Nice brown color with a nice beige head. The taste is sweet and fruity with notes of fruits and cherries. It features a nice complex slight bitter finish.

heykevin (1280) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Vaguely fruity aroma, with a touch of coriander. Weird spiciness, can't tell whether its yeast spice or by addition. Caramelly sweet, some special B character as well, with a strong minerally iron oxide flavor, rather bloodlike. The iron oxide flavor is too much for me I just can't handle it. Maybe it's part of the reason I didn't like the Saaz as well. I really can't drink this.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2003
Hopefully I'm rating this under the correct beer - it is their 'dark'. Fruity aroma, corriander and/or orange peel (I can't distinguish these two), bicuit, and chocolate malt. Dark brown-red in color, minimal head. Flavor is dominated by malt, toasty and biscuity (special roast?) with subtle corriander/orange peel notes. Balance is close to even, maybe slightly sweet. Mild hop presence in the flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Interesting interpretation of a dubbel - has the malt character, and the spices add unique complexity. Similar to Binchoise or Caracole. I like it.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2004 2001 Rating, Large format 2L bottle
This beer was had from the impressive 2 liter bottles. This beer has a fruity aroma to it. It is a nice brown color with a good amount of head to it. Well carbonated. The taste is exquisite, a bit tart, a bit sweet with a taste that is evocative of apricots. This beer was very enjoyable. I really enjoyed the fruity yeast character, the apricot flavor was wonderful.

Rating, small format bottle, January, 2004
As I pop the swing top bottle it pops suddenly and a whisp of gun smoke follows. This beer pours a deep red color, and is topped by a pale tan head. It is very well carbonated. Aromas of candied fruit, fruit cake, cherries and a general sweet character waft from my glass. There is almost a fake fruitiness to this beer. The taste is quite a bit drier than the aroma would suggest. The fruitiness is here in the taste and still has the falseness to it in the finish as well. No acidity to this beer, unlike the large format (2L) bottle I had in 2001. Not nearly as good either. The fake fruitiness is a bit distracting, it seems to be a fermentation byproduct perhaps.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2003
On the pour a deep garnet color with a planetary sized head, frothy in texture, and a light tan color, as it slowly dematerializes a velum like sheet of lace is formed to conceal the glass. The aroma of caramel, malted grains, a bit of yeast, almost cotton candy sweet with the start quite sweet and lightly malted, top is a bit thin in feel. Finish is lenient in its acidity, the hops pleasing in their spiciness, nicely dry and once again drinkable beers, but not any thing to shout about, got some in the stash; let’s see how they are this time next year.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Second-tier Belgian brown ale. Thin body, not as creamy or as malty as I expect from a good Belgian Brown. I won't be buying this again.

rauchbier (3639) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Deep chestnut, excellent off white rocky head, slight overcondition. Spicy corriander, malt and yeast aromas. Quite thin in the mouth with fruity raisins and a metallic maltiness. Malty yeast bitter finish. None of the Bon Secours beers are anything special, but this is the best of the lot.

Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2003
The aroma is very sweet with notes of sugar, yeast - a lovely complex aroma. The color is an unclear brown and it has a beutiful light brown head. The flavor is sweet, yeasty, and soft with notes of rich fruit and plums. The alcohol prickles the tongue. It ends on a slight bitterness - a very nice beer.

Bottle from JBrus. Murky-orange. Citric flavors: Orange, lemon. Some pear also. Yeastiness throughout, I liked.

Nuffield (3732) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2003
Intriguing aroma with grape; odd flavor--slightly sour, notable presence of malts and yeast. Good color and lacing. Something root beer like here, but also something enjoyable despite a thin palate.
