Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
It’s a dark golnden beer with a huge head and a sweet aroma with notes of citrus/fruit. I get the same notes in the flavour, that also has nice notes of caramel and is smooth and balanced. It’s a nice little Marsian, and if all of them are like this one, the don’t seem like a threat form out of space - even if more of them at once might make you feel sick....

Bottle. Hazy amber coloured with an off white ehad. Sweet aroma of caramel, dried fruits and fruits. Flavour of fruits, dried fruits and caramel with notes of yeast and spices.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle. (6.5%) Hazy, golden beer with an off-white head leaving nice lacings. Fruits, spice-notes, pale malt and a tiny note of vomit in the aroma. Fortunately, the vomit scent was weak and far in the background. Quite sweet in the mouth, with some alcohol and spices, as well as pale malt. Quite nice and quaffable. (070914)

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2007
Tasted as well a 4.8 % from bottle as a 6.5 % from bottle. A little sour and some sweetnes in the body. Just a fine beer

harrisoni (15005) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2007
Bottle at Moeder Lambic. Amber, thick beige head. Some toffee, more of an amber than a saison (it was down on the menu as a saison). But the hop on the finish is decent. Candy sugar in body. Fine, not exciting.

thebeertourist (5077) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle. Clear, deep red amber with a big, lacing tan head. Caramel and grainy aroma. Very sweet, spicy flavours with emphasis on grains. I cannot master the great enthusiasm for this one. Sorry.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2007
Beautiful, hazy amber color; generous head. Light aroma of caramel and grains. Medium body strength, the flavor is based on some sweet caramel and malt, with some good influences from the yeast; the bitterness is correct; but it’s a quite plain one, not exciting.

goozen (3371) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle 0,33ltr: Perhaps this an Belgian Märzen or Maibock. Its has orange/amber looks and caramel/orange taste.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle from the Belgian Belly. Erm... pretty poor effort. Sweet and lifeless, nothing to shout about by any means.
