tmoreau (2570) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Served in a beautiful, Maredsous logo stemware at a launch party at the Bavarian Lodge, Lisle, IL. Poured a clear, golden/amber, with a white head that diminished to a bubbly layer and a small ring of clingy lacing. The aroma was a little sweet, with notes of floral, fruit, and light spice. The flavor continued these and a light malt sweetness but also exposed some tartness. Medium bodied and good carbonation. Would have liked some finishing dryness, but didn’t sense any.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Draft @ Toronado San Diego. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big, white, frothy head that lasts for a while and leaves a gorgeous lacing. Aroma is fruity/yeasty, rich in notes of apples, banana and vanilla, delicately spiced with coriander and cardamom. Flavor si sweet and soft with the yeast a little too present, showing touches of vanilla, honey and coriander. Very low hop profile.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle courtesy of BelgianBeerGal. Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells of perfume, sugar, yogurt, citrus, grassy. Tastes of caramel, sugar, some light spice. Nose is much better than the taste.

eManu (462) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2009
Pours a hazy deep orange with a huge foamy head that stay a long time and quite a nice amount of foam stay until the end. Aroma is of fruity malts. Flavors are dry and fruity with good malts some vanillas and brown sugars, bitter and a little sweet and sour but very well balanced. Very very good beer, I love the whole Maredsous family.

Alphadelic (1766) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2009
On the orange side of amber with a foaming white crest. Home to an acidic grapefruit nose with a light hoppiness. In the mouth it provides tight fruit flavours along with malt notes arising slowly. A strangely sterile finish. Thin but smoth and nicely carbonated. Boozy but a very pleasant beer.

thornecb (4539) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Pours gold into a Trappist glass. Bright white head slowly recedes to coat surface. Crisp and hoppy upfront, turning fruity, yeasty and boozy. Taste similar to a white wine. Lasting hop finish. Very nice.

sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 25, 2009
Clove aroma, sweet honey notes with flowers and coriander. Some alcohol. Slightly spicy flavour. Sour grapes. A hoppy bitterness, that lasts through the finish. Awesome.

Strangebrewer (902) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2009
Poured hazy gold with small white head. Sour, dough aroma. Medium carbonation. Dry mouthfeel with light spice and some citrus. lingering aftertaste. Not my style.

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2009
330 ml bottle. Deep golden colour. Clear. Medium-sized white fine-laced head. Spicy apricoty aroma. A hint of banana and citrus. Characterful yeast. Citrusy flavours. Very high carbonation level. Light-bodied. Weak peppery flavours. Pilsener malt. Very drinkable, except perhaps for the carbonation level.
