MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2009
on tap at the Iron Horse, Westwood NJ. Deep golden colored body, lightly amber at the center. Not much head, thin & foamy light tan. Aroma is honey, corn malt, also husky and grassy. A little citrusy too. Flavor is dry and grassy malt, yeasty and grainy, a little tangy and citrusy. Crisp carbonation. Havenít had this since 1991 and my friends thought it was skunked back then. They just didnít know what it was supposed to taste like.

Amberkleurig. Wat moutige geur en smaak, caramel, gist., beetje onaangename smaak. Nooit zoín liefhebber van palm geweest.

peponi (145) - POLAND - APR 6, 2014
Aroma: herbal hops, zesty. Appearance: nice amber-golden clear color, poor white head. Taste: low/medium bitterness (herbal), zesty, malty backbone, slightly acid. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Nothing special and quite poor ale.

RW80 (340) - NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
25cl glass from the tab at the local steakhouse. Appearance: Dark golden with medium sized beige head, (Just 2 fingers.) Leaving some nice lacing. Aroma: hay, caramelised malts, hay,light citrus, Taste: Start with the sweet malts, and a hint of yeast, then goes over in a slightly bit mor of sour freshness. Not a real shocker but for a mass produced product, more then ok. Thin watery body, medium carbonation.

VTHopHead (1503) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 5, 2014
11.2oz bottle - Pours a darkish amber ion color with a small white head that virtually disappears. Aroma is a bit malty, with a bit of skunk. Malty flavor and definitely skunked... I would call this "Belgian macro-brewed"... not worth repeating.

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle. Light amber with small head. Light caramel malt. Mild flavor and thin body. I donít get places that are serving this like itís something special. Pretty bland.

uckelman (194) - Baden-WŁrttemberg, GERMANY - APR 3, 2014
In little 25cl bottle from the AH. Pours clear, reddish amber. Medium slightly sandy-colored head. Aroma is sweet and roasty, hints of molasses. Finish is astringent. Medium body. Bittersweet.

SamTheBarrel (316) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2014
750ml green corked and caged bottle, labelled Palm Speciale Belge 5.2% ABV, barcode# 5410783900001, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is dark golden with medium sized beige head, that reduced quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma of lemon peels, pears and hay. Flavour of lemon peels, pears, wheat bread, a hint of spices and herbs. Taste is light sweet and light-medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, thin soft texture and fizzy carbonation. Uncomplicated, light and thin bodied for a Belgian Ale, refreshing and unoffensive, quite lager like.

sharkydodson (61) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 29, 2014
very light malty and spicy aroma... mild fruity and malty taste, with shades of flowers and spices... dry and sweet ending...

Maxbier (75) - Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2014
From bottle. Dark golden amber color. Aroma is faint of candy dried fruits and musty hay. Sweet and yeasty flavor. I wonder if this beer tastes better in its home country on tap. Rather than a bottle of undetermined age from a NJ retailer.
