sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 (Bottled, ceramic, 0.5l, "St.Sebastiaan Grand Cru", refined-rate) Hazy golden color with a pathetic head. Yeasty and fruity, sweet toffee aroma with slight earthy sourness. Yeasty, fruity and spicy, oaky flavor with honey and toffee hints. No alcohol visible. Medium-bodied, refreshing and sticky palate with almost no carbonation. An easily drinkable, refreshing, yeasty and spicy ale. Donít expect a classic, though. Quite similar to some traditional ales - although the cap on this one didnít seem very tight, which may play a part in that.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2005
This poured a deep golden body with a tall, creamy white head. Itís got got of funky hop bitterness in the aroma overlaid on a sweet malt base. Kind of watery. The taste is well balanced between a malty fruitiness and a floral & earthy hop bitterness. The finish is mildly bitter. Decent.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 24, 2005
Sweet sugary aroma. Golden color with white foamy head. The flavor is rich with hints of fruits. The palate is unusually light for a Belgian ale, almost watery. The aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Crockett (1035) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2005
Pours deep gold with a big bubbly faint off white head. Clean spiced bread aroma. Strawberry juice. Somewhat watery. Hops are delicate and hard to detect with all those sweet fruit malts. Very wet finish. Refreshing. I didnít notice all that alcohol until my next beer. Far more simple than theyíd let you believe.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2008 Pours golden yellow with a thick head. Hints of yeast and hops are in the nose, and the taste is very similar but with a slight hint of spice in the finish. Good stuff, but not great. Too bready and fluffy tasting.

jercraigs (8825) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Bottle. Caffe Volo. Golden body, very small white head diminishes quickly. Alcoholic sweet malty aroma. Flavour is inappropriately over-run by the alcohol, with barely a glimpse of the underlying malt. Average palate. Disappointing.

GregClow (3014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
Orange-golden colour with virtually no head. Aroma is typically Belgian - yeasty and a little spicey - but not very unique or exciting. Body is somewhat flat. Flavour is sweet (honey, caramel) and a little peppery. Quite disappointing - I have a feeling it may have suffered from transport and/or storage issues.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
golden colour with a frothy head... tastes of pur honeycomb with a slight pinch of citrus... quite surprpisingly on the light side tastewise for a belgian. But ever so smooth!

JorisPPattyn (8688) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2005
This is known as St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru in its country of origin. Pale, drab amber colour; virtually no head, just some transparant bubbles. Quite alcoholic nose, and definitely some oxidation. Dull, lifeless sweetish taste, cookies, old sherry, oxydized. Thin body, flat as a pancake. A beer that hasnít stood up to - what? Bad storage, transport, age ...? BBD is indecipherable. Will have to try again.
