DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
I gotta say it looks pretty nice, with a huge fluffy head and dark yellow colour. Scent is not much though, just some grassiness and malts. The taste is some kind of cross between rubbing alcohol soaked in grass and caramel. Weird mouthfeel. Rather unappealing.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle: extremely sweet, some metal notes, strong alcohol flavor, plain horrible.

tomer (1620) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - SEP 8, 2009
0.33L bottle, almost no head whatsoever, dark gold colour, just a touch hazy. some candy and earthy yeasty aroma, some unpleasant sweetness a touch of bread and a strong coarse alcohol, the finish is bitter and alcoholic. certainly strong, but nothing belgian about it apart from the fact that it was made there. Feels much more like a malt liquor.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 21, 2009
Bottle. Clear golden color with a small white head that falls immediately. Aroma of alcohol, yeast and fruits. Very sweet strong alcoholic flavor with some fruitiness. A drier alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied and slightly syrupy. Pretty awful.

zvikar (3370) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - AUG 17, 2009
Bronze with no head, smells like toffee, burnt plastic and corn, tastes like alcohol, unpleasant acidity and some malt behind. Dull body, Bad beer.

BoBoChamp (5353) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2009
75cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex brew, too heavy, not balanced, clear, small head, nothing special, needs to be revised

lithilorn (247) - Covilhã, PORTUGAL - JUL 11, 2009
Yellow ambar body, white head. Sweet malt, fruity aroma. Sweet syrupy caramel, fruity flavor. Alcoholic. a medium beer.

DuffMan (6436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2009
Can. Okay, save yourself some money and take an alcohol swab, wrap it in a bandaid, dip it in petrol, add a dollup of corn syrup and then suck on it. Or, if you can’t be bothered "homebrewing" this shit, then go ahead and spend the money if you must. But really, you should take my word that unless you live under a bridge in Belgium, this shit ain’t worth it. Drainpour.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2009
Can in Brussels. Dark body with slight head. Sweet nose and taste. But way too high ABV. Pure malt liquor. Pass.

2.6

bonfunck (149) - Waasmunster, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2009
50cl can. Shared with Bontus. Pours dark golden beer, looks like a lager with small foam. sweet beer with strong alcohol taste like a lager beer that is mixed with vodka
