Had this at Bon Vivant Beer Lover's Club on 7-25-03. Hazy blond with a fluffy dry white head. The nose has a lightly sweetened, yeasty, and spicy character. The taste is wonderful with more spice and yeast coming through and possibly citrus fruit rind. Finishes a little dry but with some of the spice and a little bitterness remaining. Great beer!

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Cloudy gold with a small, quickly dissipating head. The cork popped HARD to the ceiling, though, so there's definitely some carbonation. Sweet, mildly spicy, mildly alcohol aroma with some slightly sour tones. Kind of like a very gently spiced orange. Flavor is not very rich. It's a little like McDonald's orange soda with a 1:2 ratio with club soda. Not much to it. Gets richer as it warms, but still not great. It's more like tonic water with a twist of orange zest.

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Cloudy Brown, with a sturdy head. Faint Maple and hops aroma. I t actually smells good, and I'd rate "aroma" higher if the odor was a bit stronger. Big Maple and banana flavor, and a velvety smooth texture. Finishes with a crisp peppery finish. A very filling and satisfying beer.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 10, 2003
A really good wheat ale, but with the higher alcohol content one might come to expect from a Belgian. A little more tingle than most wheat ales, more carbonation. Lovely golden color, less murky than most wheat ales and possibly with less body but the tingle makes up for it somewhat. A truly delightful brew

Frank (2863) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 Golden with maybe the slightest haze. About a quarter inch of head with very little lace. Mildly fruity aroma. Flavor is much stronger and loaded with cloves. Very soft mouthfeel. Perfect carbonation. Most delicious.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2003
Make sure you have glass and papertowel ready when opening this one. Beautiful very large, frothy, white head - that diminishes slowly. Golden colour. Aroma; wheat, banana, yeast, spice. Taste; sweet, spice, little acidic and bitter. Smooth. Very nice.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Bright gold with huge head. Sour apples and horseradish in the nose. Sweet and light start which slowly fades to a tart dry end. Sweets & sours battle for the aftertaste. Biscuity middle. Light and refreshing.

argo0 (11530) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Cloudy golden with small, dissipating, off-white head. Aroma is mild -- some spice (coriander), orange, somewhat sweet. Not very flavorful, but what there is is spiced and orange. Finishes with an alcohol warming. Highly carbonated.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2003
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Bottle: Poured a dark yellowish ale with a large head that disapear quickly. Typical Tripel but not as good as Westmalle. Good taste of wheat. Overall not my favorite but still very refreshing

'Zwijntje' means actually something like 'little boar'. I drunk this beer at an inn in Belgium with a dish full of boar. A picture was taken so maybe something nice for a new avatar. The beer is a typical belgian blonde ale, bit stronger in ABV though. Smells refreshing, fruity. The beer is yellow coloured, lasting frothy head. Refreshing taste, typical blonde like. fruity, some honey and hops, more bitter palate. Descent brew.

Smells like citrus and spices. Very ugly residu. Makes you wonder if the beer is still okay. But taste is okay, spicy, citrus. Typical triple. Bit too typical.
