TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Nice blondish brown with a white head. Spicy floral bouquet dominates the nose. The first sip reveals spice and yeast. Further sips reveals more malt and spice but definitely sweeter tones. Nice sweetly smooth finish.

omhper (18970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy orange with creamy head. Orangey yeasty aroma. Sugary sweet with soft mouthfeel. Malty and mild. Once upon a time this was one of the beer that got me started, and I don't know if it has lost a bit of itäs edge, or if my taste have changed since.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy light orange. Fruit and yeast notes in the aroma, with just a hint of clove. Slightly bitter in the flavour with notes of clove and citrus. Fizzy mouthfeel, warming headfeel...

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
Amber ale with almost no head. Aroma of yeast, fruits ans alcool. Taste of malt and alcool with a bitter finish. Not bad, but not among the best in this category (according to me, of course).

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 10, 2004
Sampled @ Helsinki Beer Festival 2004
Pale yellow and orange in color, murky, small head that vanishes quickly. Dry, fruity and yeasty nose. Smooth palate, medium to full body. Flavor is a bit sour, yeasty and fruity. Dry finish.

Emil (6067) - 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.

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.

madquacker (1019) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2004
Yes very complex and sophisticated but wouldn’t want to have to drink this stuff regularly. I think I’m missing something with these Belgium beers... give me a half decent Czech pilsner any day over this so called beer.
