leaparsons (8258) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2004
Cloudy orange with a bubbly white head. Aromas are fruity and yeasty with bubblegum and spices. Flavours are citrus fruit, especially orange with with bitter hops. Warming alcohol on the palate this is like a more grown up, thicker on the palate, Duvel.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2004
Cloudy golden color; big head. Quite poor aroma: sweet, corn, light malt. Malty, dry mouthfeel. Powerful, not impressive.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2004
33 cl bottle. Served in Leffe chalice. Dark gold with quite a bit of floating sediment. Nice head. Delicious citrusy and spicy aroma - very delicate and inviting. The taste is nicely full and rounded, with citrus-notes and pleasantly warming alcohol. Impressive finish. The mouthfeel is light and airy and very full. Good drinkability - especially for such a strong beer.

Boutip (4818) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2004
Bottle: Poured a golden colored beer with a nice thick head. Aroma is quite hoppy and floral. Taste is also hoppy and floral with a hint of citrus (lemon, orange) with a bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden which I’m starting to believe is a Belgian miracle. Good carbonation with standard body. Makes me want to investigate more beers from this brewery.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
This is close to a strongly carbonated Gulden Draak. Not very sweet, though, but quite hoppy and bitter.

Sparkling honey beads floating on a milky alcohol pond...Yeast-tinged meringue over a pear and peach pie...Combining the qualities of many a Belgian style (funkiness, creativity, strength, nobility, rigor, heat) and thus making a very enjoyable evening sipper...

Rastacouere (6135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2004
Cloudy golden hue, white foam becomes a ring with nice belgian lace. Coriander spiced lemon pie aroma. Hay, cream, meringous, herbal, fruit esters (apple, pears). Very yeasty spicy palate, lots of coriander, cloves and pepper attack the tongue gently. Mostly sweet and alcoholic unfortunately with a light earthy grassy bitterness touch in the finish. Well defined fluffy/foamy mouthfeel from the high carbonation. Overall, it's pleasant enough to deserve high marks despite the few aspects I would change, it remains rather complex with well defined fruits and balancing bitterness unlike many poorer examples.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2004
Golden coloured. Classic golden Belgian strong ale aroma and flavour. Lots of fruits and some yeast.
Earlier Rating: 6/3/2004 Total Score: 4.1
75 cL. bottle. Best before 2003. Cloudy golden coloured with good curtains. Nice aroma. Hoppy and grassy with loads of pears. The flavour is bitter, mature, hoppy and dry and at the same time fresh and flowery. Notes of grass and hay as well. Long, hoppy aftertaste.

Golden color with a white head. The taste is fresh with notes of yeast and spices. Finishes with a wellbalanced sharpness.
