Stop brewing this alcoholic stuff. Too much alcohol. I taste just a little bit beer appearance.

MiP (14001) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2004
Bottle. Citrus/grapefruit aroma. Slightly cloudy yellow colour. Semi-sweet, quite bitter, citrusy flavour. Grapefruity and hop-aromatic aftertaste.

hopdog (9537) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Poured a medium, hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas and tastes of yeast, lemons, and spices. Noticeable alcohol. Nothing special.

madsberg (10597) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2004
Bottled: Light golden coloured. Off white head. Huge and dense. Yeast, spices, fruit, alcahol in the nose. Fresh. Alcahol, fruit, yeast, spices and grapefruit in the flavour. Quite complex. Ends on a sharp alcaholnote with some light citric nuances.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2004
Golden. Hazy, white head. Great beer with nie hoppy finish. It heats you up, the alcohol is quite obvious.

750 mL, 2/01 cork; Best Before 29.03.03 (sampled 30.10.04): explosively popping cork removal, as the beer breathes before pouring a small chimney of white bubbles pokes through the top of the bottle…cloudy orange pour with a wonderfully large, full white head; creamy and tightly bubbled, regal. Wildly intense aroma that almost screams of funky Belgian hops. Sweet citrus notes, tart fruits and yeast tingle the nose. Pointed alcohol wraps up the tongue, amazing it wasn’t more evident in the aroma. After moving past the alcohol, a funky fruitiness arises and a wild funky yeast is unleashed. Bitter hops dominate the rest of the palate, flavours and finish, this one leaves me feeling warm and relaxed, but it wasn’t quite as enjoyable as I expected.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2004
3/01 on the cork. Clear amber body with a fluffy alabastor head. Sharp, intense nose is fairly sweet with a strong hop presence. Sweet honey, piney hops, tart apples and light flowers. The body is fairly full and with a strong carbonated bite. The flavor is good, but difficult to grasp. It seems to me that the beauty of most Belgians is the interaction of the malts and the yeast, with hops providing a nice balance. Here the hops try to dominate. Piney bitter hops slowly take over sweet, fruity malt. A bit of grain toward the end as the hops start to fade. Warm and relaxing, but just a bit out my preference zone.

diabel (1619) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2004
Bottle Fizzy, white head - mostly diminishing. Excellent lace. Sparkling, yellow body. Hoppy (pine) and yeasty aroma. Medium to fully bodied. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter finish. Some vinifar in the flavour too.

leaparsons (8650) - 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 (15990) - 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.
