BelgianBeerGal (3014) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 33cl stubi bottle from Aarschot. Very pleasant beer but I thought its sweetness masked some of the other characteristics. Very good, just short of great.

TBone (11905) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2007
Bottled (BB 12/2008)
Hazy nut brown color, big creamy off-white head. Caramel and grape aroma, also some dry spicey notes. Sweet flavor, crisp mouthfeel, but not really alcoholic. Some berries, can’t pick which one (rasberry?). Ok dessert beer, sweet but not too cloying sweet. Just lacks some character.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2007
33 cL bottle. Pours red/amber brown with a good creamy light brown head. Aroma is sour while the beer still is too cold, becomes more malty, yeast and spiced as it heats up. Flavour is first slight berry-sour, going strong malty, sweet to dry and then yeasty. Finish is clearly spiced and alcohol makes an appearance.
