enjoyed in 33 cl bottle ( hevig hoekske / antwerp ) not realy a palm taste more a dark blonde beer. something to much carbonation . taste ... is it me or can i split this up ? when you realy want one this does taste good. nice aromas, good and much taste, not to heavy, not to light .. but when you just drink it cause you want a beer, the carbonation takes it over.. diffrence in the bottle? or in the mind? anyway, drink this one in thirsty , and in-the-mood-for-one-condition. if they’d fix the carbonation they’d be higher in my ranking...

Jerre (2620) - Waregem, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2006
Deep orange to copper. Small thin head however, what little bit there is has staying power to the end of the glass. The aroma is rich with roasted and caramel malts that carry into the flavor. Light mouthfeel with a crisp finish. Somewhat of a lingering roasted/caramel malt finish. Very tasty. This is like Aerts 1900 ?

Swaroga (1305) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2011
33cl bottle. Light golden with a good white head. Nose : Yeast, pepper and some citrus notes. Little raspberry aromas hidden in the background. Sip : Well carbonated, still foaming in the throat but not annoying. Sweet malt that goes into cherry alcohol. Ending with medium sourness of a cider. Nice harmony. After couple of sips I feel the hops staying there for good. Good beer.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2006
0.33l bottle at home. Clear golden color with thin head and ring of lacing.Malty and hoppy nose with hint of sournes. Medium body and hoppy bitter taste. Long bitterly aftertaste. It left in the mouth quite nice full malty filling. As I can see from other comments it seems that they do not keep same quality for every brew. Sometimes it is good and other time it is not. Or it has to mature in the bottle? This bottle I had (BB 16-08-2007) was quite nice.

12oz Bottle @ Jewel of the Seas: Let me preface by saying that, as I tried this on a Royal Caribbean ship, it may benefit from being sampled alongside RCI’s assortment of bland pale lagers. The pour sparked a slightly inebriated discussion of whether it was "orange or pumpkin" with no decisive winner, but we knew it offered a foamy white head. Aroma suffered from an inappropriate glass but I definitely pulled out the typical belgian spices and citrusy fruits. Flavour was quite nice, and not overly carbonated in the mouthfeel. Good spice accents, stone fruits, and malty sweetness. It became my cruising "go-to", although as noted, possibly by default.
