elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 4, 2009
On tap. Pours clear blonde with a nize big white head. Aroma is surprisingly grainy, with typical Belgian yeast nose. Palate is light and refreshingly crisp, reminded me of a Kolsch. Finish is medium-dry, though not notably so. Flavors are light, softly fruity, and grain like. Finish has some mild hop bitterness. It all blends together a bit sharp, not sure how though. Overall, I just couldn’t get a very good read on this one, a perception that leads me to believe that this beer may just be a bit boring.

vyvvy (4573) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Pours dark blond / amber with a large fluffy white head. The aroma has light dough, mild (if any) toast to the malt and earthy Belgian yeast. Medium smooth body with semi-soft carbonation. The taste starts like the aroma with lots of smoothness and some banana esters thrown in. The finish has some phenolic spice and some other spice that seems to come from hops. An okay blond, but nothing all that great.

330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Perfumey aroma, some apple, some pear. Deep orange, long-lasting tight small head. Appley palate, no real depth, but quite pleasant. Some almond in the finish. Certainly pleasant, but no wows. The macro equivalent of decent abbey beer, perhaps?

Jimthechap (1989) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 22, 2009
What a pleasant drop. The initial aroma was a touch foreboding; sweaty armpit typical of britannomycaes even though I am not absolutely sure it is fermented in that manner. However this gave way to golden malt aromas and a niff of underlaying hoppiness. The scent is unmistakeably Belgian. The goldenness permeated through to the first complex malt flavours and lush depth of hops. Smooth initially and then a prickliness from the carbonation. Incidentally the head lasted well after the beer disappeared... good lacing. Good to look at and well worth having another.

Nice beer, light and refrshing. Pours golden with a nice head that lingers at about an 1/4 inch. Small is spicy with some wheat over tones. Flovor is dominated with spice and grain. It is crisp but the flavor fads fast. It is a nice summer drink

Ratman197 (10860) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Bottle poured a hazy gold with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of banana, spice and light straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, light fruittiness and a hint of spice with a crisp dry fruity finish.

Sigmund (5607) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2011 330 ml bottle, bought at Systembolaget, Sweden. ABV is 6.0%. Golden colour, huge white head. Lovely aroma of Belgian ale yeast and spices, hints of farmhouse kitchen. The flavour is mildly spicy and quite refreshing, but I’d like some more hops in the finish. A very drinkable beer all the same.

Joakgust (1091) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle, 33cl - Semi hazy orange golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of yeast, alcohol and ripe fruit. Flavor is acid fruity with notes dried fruit and malt. Pretty ok belgian ale, no more, no less.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2009
Bottle, purchased at Fresh Choice in Te Anau. The beer literally bursts from the bottle upon popping the cap. Poured in increments, this raises a massive bubbly head on a cloudy orange-gold body. Spicy, sweet, yeasty, and fruity aroma. Delicious flavour of biscuity toffee, sweet spices, and stewed cherries. Really nicely flavoured, medium bodied, satisfying.

Fagner (23) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 1, 2009
Bottles in São Paulo and in Brussels - A good beer, golden appearance with a great and foamy head. Light malt aroma and a bit sweet taste. Very slight hops but heavy on yeast perspective. Not brilliant.
