ogivlado (5791) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 29, 2006
Bottled(330ml). –Shared with Doggythedog at the Hopdevil in Zagreb
Stronger and inferior version of original Augustijn. Slight hazy pale amber coloured, huge quick-disappearing white head. Aroma is malty, slight yeasty and spicy with mild citric notes. Light sweet alcoholic finish.

Marko (3965) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2006
Bottle at the Hopdevil shared with ozujsko
Poured a huge fluffy white unstable head on dop of a gold/amber body. The nose is ok... yeast, some lemon, grain and alcohol. The taste is spicy, yeasty, some maltiness, chewy hopiness, lemon, some malt and alcohol. A good tripel "diluted with alcohol" (yeah, I know it isn’t). Warming and not unpleasant, but definitely not all that great.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2006
Bottle at De Zotte. A nice ale with a taste of orange. Tangy and sweet. The ale fades out with little carbonation. Slight (high) alcohol taste.

Theis (13537) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
Bottle at home. Unclear light yellow - white head. Wheat, citrus, straw, yeast, licorice, nice hopped, but a bit boring.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2006
Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Fruity, spicy aroma. Spicy yeast in the flavour some black pepper and a touch of alcohol when cold. Not bad.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2006
Hazy golden colour with a thin foamy white head. Malty, yeasty and spicy aroma and taste with a vague alcohol note. Dry, spicy finish.

joergen (21072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle. Hazy yellow coloured with a huge white ehad. Aroma of fruits, yeast and spices. Flavour of fruits, yeats, spices, marzipan and alcohol. Disappointing.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
Stefano (1880) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2006
Hazy golden. Yeasty, vineous aroma. The flavor is dominated by sweetness combined with a mixture of spices, I think corriander is one, a quite nice combination of sweetness and spicyness. In the middle the alcohol runs prickling over the tongue.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2006
(33cl bottle) Purchased at the Strath in Victoria. Pours a clouded, golden body with a foamy white head. Nose if very perfume with a malted core. This beer can very well be what all Belgian Ales should be compared to (like Guinness is to Stouts). Great oily texture, very brown sugar maltedness and clove elixir finish. Good.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2006
Hazy golden straw colour with lots of foamy white head. Aroma was sugary with noticeable alcohol and slightly musty. Some yeastiness in the flavour and malts but rather thin and quite boozy.
