Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2004
Golden body with a huge spectacular carbonation level. Enormous white head keeps climbing the glass sides instead of going down and this lasts for a good 2 minutes. Aroma is desert-dry, very floral and yeasty. It does smell spritzy. Wild fruitiness (apples, pears, orange, apricot). Superb soft mouthfeel, bubbly, smooth with every bubble tickling the tongue. As soon as it enters the mouth, the barnyardy and hay compenents get transported everywhere in the mouth. The dry bitterness hits immediatly and develops in a complex manner during the long finish. It didn’t seem all that complex in mouth though. No alcohol gets felt ever, but this is warming all the way through. A masterpiece of the brewing art. Cheers Martin.

Cloudy orange color; nice head, persistent, and lace. First impression in the aroma is the yeast; then the hop, and a delicate fruitness (oranges, apricots…). Excellent Strong Ale, with a good malt, and the bitterness is hitting immediately (a real Brut ;o), turning at the end to an almond kernels bitterness; some bitter orange peel. The bitterness is maybe too strong, but this original beer is really interesting.

BeanDip (117) - Florida, USA - APR 15, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Cloudy, butterscotch appearance with a massive frothy head that leaves a beautiful, clingy lacing all over the glass. Big Belgian fruity nose. Fruity Belgian taste as well, with a nice mellow touch of spicy hop at the end. Not quite as effervescent as I expected, but very nice.

Ungstrup (31473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 15, 2004
A clear yellow beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is lovely; sweet, citrus, nuts, and peach. The flavor is very dry, fresh, and very carbonated. It has some notes of caramel and a dry hoppy yet sweet aftertaste, that lingers for a long time.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2004
This is truely one of the champagnes of beer. Pale yellow in color, extremely effervecent, with a nice fluffy white head. The aroma is fruity and estery yet not overwhelming. The flavor is light with a slight malt character balanced with hints of oranges and pears. The bubbles dance across my tongue leaving a clean finish and a slight after taste of fresh fruit.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2004
this beer would do nicely between champagnes. It's fresh, winestyle with a touch of raisins, but it remains a beer aswell, due to the well blended malts. The clear goldenyellow color is attractive. Instead of champagne in a giftbow this will make a statement too.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2004 I have purchased 15 bottles of this incredible Belgian ale over the past few years.I’ll only drink it on special occasions like the birth of my twins, Christmas, New Year, Anniversary,etc. It deserves the same respect one would give a bottle of Dom Perignon or a lovely aged Barolo. It’s that good! Re-rated 12/24/04. After having my third bad bottle in the past year(2 bottles totally flat, one infected) I’m going to have to lower my rating from a 4.4. When you get a good fresh bottle, this beer is incredible, but I don’t think I’ll try again.

cloudy yellow with loads of carbonation, that works well for this style as the bubbles are small as you would expect from champagne. I think they used champagne yeast but abandoned the method champagnoise and left it as bottle conditioned. nice bready champagne yeast aroma. hides the alcohol under layers of flavours that are almost too many to identify. Sugars, liquorice and fruit - oranges and pears - no real hop aroma but the palate is very dry.
