DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2008
Bottle in Quinns. Aroma is spicey and fruity yeast, typically belgian. Taste is similar, but its balanced enough to mak it drinkable and interesting.

thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Haderslev.
Pours a great, clear, shining golden with a fine, medium, creamy, white head. Very nice looks. Aroma is quite Saison-like, good crispy, biscuity malts, some vanilla, pear, oranges and a slight oaky note. High carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit more subdued than the aroma, some good maltiness, lightly acidic and a fair amount of pleasant, dry hoppiness. Nice surprise.

BoBoChamp (5382) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2008
33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, easy to drink, yet complex, cloudy, small head, nice brew, balanced

imdownthepub (10125) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2008
Bottled, 330ml at Kafee du Hopduvel, Ghent. Clouded orange with white head, hard carbonation. Quite strong pear drop aromas which lead to a sharp, acidic and drying beer. Nasal alcohol and reasonable hops, pretty reasonable.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has sweetness, notes of malt and light citrus and apple. The flavour has sweetness, a light citrussy bitterness, notes of malt, alcohol (quite a bit) and light hints of coriander and yeast. IMO the alcohol should be more subdued, and that makes the overall impression somewhat unbalanced.

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours hazy orange with a dense and white head. Light spiced and caramel malt aroma. Flavour is mildly sweetend and with a mellow yeast note mixed with a light spice note. Quite well balanced and smooth. Ends with a lingering smooth mix of the flavours.

mike_77 (3027) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2008
2008 Zythos Bier Festival, Belgium. Spicy, grassy aroma. Great balanced taste that is fresh and flavoursome with just a hint of sweetness coming through at the end.
