Pours a two-finger white head that goes slowly leaving a good lace. Clear golden color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Slight malty nose. Starts mellow with some sweetness, finish is more malt than hop with no aftertaste. Keeps well, bought 8/2004. Expensive - $7.99 for a 16oz flip-top bottle from Hoosick Street Discount Bev. Troy, NY.

Hazy golden colour with big foamy white head. Fresh malty aroma with hints of pear. Malty and fruity flavor, acidic finish. Palate is rather thin.

jonas (6042) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2004
Stoneware bottle Ashen slightly honeyish aroma. Golden, low on visible carbonation, lacing creamy head. A bit of fruit - orangepeel (including the bitter parts), hay, peppery, slight alcohol burn. Unfortunately also a slight gunpowder and veggie note. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Not overly impressive.

leaparsons (8714) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2004
Golden with an off-white head of foam. Aromas are floral and hoppy with some nuttiness - oddly like some English bitters. Flavours are bitter and hoppy primarily with some sweet malts lurking in the background. Could be stronger on the final straight - the finish is spicy but lacking in oomph.

A fairly decent Belgian Ale, although I don’t know if I would purchase this again. A somehwat floral aroma, somewhat light body, and somewhat bitter taste make this a somewhat dull experience...somewhat. Ok..

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Hazy gold to dull orange in color, with towering, rocky, buzzing and highly aromatic head. Aroma is citrus, spice, lemon, straw, sugar. Solid body, strong palate presence, a lively hop profile, with sweet maltiness behind it. Very distinct and uplifting taste and a pleasant finish that takes it’s time. A real reward in every sip, and a decent Duvel clone, but certainly not the same.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Bottle. Slight banana, clove, and wheat taste. As with St. Sebastiaan Dark, it is a little thin in body. Finish is quite crisp and clean. Not bad, but not something worth writing home about.

75cl. bottle. pours an hazy gold with a substantial head. apple, spicy hops, orange and yeast in tha aromas. flavors of orange candy, apple. spritzy mouthfeel. becoming dry in the finish with a slight orange flavor lingering. kind of a let down in the flavors. I expected a little more. still a good beer.
