11.2oz bottle poured in a tulip glass. This beer pours with a huge creamy white head, much like a Duval. The beer is the same color as a pilsener and is a little bit cloudy. It smells like clove, Juicy Fruit and light bananas. Wow! This has a very unique flavor & I LIKE IT! The initial sweet fruity Belgian flavor is followed by a spicy hop secondary burst that really adds a nice contrast. This is one of the better beers Ive had in a while.

Really enjoyed this beer. Champagne-like bubbles. Definitely a favorite of mine.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Strong aroma of yeast. Lightly banana and spices. Low caramel quality as well. Strong hop bitterness with an alcoholic warmth. Spicy yeast flavor comes along as well. Not bad.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 27, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with a large long lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of herbal and earthy hops, light notes of citrus. Taste is spicy and hoppy with a light malt sweetness with notes of citrus. Medium mouthfeel with tingly carbonation and a dry hoppy finish. Slight alcohol warmth but not hot. A different but wonderfull Belgian Strong Ale.

This was a bit of a disappointment for the price paid.. Pleasant belgian aroma of sweetness and spice.. the flavor is hampered by an unpleasant aftertaste.

hopscotch (11024) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle... Mostly clear, yellow ale with a large, foamy, white head. Great retention. Spicy, fruity nose with tons of spicy, clove phenols and fuzzy fruit, pear and apple esters. Sweet, barely kilned malt flavor with medium, metallic bitterness. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet, then dry finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy golden with a bubbly, off-white head. aroma of yeast and amalt. Medium body with sweetish malt and fruit and some yeastiness - but hoppy? Well, the 80 IBUs are certainly very well hidden in a vaguely bitter finish. If this was an attempt at creating a hybrid between a Belgian and a "big" American, then the Belgian genes certainly won. 170407

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - APR 17, 2007
Incredibly rocky head, clear yellow body, with the exception of chunky globs floating around at the top... quite disgusting, but Im willing to overlook that fact. Light golden Belgian ale aroma. Slightly piney, but mostly spicey peppery hops. Not blown away by the hops, but more emphasis on the hops than the malt. The body is relatively smooth in terms without a ton of viscosity and low carbonation. The chunks were gross though. Lightly sweet, spicey hops, peppery, with a slight Belgian funk and some lemon. Relatively clean, but not too over the top. Id drink it for the right price.
