Golden-hued, with an orange cast. The frothy head fades fairly quickly. The nose, concentrated in a 12-oz. tulip, is of toffee, citrus, and pepper, satisfyingly affirmed by the taste. The beer is refreshingly prickly on the palate. This sophisticated blend of flavors, combined with a relatively modest ABV, makes for a noteworthy thirst-quencher, and an able accompaniment to a piquant meal.

Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Fair at best head retention.

Clove and banana dominates. The Belgian/German yeast aroma is what you get here. I quite like the overall picture.

A moderate body and medium fizziness. Intense but not well regarded

This is a good beer. The Belgian note are prominent and the flavours work. A really sid beer.

One of the best beers to be had. I found this as a three dollar beer pint night at the flying saucer. What a difficult name to remember though. Normally $5/pint. Good enough to make me want to sign up and make my first comment. The smell and the taste remind me of armangnac or calvados or perhaps an armenian brandy.
