argo0 (12501) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2006
(16oz ceramic bottle) Completely flat from the bottle, once again the seal of bottle cap to ceramic was inadequate from St. Sebastiaan. Particulate-hazy amber body. Aroma is very sweet, honey, flowery, peach. Taste is moderately sweet, maple, some herb, cookie dough, flowery, alcohol, light cantalope, grape. Watery, flat, medium-full body. I would be willing to re-rate with an intact bottle, but this rating will be factored in -- a bottling defect like this is on the head of the brewer.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a huge frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy yeasty citrus aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a drinkable soft beer.

FatPhil (11829) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2015
500ml ceramic bottle (Beer Express, Tallinn)
Super fruity aroma, tons of esters. Alas just a hint of tomato once or twice. Pale orange, small head. Lovely perfumey belgian ale taste, pale malts, pleasant herbal light hops. Quite simple, but very pleasant belgian.

thewolf (11646) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Poetzh, Flensborg.
Pours clear, pale golden. Lot of small bubbles surching towards a big, frothy white head. Good duration. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, coriander, oranges, biscuits and apples. Quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is a little underwhelming, but still nice. Quite sweet, with biscuity malts dominating between some exotic fruits - pineappel, apples and oranges. A slightly dry finish.

bierkoning (11526) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2002
Frothy, off-white head, diminishing fast. Sweetish flavor ith a hint of sourness. Hops, citrus and a bit of cinnamon in aroma and flavor. Thin beer, and the alcohol content is hardly noticable. The beer would be much better if it had more body.

Benzai (11358) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Ansjelaah. Hazy almost opaque orangy color, medium sized white head. Smell malts, some fruityness, lightly sweet. Taste lightly malts, a slight fruityness, a bit more bitter in the flavor. Not bad.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2010

Aroma of pale malts, bitter leafy hops, peach and a nutty finish. The taste is candi sugar, pale malts and a spicy finish. Medium bodied.
