Draught at the Poechenellekelder, Brussels. Hazy golden color with creamy head. Sweet and herbal-hoppy aroma with notes of orange. Bittersweet, grainy, oily and herbal flavor with notes of bitter orange. Firm bitter finish. Some witbier notes in the aroma and flavor. Very tasty!

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 Bottle from Belmont Station--Bright effervescent orange-yellow-copper body with a rocky beige head. Big foam around rim of glass. Grainy and bready with a nice hoppiness. Taste was a little disappointing as well as nose considering nose and appearance. Sweet and slightly bitter. Good beer, but nothing to rave about.

BeerandBlues2 (9704) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Pours sparkling orange with a large, rocky, off-white lasting head, excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, straw, cereal), average hops (herbs, grass), heavy yeast (horse blanket, earth) with notes of apple and dust. Light bodied, mineral texture, lively carbonation and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and heavy bitterness, with a mineral aftertaste.

TheEpeeist (3358) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2007
25.4 oz bottle. Pour is almost all whipped marshmallow. Settling reveals pale yellow. Head becomes massively cratered with complete lacing and sticky chunks. Ends up like shave cream. Wheaty hops, lemon juice and damp hay. Light pith bittering with creamy, citric carb. Soft lingering orange peel dries out and mellows. Earthy and unique with an insane Belgian twist. Head has life of its own. Glad to have found this after losing my only bitter rating.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2007
From the bottle this pours a bubbly yellow/straw body with a monstrous rocky head that takes some time to settle dowm, leaving gobs of heavy lacing on the glass. Underneath the scents of floral and grassy hops there’s a light aroma of fresh white bread. Some citric tang is added to the flavor, but the hoppy bitterness persists throughout. Nice mildly bitter finish. Good session ale here.

Sammy (8663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2007
A Stand-Out Belgian Pale, one of the finds of my obscure pale hunt. Mildly yeasty, with a good fomay head. Nice mouthfeel, medium lus mouthfeel, expirey 2008. Quite hoppy,good bitterness and a remarkable overall taste effort for 4.5% a.b.v. I would drink this regular and convert many people if this was available regularly.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2007
Bottled. A hazy light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is acidic citrusy with continental eurpean hop notes. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of wheat and citrus, leading to a dry wheaty and citrusy end - reminds me of a Wit - very refreshing. The body is a bit thin
