I enjoyed this on tap in Philly two weeks ago, was surprised to see it since I have never encountered it in bottle before. Was a wonderful representation of a Belgian brown. Nothing over the top, very drinkable. Just the right level of toffee/malt sweetness.

Brown with a nice white head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt and yeast. A bit sweet. A nice beer for a macrobrewery...

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2004
Bottled. Typical Belgian aroma but also notes of banana. the colour is very dark brown with a reasonably long-lasting white head. The taste is well balanced with candy sugar and licquorice/aniseed notes. The finish is shorter than I would have liked for this type of beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2004
Bottled, in Cyprus.
Brown with a medium white head. Rich dark malt aroma, sour aniseed notes as well. Malt flavour with a sharp bitter structure that disappointingly falls away at the finish, instead of building stronger like a bitter. Slight abbey sweetness in the finish.

Very nice dark color, while retaining some of the spices of the Blonde variety. Very busy flavor has a bit of citrus to it, an overall very smooth beer!

TBone (12815) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 11, 2004
Bottled (BB 04/2005)
Dark brown color. Creamy off-white head, lace. Aroma is medium-stregth malts, prunes and raisins. Carbonated, sweet, very drinkable palate: raisins and citron are in the flavor. One of the easiest main label abbeys I think. Short finish. This one hides all alcohol very well.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2004
Bottle sample- Pours a dark brown body with a caramel coloured head that lasts. Aroma is sweet, fruity and of slight alcohol. Taste is sweet and sugary, and quickly turns to a bitterness that feels nice in the throat. Hops are way more apparent in the finish.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Nutty aroma with hints of honey. I can smell the alcohol a little, too. Looks a lot like a semi flat soda with a thick foamy tan head. Sweet maple and brown sugar taste. A lot thinner than it looks, though. Not bad.

BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2004
330ml brown bottle.Hoegaarden tumbler.Malt,caramelised sugar nose like home made toffee.Foamy creamy brown head with some lacing.You can drink it in work cos everyone reckons its Coke. Nice light sweetness complex flavours but disappointing watery mouthfeel. Light alcohol finish. Easy to drink considering the 6.5 w/w. I prefer Leffe Blond.
