harrisoni (15314) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2007
75cl bottle. Imagine my surprise when I attended a Cross Channel Seminar for work and found that the buffet lunch afterwards was to be washed down with either English wine or French/Belgian beers. Good range of French Biere de Garde, but it was this one that caught my eye. So there I was at the Lees Cliff Hall in Folkestone overlooking the Channel and drinking good beer. Deep gold colour with a lasting off white head. Bready yeasty aroma (according to my boss) with typical Belgian yeast aroma. Reasonable fullness in the mouth, some spiciness, goodish carbonation. Dryish finish. I liked it. Alcohol is quite warming and prevalent. Good strong Belgian Ale.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2007
Bottle. Flowery aroma (chamomile and roses). Light copper in color with small but tight off-white head with. Flavor is more caramelly and hoppy than fruity and has a great deal of aftertaste from hops providing a nice bitterness. A good deal of acid can be found in the flavor too (from the yeast - not from an infection). Warming alcohol in the finish. A bit too hot but otherwise enjoyable,

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2007
750ml corked bottle. Underwhelming misty amber ale with a sniff of gently spicy fruit and some woodsmoky malt. Quite a nasty cardboardy background. Lingeringly bitter afters with a warming boozy afterburn. Creamily smooth but head vanishing too quickly. Cat sniffed it and leapt off the sofa like he’d been electrocuted. A harsh assessment, but a very ordinary strong ale.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Draught at Eulogy in Philadelphia and billed as a "Eulogy Exclusive". Poured nearly flat and filmy in a goblet. Clear and bright golden body with mild visible carbonation. Spicy nose with a lightly grainy malt edge and some banana esters. Medium sweet banana flavors with emergent bitterness. Slightly underattenuated with a light syrupy quality on the palate. Fair.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2006
0.33l bottle at home. Yellow with thin lasting head. Fruity and spicy aroma. Taste is quite spicy bitter with lasting bitterness. A bit to spicy for my taste.
