Ernest (6218) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Bottle (brewery labeled as Grand-Enclos, Sensenruth), Brussels, May 2005. Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, toasted bread), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of peach, coriander, and orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Amber-coloured nephew of the Godefroy Blonde, with cream white foam and deep, almost bronze-like amber colour. Sweet caramel malts in the nose, nutty, red berries, pear; taste fruity, nutty malts, medium sweet, simple with thin mouthfeel and insufficient hop bitterness. Boring but not as boring as its blonde counterpart.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 8, 2014
Amber bodied with a frothy instable nice head. Simple Belgian caramel and doughy malts, strong carbonation in the nose. Dry taste, Belgian yeast, yeasty and classic hops. Nice taste, Belgian but developed and not too sweet. Simple yet not boting and much better than a lot of the Belgian brews around now. Still too classic and not very imaginative, yet I don’t mind drinking it. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus SPdC)

Metallic and some malts aroma. Head lasts a while. Metallic flavour. Not much beer flavour.

Benzai (8224) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle @ home. Clear orange to lightly reddish color, full sized beige head. Smell and taste malts, some sharp fruityness, lightly yeast and a touch of bitter. Average body, medium carbonation.

tderoeck (4684) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 30/IV/13 - 33cl bottle from Van Uxeem (Ploegsteert) @ home - BB: 10/IV/14 (2013-440) Thanks to Erwin for fetching me the beer!

Clear orange beer, nice creamy off-white head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, lots of orange peel, sugary, some coriander, spices, bit dusty. MF: a bit too much carbon, medium body. Taste: citric start, maybe to carbon?, malts, bit sweet, curaçao, spices, bit peppery. Aftertaste: bitter and hoppy touch, spices, some orange beep, malts, grains, bit soapy. Correct beer, but nothing exciting about it.

psilosophy (491) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur rousse, très légèrement trouble, mousse abondante de tenue moyenne. C’est vraiment très faible aromatiquement, une petite pointe de houblon et un goût quelque peu métallique. Une bière insipide tout à fait oubliable. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert. edit du 14/08/12 : Après une nouvelle dégustation, elle ne s’avère pas si mauvaise même si il n y a toujours rien de transcendental

Bottled at a Restaurant in Paliseul, Belgium.Clear reddish brown, large rocky beige head. Roasted and caramelly malt aroma with coffee and burnt sugar. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Quite sweet, low bitterness. More Baltic Porter than Brune.

Azzo ma è buona questa!! ma chi l’avrebbe mai detto, pensavo fosse il solito pasticcio industriale dolce, invece bel carattere, molto presente il lievito che ha sfumature westmalle, benebene una birretta leggiadra ma mica male bravi eheheor
