HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2005 Bottle (330ml) - tulip glass. Poured very dark ruby-brown, huge off-white rocky, fomay head, complex lacing. Nose simliar to the blonde - slightly sour wine, solid sweet toasted malt, clove & spices, fruits and a little hops - some earthy, musty tones. Ashy, bitter, overripe raisin & fruit taste, quite sharp, young wine and somewhat harsh astringent mouthfeel. A little ashtray harsh bitter on the finish, but very nice bigger brewery belgian. Strangely, better in the bottle than on tap (in my experience) - a little tobacco harsh, but a nice change of pace

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2005 Aroma is sweet and malty, very leffe like. Taste is superior to the blonde though has similer notes, richer spicier slightlky dryer finish too, excellent alround, good for a session.

Draught at the Belgian Cafe in Perth. Deep red-brown, clear, small beige head with excellent lace. Sweet bready yeast and some fruit. Palate is sweet initially, roasted malt, coffee notes on the finish. Very nice.

A very decent Abbey Ale, even though it is highly commercialised. The taste has hints of coffee and caramel, with a mineral aftertaste. Good for all seasons.

Dorqui (2081) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 22, 2005
Abundant and dense foam; much supporter and of optimal persistence. Dark brown color, limpid and bubbly. Decided scent, alcoholic and with detached notes of wine and must. Sweetish and agreeable taste. Enough along final and with flowery rumors.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Had this for the first time in Brugges. Disappointed to learn that it’s not available in the US, but still snagged a few bottles. Rich dark brown with slight amber hue and bubbly tan lacing head. Sweet aroma with caramel notes. Smooth palate. Good bruin. Good Leffe.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2005
Brown coloured beer, nice head. Typical nuts-caramel-combination, think Affligem but then much sweeter. Makes it a bit more tastier as a whole. Quite boring, but very ok and really drinkable
