TBone (14897) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2005
Bottled (BB 01/2006)
Golden color, not much head. Malty, rye bread aroma. Medium-bodied, malty, a bit harsh-bitter and alcoholic. Nothing really wrong with this, but simple and in the class B of "Belgium" ales.

Crockett (1054) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
Pours gold with a short white head. Corny malt with faint minty hop aroma. A bit too mediciney to be pleasing. Not the freshest bottle either. Cellared for about a year. Had it before, neither exciting at either sample. Predominated by a detergents, cedar, and some juniper. Carrots, crackers. Syruppy mouthfeel and flat as the carbonation has no "pick-up". Herbacious and not really sweet. Has just enough malts to back it up. Dry stale finish. Just doesn’t taste good.

Tap, Café Morshuis Albergen. Hopbitter flavor. Stony, lke beer has been lagered over a heap of stones. Nice mouthfeel. Pleasant beer.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2005
clear gold, white head. intense floral hop and clean malt aroma more like a strong lager than a belgian. sweet bready malt beginning going quite dry and hoppy.

caesar (6170) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2005
Draft, Kafe Belgie. Clear yellow color, medium white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, some spice, bit floral. Pleasant bitter and slightly dry taste. Nice balance for a Budels beer, which are usually not the best. Probably the draft version is better than the bottled version, because than the beer is somewhat softer and less outspoken in taste.

Papsoe (25068) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2005
(Botle 30 cl) Pilsener golden with a small, white head. Fresh, floral, hoppy nose. Quite malty with a weak, underlying sweetness which is quickly blown away by dry, bitter hops. This lacks some body. Somehow this appears more like a strong German pilsener - it really hasn’t got much of an ale-feel. Unusual. 220705

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2010 After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained normale carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clearblond color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a malty touch. This beer smells fruity.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2005
Grainy malts and grassy, herbal hops in the mild, sweet aroma. Clear golden body is topped with a swirl and ring of large-bubbled white head. Very sweet cherry flavour with light finishing bitterness that lasts on the tongue. Syrupy yet watery with moderately prickly, if short-lived carbonation. Stemmed glass, allowed to warm from fridge temp. Bottle (trade, Jun-05). Thanks, radiomgb!

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2005
Thin head. Color is a little too yellow for my liking. Aromas of sour cherries, port, and maybe a little peach. Upfront bitterness with a smooth sweet if finish. However it leaves an astringent taste in the back of my mouth. Also, feels too sweet in my mouth. Cheers!

DanielBrown (4268) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2005
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Lagery aroma, with a hint of strawberry. Smooth malty ale - very Kolsch-like, with a slightly vodka finish, which suggests a smooth hit of alcohol, into a long aftertaste. Fairly plain malt, but a lightness and a final hit boosts things. This is OK.
