Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a big foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and subtle dough bread yeast is OK. Taste is quite sweet with some weird spice mix and a dry metallic finish. Sweetness was a bit too cloying and texture too oily for the style. Body was quite full with some great carbonation. I can think of at least half-dozen of more balance beer in this style and definitely too many flaws for me to try again.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 11, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 La bottiglia fa veramente una brutta impressione, ma quando la versi sembra una copia un po’ cattiva della Duvel; in realtà ha una gradazione alcolica molto più amichevole, sebbene il colore sia più torbido e scuro e meno limpido al primo sguardo. Ma la schiuma è la stessa, copiosissima; aroma fruttato leggero, che svanisce in un soffio d’alcool, sapore invece un poco più gratificante, con un tocco di mela che si confonde con il luppolo nel finale leggermente amaro (anche se non quanto ci si aspetterebbe). Piacevole!_______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE____________The bottle truly makes a bad impression, but when you pour it, it seems a evil copy of Duvel; in fact it has a more friendly abv, even if the appearance is way more hazy and dark. But the head is the same, huge! Aroma is fruity and light, which vanishes in a gentle and warm alcohol blow, flavor is a little more complex, with an apple note which melts with the hops in the slightly sour finale. Pleasant!

bu11zeye (12096) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a rocky white head. Aroma of mustiness, floral, coriander and apple. Flavor of floral hops, honey, and light citrus.

probstblueribbon (3206) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2007
33 cl bottle via Lubiere, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden, very small white head. Aroma: Light apple, coriander, a little yeast/dough, a fair hit of dank, aged hops, some floral honey, a bit of lemon peel. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence, noticeable astringency. Flav.: A bit fruity, musty hops galore, a bit dirty, a touch of the honey and spices, something fleeting – I almost want to say a chemical note like ammonia; dry, leaves a biscuity, bread crust aftertaste, a bit of alcohol sting and reasonable bitterness for a Belgian.

Mine didn’t have “Zomerbier” on the label, but this seems like an appropriate summer beer. Something to quaff while relaxing on a patio in Liege.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
33 cl bottle. Little cloudy with yellow colour and a little white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, honey and spices. Nice bitter flavour with notes of spices and little fruity. Ends up quite bitter and dry.

oh6gdx (21776) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2007
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with minor white head. Aroma is spices, yeast and overall very meady thing. Flavour is almost the one of a tablebeer, very sweet and spicy. Hides the 6.4% well, considered it was almost like having some dark Tafelbier...

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2007
My hotel room party tasting. Nic little spicey ale going on here, blanced hints of lemon peel, rounded sweetness with a dryish spicey finish.

thebeertourist (5025) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2007
Bottle at Trappistenhuis, Gent. Hazy orange, medium off-white head. Strong hoppy aroma: fruit, herbs and spiciness. Heavily bitter flavours, fruity hops galore- quite extreme for a Belgian. Medium body and carbonation. Nice hoppy manifestation Belgian-style.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2007
Bottle. Clear yellow colour with mostly diminishing white head. Fruits, malt and yeast in the rather powerfull aroma. More fruit and malt in the flavor, followed nice hoppy bitterness. Sweet and sour finish of average duration. Main stream blonde.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2007
Bottle @ Het Waterhuis, Gent. Light chalky malts with a clean lagery profile. Pleasantly assertive leafy hops rounded off with mild fruity belgian yeast. Refreshing level of bitterness. Tasty.
