Light orangy copper color with a nice frothy head. Aroma is strong of apples, pears, lightly citrusy and moderately yeasty. Flavor is much the same, lightly sour and with a lighy hoppy bitterness. Sligtly warming but hides the alcohol well.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 30, 2005
Well, for #100 I was planning to have something more special, but I’d exhausted most of the local stock and was a bit too lazy to travel. Poured a murky pale orangey gold colour with a huge rocky head that laced quite well. The aroma was yeasty and fruity sweet, but slightly metallic. That carried through with tasting, and some hoppy bitterness and dry finish as well. It was surprising thin, with a relatively weak aftertaste, possibly due to the dryness. It contains the alcohol quite well, and the kick comes up from the stomach rather than burning down the throat. Good, but there are plenty of better strong ale’s more widely available.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2005
Another strong, dark golden ale. Standard pour in the glass. Light spice and alcohol in the taste with a solid whack of sugary sweetness. Decent, but still short of the top notch Belgians.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2005
[bottle from peckhams] Pours light yellow with a large foamy head. Aroma is yeastywith some coriander, some pine and some herbal notes. the body is light and the finish is a little dry. Similar to duvel but lacks the spicey palate and vibrant body.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2005
Aroma starts sour then changes to a sort of boiled cabbage/vegtable smell. Taste is better with the sourness not overpowering but still there with a little vegtable taste. Disapointing.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2005
Mid gold colour with an excellent, lasting head. Yeast and hops in the aroma and a sweet-spicy citrus taste with a bit of dryness. Plenty of alcohol: another great Belgian beer.

bkurtz (1061) - MOROCCO - AUG 21, 2005
Poured a clear golden with a big head. Malty and almost too sweet. Great big burst on the palate.

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Bottle. Excellent head and decent lacing throughout. Smells of citrus and hops. Taste is spicy very hoppy with an almost lemon bitter aftertaste. Smooth alcohol burn.

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2005
Pale golden, slightly cloudy beer. The head was dense and long lasting and there was great lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma was a bit bready with a lot of citrus fruits/hops. Some sweet malt on the nose also. A bit of spice, some hops and sweet malts. The alcohol was quite well covered. For a Belgian ale, it was very easy drinking. Fairly light body and medium bitterness. Lasting carbonation.

Stew41 (1942) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 5, 2005
Well bugger me, looks for all the world like I just poured a Carlton Draught (gold larger in colour). The big diff of course being the beer holds some very good lacing. Slightly strange nose with some quite pointed sweet candy notes lifting up, reminds me of ’Wizz Fizz’ candy powder. Has some attraction though. More standard issue in the mouth with yeasty, spice notes and good malt body. Finishes a little hard, a tiny bit short and disjointed with some alcohol burn. Not a bad beer but lacks any semblance of value (I have to sell ’em at $7+).
