Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2006
Bottle: Clear orange gold with a yellowy white head. Straong, heavy phenolic aromas tending to the darker side of the spectrum. Some fleshy fruit too (pineapple? grape?) and lots of juicy tangy wheat. In the mouth I got peach and pear notes under a minty clove and spcy wheat banana chorus. A noticable reisny presence too. Nice, and a little different.

Deep golden/amber color. Heavy malty aroma. Taste is also a bit too malty, with a slight fruit flavor.

iosonomarco (41) - Milano, ITALY - NOV 28, 2006
Al naso è dolce, maltata, con notevoli e invitanti sentori fruttati (uva, ciliege) e floreali. Al palato la prima cosa che si nota è un intenso sapore di caramello con sentori di miele, poi con la degustazione salgono ti tono il malto e il fruttato. Il retrogusto è piacevolmente amarognolo.

danmalleck (26) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2006
Bottle. Beautiful dark amber colour, with a very medicine/alcoholic nose. Not so vibrant on the nose or the tongue. Somewhat tasty, but I’ve most definitely had better. Not as fruity or flavourful as I would like.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle at Saloon, Amsterdam. A reddish and strong ale with fruity and alcohol scent (not good). Taste of malts and berries. Decent enough.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2006
11/18/06- 13 oz. on draft at the Hop Leaf, Chicago. Overall, I also agree this was a "nice" beer. But, it was pretty straightforward- not very complex. I may have to try this one again, since other than the unique glass, I didn’t find this one to be too special. Lots of other more interesting Belgians out there.

Robe orangée claire surmontée d’une mousse beige crémeuse qui persiste. Arômes de cerises âpres. Saveurs de vieilles cerises, d’autolyse de levure et de caramel.
