dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Beautiful belgian blond ale. Golden in colour with a beigish head. Beautiful fruity aroma and corriander notes. Beautiful balanced fruity flavour and again corriander and some curacao come through. Reminds me of Unibroue's Don De Dieu. Great head retention.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 14, 2003
A slightly unclear orange beer with a small but fast disappearing head. The aroma is fresh and powerful with notes of sweetness, alcohol, and fruit. The flavor is lovely, containing notes of alcohol, maltsweetness, and ending on a slight bitterness. A beer with a great balance.

argo0 (11637) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Clear golden with medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, Belgian yeast, alcohol -- suggests a light body, yet a powerful one. Taste is fairly sweet, yeasty, spicy (orange peel, coriander), with warming alcohol in the swallow. Full-bodied, mildly carbonated.

bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2003
Huge head. Hoppy and honeyish, just a bit smoky aroma.Sweet and very fruity with orange, pineapple and melon. Not much hopbitterness in the flavor. Rather bland and flat, but still the taste is ok.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2003
UPDATED: APR 21, 2006 This beer has a goldenyellow body - hue apperance and a fine white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is acid with a light acid afther tast.

The Etruscan (544) - Tuscany, ITALY - JAN 4, 2003
Weak white headed. Golden bright color. Aroma is malty with light grainy, herbal and hoppy notes. Flavor is malty too with a nice wheaty taste, ending in a slighly bitter and short finish. Light to medium bodied.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2002
The wheat is very obvious. I don’t like it. It gets a little sickly. Otherwise quite thin and watery.
