Travlr (21638) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Bottle at Vaudree 5. Clear golden, big white head, scant lacing. Aroma of apples and apricot. Flavor is slightly sour, lots of fruits and malt, bitter edge. Lots of character.

Nekronos (4111) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 13, 2010
Fantastic one, very sour and belgish if I may say. The foam was quality although not big which is correct for these beers.

Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2009
Bottled as La Botteresse Blonde. A hazy light amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and vanilla. The flavor is sweet and also with notes of malt and vanilla, leading to a dry finish.

thewolf (12131) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle, bought @ BelgianShop.com.
Pours muddy golden with a fine, large, frothy, white head. Lightly fizzy sounding, but still staying on for quite some time. Aroma has yeast, green apples and oranges. Some milkiness to it as well. High, prickly carbonation, fair, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant. Good malty sweetness, some fruity feel from the yeast and a fine, balanced spiciness at the end. There is surely ginger in this one, lending the finish both spiciness and a peppery feel. Quite nice, actually.

omhper (23711) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2009
Bottled (as La Botteresse Blonde), thanks oh6gdx! Cloudy pale orange small head. Yeasty orangey nose. Orvallish perfumy funkiness and rich amounts of hay-like sweaty hops. Medium bodied with spritzy mouthfeel and long bitter spicy finish. Quite brilliant!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper body with a white head. Ginger, spruce, cinnamon. Some sweeter underlying candied sugars and citrus sweetness but well masked by the harsh spiciness of ginger etc.

LilBeerDoctor (3772) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma is super spicy. I canít identify everything, but definitely some pepper and spicy light fruits. Flavor is definitely more Blonde-Ale like with spices in the finish. Light, sweet, fruity, spicy. An interesting Belgian ale. (On a side note: I am quite impressed by these Belgian microbrews put out by 12% importers--none have failed to impress!) 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of lemon, orange, grassy herbs, clove, liccorice-like spices (sorry, this is probably the 50th time Iíve mentioned in my ratings that I donít know my spices), and all of these nice spices playing over a whole-grainy sort of bready malt. Flavor kicks up the bready, sweet maltiness while preserving lots of orange zest and a nearly hot spicy kick. This is my fourth of these 12% Imports of heretofore obscure Belgian beers, and for me, itís 4 for 4 of "wow, these real Belgian microbreweries are bitchiní."

Stefano (1972) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 7, 2009
Clear golden colour with a huge white head. Sweet fruity aroma with yeasty notesS slightly perfumed and alcoholic flavor. Soapy bitterness in the finish.
