Rating from memory, as I have tasted this in 2007 and I am not sure this is still brewed (after all, the "Fanfare Sint-Vincentius" has been in existence for 106 years now, so if Herberg still produces this, I guess they would have to change the name every year...). Thin but stable, off-white head, colour a deep brownish amber with quite conspicuous and not very attractive protein veils in the end; aroma weak, some orange, peach, toast, white pepper; taste begins with a soft fruitiness, rounded on a caramel-malt basis, typically ’Belgian’, spicy yeast notes, end rather disappointing due to the lack of hop bitterness to balance the yeastiness.

Plutôt orange qu’ambrée, voilée, effervescence moyenne à bulles fines, col blanc fin. Les légers malts caramel se laissent rapidement dépasser par une moyenne amertume houblonnée quelque peu herbacée. Manquant de subtilité, une Herberg mineure comparée aux autres...

77ships (3586) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 5, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. From Willems. Label seems to suggest a very, very small brewery at work here even by Belgian standards. Going by their website, it seems like this is actually the work of a brewpub (a big rarity in Belgium, I know only of 3 exiting brewpubs in Belgium at this moment including this one). Pours a murky peach orange with a small white head. Smells of soured dough, overripe banana, BE yeast, sweet and exotic fruits, clear signs of hop. Taste is sour green banana, lots of it, sour dough yeast, BE yeast, old orange peel, fermenting soft peaches, bitter grass in the back, multi-fruit juice and some of candy sugar, some bitter yeast in the back. Sparkling, odd fizzy carb, yeasty. Shows potential but it does seem like this has some issues.

PriorL (1643) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 33cl bottle. APPEARANCE: amber beer, small rather stable off white head. NOSE: bitterness, hops, quite a lot of sugar, malts. TASTE: lots of caramel, a very strange taste, reminds me a little of baked meat... some spices there too, but in total, not that good a beer... Thx Mathieu87 for these!

suprchunk (2088) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Amber colored pour. Small white head with a bit of lacing. Aroma of corn. Taste is a sweet roasted corn. Not the best thing to cross my lips.

1/VI/2012 - 33cl bottle @ De Heeren van Liedekercke (Denderleeuw) - BB: XII/11 (2012-565)

Little cloudy amber to red brown beer, big creamy light beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: spicy, grassy hops, touch of citrus, but dusty, overripe fruits, some paint. MF: good carbon, medium body, bit creamy texture. Taste: bit of caramel, malts, some milk chocolate, little sour, fruity. Aftertaste: bitter hops domination over a subtle spiciness, bit chemical, touch of banana and overripe fruit maybe due to the age.
