   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2007
From a 11.2 oz. stubby bottle with a freshness date in the lower right hand corner, sampled at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Poured a clear orangey golden with frothy, rocky, bubbly white head, good retention, small amount of laced sticking. An estery nose of apples, bananas and small whiffs of alcohol, a light sweet maltiness in the background, not much else. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Pleasant tasting, if not average, kinda of bland and inoffensive, the alcohol is noticeable right from the start by providing at sharp sting on tongue, warming in the palate, followed by tastes of sour apples and bananas, sugary malts, a light spicy bite towards the end, and a finish of apples, sweet malts and alcohol. I too found this to be overpriced for what it is worth, I paid $14.99 for a four pack, too much, not worth it.

Stefano (1898) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 14, 2007
Cloudy amber colour, good head that remains and nice lacing. Aroma with notes of alcohol and hops. Sweet flavour, medium to full body, almost lively carbonation. Moderately sweet malty fruity taste.

Beer4000 (5044) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 1, 2007
330 ml Bottle. Dark clear golden with a big white head. Aroma has some kind of sugar sweetness, fruit and yeast. Flavor is sweet, spicy, fruity and some alcohol. A bit warming alcohol aftertaste. A pleasant straight forward strong Belgium ale that’s trying to copy Duvel. Duvel is still a bit better.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Spicier cleaner yeast than in many Belgian beers - but present throughout. Fairly malty with suprising fruity depths for such a pale beer. Fairly sweet but without too much alcohol apparent. A little tartness but not enough to make this particularly drinkable.

yngwie (15190) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
Bottled at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. Had the young mr Roman serving it, a really friendly and nice guy. The beer is golden, and unclear, with a white head. The nose is a bit weak, grassy and sweet. The flavor is more towards hay than grass, but there’s sweetness there too. A full bodied beer with a spicy finish. Decent, nothing special. I prefer the Ename series from this brewer. (070103)

Hansen (7443) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2007
Yellow and clear. Has a white, lasting head. Odd aroma, chemical and a bit of sulfur. Flavor is sweet and fruity.

Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2007
A Duvel knock off which is not a bad thing a little darker than a Duvel and not as much hop bite. Page 433 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and only 248 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Bottle at home. Seriously foamy head. Gold color. Lemon scent. Pretty flat, with spicy finish. Not much texture here. Flavour is grassy, bit of coriander, spices and fruity. Fair enough.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2007
poured a pretty clear gold color with a nice amount of froathy brown head. Aroma is pretty sweet, a bit of lemon, yeasty, and caramel. Flavor is basically sweet and alcohol undertone, no real impressive characteristics there. Overall, this is the one you give to a BMC fan at a belgian beer tasting.
