altonbrownd (5446) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2010
Bottle from Beer Planet. Murky orange body with a huge rocky head. Nose of fruit and peaches. Taste is great of hops and pine and lots of fruits. Nice texture and smooth too. Well done.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2010
Effervescent orange with a massive, uneven billow of foam- very Belgium. Attractive, hugely soapy hop aroma brimful of pine needle, satsuma, aloe vera, yeasty freshness and curry leaf. Marmalade tangy with peppery, piney Belgian hop balanced with bready malt and vanilla. Crisp, lasting carbonation, hints of yeast and alcohol warm. Really clean. Saw this off in about 10mins and could happily have seen off another. Good, solidly hopped Belgian brew all round.

TheBeerGod (5983) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle. Golden amber with an enormous, fluffy white head. Aroma is spicy hops, grassy notes, Belgian yeast, dried fruit, apple skins and sweet malt. Taste is big spicy notes, grass, light straw, herbal hops, floral notes, sweet malt and fruit notes. Body is light-medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Finishes with more big spicy notes, grassy and floral hops, dried fruit, powdery yeast, and sweet malt.

thebeertourist (5179) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle from Bier Tempel, Brussels. Hazy orange with a big head. Perfumey, grassy and somewhat yeasty aroma. A bit soapy flavours, noticeable alcohol, a bit too much carbonation. Yeasty flavours. Not too bad.

cnardi (24) - ITALY - OCT 13, 2010
Tanta tanta schiuma: bianca, pannosa, densa. Colore biondo carico quasi arancione. Buoni profumi, direi erbacei. All’assaggio è molto buona: un bell’amaro che si sente immediatamente e che rimane per un po’. L’alcool (ma dov’è scritta la gradazione?) è piuttosto accentuato con una piacevole sensazione di calore. Molto gradevole la bottiglia, serigrafata.

sayravai (4708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2010
(Bottled) Quite pale, lots of foam. Flowery, lime-lemony, pale-malty, grassy, dryish, lightly saisony, quite bitter actually. Reasonably fruity when yeast poured in. Foamy, foamy, foamy. Warming alcohol presence, somewhat acidic. Not quite my type of Belgian ale. 3555
