon sizzling, but the bloated bubbles burst leaving only dotted fossil-like lacing on the glass. combination cinammon roll and lemon tart aroma, bath oils, lavender and rose oil baby powder. ya just wanna drop a sweaty weight belt in there to make it a little manly. first half of the glass has extroverted effervesence, but with a little patient nursing, the internal boilers chill and the carbonation becomes almost docile. (tho the last pour has some dirt-like detritus). sweet and tart, strong and bitter, lemon-soaked graham cracker pastry, alcohol and stick cinamon. finish is brief with biterness and acidic bourbon breath. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2003
I would place this somewhere between a tripel and an abbey strong: plenty of orange coriander, but also a wee bit of raisins and caramel. Comparable to Victory V12. A nice beer, but a horribly tacky label. Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Cloudy orangish color.Sweet aroma with a hint of spice. Flavor is a spicy malty pepper taste.Alcohol makes it's way in at the end on the finish. A good beer by Unibroue. MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Orangey colour with a strong, lasting head. Alcohol is hidden quite well in this one. Excellent belgian ale from an excellent brewery. frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Hazy orage apperance. Sweet, buttery, slightly alcoholic aroma. Pretty much all of the characteristics that came through in the aroma also came through in taste.
