fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Lively hazy yellow to shimmery gold in color. Initial head nice and froathy yet dissipated quickly. Slight fruity/acidic aroma, somewhat earthy. The flavor reminds me of a nutterbutter cookie. Overall balance is very good.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUL 5, 2004
yeasty nose, sugar & alcohol in first sip, strong malts are sugary and cookie-like. Some strange buttery flavor in the finish.

Terminus (3272) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 26, 2004
Unfiltered and complex overall. Sweat and yeasty taste and not bitter for my taste. Nice looking and pleasent aroma. Great sipping beer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Cool bottle with the flip open top. Gigantic pillow-like head on top of a cloudy yellowish body. Yeasty, bread aroma. Sweet malt taste with a hint of bitterness in the finish. This stuff is beautiful to watch.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2004
Light blond color, hazy. Very nice aroma: malt, coriander, spices, lemon. Good Strong Belgian Ale, smooth (the aroma is its best feature).

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2004
Creamy head on a hazy golden body. Nose of yeast, hay, alcohol, figs and citrus. Sour/bitter flavor with a moulty fruit touch. Sour finish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2003
The beer pours a slightly hazy lemon yellow color with a grandiose head that is bright white in color, the texture frothy and as it slowly liquesces the lace forms a tight veil around the glass. The nose is lemon like with hints of banana, slightly sweet and sour, yeast also present with a bit of cloves a fine treat to the senses with the start ambrosial. Top is middling in its feel, the acidity meek, hops are unassuming in their presence, very dry and lingering aftertaste, a drinkable beer with the 8 percent ABV hidden well.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2003
Not A bad Belgian Ale.. Yeasty, hoppy, and spicey. Finishes clean, crisp, and warming.

Ernest (6319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Head is initially average sized, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (lemon, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of honey and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Whew, this sample seemed like it actually contained honey. Maybe I missed it before, or maybe it’s just an effect of aging, but the unaged mead similarity is significant. A bit uneventful in the mouth though.

rauchbier (3627) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Hazy straw gold, good fluffy white head and good condition. Tangy aroma with a spice and fruit note. Almost wit like but all fairly subdued. Apple fruitiness in the mouth, seems unlike an 8% beer until you swallow and get a backdraft of alcohol in your nose. A confusing beer that doesnt seem to know whether it wants to be a tripel, a Duvel clone or a Dutch Tarwebok.
