A: The beer is clear dark golden yellow in color with some hues of amber and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with delicate lacing on the surface and a thin collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of apples and malts are present in the nose along with some slight hints of sweetness.
T: The taste starts off like the smell but as soon as it starts warming up, moderately strong flavors of alcohol are noticeable in the finish and the aftertaste. Some notes of Belgian candi sugars and associated hints of sweetness are perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation with a little warming from the alcohol.
O: This beer doesn't taste nearly as strong as its alcohol content, but seems like a Belgian-inspired version of an American Malt Liquor and something you drink to get quickly buzzed.

This beer was a special order for a customer that changed his mind, so it was sitting in the warehouse waiting to be picked back up from the vendor. Another customer inquired about this beer and I remembered the product from the initial request. Amazed that we even able to get it, let alone have it in the store, the customer purchased the case and gave a pack to the store to try. I must admit that this is an interesting beer from the French. It doesn't appear to be much of anything special from the pour or nose; however, it reminds me of a delicate Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France. Elegance in an 8.4 fluid ounce bottle.

(Previous review, transferred from beer journal)

Belzebuth: French, 13% alcohol by volume, blonde ale; Appearance: yellowish amber; Smell: wheat with a hint of malt; Taste/Mouthfeel: slightly bitter wheat ale with a hint of malt flavor; decent.

Just a boring wheat beer with a higher alcohol content.

Poured into a pint glass.

Pours dark fizzy yellow/orange with minimal head.

Smell is boozy.. Rum and aging fruits. Sweet.

Taste is malty, bready, boozy. Very sweet. Sharp and crisp. Leaves a lingering taste on the tongue, spicy.

Not much bitterness at all. It’s not bad.
