jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2007
Bottled. Aroma is just sweet citrus but nice. Yellow color, white firm head, good lace. Light maltsweet, well hopped, citrus, medium body. Straightforward but still flavoful. A bit sweeter than Duvel but a quality brew and certainly can compete with that one.

janubio (390) - SPAIN - APR 6, 2007
I bought a pack with two blondes, two rouges and the four handled mug. This one pours a pale golden colour, with a correct head that doesn’t last long, but leaves a good lace. Spicy aroma of coriander, cloves and maybe cardamome, with vanilla notes. Taste is spicy, but with some sweetness. Coriander, cinnamon and a bit fruity. Alcoholic, and a dry aftertaste.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 1, 2007
(Bottle, BB 16/03/07) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with an average egg-white head. Aroma of mustiness, lemon, and butter. Flavor of spicy yeast, hops, sweet corn, and candi sugar.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2007
Small white head shrinks quickly. Hazy light orange body. Sweet tropical fruit aroma with coriander and other spice notes. Taste is deep light and fruity, spicy with coriander and cinnamon. Dry, dusty aftertaste of spices. Very nice, and dangerously drinkable for an 8.5% beer. (0.33l bottle.)

diabel (1605) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2007
Bottle Clear blond body. White, creamy head, which lasts quite long. Faint aroma of hops. Lightly bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Very unbalanced flavour, alcoholly with some spices. Especially in the end it’s very nasty, so didn’t like it at all and it even seems quite amateuristic.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
Bottle. Decent blonde. Some cheesy aromas. Palate was citrusy/yeasty, with some nice peppery spice in the finish. very pleasant. warming alcohol in the finish.

Bov (9255) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 8, 2006
pale golden-yellow colour with almost no foam remaining; aroma of vanilla, coriander and alcohol; solid malt body; high carbonation; the sweetness is partially balanced by a dry bitter finish which shows more spicy and alcoholish notes - after some hesitation, I decided that I like it

oh6gdx (20238) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2006
Bottled. Pale yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white foamy head. Yeast, strawberries, sweet fruits, caramel and some malts in aroma. Flavour is yeasty, spicy, slightly fruity and caramelly. Also has alcohol sticking quite much. Hayish dry palate. Strong yeasty and earthy aftertaste.

thebeertourist (4761) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle. Clear, pale yellow-golden colour with a big white head. Yeasty and sweet malts aroma. Quite sweet flavours, with yeastiness and ,I suspect, spices (coriander?) bringing in some complexity. Full-bodied. A bit too sweet for my liking, thoug I like the yeastiness.
