downender (7627) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle. Amber with a moderate white head. This did nothing for me. Tired hop aroma with some soggy yeast. Flavour was forgettable before a dry finish limped into view. And I thought Palm Speciale was dull...

goozen (3680) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2007

Hoser (372) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2007
Malty, Apples, Plums and yeast but I understand it has changed over the years to a boring beer. 481 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide.

Skinnyviking (8424) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. Short white but lasting head. Dark cobber clear body. Mild and spicy hgops aroma. Flavor of oranges and caramel. Lot of carbonation.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2007
Spritzy red amber pour with generous white head. Sourish yeasty aroma with a hint of woodsiness. Mellow dusty spice, yeasty dryness, banana, wheat, metal, and lingering doughy malt afters. Leaning towards a very bitter Wit or biscuity Alt. Refreshing and flavour-packed for the ABV, and a considerably better beer than recent reviews give it credit for.

BelgianBeerGal (3653) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2007
UPDATED: APR 22, 2009 25cL bottle from Malmedy. Rather average ale. Small head that disappeared quickly. A good pub beer, but nothing amazing.

On tap at Mirabelle, Brussels. Was new to me. Spicy but a bit bland nonetheless. Just another ale.

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 On tap into its own glass, Au Bon Vieux Temps, Brussels. Don’t come here. I don’t know why I did; I was wandering around Brussels, slightly drunk, just hopping from place to place, and the little alley this sits in looked mysterious and inviting. I walked in the place to see two old women gossiping at the bar. Tap list sucks. Anyway, thought I’d try the namesake beer. Almost clear gold with sticky fizzy off-white head. Racing amounts to a few straggling bubbles (around 5 bubbles, plus or minus 1). Smells like a yeasty bready dubble with some bad cheese. Bland. Kind of minty, slightly medicinal, with a soggy piece of bread disolved in half a pint of water as the main impression. Body is not bad, somewhat fizzy. Not worth 3 Euro.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
250ml bottle at <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/ShowPlace.asp? target=blank>St. Veronus in Peterborough, Ontario. Orange-amber in colour, lasting medium-sized off white head, some spotty lacing. The aroma was of light caramel, slight sweetness, citrus, yeast. The flavour was of light yeast, caramel malt sweetness, lemon zest. Creamy mouthfeel, light body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes light and quick with a mild bitterness. Not to bad at all but at the same time not extremely interesting.
