TheBeerGod (5592) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Slightly hazy blond. Almost no existent head. Nose full of malt, yeast and alcohol notes. Tongue takes those and adds citrus and floral notes to it. Warming, smooth finish. Good beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2003
Aroma is pears and yeast, hazy golden amber, with a small firm white head, and constant bubbles! Some pleasant lace. Strong inoffensive alcohol taste, with some caraway rye highlights, and light fruit. Pleasant mouthfeel, medium bodied, tongue tingle as expected with the style. Good.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2004
Golden colour, big white head with a lot of small bubbles. Nice nose: acidic fruits, spices, and alcohol. Flavour is quite strong and sweet with an alcoholic bitter finish. Certainly not a prime example of the style, but still not too bad. My bottle was 9% ABV.

blankboy (6632) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- my bottle courtesy of Presario. Pours a hazy gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon and other fruit, some spices and alcohol -- somewhat unique smelling. Flavour follows the aroma but is a bit boozy. Medium bodied. It didn’t do much for me but it’s an O.K. Belgian.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2006
Clear yellow coloured, with some yeasty flakes in it. Heavy carbonation and a huge white head. Yeasty herby aroma, little alcoholic nose. Full bitter carbonated body. Finish is bitter, little burning alcoholic, ending more dry. Strong yeasty beer.

DSG (8557) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle. Deep clear golden color with a huge white head. Pleasant aroma of slightly spicy yeast, some fruitiness and some spicy hops. Flavor starts sweet with malt, fruits, and light honey hints and continues drier and spicy with some hops and alcohol in the finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad. would have been nice if it was just a tad drier, but still not bad.

Nice taste but not something special.
