rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2005
(Bottle at Le Poechenellekelder, Brussels) Golden, with a nice lasting offwhite head. Malty, nutty flavor with some toffee. Malty flavor, toffee, then it turns more bitter. Quite thin compared to other belgian beers.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottled, BBE 01/2006) Clear amber color with a tight white head. Slightly sour-aciduc-plastic-cardboardy aroma. Some maltiness, but mostly plastic and cardboard in the flavor. Light-bodied, almost watery palate with lemonadey carbonation. A very lightweight, tasteless and quite disapointing brew.

bkurtz (728) - PERU - JUL 22, 2005
Pours a beautiful amber with average head. No lacing. Slightly bitter, grassy hops. Great everyday ale.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Vieux Temps used to be on of the best known light Wallonian ales, when it was brewed at the Mont St. Guibert facility. But InBev hasn’t really done much to promote this in recent years. Beautiful amber colour. A dry bitterness not that different from a pils. Some caramel. Light body. My version was 5% ABV. 071093

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Pouring a rich golden color with a diminuitive head, this has a very fruity nose with aromas of plums and cherries. Spritzy in the mouth, it has a pleasant sweet malty taste, still with the fruits, and a subtle hint of smokiness. Refreshing ale.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2005
One of the milder ales of Belgium--great copper color and a generally pleasant combination of flavors. Served in little 25cl bottles, this is good as a daytime tipple served with a flavorful Belgian lunch, though it’s no match for the heavier-weight ales in the flavor or fun department.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle. Sour smokey walnut aroma. Reddish brown color with small head. Lightly smokey and nutty malt flavor. Light body. Nice.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2005
(bottle) Clear amber colour with medium white frothy head. Chestnut aroma is dominating. Medium sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, soft carbonated. Quite tasty: nutty, malty & yeasty with a light hoppy finish, not long lasting.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2005
Bottled. Copper coloured. Small head. Cookie malt aroma. Slightly sweet and caramelly. Slightly hop-bitter finish. Sufficent carbonation. Good belgian ale of the refreshing variety.

DanielBrown (3700) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2004
Bottle at Poechenellekeller, Brussels. Fairly generic Belgian amber beer. Light, fairly sweet maltiness. Plainish, with a slightly dull, soured aroma.
