I picked this up on a recent trip to Austin. 11.2 ounce bottle poured into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

The beer pours a nice orange color with a white head. The aroma is strong Belgian yeast with some fruit, wheat and bubblegum. Very nice smelling. The flavor is very similar with the bubblegum and fruit being fairly strong. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Served in a Koningshoeven trappist goblet at Bad Apple yesterday.

The color was a slightly hazed rusty orange amber. The creamy tan foam was long lasting, and gently edged up on the sides of the glass. Aroma was yeast dominated, some apple and spice in the background. Full bodied with a phenolic spice and banana taste. Plenty malty with a residual caramel sweetness, and a light bitterness. Aftertaste was pleasant and fairly drying from the alcohol. Overall tasty and well made.

As a one off batch it was nice to try once, but I prefer their Quad & Dubbel more.

Bottle: Poured a deep caramel color ale with a huge foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of Belgian caramel malt with some sweet notes and some light fruity ester. Taste is also a mix between some Belgian caramel malt with some good notes of fruity ester and a balanced level of sweetness. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed with nice level of complexity and great level of drinkability.

S: belgian yeasty, yogurty, banana-cloves
T: fruity with banana, black pepper spicy, belgian phenol (bitter>), as my tongue got used to it i sense vanilla and oakiness very strongly

Overall, it's a nice sipper. i really like this oaky character.

A: The beer poured cloudy golden orange in color with a two finger beige head that quickly died down into a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface. A light amount of carbonation is visible near the edges of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of fruits, spices and yeast in the nose.
T: The taste is a lot stronger than the smell and has flavors of apples, caramel malts and spices. The initial taste has a little sweetness, which transitions over to a slight amount of bitterness, which is mostly present in the finish. There becomes more sweetness and less bitterness as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate. There is some dryness, particularly in the finish.
D: The beer is extremely easy to drink for this style because the alcohol is well hidden and there's a good balance between sweetness and bitterness.
