Review from 2/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a nice dark orange color with a creamy tan head and nice lacing. Delicious aroma of caramel malts, dark fruit and Belgian spicing. Typical Belgian flavors, dark fruit, orange, spicy. High carbonation leaves a dry, slightly astringent flavor. Somewhat sour, dry fruit finish. A bit on the dry side for my taste in dubbles, but well made and pleasant to drink. Medium bodied.

12oz bottle poured into my Allagash glass. It's got a really nice looking caramel color to it with a thick, frothy head filling the top two inches of the glass.

The aroma has a lot of crisp, slightly sweet fruits to it with some notes of apple along with a touch of grape. The earthy yeast spice is very noticeable, but complimenting. It comes together well.

The taste follows through with more of the crisp, fruit flavors. I get a little more of a caramel sweetness mixing in though. The yeast spice is pretty bold, especially in the finish. I get a hint of chocolate in the finish as well.

The mouthfeel is a little on the heavier side of the style with carbonation being high but delicate. Overall, it's a great version of the style. It comes together very well and is very flavorful. Great beer overall, a classic.
