This is the original beer from Ecaussinnes. 7% alcohol. It is spiced, but you don't really taste the spices. Nice amber colour, lightly caramelised with a light bitter taste at the end. A very nice beer, recommended by Michael Jackson.

Amber as in orange to copper in color. Decent head retention. Nice rich specialty grain flavor, roasty and caramel malts, perhaps even a touch of special B? Clean finish with a moderate mouthfell.

Ungstrup (30935) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 11, 2004
[I believe this is the one I had - at ZBF 2004 it was called Ultra Ambree] The color is hazy light brown and it has a fine though collapsing head. The aroma is sweet malty. And the flavor i sweet malty with notes of yeast and coriander. The alcohol runs prickling over the tongue before a dry hoppy end sets in.

Pleasant enough Belgian. Called an amber on the lable. Interesting to see their take on an ale without having the high alcohol that many of the Belgians have. You get the fuirty notes in the malt and it has a certain yeasty charm.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Another second-tier Belgian in one of those stubby bottles. Sorta sweet, sorta holiday spice like, and sorta astringent.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2003
A somewhat hazy orange on the pour, the head mountainous and light tan in color, frothy and after decomposing the lace forms a delicate sheet upon the glass. Malt is dominate in the lightly sweet nose, a tad plum like, but a pleasant beer to sniff, and the start sweet and malt laden, the top middling in feel. Finish is quite acidic but not unpleasant, the hops perfect in their spiciness, droughty long lasting aftertaste with a bit of “belly warming to boot”, drinkable and I think a fine beer have a couple of after a fine dinner.

Jayb0 (1103) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2003
Solid belgian strong. Deep orange with hints of tropical fruit and malt in the nose, but enhanced by a fresh herb or spruce presence. Spicy and yeasty with a solid malt backbone. Lingering head with good lacing. Enjoyable.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Medium amber color; dense white head. Aroma is fruity malt, and some alcohol and yeast. Spicy, malty and sweet, with hints of phenol and a faint non-hop bitterness. Finish is a bit astringent.

fiulijn (16642) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2003
Beautiful amber color; giant creamy head; fine perlage, plentiful; beautiful lace.
Nice malt aroma, slightly fruity, honey.
Good body strngth, malty, well balanced, with a nice aromatic final. Just a light note of medicine, quickly disappearing; spicy.
Not original, but really a solid one.
