UPDATED: OCT 15, 2009 (Draught@Belge, Helsinki) Hazy dark reddish brown with a tanned, firm and fluffy head. Very dried-fruity, complex and pleasant aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet and grainy, but very (dried-) fruity with low bitterness and caramely malt. Medium body, soft carbonation. Pleasant and balanced dubbel, but probably better with yeast from the bottle. (Draught, was 7-5-8-4-15=3.9) Very dark reddish brown color with small, beige head. Slightly sweet, hoppy aroma with rye-pudding. Very malty, rye-pudding flavor. Full-bodied, syrupy palate with very well-balanced carbonation. A very nice, sweet and malty brew.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Dark reddish brown, huge tan head rises well above the top of the glass, great lacing. Aroma is ginger, cinnamon and malt. Medium bodied, well carbonated. An odd combination of caramel malt down the center and sharp zesty edges full of lemon, banana, apricot, then ending with powdered sugar and malt.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2004
New arrival at my local beer store. I enjoyed this a lot more than their quad. Poured with a large off white head. The body was a very dark amber and brown color. The aroma is sweet with bananas, peaches, nutmeg and a touch of bread. The flavors are sweet. This has strawberries, peaches, bread and a bubblegum finish. This has a lively carbonated mouthfeel. The lacing stuck to the side of the glass more than any other beer I have seen. An excellent Belgian.

Hoppy lemon zest ginger aroma. Hazy medium brown appearance. Metallic hoppy sweetish lemon ice tea, flavors then fruity peach and apricot at the finish. Dry fruity aftertaste.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2004
Bottle pours rusty amber, large frothy off-white head, very light carbonation, with sketchy lacing.   Musty, earth, and light spices on the nose.   Perhaps some ginger root.   Candy sweet up front, slightly herbish, with the aformentioned spice.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes quick, clean, with only a trace of herbs, spices, and maybe some caramel .   A very interesting Belgian, and not too bad either.
