Cloudy amber w/ fluffy white head. Yeasty, spicy aroma of banana, peach, & orange. Soft, creamy feel. Yeasty, fruity & very spicy flavour of banana, peach, orange, orange peel, & coriander. Warm, peppery finish. Moderately complex beer.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 23, 2004
bottled madrid, spain: golden haze with large off white head. a little mountain top rockiness. kindred spirits and jackolantern eyes. reminded me of a tripel with too much alcohol burn at the end. ease off the devil and let this one go. you could end up chaising the dragon yourself if your not careful.

presario (4813) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
Bottle. Hand delivered from overseas. Very cloudy dark yellow. Big head takes a while to settle. Spicy and zesty aroma, nice not overpowering. Foamy in the mouth. Peppery edge to the flavour throughout. Slow alcohol finish. Some citrus flavours and spices popup throughout the drink.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2004
Mid gold, cloudy, with a distinct suspended sediment. tigh white head. musty, sweaty aroma with a malty base. Bitter, dry taste which is quite mouth puckering, but still surprisingly full of body. Not really my cup of tea, especially when considered against the remarkable Rodenbach Grand Cru.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2004
Better than Verboden Vrucht, but still not as good as the standard wit. A lot of nasty sludge in the sampled bottle. Very nice aroma, but also very alcoholic.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 Bottle. Golden color, big head, strong spicy aroma and taste, medium body, a great finish that makes you want one more.

TBone (13539) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2004
Hazy orange with mostly vanishing head. Lively carbonation. Wheat, citrus, prune aroma. Citrus flavor with hints of wheat and sweet fruits. Hides ABV quite well. Generally dissapointing after an excellent "normal" Hoegaarden.

Boutip (5024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2004
Bottle: Poured a golden colored beer with a huge thick head with great retention. Aroma is quite spicy with what seems to be some wheat. I was quite surprise by the taste which includes a fair share of spices, some sweet malt and again something similar to wheat. I thought the taste was closer to a tripel then a regular Belgian ale. The alcohol was well hidden which make this beer even more enjoyable. God, I wish American macros would taste like this sometimes.

pivo (2621) - GERMANY - JUN 23, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2004 Amazing brew - like a premium German wheat beer on crack. Huge yeasty and spicy nose, luscious hazy gold color and spongy head. Fat wheat (wit) taste with some vanilla and bananas in the background. Spicy (pepper, cloves) dry finish. Warming effect from the alcohol though it is not in the foreground. Excellent. "Brilliant" says Jon Ramster.
