jercraigs (8485) - 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 (2976) - 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 (8436) - 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 hasn’t stood up to - what? Bad storage, transport, age ...? BBD is indecipherable. Will have to try again.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Semi-cloudy pour with some chunks. Malty aroma for a Belgian. Slightly sour butterscotch flavor. Decent head/lacing, but not too impressive. Definitely above average for a beer, yet middling to lower average for Belgian.

jimhilt (2469) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 5, 2005
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.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2005
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 (6103) - 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.
