750ml , best before 02/23/09, poured into pint glass with a nice rocky head, good lacing. A cloudy yellow.

Smell is grassy, some citrus notes.

This beer has a nice yeast/bready sweet taste that yields to a mild understated hop bite.

Medium mouthfeel, nice crisp carbonation.

Drinkability of this beer is good, I'll probably finish this 750ml without to much trouble.

This is one of my favorite beers, and now that it's readily available in Manitoba, I'm Laughing.

Pours a hazy, relatively opaque golden colour with a highly carbonated head that subsides to a thin lace, smell is alternately warm and inviting and light and airy...very Belgian. The taste is of coriander and spice, mildly citrussy, also wheaty, and very complex. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated but the alcohol is so well hidden that it goes down awfully smooth, deceptively so. The only reason that the drinkability goes down IS the high alcohol, which prevents me from pounding these back. The price is also a setback, but what can you do for such a high-quality beer. The best beer brewed in Canada in my opinion, but I can't say I've drank all of them either. Very highly recommended!

After One Year: Head retains a little less after a bit of time, but the lacing stays. Aroma hasn't changed much, still very spicy, fruity and yeasty, but with a bit more of that oily orange peel bitterness. Taste is a little drier, a little yeastier. The flavours are melding into a more glorious whole and losing a bit of their distinctiveness, but that's not a bad thing. I'll come back to this in a another year.

A- Hazy gold with a gigantic fluffy white head. Chunks of lacing stick to the sides of the glass as the head ever so slowly dissipates. A big column of bubbles rises constantly from the bottom of my Duvel tulip to join that massive head. A sight to behold.

S- Very yeasty. Tart lemon and lime smells come up to greet the nose. Sweet malt backs the yeast to create a near heavenly aroma.

T- Oh yeah, that's the stuff. More sweet malt with that fantastic yeast character. Clove melds with those sweet citrus flavors to create a wonderful taste. A bit of a metallic flavor comes into play at times, although the alcohol does not. Next to no bitterness on the finish, although a little might have been nice in order to balance out the sweetness. Not that I'm complaining...

M- Carbonation is high but not too high; mouthfeel is light to medium and fluffy, but also a little creamy at times.

D- Very high. The only thing limiting it is the high alcohol. And maybe the sweetness a little bit.

Fantastic beer. With my admittedly brief experience with Belgian-style ales, I have to say that I've come to the conclusion that not much beats a great BSPA. This one is fantastic. Highly, highly recommended.

A - Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter at 45 degrees; a beautiful cloudy orangish/peach with a quickly-dissipating foamy head. A color I haven't really seen before.

S - Spiced alcohol is the background for a malty apricot/orange aroma.

T - Wonderful start of apricot and spice (ginger, cloves, maybe some cinnamon) eventually leads to a floral banana taste; finally finishes strong with a very warming alcohol and spice feel. Complex blend of flavor but it comes together very nicely - alcohol doesn't dominate the taste.

M - Exceptional warming, alcohol feel with a nice bubbly kick.

D - I wouldn't want to drink more than one at a time - not because of the alcohol, but because I wouldn't want to ruin the moment. Extremely drinkable and a complex taste lead to one of my favorite yearround brews.

A:
Pours a hazy dandelion-esque yellow with a creamy, gloppy white head. Good retention; no lacing to speak of.

S:
Sweet and yeasty on the whole with strong pepper, cane sugar, and soap. Quite fresh smelling.

T:
Rich and crisp. Peppery and heavy with yeasty goodness. It finishes fresh and floral with some citrus notes and a vaguely boozy twinge.

M:
Prickly with a creamy head, it is a tad syrupy after a while but doesn't linger too bad and is pleasurable overall.

O:
Really tasty Tripel. It verges on too yeasty but that is the only thing that I can think of that is even close to wrong with it. Really enjoyable beer. Better than one would think.
Sweet but not sticky. Well-carbonated. Easy drinking. But don't be fooled she packs a wollop. Would have again. Worth finding.

Pint and a half bomber. Didn't notice freshnessness dating. But great corked bottle.

After popping the cork, this one was carbonated enough to almost escape the bottle. It's color is a shade or too paler than gold, maybe straw, and it is quite fizzy, with foam delicately lacing the glass as you drain it.

So many things going on in delicate ways. Soft silky mouthfeel, spices like vanilla and clove, perhaps leather and fruity bubblegum as well. And then there is the lurking alcohol. What alcohol? Try standing up.
