Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2005
Very heady with tight foam. Copper/ambler color with floating particles but quite clear. Grapefruit and spice aromas. Cloves, ginger, citrus notes with a suble maltiness. Good beer to start with if you are afraid of Belgians. Cheers!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2005
Beautiful deep crimson, near-mohagony color, huge head, cocoa-toned, dripping lace on the glass. Nutty aroma, cola-ish, deep and earthy, some spices, hints of chocolate...nice. Taste: yum, more of the same nuts and cocoa from the nose, very tasty, like a mellow dubbel, or a more lofty brown ale. Delicious. And that’s only the start of it...this is simple and complex at once, a very deceptive ale, almost light and unassuming, but ultimately stirring with character, the flavor getting livelier and more exceptional the further in we get. given time, I could think of a million uses for a beer this great, but the best one is as an active ingredient to an oncoming case of happiness. I’m going to have to make this beer a more intimate part of my life, and keep it well at hand, for anytime I need a jolt of delight and deliciousness.

larsniclas (5528) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2005
Bottled. Dark amber. Fresh, ozonish aroma. Rather vinous. Champagneish palate and rather thin.

rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2005
Shiny amber, offwhite head. Somewhat yeasty aroma with malts. Weak malty flavor quite thin compared to other St. Bernardus-brews...

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - APR 8, 2005
Hazy dark amber colored, white head. Sweet malty and caramelly aroma, somewhat sticky with notes of yeast. Malty flavor with brown sugar hints and yeast. Dry finish. Drinkable but not very interesting.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Cloudy, brown, with a good-sized tan head. Cidery nose with yeast; tangy, light sweetness. Flavor is light, almost watery. What is there is fairly bitter with biscuity malt and a light lemony tang.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Excellent session beer of great depth and complexity. A gem for only 6.7%. lots of fruit forward notes with good spice and hop notes. Clean malt background with no hint of astringency. Toasted almonds and cocoa with Bananas pears and turbinado sugar.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Appealing reddish to dark reddish brown, cloudy, white head, aroma ... slightly above average, some notes of dark fruit, though faint, flavor is mainly that of mild dark grapes, sugar, and some bread, finish is light and slightly bitter.

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2005
Very pretty hazy ruby/brown with a quickly diminishing big head to a very thin soapy froth. Aroma is a bit thin. Palate is very light and soft. Mildly acidic. Caramel, burnt sugar and very earthy. Peculiar chocolate taste that wanders in and out. It’s quite balanced, and the flavours although subtle are very nice, but watery.

jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Bottle: Pours a nice dark color in the glass. Slight red tinge in light. Doesn’t fill up the St Bernardus glass that it came with. Flowery aroma. A good fruity taste with a very smooth finish
