ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2003
dark golden with huge bubbly head. Yeast, sourness and alcohol in aroma. Note very pleasant flavour; yeast, (very) sour red fruits and alcohol. Warming finish. Not very complex.

badgerben (4534) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Dark color, insane head. A little spicy, maybe some malt. The alcohol gets in the way, too much of a straight alcohol taste. Still good though.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 29, 2003
a bitter pear aroma. Huge head which was exactly like Duvel. Taste was Duvel-ish, a little more hints of spices, not as well balanced, lacking the same complexity as Duvel, cloudy yellow. It´s far from being bad, but doesnt live up to it´s , expectations

mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2003
Nice aroma, looks good, but the taste does not quite live up to the promises. Not very wellbalanced, too much alcohol..

rauchbier (3639) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Hazy gold, moderate thin but lasting head and fairly low condition. Appealing honey aromas mixed with grain and perfume. Soft and smooth perfumy body with hints of yeast and sweet grain. Nice yeast finish that has hints of dryness

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2003
I agree with the comment about a poor man's Duvel. This is a strange brew as it starts out like a European lager, similar to those with a grassy herbaceous nose. The taste isn't too bad with a citrus yet phenolic finish. There is a slight tartness in taste and lack of balance in bitterness and malt. A too strong ale.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2003
Bottled. Golden yellow with a nice Belgian style head, sweet flavour with good strong body. Not as complex as some Belgian ales but not suffering from extremes as so many other beers do. Balanced.
