Sweet cookie dough aroma with notes of lemon. Yeasty. Clear golden, slightly hazy body with fizzy, sparkling white head that recedes to thin cover. Simple straight-forward lemon cookie-dough flavour with light spiciness in the finish. Soft mouth and gently prickling carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and a gang of bierophoux.

Fully diminishing head, mostly clear golden. From the aroma, it smells full bodied, malty. Very yeasty, a touch of alcohol. Peppercorn like yeast, quite dominating, lots of coriander too. While the taste is not very complex, I enjoyed the lactic/malt/spice(coriander) and citrusy balance. Well-made belgian ale. Lightly biting carbonation. Medium to full body. Pleasant.

Aroma of yeast, citrus and malt, golden amber, pours a large rocky white head, tiny lace. Flavours are yeast, grapefruit, malt backbone and some breadiness. Medium bodied, complex, pleasant mouthfeel, dry. Fine rendition!

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, 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.

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

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 (909) - 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.

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.
