skortila (4483) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2003
Smell is okay, malty sweet and fruity. Clear golden coloured, short head. Taste is weak, sweet and dirty. Verhaeghe can do better.

LINKBREW (101) - Santee, California, USA - JUL 17, 2003
pale color (a surprise), nice head. Slightly sweet, but a little tartness in aroma and taste. Disappointed.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2003 A strange one. Aroma is a mixture of shortbread, sweet n' sour sauce, with some lemon. Pretty nice texture, except for that slight sourness that feels a bit out of place to me. Mild, fairly pleasant, savoury. But doesn't taste quite right. I had higher hopes.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2002
Clear blond beer with a medium creamy head. Weak slightly sour, hoppy aroma. Slightly sweet-sour start with a light bitter finish. Unfortunately there is a light metallic taste to this beer.

pale golden colour, spicy aroma, slightly sweet, full with a spicy aftertaste
