5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2004
Bottle pours an effervescent yellow, large frothy white head, with tremendous amounts of carbonation.   As I released the cage the cork literally blew off the bottle.   Quite spicy on the nose.   Hints of yeast and flora as well.   Forwardly spicy, light in body, with a spritzy mouthfeel.   Finishes with a yeasty, somewhat musty flavor along with the spices.   Good head retention, attractive lacing, but the carbonation was a bit too *burp* lively.   Still pretty darn good tho!

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy orange color with a huge off-white head. Has an aroma of yeast, florals, and spices. Light and refreshing palate. Flavors of banana, yeast, and spices.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Undated 11.12 oz bottle. Pours a bright orange-red color, quite darker than I expected. Good amount of haziness. Small white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, light malting, and some delicate, perfumy hops. Lightly spicy. Flavor is just about as archetypically belgian ale as I can think of. Perfect delicate balance, yeast used to create a good, complex flavor, but dosent get out of control. Medium body, light bready, caramelly malting. Wonderful.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Cloudy light orange color with gigantic head. Poured this into a Tripel Karmeliet glass and boy an I glad I did. Aroma of pepper, yeast amd malt make my mouth water wanting to try this beauty. Nice spicy bite with a mellow peppery spiciness melded together to produce a malty Bgegium goodness. Very well done on their part. I love the subtle intertwining of malt and hops in this. WAY above average. A bit of a thin mouthfeel and a high carbonation make this just below outstanding. Love the way the citrus cuts into the malt. Can you tell I’m lovin’ it?

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Cloudy light orange to yellow body with a fine particled creamy white head. Glass lacing is excellent. Mellow fruity aroma, pears mainly. Straight forward dry pear and yeast flavors. Alcohol is very well hidden, this beer is 8%! Medium body. Quite drinkable. Nothing really stands out but this is a well put together beer.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2004
A dark yellow beer with a dense white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of yeast - just like a Belgian blonde should be. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of yeast and a slightly dry hoppy end. An OK beer - but nothing special.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Way too salty a beer for me. Looked great first sip wasn’t bad. Finished like drinking salt water. If I wanted salt water I’d jump in the ocean not in my beer. Disappointed.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 Caution - cork becomes a deadly weapon... Bottle pours a pale yellow with a big white head and some lace. The aroma is quite yeasty and fruity. The flavor is sweet, yeasty, refreshing, with a good cleansing palate. Overall, not a bad effort.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2004
Slightly cloudy orange tinted yellow. Decent carbonation and lasting filmy head. Aroma of candy apples and melon. A very good example of a Belgian Ale but to me no distinguishing marks. Zesty and refreshing but a little high in alcohol to be getting to aquainted with.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2004
Spices, apple, fruity aroma. Pours an pale yellow, cloudy, thin head. Fairly bland and generic Belgian ale. Alcohol is present, finish is dry and slightly refreshing. Nothing there that makes it stand out from other beers in this style.
