Skinnyviking (8958) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2007
Bottle. Small and fluffy but lasting white head. Hazy yellow body. Pretty spicy and hoppy aroma with fruity undertones (apple / pear). Relatively high carbonated fruity and hoppy flavor plus a long bitter aftertaste. Alcohol percentage seems just right.

Dedollewaitor (15580) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2007
Pop.. Sprinkly lively carbonation. Nice hazy yellow body with a little white head. Aroma is of yeast & spices. Soft, sprinkly & filling mouthfeel. Hoppy & dry end. Nice!

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle. Very sweet candy nose, light but nice. Clear gold with a thin white head and decent lacing. Nice flavor. Sour, sweet, and spice balance nicely with nothing overpronounced. Slightly thin but supportive of light flavor.

BelgiskOlklub (1052) - Viby J, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2007
Disappointing and anonymous beer. Virtually none white head that’s fully diminishing. Has a light body with soft carbonation. The beer is sweet, has a light hoppy finish and hints of soured milk.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2007
Pours a slightly cloudy dark gold color with a bit of small yeast sediment and a medium, bubbly, white head. Decent aroma of honey and doughy yeast. Good flavor of honey and doughy yeast, the sweetness is well dosed and the honey flavor is pleasant, there is also a light acidity. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and medium to lively carbonation. This is a simple belgian ale but I enjoy it more than others who have the same honey/yeast flavor profile.

rederic (3257) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2007
Hazy honey gold hue, with a white head, but falls quickly, yeasty, fruity nose of pears, stewed apples, with some sweet pale malts, with a light note of honey and spices, and a subtle floral hop aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp, yeasty, fruity character of ripe apples, pears, with a sweet honeyish pale malt accent, with a faint flowery hop note, leading towards a malty, light dry finish.
