joergen (21291) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2006
Bottle. Cloudy golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts, fruits, spices and caramel. Flavour of malts, caramel and fruits. A bit watery.

sayravai (4673) - 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 (423) - 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 (7416) - 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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2005
Big estery fruity aroma, with apricot notes. Some subtle caramel aromas behind that too. Amber in colour with a small beige head. Sweetish start, with a fruity mid and finish. Dry, yet not bitter. Drinkable but nothing special.

omhper (19797) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2005
Bottled. Dark amber, brief head. Sweet and buttery with some lingonberries and almonds. Light bodied with soft, velvetty mouthfeel. Well balanced, and very drinkable for a Belgian ale.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2005
a sim rate: Cool. It tastes like a cross between Palm and Grimbergen Brune. Creamy, yeasty aroma. Virtually no head. It tastes very much like a standard ale. Very long, creamy finish.
