reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer. I see a lot of people describing a hazy appearance, but mine is very much clear. First time with this beer, so unsure if this is good or bad? Lovely orange colour with moderate white head. Aroma is rich and spicy - a punch to the nose. Tastes of a bag of dried fruit trail mix - raisins, dates, apricots and bananas. Spicy rum finish to please the belly. Pleasantly surprised by this one. A keeper indeed.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange-brown colour. Nose is peppery and shows orangey citrus fruit. Fairly sweet, with some nuts and caramel, with an interesting, almost toasted flavour. Finish, is warming, with some peppery alcohol and some citric bitterness. This was quite nice and well balanced for its strength.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Lovely spices and fruits in the nose. Cloudy orange with a large, lasting white head. Sweet, nutty start with some lovely citric notes. Spices (coriander, clove, etc) in the finish. Quite moreish and refreshing.

TBone (14784) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2006
Bottled (BB 01/2008)
Hazy nut brown color, small creamy tan head. Fruity aroma (apricot). Medium to full bodied. Sweet fruity flavor: kandy sugar and apricot. In the finish some hops and alcohol make the flavor more bitter. I would think this as Dutch-style Belgian ale.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2006
(Bottled) Muddy brown color with a medium, very lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, figs and lots of berries. Very fruity, sweetish berry flavor with quite evident, bitter hopping and a long, spicy, caramel-malty finish. Medium to full-bodied, slightly syrupy palate with hints of alcohol and low carbonation. A very enjoyable, strong and balanced dessert ale with some scotch ale character.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2005
Bottled. Deep hazy amber coloured. Very spicy aroma (mainly coriander) with some fruitiness and yeastiness. Sweet, fruity and spicy flavour with a dry and quite hoppy finish. Smooth and well balanced.

Trappistenbier (52) - BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2005
Halleschelle is a great housebeer from picobrewery Alvinne, located in Ingelmunster. This beer is a command from Dominiek, one of the two owners of beerpub Pado at Tielt. Orange hazy aprearance with a great creamy longlasting head. It has bottle refermentation and in 8.5 vol% strong. Very coriander flavored, and this in "perfect" balance with the citirc hops that are used. Hence the very parfumy aroma.It’s a very dense beer with a muddy texture. it’s definite one of the best housebeers available here in Belgium !!!

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Nice warm-amber color with fine orange glow and with yellow-beige head. Aroma is very spicy (corriander), flowers, Armagnac, nutmegg and sharp chutny. The taste is malty and has some barley-wine caracteristics. Also touch of Cognac, sweet spices, caramel, oxidized apple and a woody bitter accent. In the afthertaste a bit alcohol with some caramel-malts and a faint soury touch to end with. Re-taste at the Pado this time in optimal condition

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2005 Very foxy-amber highlights in golden-orange beer; very dense, yellowish head. Coriander leaps out of the glass, bit of dishwater - that IS the glass -, very much amber and cookie malts, orange zeste. Sweet, bitter, little sourish taste - perfect balance. Coriander is there, but it does NOT dominate. Beer gets more fruity with time and warming up. Well bodied, slick and oily MF. I’m impressed by its balance. Equally by the fact that Alvinne is now really brewing.
