Ernest (6149) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Head is large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is clear dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon), with a note of coriander. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.

caesar (4946) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2004
Hazy golden color, thick lasting white head. Aroma is very hoppy, some spices like nutmeg. Dry hopbitter taste and palate, some sweet candy. Nicely balanced beer.

skortila (4433) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2004
Spicy and hoppy, sweet nose. cloudy, orange coloured with a lasting off-white head. Good looks. Taste is hoppy again... very hoppy, sweet, spicy (nutmeg). Very hopbitter finish. IPA style beer. Decent brew.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
JorisPPattyn (7808) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2003
Light amber; huge fluffy head, disappearing. Quite hoppy nose - noble hops, but immediately overwhelmed by metaloxide, wet dog, meaty. Taste starts again like the nose: quite hoppy. Some sugar, and metallic flavour is confirmed. Palate is very neutral. Not very well-bodied. In the end, the hoppy bitterness stays around. Not really bad. I would have preferred it being a bit more affirmative in the hops idea.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Bov (9255) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2003
cloudy orange colour, giant head with a beautiful lace, yeasty with honeyish notes, lot of carbonation, robust bitterness, long bitter orange finish - some analogies with Orval but there is something undefinable missing

3.5
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2003
The beer pours a translucent golden amber color, the head purposeful in size, the color off white and the residual lace a fine cover upon the glass. Mostly malt in the nose, lightly astringent, crisp and clean with the start slightly sweet, lots of malt, the top skinny in feel. Finish is biting in its acidity, the hops perky in their spicy bite, dry lingering aftertaste, drinkable, but not great.

3.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
omhper (19216) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2002
Bottled. Golden coloured and slightly hazy with dense, creamy haed. Aroma of fruit and honey. Sweet and malty with nice warming malt character. The finish is sweetish with rather low bitterness. Pleasant, but not overly interesting.

3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2002
Blond with a big white creamy head. Hop aroma. hoppy taste with hints of spice. Medium bitter finish. A well balanced beer without any striking characteristics.

diabel (1605) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - DEC 25, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Rerate 6/12/03: A white head and a blond-amber colour, the flavour is spicy and bitter-dry. <P> Beautiful golden color. Rather flat taste, still quite bitter. And all in the end a quite good palate.

2.4
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2002
Light lemon and fishy aroma. Dark golden color, white frothy head, good lace. Citrus flavor but rather neutral. Too thin. Long hopbitter finish.
