Brewed according to the ancient abbey recipes. A beer brewed with love, is drunk in the right mind.

Nice ruby colour. Nice aroma of hops and yeast -- and hay! Foamy sharp mouthfeel - a bit unpleasant. The alcohol is clearly present despite the only 7%. Bought this summer in Dranken Geers in Gent. Maybe it’s not retired after all?

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2005
Dark, dark brown with a bit of a head initially, but it disappears to nothing pretty briskly. A fairly musky aroma, with licorice and raisin notes. Sweet flavour that I found to be a bit cloying. A fizzy and surprisingly thin palate. An interesting beer, but it falls short.

kramer (5735) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2005
250 ml bottle, via BelgianShop. Pours a dark mahogany with a firm light brown head. Lightly sour with some woodiness, dark fruits, and rather vinous smelling. Taste is very vinous as well, lots of dark fruits. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good beer overall.

Ungstrup (33405) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2005
A hazy amber beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of fresh apples as well as over ripe fruit, the flavor is pretty much like the aroma though added a touch of caramel.

bierkoning (11938) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2005
Slightly malty, somewhat sharp aroma with a hnt of cinnamon. Malty flavor with the slightest touch of roasted malt. Velvety, but it seems there is nothing there. The flavor almost immediately vanishes from the tongue, only leaving a hint of raisin in the aftertaste. Disappointing, although not really bad.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2005
Dark brown-red colour, average head. aroma is heavy roasted, but at the same time something fresh-fruity. Palate is full and soft, creamy. Finish is that "burned" taste, just enough bitterness and a touch of alcohol. I love it.

omhper (22726) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2005
Bottled. Ruby colour, no head. Aroma of canned pineapple and cheap white wine. Sweet and sharp with medium body. Hard and metallic, perhaps some red berries. Flavourwise OK, but I’ve never before encountered a beer with such disastrously sharp mouthfeel.

madsberg (11283) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2005

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2005
Swwet nose, with some dark fruits, and hints of alcohol. Dark brown body, small off-white head. Yeast flavor, with some sweetness and some metal, alcohol in the end.
