BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2003
The coolest glass around. Body was amber with a great white bubbly head with legendary Belgium lacing. Aroma was spicy and sweet. Flavour is quite sweet and nicely bitter. The finish is dry and lasting.

RichardGretton (4292) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2003
Rosey red beer, with a strongly alcoholic nose. Very nice toffee notes to its flavour with additional vineous qualites. A smooth and pleasant drink.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2003
Malty, doughy aroma, cherry, blackcurrant, definite alcohol presence. Sweet and fruity, pretty much in line with the aroma with a smooth shortbread flavor. Remains fruity with grape and papaya flavors right through to the finish. Alcohol is only mildly noticeable.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2003
Dark amber/Near brown in color with a beige head. Earthy sweet aromas. Lots of spiciness in the flavors. Finishes like an apple pie.

LoveABeer (141) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2003
Loved this Beer. Poured a lovely dark golden color, with a medium size lasting head. Great flavors of apricots, caramel and spices. The beer got better after every mouthful, considering the ABV.

artvandalay (16) - USA - FEB 17, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Very nice. Lots of carmel and vanilla tones. Medium bodied, good creamy offering, with clean brussels lace.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2003
Wonderfully spicy, peachy, apricotty aroma eminating from the copper colored beer with a small, white head. Aroma is deceptive, as the flavor is muddled malt, some fruitiness and a clean finish. Average mouthfeel.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 13, 2003
It's surprisingly intense, with a fruity and zesty palate which finishes quickly leaving you wanting more. And yes, definately drink it in the special glass.
