Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:

Releasing the tightly placed cork reveals a very active pop--this beer is just waiting to breath. Lively carbonation fills the glasses right to the rim with three fingers of bubbly head; decent head retention here. Mildly chilled, the hazed amber-gold color tells us to let this beer hit cellar temperature. Full jacket of exotic and tropical fruit in the aroma, all soft but very complex, with suggestions of mango, kiwi, passion fruit and Asian pear. The nose also exposes a faint white peppercorn alcohol and some biscuity malt. The medium body shows off a big mouthful of smoothness. Mellow but steady fruitiness throughout, starting with apple peel and pineapple, ending with fresh fig and papaya. Slightly warm alcohol comes off a little peppery, hint of chalky yeast. Solid biscuit malt flavor with a mild hop bitterness, which balances the beer well with the help of the alcohol and light bitter, herbal, nearly clovey phenols from the yeast.

The Brewer's Art flex their brewing muscles here. A bit rustic, but that's a given broadness for Belgian-style beers. A good sipper. Very enjoyable.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A nice fluffy and off tan and very pinhead even bubbled head. Three fingers tall and settles nicely, with lots of rising fast tan carbonation along the edges. Body color is a nice deep amber almost red, but hints at a rusted burnt orange and quite opaque.

Hints of classic overseas Belgian character, sucrose sweet and lots of toasty brown sugars to match. Some mild clove sensations, warm herbal tea strangely, and soft cinnamon.

Palate comes with expected pleasure. Nice subdued and sweet brown sugar and cinnamon with a good carbonated and dried palate. Crisp almost champagne like but with raisin and fruit density. Noticeably warm but not horrifically boozy though.

Overall, while not a strong pale, it's a textbook Belgian amber pretty much.
