FleeVT (40) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2008
11.2 Fl.Oz. bottle, Best Before 04/23/2010. Slightly cloudy nutty brown color with a creamy white head. Light on the nose with a floral sweetness and maybe just a hint of malt. Extremely carbonated in the mouth. Nothing overpowering in this beer, it has a medium body. Not too flavorful, subtle hints of caramel with bitterness. Finishes clean.

Poured on tap at Max’s Belgian Fest 08, poured a dark but slightly transparent brown, with sweet aroma. A sweet carmely flavor but not overpowering. This is easily the best Belgian ale I’ve sampled.

Bottle from Bishopas Arms in Linkoping. Body is dark brown-red. Begie head. Aroma is complex... Plums, malty, nuts, red berrys. Flavor is malty and milky. Vinous but not sour. Has a big mouthfeel. Bubbly.

travita (4805) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Cloudy brownish color with a big thick head. Malty smell is really nice. Thick body makes the beer almost crawl rather than flow into your mouth. A pleasing taste as well.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber that darkens towards the center of the glass. Big off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is floral, cloves and malt. A bit sour tasting fruity malt flavor. Foamy medium bodied with a lingering tartness.

AmEricanbrew (6659) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Tea colored with a thin tan head. Smells of cotton candy- spicy and yeasty. Med body with a creamy mouthfeel. Weak flavor of sweet and spicy earthy malts.11706

jmm1 (132) - Andorra la Vella, ANDORRA - FEB 10, 2008
From 33cl bottle, best before 12/01/2010. Hazy dark amber body with a long lasting foamy beige head leaving a nice lacing. Honey, cherry, apple and vanilla in the nose. Sour attack in mouth, banana and spices developing at the middle with a dry subdued finish slightly hoppy leaving a roasted malt aftertaste. Smooth full body with a medium carbonation acts well with the first mouth approach, but sparkles too much at finish. Still this is a great beer, complex but easily drinkable, refreshing but filling, which deserves high grades and multiple tastings.

JFGrind (1987) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Poured a thick bodied amber with a two finger foam top. Dough, bread, dried fruit, and oak flavors all in each sip. Just like many other people said in their ratings this is an above average Belgian Ale. Not cheap either, but well worth the price.

Pours deep amber into a Trappist glass. Fluffy off-white pancake head with excellent retention. Mild pit fruit aromas. Crisp with figs and plums. Dry finish.
