bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2005
Pale straw to light gold body with an overflowing white head. Citrus aromas especially grapefruit and then yeast. Big clumps of lacing. Smooth drinking, medium body, maybe a touch watery, this went down well enough and I didn’t pick up the alcohol at all.

Sammy (11170) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2005
sweet spice. Bottle work of art. Surprisingly refreshing summer drink. Yeast and cream but doesn’t seem a triple. Better than expected and popular with mates. Fruit, honey, suitably noticeably carbonated. Medium-light mouthfeel, lace and soap bubbles on top of golden yellow.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2005
(Ceramics bottle 50 cl) Comes as "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru" brewed by Sterkens. Orangey golden with a small head - and an almost flat appearance. Very soft mouthfeel. Malty with honey flavours and a soft honey-like sweetness - never cloying though. 090298

MiP (15264) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle. Citric aroma, hint of oxidization. Cloudy yellow colour. Yeasty flavour, hint of mold, slightly watery.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2005
Gazy golden colour with a off-white head. Yeasty spicy fruity aroma and a sweet spicy taste. Medium body and a sweet dry finish.

sayravai (4708) - 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. Don’t expect a classic, though. Quite similar to some traditional ales - although the cap on this one didn’t 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. It’s 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 (1089) - Southampton, 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 didn’t notice all that alcohol until my next beer. Far more simple than they’d 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.
