I just brewed this beer. Its similiar to Fat Tire but with a little more body. I don't agree that this is a "dry" beer. Wonderful aroma. Great flavor. I did the mini mash. I'll brew this again for sure.

Delicious! I cold crashed it for about a week in the keg. It was unbelievable. As it warmed to cellar temperature in the glass, the flavors intensified.

My first recipe as well. Turned out excellent. I bought some different Belgian ales to compare it against and it came out most similar to the Widmer W '09

This was my first recipe I ever brewed. Over a long Christmas holiday, I started brewing. Followed the directions to a "T" and it turned out great. I cannot believe that I can brew beer this good. I gave my boss 6 and he claims it is the best beer he has ever drank. I will definitely brew this again but with the mini-mash. Also, the carbonation is not real heavy so don't expect a frothy mug but it was still enough to privide a head. Slightly fruity, not too much bitterness, and a nice malt flavor, for a very balanced beer.

Very good recipe. Belgian is not my favorite but this came out very tasty. My wife and friends also thought this was good. I would definitely brew this one again.

The instructions on this one say to let it condition for 3 weeks after fermentation, and you definitely want to wait that long before drinking, if not 4 weeks. This was the second brew I ever did, and my first one tasted great after only a week or two, so I thought the same would happen here. Not so. It was pretty flat, very unfinished. All that said, once I waited the specified time, it had a nice crisp flavor that was very good for warm weather.

I brewed this back in October. After two weeks primary, two weeks secondary, four weeks in the bottle, it became a nice beer. I used the dry yeast with the extract kit. I had a nice balance between the spicy and fruity notes. I have just one bottle left. The last bottle I drank was around April 4. It was by far the best of the batch. Give this brew some time and you will be rewarded.

My first brew. Extract, Wyeast Ardennes, 1 week primary, 1 week secondary, 3 weeks in bottle. Higher temperatures (75ish F) during primary fermententation really accentuated spices/ester profile (my brew room smelled like a banana plantation). I am amazed how excellent this turned out. It has a very subtle sourness with a spicy finish. Hop bitterness is well balanced by malt overtones. Beatiful red/brown color and nice soft head. The gentleman below is absolutely correct: don't touch this beer until it has been bottle conditioned for three weeks minimum. By memory, and this may be a stretch, this reminds me of a very young Orval (1 month in bottle) I had that had not really been taken hold of by the bottling Brett. A very complex (but pretty accessible for a Belgian) and elegant beer. Will brew this style many more times. It came with peanuts.

This turned out to be an excellent beer. Spicy, fruity, refreshing. I wish AHS would bring it back, or at least carry the hops to put the recipe together again.
