duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2002
Nothing really champagne like at all as others suggest. Still very big and powerful. Heavy mouthfeel, with some detergent flavour with some peppery alcohol, like many tripels. In fact this reminded me of a blend between Westmalle Tripel, Chimay White and Orval. Complex and rich, yet i don’t really think they pulled this one off as well as they could have, still a nice one though.

domtom (65) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 29, 2002
Pale amber with a very nice head. Aroma of urinal (!). Disgusting. Not good.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 29, 2002
cloudy orange colour with a giant head, aroma of orange, fresh and yeasty, tart with a touch of acidity, dry and slightly bitter finish

Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2002
It has a nice golden-yellow colour with a giant head. Its aroma is strong, astonishing, floral and makes me feel like in an urinal. It is quite bitter, slightly tart with an acidic touch. The finish is quite long and bitter.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2002
Hazy golden yellow w/ huge, frothy head and lots of carbonation. Yeasty, spicy, fruity (orange, banana) nose. Warm, tingly alocholic feel. Flavour is also yeasty & fruity w/ a nice warm peppery, spicy finsih.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2002
Hazy light golden appearance. Nose is citrus, an air of tartness, hint of lemon. Firm malt notes along with a hint of barnyard. The alcohol is dominant, huge presence, smooth body of leather and huge sweet malt. Finishes with a subtle hoppiness. A bit sweet for my tastes, but a complex, unique ale.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Oakes (11779) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2002
Glowing pale, slight haze, abundant foam; toasty, peppery, champagne-like aroma (and no I’m not being fanciful); dry, white peppery body, slight acid, reasonable potency is belied by unique complexity. The Malheur yeast likes the methode champagnoise. Truth is, so do I.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2002
bright golden coliur, big white head that sticks around for awhile and leaves great lace on the glass. lemony, yeasty, champagne like aroma with hints of bread and apricots. beautiful spritzy, bubbly mouthfeel. nice sweet and sour citrusy flavours witrh hoppy and alcohoic notes. a very enjoyable and very interesting belgian beer.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 16, 2002
Great looking beer. Slightly cloudy, bright orangey. Huge, thick white head. High octane like aroma brutall in any sense. Such combination of softness and strength of alcohol is possible?! Sweet yes, alcoholic yes, drinkable YES. Well done...YES.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2002
Citrus, yeast and apricot aroma. Peach colour, huge head, lovely lace, and loads of carbonation. Orange, lemon, kumquat and hops are happening here. Sour/sweet, but luscious, wonderful tongue tingle. A most unigue Belgian Strong!
