imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle conditioned, 300ml at Brasserie Verschueren, Brussels. Clouded gold with white head. Iím sure this said 5.9%. Fruity, apricot, but thinnish ale type bitter. Quite tangy and with a touch of cabbage water, an unusual flavour. Reasonable, but the pub was terrific which boosted it.

FrankJohansen (3604) - Sabro, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2009
Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a medium white head. Rich aroma and taste of fruits, spice and yeast. Good beer.

HogTownHarry (6130) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2009
Bottle ( 330ml ). Courtesy of Glouglouburp. Cloudy orange, huge fluffy white head (bit of a gusher). Sharp dry spicy yeast aroma, background sweetness, somewhat like crushed tomato vines. The taste is quite herbal bitter, the taste reminds me of how my mouth used to get weeding the vegetable garden on a hot, still, sunny August day - mildly alcoholic - tons of dry yeast. Average body, a bit still, very dry and minerally in the finish/linger - it grew on me - not sure about that aroma, but the taste was unique and enjoyable.

BelgiskOlklub (921) - Viby J, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2009
Average size rocky off-white lasting head. Cloudy orange-yellow body. Heavy hop aroma of grass, celery and vegetables. Light yeasty aroma of earth. Medium body, Thin oily texture and a chalky bitter finish. Light/moderate sweet and heavy bitter flavor.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle, best before July 2009. Cloudy amber, with little bits of yeast floating around. Small but dense white head. Fruity, spicy aroma of yeast and hops. Dash of lemon. Faint hint of raw vegetables. Dry flavor dominated by yeast and hops. Citrus and alcohol faintly in the background. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Dryish, yet vaguely oily mouthfeel. Medium body, fresh yet soft carbonation.

mulderbelgie (10) - BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2009
yes yes yes, for me itís actually the best belgian beer, nothingís wrong about it, itís just perfect as a belgian pale-ale, easy to drink cold, and strong when itís a bit hotter. Really great.

Dark hazy yellow appearance. Dry flowery flavor with a thin texture and medium bitter finish.

dec23 (52) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2009
A decent staple Belgian ale. Nice dark yellow colour, good all-around taste with a hint of typically Brussels sourness to it which adds a nice local touch to the brew. The carbonation makes it tickle your tongue nicely and it offers a decent range of fruity and bitter flavours. A good mid-range beer to spend an evening with.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Hazy bright orange-yellow pour. Lots of bubbles with a thick fluffy white head. Strong yeasty aroma with a bit of skunk. Malty taste with a bit of roast. Earthy with some fruit. Very refreshing with a nice hoppy finish.

"THE" best belgian beer actually i think. The Zenne brouwerij is well knowned around here for making REAL caracterfull beers, and that one can be taken as the belgian beer that is missing for too many years. Lightly amber ale, medium body for being drank all night long, pretty nice hop touch, enough bitter and enough sweet... i put a maximum on all ratings because i think itís the best in belguim.
