PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga, 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark orange with a thick creamy head and excellent lacing. Minty aroma, a touch of alcohol and some bubble gum. Flavor has a bit of caramel, nuts and molasses and a wee bit of alcohol seeps through. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick, very warming with no carbonation, which is appreciated. A very decent and drinkable Strong Belgian.

Robe rouge surmontée d’un décolleté blanc. Acide, alcool, métal, caramel. Très très bof. Presque pas intéressant, en fait...

oh6gdx (23913) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, huge longlasting beigishorange creamy head, lacing. Aroma consists of sugar, rye and stinging alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, due to very low carbonation. Very hoppy and sour flavour. Hayish and harsh alcoholic finish. Sticky palate. Not that interesting beer...

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2005
Orangey amber body with a medium size frothy white head. A little bit of pepper on the nose, does that signify the alcohol, also some orange. Pleasant easy drinking taste, alcohol doesn’t seem to show, medium to light in the body, soft malts. Agree with the coomercial deScription " strong ale with a mild taste"

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
Amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a bit of pepper. Light bodied for the style. Flavor is spicy, and I kept detecting a slight metallic/chemical aftertaste.

ClarkVV (4841) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 Probably a 2004 bottle at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest, 4/02/05. Had this immediately following the gold. Lightly spicy, a bit dusty, dry nose with a bit of toast, dry fruits, appleskins and a touch of caramel sugar. Flavor is sweeter than the gold, not surprisingly, with a good deal more candi sugar apparency and some yeast dryness on the end. Orange peel, a touch of orange creme and light caramel and nuttiness. Medium body, though not anything strikingly fuller than the gold, maybe a bit more sugar to create a bigger effect. Orange body, with some faint auburn tints and an off-white head, very ligth haziness.

giarcsr (104) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Bought this beer just because of the name, It has a definite belgian beer aroma to it that has hints of fruits, the color is a light amber with a lot of crap floating around in it. The flavor is nice and smooth, nice mellow maltiness that finishes with citrusy flavor to it. Very drinkable belgian.

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.

Amber color; creamy head. Simple aroma, some malt taste, quite strong but nothing special.
