bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2004
Golden straw colour with a large white lasting head. Nice full aroma of citrus. The taste is also citrus with maybe some cloves and a little zesty. Medium body and easy to drink.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
LaGauloise, or in french slang "the Broad" I would assume refers to the picture of the broad shouldered, viking helmet wearing, pig tailed, blue eyed, bathycolpian, young lady depicted on the label. The picture is stunning enough that I purchased the beer mostly based on the label and the beer seems to live up to the quality of the art. Designated as a "Blonde" style by a neck label, the beer in the bottle indeed was a nice golden blonde color. The bottle conditioning left a nice effervecent effect as the beer was poured into a fluted goblet. Some nice fruity esters in the aroma are balanced with a full bodied crisp malt flavor. The malty sweetness desipated nicely to leave a crisp dry finish. At 6.3% ABV I could easily see myself drinking about three of these in one sitting.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - APR 5, 2004
Hazy yellow body, disappearing head. Hay, coriander and yeast aroma - very spicy and really too heavy. Flavor is citrus, yeast, hay and spices with a thin finish. A too harsh and not very complex beer.

leaparsons (7801) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2004
Golden with a massive white head that is gone in a flash. Aromas are spicy caramel and yeast. Flavours are floral hops with lots of spice at the back of the mouth. Quite easy going with a nice filling foam mouthfeel.

diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2004
Cloudy golden colour. Frothy white, mostly diminishing head, good lacing. Citrus and pine in the aroma, which is a little bit alcoholic too. Soft, lightly sweet and lightly bitter initial flavour. A long - but very weak lightly bitter finish.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2003
Perfect summer ale: strong, soft and still refreshing. Easy to enjoy anytime. Love the bottle!

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2003
Hazy golden color; niceperlage; creamy head, persistent. A Tripel character: light, dry aroma, hop; dry front taste, a bit sweeter later; just somehow metallic. A light anis note. More important than its strength may suggest.

jutuahol (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2003
Cloudy, sparkling, thick light head, some lace. Fruity nose. Fruity, sour and a bit dry. Moderate bitter. Pretty long, bitter and dry finish.
