I had this on tap at Den Acker's in Capetown Victoria Square. A very smooth and low alcohol content belgium with a rich amber colorful appearance and a fruity drinkable aftertaste.

Bottle. Amber with very small head. Fruity, soft, little citrus, low carbonation. Uninteresting.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Beer pours (in flute glass) a dark golden colored liquid with a small amount of off white head that dissipates quickly to near nothing. Aroma is of a watered down wheat beer. Flavor is watered down, hoppy grass, straw, vegetal, but wheatish as well. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2004
orange peel, malt and yeast with hints of a flowery bouquet on the nose. light amber with nice head and carbonation. not terribly complex while still being flavoursome, spicy with citrus and slightly floral and yeasty. slightly bitter with light body. enjoyable and at just 5%abv you can have a few over a meal without getting too intoxicated.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - FEB 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 Clear bronze apearance, well carbonated, decent head formation. Toasted malt, grainy aroma with a touch caramel and a touch of spice. Sweet, clovey palate, lightly malty flavors, good bitterness in the finish. 7-3-7-3-15

February 2005: Cask @ Wetherspoon’s Scunthorpe
Fairly clear reddish appearance. Rich malty, fruity, mildly spiced aroma. Sweet fruity flavor, mild clovey spice. Interesting cask version.

flemdawg (540) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Reddish orange hue with almost no head at all. The aroma seemed all wrong to me. For a beer thats listed as a belgian ale, it did not smell like any I have tried, but maybe I just need more practice. The best I can descibe it is to say the aroma was like a sweet pilsner. Not impressed with the taste either. At least not as a Belgian. That being said, its not a bad taste. Hoppy and bitter with a drawn out finish that was quite pleasant. Not what I would consider an example of the style, but a good beer none the less.

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2004
Amber color, meidum light head. Flowery, pretty malty, a bit sweet, notes of yeast and fruits in aroma. Medium body, smooth and balanced, maybe a bit watery texture. Flavor is moderately bitter, sweet, malty, a bit dry, notes of yeast and a bit acidic. Finish is dryer and acidic. Pretty good Belgian ale.

omhper (20923) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2004
Sampled draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Amber colour, clear, small creamy head. Flowert caramel aroma. Sweet and mild with light fruitiness and yeastiness. There's some toffee and a light hoppiness that leads to an intensely flowery finish with medium bitterness. Uncomplicated, but enjoyable easy drinking Belgian ale.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2006 (Bottled) Very hazy reddish amber color with a small, slightly lacy head. Sourish toffee aroma with some vinous feel. Balanced, but a bit dull. Sourish-grainy, toffee-malty, peppery, pretty dry flavor with smooth hops in the background. Medium-bodied, dryish palate with medium carbonation. A well-made and balanced, very basic brew with nothing to remember in good or bad. Should make a nice session beer. (Bottled, rated May 17, 2004, was 6-3-6-3-12=3.0) Nice, deep amber color with a small and diminishing head. Hoppy, a bit yeasty and pepper-spicy, bitter-like aroma. Bitter, dry and peppery flavor, that fades very fast. Light to medium-bodied, dry palate. Quite characterless, below average ale (in the Belgian scale).
