12 Above scores seem a bit harsh, this is a very drinkable simple dark ale.

DeanF (1687) - Nunavut, CANADA - NOV 4, 2010
Ah, just like old times.... a 250ml bottle, extremely cheap, but from a good Parisian source. It pours average, a modest head and a modest light gold body; it smells of grains, fruitiness, and some hops. The taste is a murky bundle of wet grain, wet grass, rice; it has a smooth mouthfeel. It works, it’s nice, and very earthy like a bière de garde.

Mild aroma, some sweetness but not much. After taste has wheat, while bottle lable had mark up of corn instead of wheat. Ok beer.

drpimento (2210) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Poured a huge foamy, frothy, off white head that mostly disappears and light wisps of frothy lace. Color is a medium to darker amber. Aroma is malty, cereal, and a little hop. Flavor is the same, but more sweet and the flavor shredded wheat. Good body and strong carbonation. Sweet bitter finish. Drinkable. Not bad.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at the Belgan Cafe, Ramsgate.
Clean golden brown colour with a thin white head. Faint pepper and spice with some obvious Belgian yeasty notes. A hint of cardboard initially settling down to some fairly bland bitterness. Nothing special but clean and drinkable all the same.
