Brown coloured with nice lace. Loved the aroma, a bit like Mc Chouffe. Smooth taste, a bit sweet. Short bitter finish.

Panzuriel (1312) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Not the best Belgian that I have ever had, but still very good. Nice smooth texture, good mouthfeel. Deep amber-red with a nice head. Good flavor walking the line between tartness and fruity hints. Very good.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2002
Nice and sweet with a sharp, spicy finish. Not as syrupy as other Belgian beers, which always makes me happy. Not the best Belgian beer I’ve had, but still pretty good and better than a lot of American beers.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 3, 2002
Pours a chocolate brown with a thin tan head. Very middle of the road.Not much complexity very limited flavors with nothing jumping out.Get an Orval instead.

Davhgbrew (942) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2002
Tastes like a brown. Not much complexity to this one. Palate starts off medium bodied with some dark fruit flavors, but it finishes pretty weak & watery. A very drinkable abbey ale, that I wouldn’t buy again, but I would gladly drink.

Good Balance between sweet and spicy. Head was nice and thick and the color was great.
