reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Cask from Beer Cricus’s LBBF ’05 (02.07.05). The best thing I remember about this beer was the pronunciation - is it tu-neck-ee or tawn-uh-kee? Everytime I said it one way, someone would correct me and claim it was the other way. Didn’t spoil my experience though. Cloudy amber in colour with foamy head. Aroma of toffee and spice. Sweet-ish taste with a spicy edge and lemon notes. Grassy finish? Probably hops. Fairly standard, but no less good.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2006
Draught, light amber coloured, with some light carbonation and an average white head. Sweet malty aroma, clear roasted caramel hints. Full body, little sweet roasted. Finish is sweet-bitter with some light herby touches. Average belgian ale.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Jun 06). Sweet caramel malty nose with lots of pear drop. Sweet easy going body. The combination of pear drops and sweetness had an almost artificial feel which didnt sit well with me.

joergen (26209) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2006

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2006
Nice, hazy red-amber color with a small but lasting head. Very caramely-malty, slightly raw, toffeeish aroma. The flavor is raw-malty, caramely and quite sugary. Medium-bodied palate with smooth carbonation. Interesting brew - I really expected a pils, looking at the bottle. Is this barrel-aged? Not bad for its ABV, although quite sugary.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 25 cl bottle, bottled/’bbe’ = ? Amber-copper colour, scarce turbidity, very weak head. Fruity (apples, raisins) and vinous aroma revealing also caramel, a hint of bread and some yeast. Malty taste with the same fruitiness as in the nose. Light spicy background, light hoppy aftertaste. A bit soapy palate.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Beer #21 at Croydon Draught Belgian Beer Festival. Hardly a blockbuster in Belgian terms. I don’t know whether my palate was becoming a bit jaded but for three beers in a row my notes said "not a lot going on". An amber coloured beers. Touches of sweetish caramel. Mellow and easy-going. Nothing really stands out, but its a decent session beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
Draught@The belgian draught beer festival, Croydon, London. Quite non-descript and quite light bodied. Some malty caramel and nuts, with a yeasty, citrus finish, nice and soft, but nothing out of this world.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2005
Draught @ East Croydon, Belgian Beer Fest. Golden body with a rich snow white head. Curvaceous and sexy this beer was a-ok by me. The Marilyn Monroe of beers, it had curves and interest in all the right places.
