750mL 2013 bottle poured into my lost abbey stemware glass

Golden straw color with a 2 finger white head that stays there for ever

Aroma is spicy, sweet , lots of fruit, flowers, apricots and subtle yeast.

Taste is sweet, caramel, spice, and apricots , banana , Sweet Hints of rum , brown sugar, yeast and raisins.

Nice crisp mouthfeel. Carbonation is really great , No alcohol tatste at all , and this is a 10% abv beer , very well done !

The sweetness dictates that this beer be sipped slowly and savored. For me this is a very good dessert beer !

11.2oz, 2011. Bright cloudy gold pour, solid finger of white head. Doesn't seem to stick all that much.

Aroma, a yeasty spiciness. Some light caramel covered fruits. Lighter clove. Aroma is not all that potent.

Taste, big and spicey. Grainy wheat like malt, caramel, mango for the background. Coriander, allspice. A light pepper and herbal hops to add some bite along with some alcohol warmth.

Solid medium body, carbonation jus barely cuts the stickiness down enough. Still a nice sipper, even with the estery notes in the taste the abv is pretty well in check.
Somewhere between a strong pale and a triple in reality. Definetely a solid fruit forward Belgian. I Would prefer a little more pale, but it is worth trying.

2011 4-pack.

Pours a cloudy brownish orange, like apple cider, with a 1 1/2 finger creamy, thick white head that leaves some sticky lacing.

Spicy, sprightly, tropical aroma. Mango and pineapple. Ginger ale. A hint of bubblegum or licorice.

Sweet and earthy taste with spiced apple and banana. The taste of alcohol is evident. Slightly cloying.

Medium thick in body. Feel is more foamy than creamy. There's a burn of alcohol in the throat.

A quality brew. Well balanced. I think I would have enjoyed it more in the winter, but it's a nice contrast to all the IPAs and Imperial IPAs Iv'e been sampling lately.

2012 vintage - Poured a cloudy orange with two finger head that left lace and stuck around a long time for better or worse. A spicy and yeasty aroma with touches of tropical fruit and a touch of floral hops as well sweet and breadlike malt. Smooth and easy to drink with a light to medium body, there is a liveliness and crispness in this beer thanks to some spice and carbonation and the alcoholo gives it a heated snap on the finish. The fruit flavors and malts are balanced and I'd say you can equally detect some plush tropical fruit like pineapple with citric hoppy orange alongside both sweet and grainy malts. Overall I just found this beer to hit the right notes in terms of balance and taste and I really enjoyed it this dangerous sipper.
