Review from 4/2011 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a clear orange amber. Small white head with light lacing. Sweet malt and light fruit aroma. Mild malt, light fruit, light citrus and moderate Belgian spicing. Not that complex. Nice medium body and obviously well made, but I prefer a bit more malt and other flavors. Finish was dry and a bit astringent; this increased as the ale warmed. Pleasant, but not really in the league of other Belgian strong ale and the finish is lacking.

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

The pour was a medium gold in color with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, eventually reducing to a thick foamy cap which produced some really nice sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, citrus hops and a strong moldy yeast with notes of banana, green apple, pears and a mild peppery spice.

The taste was good and malty with a nice strong note of citrus in the beginning and then became very yeasty and mildly bitter with notes of green apple, pears and had a bit of spiciness towards the end. The flavor stayed with you for a really good long time with a spicy yeast finish that was left laying on the taste buds well after all other flavors faded.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry in texture with a good strong prickly carbonation.

Overall an exquisite Belgian Ale with a complexity of flavors blending together extremely well, forming a fantastic tasting brew...
