Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Born as "Cuvée Antwerpen" when this city was the cultural capital of the EU in 1993. Hazy, dark amber - not much head. Very soft mouthfeel, some caramel and spices. And also some typical De Koninck fruitiness. A bit like what you would expect if you took the standard De Konick and added another 3% alcohol. Nice one. 260695

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2004
Bottled. Clear deep amber. Sweet. Brown sugar and caramel is dominant. The mouthfeel is clean and rounded, interruptedby a slightly spicy, hoppy finsih with some bitterness. Flawless, quite pleasant but fairly middle-of-the road, as far as Belgian ales are concerned.

Oakes (15664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2002
On tap at the White Horse, Parson’s Green...dark amber; sweet, very malty; candyish notes. Maybe it was just the change of pace from all those English beers, but I liked it.
