OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, - JAN 7, 2006
Couleur ambrée, apparence claire, mousse blanche se résumant à former un cerceau. Arômes de malt, de caramel et d’esthers fruitées style pêche sous une touche d’épices. Saveurs de gomme baloune, de malt et de houblon herbale. Finale métallique et amère présentant aussi une part d’alcool. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne, carbonatation piquante aux fines bulles. Bouteille 33 cl, Délirium Café, Décembre 2005

Hamirubi (170) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2015
25cl. bottle, drank at home. Never had a glass bottle that was filled to the very top of the bottle. This yeasty beer - which I saved more than two years after its shelf life (10/2012) - has some citrus aromas, but they aren’t pronounced at all. The appearance is very vividly, with lots of carbonization. Great peach, orangy color. The white-brown foam is vast at the start and fades away slowly. A promissing start, but besides from an excellent refressing taste - light sweet, light bitter - it has a very abrupt ending. I’m only left behind with some bitter hints in the throat. Nothing spectacular, yet it still makes for a good drink.

EddyBeer1 (1010) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
Ambrée claire, effervescence moyenne mais trop pétillante, col beige crémeux et aéré. Principalement maltée, caramel, légèrement fruitée, métallique, aqueuse, un peu sèche. Bof...

Alengrin (2884) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Specialty beer taken over by Strubbe in 1992 from a micro brewery which ceased activities meanwhile, if I am correctly informed. Golden blonde, thirst-quenching, sweetish, fruity beer with aniseed, which is applied in a subtle way and therefore - fortunately - not dominant. Good session beer, but rather thin in body and character.

Ik vond dit bier iets te flauw, zeer weinig smaak aan. Dan zijn er veel betere op de markt

JulienHuxley (3887) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from Willems. Amber pour with thin dissappearing white head. Light malty caramel aroma, leafy hop, dull belgian malt. Taste is sweet, light leafy hops, caramel, light spicy finish. Sooo boring. This is about as exciting as a bowl of peppermints.

GSAP (546) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Smaak licht zuur, metaal met ook wat lichte bijna waterige suikers van appel. Aroma is ook wat metalig en kiwi. Proestende kraag op oranje.

Douberd (2968) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle 250 ml at home, poured into a tulip. ABV 6.5% Pours an amber coloured beer, very clear, with two fingers of off-white head sitting on top. Very good retention. Very fruity aroma, caramel, fresh peaches, light apricot, yeast, some wine notes. Taste of caramel, spices, iron, surely less complex than the aroma. Medium thon body, average carbonation, quite dry palate. Overall okay, it would be much better if all the aromas could find their way on the taste too.
