UPDATED: JUN 24, 2005 Hazy amber/orange with a world class head that was huge and lasted forever. Aroma from burnt sugar, syrup and hazel nuts with creamy notes. Flavor brings fruit at first, with hazel nuts, malt and cream. I liked this a lot , a nice surprise.

Murky, opaque dark brown (touch of ruby) colour with a foamy tan head. Interesting aroma, sweet, stewed fruits, butterscotch, sweet malts. Nice flavour, dark fruits, syrup, malty, with a long sweet finish. Quite highly carbonated, smooth and delicious.

footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 23, 2004
Bottled 750 ml. Cloudy whiskey colored. Quickly dissipating tan head. Black cherry smell mixed with yeast. An Initial tangy lemony taste with malty ending. Medium bodied. Very unique and odd beer. A mix between a Flemish sour and a German bok. unique!

Bottled, at de Garre, Brugge.
Deep bright amber colour, full foam off-white head. Served in the wildest glass Iíve ever seen. Funky, crazing and exciting. Glass control is of the essence with this beer so I recommend you drink early rather than latter in your session. Motley hop aroma. Complex but elusive flavours. I real adventure drunk in authentic surrounds.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 From a 750ml bottle. Light tan head with a creamy thickness. The body is a very dark and cloudy brown with a little bit of red at the bottom of my Chimay chalice. The aroma is fruity with apples and peaches. The taste is also light and fruity. For some reason I think of peach yogurt in both consistency and taste. The taste also has some pepper spice with some strawberry notes. The mouthfeel is both creamy and greasy. An very strange brew that surprised me with the fruit.

One of the best bok beers I have had. Beautiful glass in holder, not too sweet but definitely not too bitter.

The most impressive about this beer is the head : it is thick, long-lasting and light brown. The body has a murky brown colour, not very clear. As for the taste, it is mostly malty-bitter, even though I could detect some - very remote - sweetness. I couldnít feel any special aftertaste. A bit of a disappointment really.

Hazy, murky dark garnet color, an immense and flourishing tan head. Lovely and lively aroma: sweet, notes of butterscotch, fruit, copper, sea-foam, flowers, cocoa..it sounds like an odd mix, I know, but itís there and it works! As for taste...surprisingly smooth, very tasty, a great big load of thick maltiness that meets the tongue with remarkable ease. Sharp hops at first on the palate, but with a lasting sweetness in the finish. In this case, we have a great example of what makes Belgian beer so special. Itís so far above and beyond any average bock, with a certain effervescence, weíll call it, that lifts this one up, in flavor, character, body, texture...it feels light, but solid. Thatís my story, and Iím sticking to it! Also cool is itís own special glass, a cute little guy without stem or foot, that has to be balanced in itís own stand, similar to Kwak
