Just an average Belgium beer. Brown in color, sweet in taste. Mild in malt taste, not much else.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2007
Bottle. Moderate hoppy, toasted malt, light smell of ginger. Light brown colour, clear body with a small fully dimishing head. Sweet flavor, medium duration. The body is rather light than medium, the texture is dry and the carbonation is very flat (nearly missing). Not my kind...

On draft at San Diego Brewing Company. Donít ask me how, but I could tell from the tap handle it was going to be bad... and I was right. I donít know how they get away with calling this a belgian ale. It was like yeasty water.

SilkTork (5166) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2004
Bottle. Sept 2002. Disgusting nose - like rotting leather, damp rust and stale vomit - which creeps over slightly into the taste, which is otherwise quite sweet and pleasant; this is a rather English style beer but much sweeter on first impact, fading down into warm leather and iron. A most curious brew that is spoiled by the dreadful aroma and the sickly sweetness of first impact, but is nevertheless interesting to try. [2.6]
Bottle. Darkish amber with mixed foam and bubble head. Same sort of aroma as experienced nearly two years ago - a sort of vintage malty ale with the cardboard notes that come from a beer bottled off the yeast. It's not revolting, but it's not great either. Ugh. Just tastes like a stale British bitter. Soft caramel sweetness up front. Very poor mouthfeel, like sucking damp cottonwool. Hops are dreadful - stewed and lingering unpleasantly in the finish. The sweetness is like honey - and there's just a bit too much of it lingering around. No - I don't like this at all!

On tap. Clear golden/red color. Almost no head. Low-medium carbonation. Not very interesting for a belgian ale.

(33 cl bottle, from the boys at The Rover) Clear copper color, small white head. Sugary oxidized scent. Thin sweet malty taste. Watery mouthfeel. Very lo wbitterness. Weak metallic aftertaste.

A bland Belgian beer, which comes as a surprise by Belgian standards. A bit fruity, not much though. If anything, a thirst quencher - at a push.

I saw numerous folk drinking this beer all over Belgium and the Netherlands. I figured Iíd try it. It was bottled and poured into a tulip. Brown in color. Some what like a Brown English Ale. Very little in flavor. I was expecting caramel from the color but really canít say I could pick anything out.

Bottle. Pours light amber with a small white head. No detectable aroma, taste is sweet fruity, no hops presence, dissapointed.
