DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2006
How do the Belgians do it?? One of the best conditioned beers I’ve ever sampled from a can (sinister, witch’s hat-black, 500cl). Silky smooth, lagery gold body topped with perfectly circular, mould-like clumps of lace. Head still there a good hour after the pour (the beer’s). Intensely sweet, peachy-pineapple fruity nose with a hint of woody dryness. The taste is more of the same- smooth, syrupy fruit and a surprisingly delicate spiciness (clove, coriander). Barely a trace of booze or hops. But I’m not complaining. A little sticky by the half-litre, but a pleasantly fruity Belgian ale.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2006
Bottle (330ml). Shared with biegaman, his bottle. Poured clear light gold with a small white diminishing head. Aroma of booze, funky herbal hops, light sweet candyish malt and some yeast - a little rough, but not bad. Taste - apple, yeast, sweet malt, alcohol and light herbal hop bitterness - decent. Weak body, slick, sticky and fairly flat, boozy finish - a tad disappointing, really.

leaparsons (8784) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2006
Bottle. Golden with a medium sized foam. Aromas are sweet candy and yeast with spiced oranges. Flavours are toast with burnt sugar, lemon and yeast. Hints of tea with apricot. Quite dry on the finish. Medium bitterness. Not bad.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Bottle at II Prinsen bar in A’dam. This is a very strong, sweet-tasting dark ale. Very much enjoyed this. Good combination of an ale and a blonde, nice finish.

dj (535) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2006 Bottle. A yellow coloured pour with a small lasting head. A fruity, yeasty aroma. A spicy, alcoholic, hoppy taste with hints of banana and caramel/toffee. A nice hoppy bitter finish. Nice.

FrankJohansen (3608) - Sabro, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2006
Bottle. Dark golden colour with a small off white head. Aroma of hops and spices. Not a beer that you want to retaste with so many other better belgian beers around.

thebeertourist (5077) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle at De Berenbak, Antwerpen. Hazy, deep golden with a huge white head leaving nice lacework. Sweet malts aroma suppressed by spicy hops. Initial sweet flavours, nicely matched by good hoppiness with notes of oranges. Medium body and good carbonation. A great "hoogblond" beer.
