bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2005
Bright golden colour, with some very very small particles and a nice creamy head. Aroma of yeast and malt, with some citrus and fruity notes. Smooth taste and quite sticky texture, with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness, with a little more hoppy long finish.

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2005
Dark golden, white head. Aroma from figs, cream and almond. Creamy, nutty flavor with fruits. Malty at first, thean turning hoppy and bitter.

Sten (651) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Amber-golden coloured beer with the taste of oranges and malt, there is a sence of citrus and spices. But not one of my favourites. (Bottle 33cl) (Bottle 33cl aged 4 years, aroma 7/10, appearance 4/5, flavor 8/10, palate 4/5, overall impression 15/20. This makes a total of 3.8. Not bad at all. Thanks to the innkeeper of ’het kafeeke’ at Heultje for giving me this bottle.) New rating. Sweet and malty aroma, flavour is also sweet, malty and spicy. (Bottle 33cl)

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark golden with a soft and very lasting head. Very close to the "Tongelo Dubbel Blond" which must be the base of this with some minor alterations in the recipe. A lovely velvety soft mouthfeel and a less sharp bitterness. 261097

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
schuimkroaat (423) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2005
33cl bottle, - out of date- bbe 8th Feb 05. Orval-coloured, turbid, small head. Malt with some peach, and unmistakeably alcohol in the aroma. Flat, rubbery and with a strange bitterness. Aging apparently does not improve this beer, will try a fresh version again (which I remember as being somewhat better).

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2005
Bottle. Dark golden colour with a big white head. Light spicy yeasty aroma and a sweet fruity light alcoholic taste. Medium body and a sweet alcoholic finish.

2.8
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2005
Amber color with a white head. The taste is sweet with a nice fruityness. Very light dry spices on the palate.

3.2
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 11/20
aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 6, 2005
the best balanced of the Tongerlo beers. Nice yeast spice notes with good malt balance a just a hint of alcohol. light candy and toffe flavors predominate with a slightly acidic bitterness.

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Very chunky stuff. Looooots of floaties evenly suspended throughout the beer. Nose quite yeasty, bit tart, an odd spicy-mintiness as well. Nice flavor, very buttery and full, lots of yeasty chewiness. Slightly tart and fruity with orange and strawberries.
