jnelson_22 (118) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2010
Clear pale gold with lively carbonation and a huge head. The nose is light fruits (sour apple) flowery hops, and a light, musty, sour character like dirty gym socks... The taste leads with light malt, light fruits, flowery hops, light alcohol, light sourness; light, crisp and sweet. Refreshing, but not overly flavorful...

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 25, 2010
Draught into a chalice. Pours darkish golden, with decent and durable white head. Aroma of spices, fruit and hops, but rather bland on the palate, and not particularly memorable as a result.

StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Aroma has a slight hint of citrus and pears. Color is a nice blonde amber with good head retention. Light bodied mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the presence of alcohol with a bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is not hidden enough. The fruityness comes late and is very subtle (grapefruit). This beer is drinkable but I doubt I would buy or drink again.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Clean grain and yeasty aroma. Quite significant carbonation and head retention, appears almost exactly like the other "devilish" Belgian but a wee bit darker. Flavor is quite pleasant, if uninspiring. Solid.

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2010
A little hazy pale yellow colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of fruity malts like citrus and yeast. The taste is dry , malty fruits with some vanilla and a little stickey. The aftertaste is sweet with some bitter.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle pours pale straw with a dense soapy white head that sticks around for quite some time and leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is fruity and yeasty as expected. Notes of sweet grain and banana leave it smelling almost like banana bread with just a touch of green apple. Flavor shows the same and finishes slightly metallic with just a touch of warming alc. Overall pretty tasty, but at the same time, nothing too impressive.

ogreface (1331) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 8, 2010
Sejtelmesen és ködösen gomolygó ital aminek sötét aranysárga színe van.A tetején mint egy havas hegycsúcs tornyosodik a az óriási fehér és kemény nagy buborékos hab.Illata fűszeres,korianderes és enyhén almás.Ízében is megtartja ezt a fűszerességet és az almás fanyarságot,amit megtámogat egy kis komlós kesernyésség is.Nagyon jól érezni benne az alkoholt és kellemesen bizsergetnek az apró buborékok.Utóíze száraz és enyhén összehúzza a szájat.Finom kis erős belga ale.
