maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2009
After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick dark blond color and a hoppy bitter taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a citrus touch. This beer smells spicy.

Defreni (2612) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2009
Flaske: Kæmpestort skum på gul let orange øl. Ikke megen karbonering. Kraftig krydret duft med en del gær, klassisk belgisk. Smagen er også meget krydret med en del bitterhed der klart giver øllen et løft væk fra at være for sød og krydret. Udmærket øl men bestemt ikke en favorit.

Bottled from the beeshop in Stein towncenter. Color is orange like with huge white head. Spices and yeast in nose. nice lacing. Aroma has fruits, spices and hops. Alcohol comes through very much. this and the fresh carbonation dominates the aftertaste.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle. The aroma is very sweet, strong smell of fresh bread and malt, also some spices. The head is medium large, white and foamy with a long duration. The body is clear and red. The first taste is sweet, then it gets bitter, strong taste of hops. The finish is long and strong. The body is medium strong, creamy and dry with a lively carbonation.

fiulijn (14777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
At Beer Mania, Bruxelles
Hazy deep blond color, big head. The aroma has dry malt, some hop and spice, perfumy. Dryish mouthfeel, spicy malt flavor, good bitterness even if it doesn’t go too far from the Belgian tradition. In the final it seems that there is some more body, with also a very light touch of sweet liquorice. Pleasant.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 1, 2009
La mia impressione su questo prodotto non può che essere negativa, ma voglio sperare ciò derivi da una partita di bottigliette guaste, anche se da un produttore grosso come Lefebvre uno non se lo aspetterebbe, ma d’altro canto è anche estate inoltrata chissà che hanno passato.. versa con una gran schiuma, l’aroma è fin da subito spiacevole, puzzo di solvente; il sapore è inizialmente un gran morso di alcool che ha del chimico, che prestissimo svanisce in una nota di amaro pesantissima, sbilanciata in una maniera folle a causa della mancanza di qualcosa prima; siccome anche la bottiglia di Chouffe Houblon che abbiamo stappato aveva qualche problemino, ritengo che abbiano passato più o meno la stessa sorte, ergo: d’estate niente belga da Fusari!

Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2009
Presentation is everything with this beer, and it adds up to a whole. The yeast residue is served on the side, and good tip I must say, be drank in advance of the beer. You get a fairly good impression of and get used to the bitterness. Than, an easy enjoyment. Hops and malts palate unfolds. No pity sip left. Enjoyed completely, and completely enjoyed.

TBone (12567) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2009
Bottled, flip-top (Bs, BB 03/2011). Clear orange-golden color, big cloudy off-white head. I don’t have any hops in the nose, but glueish fruityness and some spices. Crisp carbonation. Triple-like spiceyness, apricot, citrus and alcohol. A bit sour too. In the middle of the pack.
