Flipbrewer (33) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Dark amber with an off-white head; typical "Belgian" aroma (which I perceive as a spicy-floral, fruity, musty-leathery complex of aromas); med-dry maltiness with a mild fruitiness and low key hop bitterness; medium bodied. A refreshing, lower gravity Belgian ale that I like to have when my palate is maxed out on the bigger varieties but still craves the flavor.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 13, 2003
This beer was ok, fairly standard for a Belgian pale ale style. Nice and easy drinking, but nothing to make me feel like I needed another one. I quickly moved on to a duvel that I saw on the menu, you should too.

imdownthepub (10738) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Deep Amber beer with fluffy lasting white head. Little nose initially, but a spicy, bananaish flavour comes though. There is a malty background and a dry finish, but overall a little thin on flavour.

heykevin (1277) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - AUG 12, 2003
Strightforward light hop aroma. Nice estery yeast profile layered on a fairly solid malt backbone. Good medium strength belgian. If this were on tap @ a local, I would enjoy it regularly.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2003
UPDATED: APR 14, 2004 On draught at Belgian Beer Café Belle Vue, Kiev, Ukraine. Amber color with a fine head. Discrete hoparoma. Nicely balanced in a mix of hops and malt with a fine bitterness.

larsniclas (5783) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
Golden with a thick head. A fruity aroma. A wellbalanced beer with a sourish and fruity flavour and some late bitterness.

Dark Belgian beer... solid taste...good flavor... not overly impressive though...

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2003
Almost an abbey, pours thick with a caramel aroma. Spiciness that could be cinnamon or vanilla is a big part of the flavor. There is some dark fruit also present, though this appears more towards the end. All in all a very enjoyable beer - weaker and less complex than many Belgian ales, but still interesting.

schepers (32) - Limburg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2003
Has a sweet aroma and a dry bitter flavor, could be stronger. Not the best, but surely not the worst. Nice color.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 12, 2003
On tap at The Belgique in Amsterdam. Some tang and good hop aroma. Slightly tangy and good bitter flavors. Great refreshing ale.
