harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Pours a light brown color with a big frothy head, that is lightly tan. The smell is big and malty, with lots of caramel and toffee in the flavor, slightly smoked and sweet at times, the flavor is kind of unbalanced and watery. The mouthfeel is thin with little to no aftertaste.

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Pours a clean brown with a light beige foam. Smells full of caramel and smoke...tastes similar to the smell only slightly watered down. Almost no aftertaste and no real thickness to it at all. A bit bland, but its sweetness tastes fairly good.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Nuts and dark fruit in the nose. Appearance is brown with a nice head. For a low ABV belgian this has loads of flavor. Grapes, nutmeg, caramel, chocolate, spices, and something slightly sour I cant seem to put a finger on. It's a bit on the carbonated side but that's the only flaw I can find in this beer. Another great beer from Sterkens!

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Cloudy red/brown color with a large tan head. Very sweet grape and caramel aroma. Fairly sweet grape and caramel flavors with some hops bitterness. Crisop feel with a slightly dry finish.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Murky orangeish brown color with a large tan head. The aroma and flavor were dominated by sweet caramel...some licorice and slightly sour tones as well. Crisp feel...soft carbonation.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2004
Very sweet brew. Malty toffee in the aroma. A little thin texture. Smooth feeling. Nice delicious caramelly toffee and chocolate flavor. Too sweet in the end, though. Finishes with a strong filthy heavy feeling of malt and toffee.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Nice red color. More hops in the nose than I expected - slight spice to it. Not bad, pretty drinkable Belgian.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Nut brown with ruby notes. Minimal head with nice lacing. Fruity and rich. Caramel and alcohol. Very nice beer.

This is not a bad Belgian Ale. Malt, fruit and toffee flavors. Finish is crisp, clean, and dry.
