Ungstrup (29134) - 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 (4594) - 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.

cAPSLOCK (155) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2004
Sour. More sour than I like. But beyond that overwhelming first impression lies a good beer. There is a spiciness along with the fruit. And it grew on me as I drank more. Even the aroma is sour before anything else. Could be a bad bottle? Not sure.

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - APR 23, 2004
Very well crafted. Fruity, slightly acidic, nicely bittered. What's the right word for an above average, but not mind blowing beer?

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow with a frothy white head. Pleasant aroma of cirtus and spice and a touch of honey. Flavor was also good. Sweet, malty, hint of orange. A Belgian ale I liked.

DYCSoccer17 (3301) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Aroma is fruity, sour, and spicy. More of a grapefruit fruity smell. Complex. Pours hazy blonde with a robust frothy white head. True to style. Start is malty and yeastly. Finishes very acidic and sour. I dont know, I just dont care for the finish very much. A different taste for me.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2004
Cloudy golden colour with a layer of thin white lace. Aroma of citrus and candi sugar are apparent. Some spiciness as well that reminds of Troublette. Flavour is well balanced, plenty of lemon, bubble gum, and black pepper with a fair amount of residual sweetness. Some floral tastes are obvious here as well. Finishes long and spicy with just a bit of alcohol slipping in. Quite nice but sweetness is a bit too much.
