lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Picked this one up in a supermarche in Grenoble, France. Pours a clear brgith copper with a thin but creamy ivory colored head. Smell is spicy and fruity. Hints of mandarin orange and orange soda. Taste has a pronounced yeastiness. Spicy (nutmeg and light pepper), lightly fruity and lightly metallice. Low alcohol flavors giving off vanilla, caramel and orange peel. Creamy and well balanced. Smooth yet definitely a slow sipping beer. Lots going on and I can honestly say I’ve never tasted anything quite like it.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2006
Lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Light orange peels and coriander over the sweet candy sugar and honey. In mouth, a good surprising rich malt, with notes of honey, hops, coriander, rich, perfumey and smooth. At the Mondiale, June 2006.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2006
Clearish golden body wearing a light white ring. Very spicy and remarkably integrated nose appeals to the senses with coriander, sage and various herb extracts that blend into the timid, but present maltiness and soft backing leafy hops. In mouth, algae-like earthy herbs meet sand-like dryness that is backed by a light lactic character. Supporting flavours of fruits, namely orange and papaya speak of the underlying maltiness and juiciness. A bit watery in the mouth, light-medium bodied, the light carbonation shows pretty able, but it could be more lively.

creamy with a clove finish, and just looks awful. I like it but basically I’ve had it before, it’s nothing to write home about

this beer looks like a miller light. However, and more importantly, its a very drinkable beer. Nice and yeasty aroma, real fresh. I hardly would believe the beer contains 8% abv, as its covered so well by the nice creamy taste and velvety soft mouthfeel. For a beer that looks so weak, it really was a pleasure to drink

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2003
Beautiful clear bronze colour, decent head to start with, fading however and leaving some OK lace. Smells a bit raisiny, spicy and yeasty and a bit floral (hops). Sweetish and raisiny (and a bit toasty), with a fair bit of spice. Packed full of flavour, slightly cloying, syruppy mouthfeel, but balanced by the hops at the end, tasty.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 23, 2004
Pours a semi cloudy pink gold. With a whispy white head. Sweet butery Belgian aroma. Very formidable flavor. Agressive and woody at first, it immediately softens up into a nice, broad maltyness.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Light and clear, looks like a low alcohol pilsner. Well hopped, with a good piney aroma. Light body with a rich full flavor. Finishes a bit sour.

Quevillon (2407) - Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2006
Bu au Mondial de la Bière 06. Blonde typique, petit collet. Arome d’houblon malté. Très sucré, un peu houblonneux.

Pours a lightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is orange and spice. Taste is smooth and juicy with orange peel. Standard Belgian but pretty good.
