beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Pours a cloudy gold-amber with a thick head that settles into a nice thin lace that stays with the beer. Delicate aroma of banana, cloves, and gentle malts. Medium body, high carbonation, sits well on the palate. Sweet, as the Belgian Trappist and Abbey styles are known to be.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle from fonefan. Hazy, pale body with a large white, fluffy head, lasting. The aroma is lightly sweet, honey, dusty, light banana, peach and bread. The flavor is lightly sweet, herbal, floral, honey, bread and light banana. Medium body is very soft with light, tight carbonation and a lightly bitter end. Superb. I could drink these all day.

Re-rate after 7 years. probably not the best beer to age. It was the worst of the three after the aging. turned into oxidized honey. dark gold appearance with small white head. honey, caramel, malty, faint pineapple. not dry.

Poured a honey color with white head. Had a bunch of "stuff" floating around. Aroma of fruit and some hops. Nice flavor of fruit, hops, sweet malt, and finished kind of spicy. Very smooth.
