Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2006
Bottle (from BItter Virtue, BB Jan 07). Fruity malty start with a smattering of hops. In the mouth a light tartness and then excessive fruity yeast which overwhelms any subtler flavours and leaves a cloying mouthfeel.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, big foamy head. Aroma is flowery and hoppy with hints of fruits. Flavour is fruity with some nutty hints. Also hops is present. Wellbalanced and ok. Aftertaste fruity and yeasty.

TBone (12566) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2006
Bottled, alc. 6.5% (BB 07/2007)
My 500th Belgian rating.
Hazy orange color, big orangy head. Sticky orange fruity-rye-alcoholic aroma. Fruity, yeasty, biter flavor - maybe some orange peels found too. Woody dryness in the aftertaste. Basic Belgian ale, not a real winner.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2006
Couleur dorée aux reflets orange pale, apparence semi translucide. Énorme mousse blanche tacheté de nature écumeuse. Arômes de métal, de levure, de foin et de verdure rappelant le houblonnage à froid. Saveurs de malt grillé, biscuité, et de pain sous une légère touche épicée (anis). Amertume modérée en finale. Cet embouteillage correspond définitivement à la nouvelle version décrite par Joris (Belgian ale). Bouteille 33 cl, T’Kroegske, Izegem, Décembre 2005.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
schuimkroaat (418) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 33 cl bottle, bbe Jan 07. Deep amber, abundance of large bubbles; hefty and stable, rocky head with a good lace. Aroma: caramel, lightly fermented plums, old bread, some light woody notes and very gentle hops. Taste: malty with light caramel and a good, slightly acidic fruity (apples? oranges?) background. The long, dry aftertaste mixes sharp hop bitterness with nut oils. A very good balance. Almost greasy on the palate, slightly astringent and well carbonated.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2005
Bottled, RBESG -05. Amber colour, off-white head. Nice candy-like, sweetish malt-juicy flavour, with notes of dark fruits.

DanielBrown (3825) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle (maybe) at Plan B during RBESG 05 pub crawl. Smells like a Dubbel. Light toasty brown, with a small fluffy head. Very sweet - ginger biscuits, brown sugar etc. No balance really, just smooth and easy to drink. OK.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle. Quite flat and sweet. Touches of soy, and then some apple and berry fruit. The mouthfeel felt quite flat and empty.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2005
Dark amber, quite decent white head. Aroma from dark fruits and malts with small hints of almond. Sweet-ish flavour with a little spicyness. Malts here too. Slight acidic finish.
