Any tasting notes or a picture of it in the glass? I'm curious about this one since there's a lot going on. Also, where do I get "Belgian Ale No.3"? Never heard of it...

I'm blown away that this recipe has sat here with only 2 comments in over a year. Color me intrigued.

Braufguss has the understatement of the year with "there is a lot going on here". Peets, what was the inspiration for this recipe? Updates?

Wow, I had never seen this recipe. It is probably either epically awesome or epically horrible. I am guessing the later. Durian? Really?

Whoa, I wasn't familiar with Durian, but according to wikipedia:

The edible flesh emits a distinctive odour, strong and penetrating even when the husk is intact. Some people regard the durian as fragrant; others find the aroma overpowering and offensive. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as almonds, rotten onions, turpentine and gym socks. The odour has led to the fruit's banishment from certain hotels and public transportation in southeast Asia.

Durian? I have only seen that stuff on TV. For all accounts it is the Lemberger cheese of fruits. I have never seen it any where in the Midwest or Southeast (US)
