Abio (1551) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2011
What to expect from a beer with this name... It pours out golden, light orange with a medium head that should hold a bit longer, but sticks ok to the glass. Smell is totally not cookies for me... Really spiced, hoppy smell. Smells like a lot of winterbeers. The taste is sweet, totally outbalanced, and weird. A lot of spices, but to call it "speculoos", I really have to say no. Weird beer, not my style.

Sweet beer! Very sweet beer! Light palate. Some floral notes and a subtle but pervading ginger. Well joined up - a grower!

Allara (148) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2011
33cl bottle from Beer Planet in Brussels. TONS of carbonation, and lots of yeast particulate visible. Sweet notes in the aroma and palate. Nice tan color with notes of sweet spice. Really tasted like a sugar cookie. Different beer and enjoyable. However, you really wouldn’t want to drink more than one.

mcberko (6052) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a monstrous white head. Aroma of cookie, yeast, and various christmas spices (nutmeg, cinnamon). The cookies flavour stands out the most in flavour, with the spices (especially cinnamon) toning it toward the end and on the finish. Decent attempt here.

marcot (771) - Campomorone, ITALY - JUL 28, 2010
Premesso che sono sbronzo. Bevuta al big ben di Sampierdarena dal bicchiere di Corkscrew, siam venuti qua perchè doveva esserci la blonde hop e non c’era... ma va bè. Questa birra è terribilmente insaporita alla cannella e ai biscotti allo zenzero. al primo sorso è buona al secondo ha già stufato. ebbasta non è mica natale

bhensonb (10816) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle at Cambrinus in Bruges. Pours dark gold with a white head. Smells like gingerbread. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It is heavily ginger. There’s a hint of chocolate. Yum

chrisv10 (10834) - DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
33 cl bottle. Not sure if I got a bad version of this but it was close to undrinkable. Hazy yellow body with white head. Flavour is malt and cleaning detergents.

Borresteijn (4574) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2009
Bottled at 3rd Brugs BF. Hazy golden yellow, white head. Aroma of speculoos and typical Belgian blond ale notes with some coriander. Flavour is sweet, speculoos, light fruity, bit malty. Soft mouthfeel. Nice for a few sips, then becomes cloying.

CapFlu (4484) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
(Bottle) Sampled at GCBF 2009 in Victoria on September 9, 2009. Grossly overpowered with cloves and ginger. I was expecting cookie dough but this was much more a ginger cookie. 7/3/4/2/11
