Tap at Hopleaf, Chicago. Big, creamy head(served in De Koninck Boleke). Slightly fruity, malt laden aroma. Big, malty, smooth beer with a nice touch of Saaz hopping to pepper the malt, especially the finish. Very lager-like finish to me...this one is best on tap, I think.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Bottle via JoeM, thanks: Reddish amber hue with nice frothy off-white head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of candi sugar, ripened apples and pears, orange zest, aromatic and grassy hops, light caramel, and zest yeast esters. The taste starts with a bittersweet note, some malt and a acidic fruit content. Zesty and bitter finish with a dose of pepper. The feel is lively but a bit thin. Refreshing for a Belgian Ale, a session style brew. A like this more than average ratebeerian I guess.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 14, 2004
Peachy orange w/ brown hues. Small, soapy, whitehead. Smells of rich malt, raisins and cherries. Sweet malt taste with wheat, cherries, dates, figs, alcohol. Medicinal aftertaste leaves bad impression. you could do a lot better.

raymow (1084) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Nice reddish-orange color with a decent Belgian flavor. Has a bit of a harsh, slightly metallic aftertaste. Not bad, but not one of the better Belgian beers that Iíve had.

reddish brown, good medium steady head, lace. Citric and floral aroma, like dish washing cleanser. Thin mouthfeel, malty, some lemon and hops. Watery.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Frothy head over a deep amber body, this baby carries a doughy aroma with a quickly fading hint of spiciness. A bit of a caramel flavoring, smooth on the malt. Disinteresting mouthfeel with a mildly hopped finish. Iíll accept a freebee on my next one of these.

330ml bottle, Safeway, room temp. Frothy, off-white diminishing head, fair lacing. Clear red/amber body, filtered, lightly carbonated. Nutty toffee aroma. Medium mouthfeel, nutty malt taste with nice dryish hop finish.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Bolleke Draught. Brown color with a small white head. Slight malt in aroma, not much else. Flavor is yeasty and has spice. There is an ending with sweet malt and slight bitterness.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Pours a hazy golden brown, with a weak head (and poor retention at that); yet it is lively and effervescent. The smell is of bread, fruit, and a grassy background. The flavor has a crisp start, sweet middle and a dry, spicy finish. The feel is smooth and slippery with a balanced effervescence and a lingering dryness.

JonMoore (2024) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2004
Bottle Safeway. Amber coloured with a short-lived tan head. Aroma is hops, malts and some fruit. Hoppy and fruity flavour with some background malt. Very mild, bordering on bland. Slightly carbonated, mdium bodied, medium to thin mouthfeel. OK but I was expecting better.
