UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 2010-08-04, bottle from Salling in Århus, vintage 2009, 1 year old, 5-4-5-2-9=25
Hazy light amber color; thin head. The aroma is lighly acidic. The body is not very strong, and there is an evident sourness. This bottle is spoiled.

2008-04-30, bottle vintage 2007, 7-4-7-3-14=35
Hazy amber color with red shades. The aroma is a bit soapy. Soft mouthfeel, medium body, but the flavor is not impressive. Overall, not as good as the draught one.

2007-09-29, draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Nice aroma, malty, spicy and yeasty, Belgian style. Good mouthfeel, round; malty flavor, with a sweet spicy character (described as mellow tartness by the brewery); good bitterness. Mature brew, excellent Belgian example.

A little thin for me, and from what I’ve had so far, a little thin as Belgians go. The prominent note is lemon, which is one of my red flags. The finish is a lot like the start - yeasty, lemony - which is another. I had in on tap at Clybourn.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 bottle ’06 - Pours hazy gold with a huge head. This one took awhile to pour. The aroma is of sweet malt and some citrus. The flavor is very sweet with light citrus notes, and a touch of spice and alcohol. It’s pretty good, but I don’t think they’ve quite nailed the style. edit: Enjoyed on draft this year. It’s better that way. Bumping up my rating just a little...

prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2007
This was good. From the tap at The Nomad in Milwaukee. Served in a tulip. Looks like ruby red grapefruit juice, has a delightful yeasty aroma with spices and citrus notes. Tastes like orange-grapefruit-cider, which sounds bad but is actually quite pleasant. Not overly spicy like many Belgian knockoffs, so it was nice not to have overwhelming wheat or coriander in there too.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Tap @ GI Clybourn – Dark hazed gold with soft aromas of spicy fruity hops and hints of bread. Balanced yeasty spiced fruit flavors end with a light hop kick. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry, lightly bittersweet finish. Nicely done…

Ringollo (4) - USA - NOV 11, 2007 does not count
Descriptors: golden amber appearance with a little froth; crisp, fruity, yeast flavor with a dry finish. Has a pleasant acidic "bite" which I find to be the most notable characteristic of the beer.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2007
12 oz. 2006 bottle , from my brother. Hazy amber with a big, billowing yellow/tan head that collapsed over several minutes. Aroma of yeast, earth, lemon, light stone fruits, and spice. Body is light to medium, complemented by lively effervescence, and a mildly acidic, clean palate. There is some sourness in the flavor that counters a honey like sweetness, and at the finish a spicy bitterness comes on strong. Very drinkable and thirst quenching.
