SHIG (4675) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Bottle: Poured a golden color with a huge off white head. Aroma is citrus fruit along with spices and yeast. Taste was suprisingly malty but subsided to have that sweet fruit and spice. Finish is dry and hoppy.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2008
33cl bottle from KIngdom Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy caramel yellow with a thin white, creamy head that settles rapidly. Little glass lacing. Aroma is citrus, spice, lemon, yeast, fresh bread. Flavor is slightly sweet, somewhat tart with fresh fruit flavors, vanilla, bready yeast, and some subtle spiciness. Lively carbonation with a slightly sweet, quick finish.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Bottle with "Heylissem" on the label. A rather unexciting style perhaps, but easy to drink and quite solid. Dark golden/orange pour, and mine was quite cloudy (in contrast to some other raters’ experience). Even some yeasty bits floating around. Abundant off-white head. Yeasty, malty mild apricot nose. More of the same with a bit of spice on the tongue. Surely won’t blow anyone away, but for a solid, low-alcohol everyday Belgian, this is your beer. Perhaps a good ’food beer.’

Clear golden with medium white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with orange peel and spicy notes. Sweet yeasty flavor with fruity notes and a spicy finish.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty and spicy with a light note of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of spices, leading to a dry spicy finish. Somewhat boring.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2008
Bottle. Golden, heady, mildy hopped. ech waterdown earthy feel to it, not for me.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2008
Hazy gold with a thick white head. Yeasty, spicy nose with lots of fruity malt. A bit of hop bitterness in the end. Not bad, but rather plain for a Belgian.
