Wolfbass (997) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 7, 2011
Il colore è bell’ambrato con schiuma compatta. Aroma classico dello stile ma secondo un pò povero. In bocca è tutto da copione, dolciastra e con poco carattere. Mi aspettavo di più.

I tried it at a belgian sampling at the Muddy Pig in st paul in 2008. It wat one of my favorite belgian style, nice mix of malts.

mjs (5375) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2011
(Bottle, 0.75 l, at least two year old one) Poured mahogany coloured and quite clear. Head was medium sized, fizzy and it disappeared quickly. Aroma had raisins, citricness, mead and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were raisins, malts, mildly sweetness, fruitiness, mead and bitterness. Aftertaste was dry and sweet. I suppose ageing hasn’t done good to this one. I should have drunk this as fresh. Aroma was superb.

puboflyons (2601) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 5, 2013
From the 330 ml. bottle marked C-CI-CABF-3.28-18:20. The pour is chestnut amber with reddish hues, decent carbonation leading up to a quick lasting off white head. Belgian sugar, yeast, bready malts, dark fruit, and a vague earthy hop note speckle the aroma. Medium to full body and smooth. Very sweet flavor but alcohol well-integrated. No real bitterness. Drinkable.

Lambister (340) - FINLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Large 0,75 l bottle from Tallinn. Pours a clear beutifully amber color with a long lasting small off-white head. It has a sweetish malty and spicy aroma with hints of syrup. Sweetish syrupy and malty spicy flavor with alcohol through the tasting. Finishes of with sweet long taste. First felt horrible but after some air totally different.

A fairly average Belgian ale. Sweet caramel malts, bread, some fruit notes. Apple in the aroma. Not very memorable.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Aroma - Belgian yeast, some dark sugary alcohol, and dark fruits Apperance - coppery brown body; liquid hazy; white head about 1/8" inch that settles into a foam (was not served in a Pauwel Kwak yard) Taste - nice and fig-like, there is that familiar Belgian yeast quality as well Palate - body is medium; texture is somewhat slick; the carbonation lively; the finish a little alcohol in the tongue
