3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
hmmmm... I liked the Bruin version a lot more... Aroma is not too good, maty sweetish with fruits (apple and grapes). The apple smell is much of alcohol... Strange appearance. Orange-brown coloured with a perfect lacing. Big corn-flakes in my beer! Taste is much better than smell luckily. Mostly malt and fruit (apples, oranges). Some hops and quite dusty. Taste is really much better than aroma.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium orange body, no head at all - somewhat murky. Definetely the strong spices often found in Belgian’s are found in the aroma. Very chewy, and thick - interesting! - barely carbonated, and slightly sweet. I detect some pears somewhere in there. Cask-like, with its slightly sour and yeasty finish. Hops make a small appearance, and then some bitterness/astringency. I don’t think its that bad really, but as notalush points out, it is too expensive at our local beer store.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy golden color, minimal carbonation - aroma of straw, citrus, spice and mustiness - flavor is an odd mixture of hops, lemon zest, grain, apples and grapes - the flavors don’t really seem to work together as well as they could, and the dominant hops in the finish amplify this - not bad, but certainly not worth the five dollars I paid for my 10 ounce bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark hazy golden with a large firm head. Big aroma of hay, sweetened oranges and alcohol. Hoppy orangey flavour with a yeast note. Quite interesting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pours dark straw, very cloudy with lots of yeast floating about, large rocky white head, spotty lacing, with good amounts of carbonation.   Spices on the nose, corriander and lemon zest maybe.   Minor whisps of alcohol is detectable.   First things noticed is a very earthy/musty flavor, followed by a medicinal bitterness that lasts through to the finish.   Slight cardboard is emerging as this thing warms.   Feels somewhat salty too.   Mouthfeel and body are average, but it seems really out of whack.   Donkey urine?

Aroma of malts with some spices. Hazy, orange color, almost no head, no lace. Sweet, bitter, malts, spices, totally flat, thick. Did I have a bad bottle? I should re-rate some time.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Towards the darker end of what I would consider a blonde with a tan head which stood firm a full 2" above the glass. Poured cloudy (I disturbed the yeast accidentally). Aroma was subdued and musty, flavor was light and spicy.
