Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Orange Haze. Astringent nose, almost sour, with notes of vanilla, pear, banana, tropical fruits and herbs. Sweet, astringent and fruity with notes of apples, pine, orange and honey. Dry, alcoholic and quite yeasty. Not very good.

FtWorthBrew (105) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Nice frothy head. Tasted of lemon and citrus. lots of gas in this one. suprisingly little alcohol flavor for 8%. Lighter than Nostrodamus on complexity and alcohol flavor. still very good overall.

Liquid caramel. It looks like it’s ready to dip apples. Milk white head. Initial pour went to my wife in a tulip at 45 F. Looks like it’s climbing out the glass, purty. I smell naturally fermented apple cider vinegar. Pine resin. Sweet and sour. Light with carbonation. Uurgghh. I like, but it’s a bit flat tasting. Kinda like a pale ale on a green pine plank. It’d go nicely with a cured salmon, or a salmon grilled on plank with a cream sauce. It’s okay outta the bottle, but I bet it’s mucho better fresh from a pitcher in a pub within the home region. GAB

jde123 (765) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 9, 2004
A bright belgian ale, pours citrusy with a large frothy white head. Body is a hazy pear color. Taste is of honey, lemon, lime, and something else. It is quite good.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Very nice beer. Not as hoppy or tart as I thought it would be. Surprisingly light too for such a high alcohol %. Definitely a drinkable beer that I’d drink again and would recommend.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - AUG 30, 2004
75cl. bottle. aromas of orange, hops, bananas, pears, apricot. hazy yellow with a large creamy head. flavors of orange, apricot, pear and a slight hop flavor slight malty nuttiness. balanced and slightly creamy becoming slightly dry in the finish. a tasty refreshing beer. A fine refreshing Belgian beer that is very refreshing despite the alcohol.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Light lemony/peppery aroma. Squash and piney (pine nut?) notes. Acerbic flavor, but overall quite subdued for the ABV....this is quite a simple brew really. Simple, but not unenjoyable.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2004
bottled porte noire cafe brussels: poured hazy yellow with an off white head. i had just had la caracole ambree and this one was similiar but slightly lighter in color and flavor. however, not in alcohol which i was surprised to find out. this one has some sweet banana spice character and some smashed by the back of a dirty old leather boot slickness to the palate. a notch down from the ambree.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2004
Bottled. Cloudy golden. Old cellar, old cheese in the aroma. Flavour is woody and earthy and brings overripe yellow apples. Rich, dry finish
