Sweet Nectar of the Gods!
I'm a beginner brewer but a veteran of many fine Belgian ales. While my equipment, techniques and knowledge certainly limit how close I can imitate the real thing, this was a great beer. I used wlp-500 from a one gallon starter. Fermentation was VIGOROUS. I recommend a blow-off tube or a big fermenter. I started the fermentation at 65 and gradually raised it over the first week to 73. I kept it at 65 for a month in the secondary then kegged it. _x000D__x000D_My mom and sister in law loved it and are asking for more for Thanksgiving. They were buzzing so much and laughing, I have to say that this beer revolutionized my visits to the in-laws. _x000D__x000D_

Good Beer ... If you wait for it to mature
It is way too sweet to drink for the first 6 months after brewing, but after that it mellows out and is fantastic

A Great beer - with additions
I have been buying this kit for years. It has always amazed people that taste it as to it's wonderful flavor and complexity. Lately (over the last four times) I have taken to scrapping the 1 lb honey in the kit (saved for another recipe), and replacing with 2 lbs of either Clover or Orange Blossom honey. Both add different complexities and flavors to an otherwise excellent product.

Just as good as the canals in Brugges
First comment to those complaining of "not enough yeast" / "buy two smack packs": Step up to the big leagues and make a starter yeast._x000D__x000D_Fantastic beer all around for those who enjoy Belgians. As expected, sweet honey flavor (think Leffe), followed by a complex mild spice and pleasant, warming finish (like Duvell)._x000D__x000D_This was my first Belgian, and based on tips, held in secondary for 6 months. Otherwise, followed instructions to a tee. The beer was ready to drink after two weeks in the bottles, but matured about a month out - after that, I didn't have any left to compare - waxing the tops of some 22oz bombers, they made great Christmas presents and host gifts._x000D__x000D_Even a family member who I'd call a "hop head," said, "You know, I usually don't like "sweet" beers, but this is just nice (he had 3 22oz'ers all-in)._x000D__x000D_BOTTOM LINE: Do your homework, make a starter yeast, and be patient - You will be rewarded with a memorable brew.

wait 6 months then it is gone.
Belgian style ales are probably one of my favorite beer groups and this is one of my favorite Midwest kits. I currently have a batch in the secondary and this time i swapped from wyeast to white labs yeast and added an extra pound of wildflower honey. It is hard keeping a great beer in the secondary that long but it is worth the wait.

Very good and get's you where you want to go
So I had every intention of waiting the recommended 6-9 months for this one to mature, especially after reading the reviews about it being "too sweet." I even bought the ingredients for a Ferocious IPA so that I wouldn't be tempted. That didn't work...when I checked the gravity after 2 weeks in the primary I found it was already nicely fermented out. It even tasted really good non-carbonated. I let it sit in the secondary for another 6 weeks and then kegged for a birthday party. That was last Saturday...today is Friday and my keg in nearly empty. Everyone that tried it, loved it and this included seasoned beer drinkers and casual beer drinkers alike. It is strong stuff, ended up with 8.8% EtOH by volume. I used the Wyeast's Belgian Ale #1214.

Add another pound of honey
I love Trappist ales and this is one of my favorite Midwest kits. I currently have a batch in the secondary and this time I went from dry yeast to the white labs yeast and added an extra pound of clover honey. It is hard keeping a great beer in the secondary that long but it is worth the wait.

The best Belgian Ale you can brew yourself
If you like Leffe or Grimbergen you will be impressed with the quality and taste of this Belgian Honey.
