HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
300ml bottle from glouglouburp shared with blankboy and garthicus. Mostly clear ruby-amber with a fairly large creamy beige head. Typical Belgian sweet and yeasty caramel ale, nice and fruity, a hint of red wine sourness - quite liked it - taste followed, candied fruit, quite sweet, but with that slightly sour red wine joining the yeasty thickness. Thick, syrupy, mildly carbonated, a bit sour in the finish - not sure what to think of this - finishes a bit boozy.

Yves (2834) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2011
Amber coloured beer with large rocky off-white head and lots of carbonation. Malty yeasty aroma with some spicy hints. Full sparkling palate. Fnish is malty sweet with a bitter endng and some roasted hints.

rodenbach99 (4208) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml. Bière ambrée avec une mousse blanche. Le nez est fort agréable avec des arômes de mélasse, de fruits confits et de sucre d’orge. Le nez est for complexe. La bouche ressemble au nez avec ses goûts de mélasse, de sucre d’orge et d’épices. Le goût reste longtemps en bouche, elle est très longue. La finale est quelque peu sucrée.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle I grabbed in Belgium. Pours brown with a large off white head. Aroma of Beligan yeast, caramel. Flavor is sweet fruit, caramel. Good flavor though and a solid brew.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2011 Buonissima birra, forse l’unica pecca è la quasi totale assenza di frizzantezza.

Hermod (6414) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2011
33cl bottle from Bierzwerg. BBE 31/08/2012. Poured mahogany color with a beige, lasting head. Nice yeasty, fruity, slightly sour aroma, with some caramel coming in later on. Flavor is alcohol, sweet fruits, yeast, long sweet finish with caramel and alcohol warmth. Maybe much alcohol in flavor, but not too sweet. Nicely balanced.

Bottle (33 cl) from bierzwerg.de. Hazy dark chestnut with medium beige head. Fruity, estery aroma with notes of plums, marzipan, some spicy notes and faint herbal hops. Medium bodied with soft but lively carbonation. Semi dry with medium bitterness.
