yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2005
UPDATED: APR 20, 2007 Bottle. Dense white head on top of a clear golden beer. Aroma is slightly sour, with spices, banana, citrus and yellow apples. Some alcohol as well. The taste is sweet, fruity and spiced, with hints of cellar and some alcohol. A quite nice medium-bodied beer with a warming mouthfeel and finish. The finish is spiced and with some fruits as well.

schuimkroaat (413) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2005
33 cl bottle, bbe July 07. Dark amber with a haze, unstable creamy off-white head, little pearling, no sediment. Gentle but pleasant round aroma of caramelised malt and liqueur. Sweet and alcoholic taste with a bitter aftertaste with liqueur. Smooth, solid palate with some carbonation.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2005
This is quite a potent Belgian Ale, coming in with an 8.5% ABV. It pours a clear golden color with a tall fizzy head that lingers just for a little while. The aroma is a warm toffee with a solid floral hopping, yeast, and sweet cherries and apples. The flavor is toffee with lemon zest and a blending of hop bitterness and peppery spiciness... very nicely done. The finish is pepper-hot with some alcoholic fire as well.

leaparsons (7930) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle. Deep gold with a white head. Aromas are sweet brown sugar with lots of spices, yeast and alcohol. Flavours are sweet malts, brown sugar with hints of lemon. Peppery on the palate with a fairly bitter finish then lots of "warming" alcohol.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
33 cl Bottle. No yeast in bottom. Golden colour with a fast disappearing foam. Very yeasty aroma, and some yeasty taste with notes of hops and you can feel the high alcohol in the aftertaste. An okey belgium ale but not one of my favorites. Try the donker and blonde much better.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2005
Clear golden beer with a nice white head. Aroma of fresh apples, coriander. Pretty sweet fruity start, ending with bitter hops. Lively carbonation, alcoholic finish. Pretty common story for a pretty common (good but not great) Belgian beer.

desmodus (1) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2005 does not count
Definately one of my favorites. But there is a huge difference between draught and bottles. Bottles are nothing special, but if you this beer on draught .... get it!

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
Middle-sized head on a golden body. Spicy, yeasty brew, with a bitter finish. Otherwise, nothing remarkable. Strong alcohol rating, I was almost drunk after drinking half of the 75 cl bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 He probado la botella de 1 litro, y ha esta me referire. Me parece una buena rubia., Aunque existen muchisimas cervezas belgas mucho mejores.
