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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma of malts and hops along with spices. Flavour the same, but without spices. Also some grassy and earthy hints in the flavour. Different brew, but still very boring and not too pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear copper colour. Belgian yeast aroma, weak but spicy. The same goes for the flavour along with some fruity esters.

Between light brown and golden amber with creamy white head. Sweet soapy smell also spicy leafy hints in there. Tastes a bit bitter with a coppery finish.
