(1 pint 9 oz bottle) At the Kimchee Palace high above the 401. Huge white head with a clear, orange body. Acidic, apples and spice flavour. Smooth yet tart. Thanks Jess!

It was pretty, and smelled nice, but... I just couldn't palate it. It was far too bitter for me, and not in a pleasant way. I have another bottle. I'll have to try again someday.

One of the most crisp and apple core dry beers I have ever sampled. Notes of dry honey, and horse saddle take mention. A tremendous brew!

Vintage: 2000 Malheur is another one of those brews that is hard to classify as a beer, I’m talking this was like a Champaign, but with a much richer creamer palate. Poured a glowing creamy orange / golden body with a big velvety white head.
The aroma is spicy, Large notes of fine Dominican tobacco. The flavor is slightly buttery, yeasty, with HUGE suggestions of Cedar wood. Flavorful spices, some notes of apples and pares, a rich silky palate and a bone-dry finish, VERY Fine brew.
I’m thankful that I have friends that are kind enough to share there beer with me.

skortila (4712) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2003
Aroma is 'spicy'. Cloudy, yellow coloured beer with much foam and debris. Full, strong taste, though smooth. Bit sour and spicy. Smooth palate.

caesar (5567) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2003
I just gotta say: i love those belgians! Clear golden color, with a lot of small particles floating around. Aroma is triple-like spicy, cheesy. Sweet and spicy taste, champagne yeasty and apple notes. Only slightly alcoholic palate, but hardly noticeable, and who cares after finally being back to the real beers!

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2004 Faint cheesy, fruity and peach aroma. Golden color, some debris floating around, large bubbled white head, very good lace. Sweet, spicy, champagne, apple, peach, little yeasty and soft. After tasting several German mediocre beers this was really "welcome back to Belgium" as ceasar said! --- rerate 06/01/04: Had a cellared bottle but I'm afraid it doesn't age well or the bottle was wrongly cellared. Aroma was of geuze while all the flavors and complexity was gone and just some citrus and cider-like flavors where left.

cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 29, 2003
Beautiful brew for a truly special occasion. Very savory. Medium golden with an overstuffed pillow type head. Subtle alcohol in the white grape and crisp apple flavors. Dry spruce/hoppy nose, ebullient body and resinous finish. I enjoy this (yes, yeast and all) despite not being a fan of champagne.

JorisPPattyn (8226) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2003
Gushing to overflowing broken-white head, champenoise-like, but much more stable than any natural sparkling wine. Orange beer with champenoise pearling. Nose of alcohol, brandy-ish. Very outspoken nose of light-brown sugar 'cassonade', some liquorice. Also a hint of old pine-wood. Bitter taste - not hoppy, but spicey, as orange peel or kumquat. Retronasal more beery taste, even a hint of hops - and lots of liquorice. Very dry - mission accomplished. But the pale-brown sugar taste ruins quite a bit. Alcohol-burn and peppery. I've ambiguous feelings about this one. It is a really new beer. I think it is a very good example of typical Belgian brewing. But they might have stopped before the liquorice and cassonade...

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 11, 2003
Immediately recognizeable as containing Champagne Yeasts. The "tiny bubbles" fizzle up from the bottom like a nice champagne should. But wait ... this is a beer. Nice head retention, great gold coloring, refreshing and crisp to the taste with some great malty textures. If you don't like champage, don't do this one.

Golden pour with a sizable white head. Yeasty,earthy nose. Reminiscent of fresh cut grass.Very light on the tongue with a champagne like effervescence.Very nice brew with a little spiciness behind a bready/biscuity profile. Hides the abv expertly.
