bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2006
Bottle. Light amber coloured with a large head. Sweet and also kinda spicy. A little perfumed in both aroma and flavour. Feels somewhat artificial and sharp. Hints of alcohol and confusing fruit.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 A hazy orange beer with a huge light orange head. The aroma is sweet with extremely strong notes of peaches and apricots - somewhat perfumy and artificial. The flavor is medicinaly fruity - especially apricots, but also spices, and a weird artificial note. The body is thin.

jimhilt (2400) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Pours a one finger cream head that fades slowly leaving traces of lace. Almost cloudy amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Piney/spicey nose. Starts balanced with a spicey flavor, hints of bitterness at finish. Gift - 22oz bottle from the brewery in Snoqualmie, Wa.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Vertical test between fresh and 1 yr. old samples, both on draught. Marks above for the aged beer New one is hazy, old is clear gold, small yellow head Y: 4 Young one has a very nice nose, flowery even if itís big time coriander. Peppery. Y: 7 The aged one yields again coriander, but without the fresh flowery streak, more soupy. In the taste, the coriander overpowers the young beer, leaving no space for anything else Y: 5 The old one has a strange taste, tastes like shellfish flavoured with coriander, but itís quite OK, way more balanced. Slick MF, light to medium bodied. Palate again covered by coriander Y: 3 Aged palate is freed of most of the coriander, calmed down and balanced. Well, the nose is great Y: 11 The cellared one is well balanced, and makes a good drinking beer.

floral hop ester yeast nose, super hopped, numbing bitters, heroin for the palate, truly an epic adventure indeed

legion242 (2172) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2006
Really blew me away with appearance and nose. Toffee nose I thought and huge fluffy head. But then the flavor is very unbalanced toasted malt. I am gonna finish the bottle and get back to ya.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 Bottle. Pours an interesting orange/amber/brown color. The aroma is incredibly intriguing with hints if spice, suger, and many different types of fruit - while also being heavy on the coriander. The taste comes of as quite complex and intense especially in the coriander field. Definitely makes use of your whole tongue. Hints of citrus and candy come through towards more sips of this great brew. Overall is a great and tasty complex example of a Belgian-style Grand Cru!

19Ei8hty (1170) - Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 Lots of fruitiness in this one. Lots of different spices but not spicy overall. The tropical-ness does really shine, kind of a hawaiian essence to it. 9-22-07; Rating the new batch - This is a great ale. Belgian in name, its really like a South Pacific take on its namesake, veery rich and malty. Sweet and flavorful with a great lingering bite. One of my first craft-brews remains one of my all-time favorites. Kudos.
