Mega murked caramel brown with an orangy glow and some bigtime floaties suspended within. Fluffy medium cap of ivory; slim sheeted lacing sticks. Aroma is lightly fruity with white grapes, pear, and green apple; has a slight edged candy sweetness mixed with a bit of lambic-like sour tart tone. Taste is pretty mediochre, some off wheat sweetness mixed with a steady under current of white wine tart and drying pieces. No real outstanding flavors peak my interest here. Plain, tartish, and drying with partial tin notes, um, not nearly what I’ve come to expect from a Belgian Pale. This is perhaps too pale? Feel is tarty and dry with a thinner medium body with metalic notes all over the place. Thank goodness its only 11.2 oz, its gonna take awhile to get through this.

Diacetyl and dirty socks. not a good combo. Very unpeasing chalky palate. Belgian in origin only.

TBone (14784) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Bottled (BB 10/2005)
Hazy dark amber, no head - looks like sahti. Aroma has brown sugar, rye, hops, spices, a bit odd and chemical. Mouthfeel is flat - low carbonation. Hoppied, sour. Harsh in the finish, English bitter-like flavor. Dry malt character. Unbalanced and not very delicious.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Pours a hazy copper, fading to amber around the edges, with a medium white head. Cherry and wild yeast aroma, lemon and citrus, with a touch of spiciness. The cherry has only a faint tartness to it, more sweet, mild lambic barney tastes in the finish along with some banana esters. Light and fizzy on the palate.

euserphriendly (167) - Holland, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2005
strong red color with plent of yeast in the bottle. A huge head will form due to the yeast giving off gas. The beer is a bit on the dry side with very little flavor.

leaparsons (9101) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Red and brown with a white head. Aromas are fruity and yeasty with spices. Flavours are mellow and malty, with oranges and spices. Smooth on the palate with a good sparkle. Its OK.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2005
Bottled. Pours a reddish orange colour with a medium foamy head. Aroma is yeasty and has a strong note of half-fermented fruits, somehow weird. Yeasty, citric, fruity taste with notes orange, banana and a slight spiciness. A decent beer, but nowhere near the Gold.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2005
