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 (16047) - 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 (5157) - 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 (17458) - 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 (3581) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2007

MesandSim (7118) - 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.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from uto. Amber with spotty white head. Ornate lace. Nose of oranges and hops. Taste is of spicy cider apples, oranges and caramel. Finish is slightly metallic, but overall of sweet fruits. Creamy, medium body. Very drinkable. A nice moderate brew.

MoritzF (9015) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
(bottle, with thanks to bierkoning!) Almost clear, amber to copper colour with mid-sized, slowly lacing tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet, slightly dusty toast-malty aroma with caramel, subtle fruity (berries, dates) and noticeable alcoholic notes. Sweet flavour, medium body, smooth carbonation. Toast-malty taste with caramel and a subtle fruitiness; sweet, slightly spicy and bitter finish with a bit of alcohol coming through. Decent brew.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2007
(Bottled) Hazy reddish amber with a medium, frothy-lacy head. Sweet-sour, berryish aroma with some yeast, flowery hops, and hints of metal. Spicy, very malty, berryish and slightly tart flavor with a sweetish finish, and hints of alcohol. Medium-bodied palate with smooth, but a bit fizzy carbonation. A quite nice, malty and balanced ale.
