ruigo (1807) - PORTUGAL - OCT 29, 2013
Shared a 50cl ceramic bottle form Cora (Luxembourg). Nice clear golden colour with a large white head. Light aroma of yeast, citrus and fruits. Medium carbonation and light to medium body. Flavour is light bitter with a more sweet end. Overall, not bad but nothing special... Except the bottle.

Ferris (8949) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle - Vintage 2011 - Apple, yeast, orange, grains and bread. Clear gold with a thick white head. Honey, apple, grains and light orange. I get a very mild bitterness in the finish, but the sweetness overpowers. The thick mouth feel makes this a slow going beer. I think this would pair well with a desert or fruit, much in the way of an Ice Wine. As this warms, it is starting to taste more like a light quad. Fruits stand out more, and although apple still prevails it is still pretty good.

davidm (1996) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle 500ml in Tolosa. Nice, similar to a tripel. Aromas of caramel, bread, leaves, and green grapes. Taste is sweet, slightly sour, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, with a thin head.

stevoj (3119) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Light golden colored body with high foamy head.. Hops dominate the aroma and flavor, astringent finish. Aroma is hops, pine, floral. Taste is more of the same capped with some light alcohol burn. Decent effort on this one.

Poured from a porcelain bottle into a glass. Nice golden color with a large head. Not much of an aroma. Light crisp Belgium taste. Decent beer.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Beautiful bottle. Usually that is meant to mask a bad beer, but this is not bad at all. Golden orangle color with a white head. Citrus or orange peel aromas with yeast and spice. Flavors add caramel and hops.

Hydra85 (9) - - JUN 8, 2013 does not count
Light smell, light flavour, citrus hints. Very subtle and soft mouthfeel. But the taste not that special

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2013
Clear golden body with medium to large head. Simple malts, classic Belgian yeast, thin. Bit of herbs but generally not very exciting. Simple taste profile à well, although it has just enough malts to make the alcohol and yeast work, it’s still Underhopped. Boring brew. (75cl bottle from Bierparadijs)

Abio (1817) - Waasland, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2013
Got told this one is brewed at boelens. They are sold in a stone bottle. Yeasty, with some milky and citrus combined with spices. Not totally mixed well, but drinkeable. A bit to simple maybe.
Earlier Rating: 8/15/2010 Total Score: 3.4
Pours out golden coloured. A medium sized head that holds ok. Pretty nice spiced aroma, some sweetness and fruits comes up, and some yeast. Not bad. Yeasty taste with spices and fruits. Sweet that goes to slight bitter at the aftertaste. Not bad at all. Pretty good balanced, but nothing renewing.
