bleeng (1510) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle as gift from brewery-20043. Light brown, hazy, and still well carbonated. Nose is a bit stale with some hop, spice and light malts evident. Flavors are bit old but not oxidized. Malty, light spicing, and hops still on board. This was hidden in the back of my cellar for years and I just found it. Time to drink it before it’s beyond ancient.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2009
A hazy amber ale with a thin off white head. Aroma of sweet herbal honey, mineral notes, and a bit of carboard (sign of aging). In mouth, a lightly sweet and fruity malt with light orange peels, a bit of licorice, apples, some light hops. Medoium bodied. BB June 06 and still good for its age! Shared with probstk, July 16 2007. Merci à Joris pour ce cadeau (2005).

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2007
33 cl bottle, shared with Lubiere (merci), served almost cold in a goblet. BB June 2006. JL16/07.

App.: Orange-brown, cloudy, minimal off-white head. Aroma: Lots of sweet aromas: honey, brown sugar, molasses and treacle; slightly floral with orange notes; some oxidation. Palate: Medium-full body, soft carbonation. Flav.: Cardboard and petrol (burning candle wax) greet you; some maltiness, a touch of alcohol and very modest bitterness; mineral.

A shame that it is oxidized and past its prime.

Sten (625) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2006
Blonde-orangelike colour with a fast diminishing white head. Sweet aroma. Sweet and slightly bitter taste, well balanced. (Bottle 33cl)

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2005
Bottled (BB 06/2006)
Hazy orange, small head. Lemony, some honey in the nose. Medium-bodied, a bit sweet - honey-like flavors. Some hops and rye-bread added in.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2005
Huge off-white head, dense, leaving lace; hazy ochre-orange beer. Slightly sharpish cookie nose, quite spicey (citrus, peppery, maybe Grains of Paradise). Farmyard odours, not unlike some latter-day Saisons. Spicey taste speculoos (sweet hard gingerbread), again some orangezeste, sourish. I agree with Michael on the balance. Warming up, I get some oxydized notes, portlike, which is strange with a BBD more than another year away. Nothing disturbing, mind. Medium bodied, quite carbonated. OK stronger blonde. Just not sure what the brewer had in mind. Nothing as exciting as the Reuss, or even Bink.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2003
Darkish blond with a small head. Hop, yeast, spice and floral aroma. Cannot pin point the spice, sorry. Slightly sweet taste with a light bitter finish. An excellent and well balanced beer.
