oh6gdx (24904) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2009
Bottled (from belgianshop.com). Deep golden colour with foamy big white head. Nice lace. Aroma is some grass, fruits, caramel malts as well as some mild herbal notes. Flavour is fruits, some sweet maltness as well as zest and some quite big grassyness in finish. Mild metallic notes as it warms up.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle from Jesse, thanx. A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of hops with fruits, like citrus and notes of caramel. The taste is sweet with bitter, fruity, orange and citrus. The aftertaste is some sweet with bitter.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2009
Bottle, Jan’s, Stoke Newington, London. Poured an amber colour with an off white dissipating head. Sickly sweet aroma which permeated into the flavour; which was caramel malt heavy mixed with some canned fruit and yeast notes. Definite acidic tinge to this and as a consequence not hugely enjoyable really.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2009
(Bottled, BBE 21.8.2010) Clear golden with a medium, frothy and lightly lacy head. Pale-malty, grainy, lightly caramely, dryish and acidic aroma. Caramely-malty, somewhat dull and acidic flavor with some aromatic, grassy hops. Medium body with medium, soft carbonation. Quite a disappointment, with dull flavor, and almost more in common with European strong lagers, than Belgian ales.

Jerre (3090) - Waregem, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2008
UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Bottle, 33 cl. (bought @ Van Uxeem) Almost clear darkgolden to amber color, with dark white head. Aroma malts, yeasts, bit spices. Medium body. Taste spice, fruity, some caramel, good malts, little sourness, and nice bitterness, dry end. I’m surprised but this is not a labelbeer. Good.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2007
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Initial aroma is a bit like vomit tinged with iron bru. Thankfully this doesnt last long. Sweet and fruity with a little spice and zesty tartness keeps it drinkable. Despite the shaky start not bad.

lululegrand (94) - gent, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2006
Tast at Taverne Flandria in Veurne. Amberbeer with a light colored to white foam. Nose is malty, bready and touches of cinnamon and dry fruits. The taste is mildy to dry with some spices and abrkoos fruits. No outspoken hops in the end.

JorisPPattyn (9250) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2006
Good yellowish-dense head over very hazy amber beer with an olive shine, pretty carbonated. Very yeasty nose, bit of citrus and - cumin? Sweet with both a little sourish (citrussy) and a little bitterish edge. A bit spicey, difficult to say exactly what - coriander? Also a bit of peach flavour. Medium bodied, quite well-filled really, slick. In the aftertaste, strangely a bit oxydized. Pretty standard Bavikhove, nothing bad.
