jde123 (766) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2004
This beer pours a beautiful orange with a frothy head that dissipates quite rapidly. Very faint aroma, not sure if I am smelling the beer or something else, but from what I can make out, smells of citrus and yeast. On first drink it was slightly acidic but blossomed into a silky coating of the tongue, nice. Decent taste, slightly bitter finish but still pleasant. I would buy this again.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Gold, vast fluffy white long lasting head and good condition. Faintly melon and honey in the nose with some background hoppiness. Spicy honey, grain and a hint of apple but quite smooth in the mouth, finishes sweetly with malt and yeast most apparent. Back label states "Moederbier Augustijn" (mother beer Augustijn) but whether this means it is the same beer or a tweaking of the recipe only a side by side tasting will tell.
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2003 Total Score: 3.6
Bottle Conditioned. Honey gold colour, good thick head and slight overcarbonation. Apple aromas and grain, some spiciness in the mouth and a smooth malty finish.

2004-02-XX. Golden body with big white head. Zesty yeast aroma. Fairly straightforward flavour profile with some citrusy spice notes to mix it up a bit. Met or exceeded my expectations. 6/3/6/3/14 - 3.2 Bottle from LCBO

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Very large fully lasting creamy head. Clear medium amber body with a little bit of haze at the end of the bottle. Aroma is sweet lemon yeast with some minty cream corn. Nice medium body. A bit of yeasty fruit taste with a slightly dry finish.

thedm (5028) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2004
This bottled brew poured an extremely large head of foamy white colored long lasting bubbles. The body was slightly hazy carbonated and yellow in color. After pouring again from the bottle when the bubbles settled down, I got to the yeast in the bottom of the glass. It then poured a pretty swirling brown yeast into the mug. The aroma was malty and contained some mild citrus notes. The mouth feel was vinous and tingly with a strong clove overdrive. The flavor was made up of clove coriander citrus and malty notes.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Bottle. This beer poured a huge white head that was frothy with fine-medium sized bubbles that completely dissipated. The body was transparent and softly carbonated with a yellow hue. The nose was fruity and spicy as was the flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth and this beer had a light-medium texture with sparse lacing.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2004
11.2 oz capped bottle: pours a translucent light pink/peach colour with a soda-pop bubbly head that falls into fizzy patches. Estery aroma with perfume, yeast, grapefruit rind, cloves and cold sourdough. Strong spiciness right up front, but a good blend of soft fruits makes this enjoyable: oranges, passion fruit, pomegranates, lemons, and mangos blend well with the yeast and good bit of alcohol. Finish is well carbonated and juicy. Tasty.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Beer pours (in flute glass) a medium orange golden colored liquid with virgin white head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin film. Aroma is of straw, grass, vegetal. Flavor is slightly hoppy, mixed with straw and grass. Nothing out of the ordinary. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Bottle pours a nice clear gold color with not a very big head that reduces to surface lace and some side lace. The aroma is of fruit, spice, and yeast. The flavor is a nice combination of the fruit (white grape), spice, yeast, and hop that produces a real nice balanced Tripel. The palate is smooth, rich, and carbonated. Overall, this is pretty good.
