Medium clear gold orange with tiny, just visible sediment flecks under a mountainous, white, variable bubble short lasting head. Very faint bitter hops and malt, fresh fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium to light body, lowly carbonated, bitter and malt flavours. Tastes more like a heavish pils that a strong Belgian. Quite ordinary really .

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.

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.

75 cl bottle branded St Sebastiaan Grand Cru. Best before 30.08.04 and was therefore offered as a souvenir gift from the kind gentlemen at Holemans Drankencentrale. Poured it carefully to avoid the big sediments on the bottom, still some of it escaped into the glass. Otherwise clear, deep orangey golden with a medium white head. Strange aroma of sweet malt and sharp hops. Sweet malty flavours behind the musty cellar character (from the aging I suppose). Some peachy fruitiness. Dry, grainy texture. Warming alcohol. Well-carbonated. Not altogether successful, but it could be due to aging as well.

gift from my brother. Not impressed with this beer. Pours golden pee color. Fly might like to shower with it. Too sweet and alcoholic for my liking. Somebody said grape juice like and that’s accurate.

I bought this beer because of the bottle. Beer pours (in Chimay glass) an orange golden with small head, maybe 3/8's inch. Better looking than some other blondes. Aroma is of corn and straw. Flavor has a bit of honey, but more pine, and then some more straw - nothing very strong, not too much to taste here, but a decent brew. Nothing special. Very drinkable, no hint of alcohol. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Golden colored with a fluffy white head. The taste is slightly malty with notes of spices and fruits. Finishes kind of fast.

jgb9348 (4735) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2004
Hazy orange body with a thinnish off-white head. Aroma of curacao, coriander seed, wheat and apricots. Light-bodied; Sharp astringent taste up front with some fruity sweetness. Aftertaste shows bitterness and not much else. Overall, not strong and not pleasing. I bought this 75 cL bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 11-April-2004.

Bonze with some sticky head. The aroma is sweet with some malt & grainyness. Flavor is sickeningly sweet with metallic hops and some toasty grungy finish.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pours amber with a rocky head and nice lacing. Honey aromas followed by brown sugar, citrus, hops and some yeast. Mettalic flavor, yeast, citrus, stale honey, and hops. Thin body with a metallic aftertaste.
