arjoseph (639) - 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 (2249) - 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.

oh6gdx (20334) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2006
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.

MiP (13599) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle. Clear copper colour. Belgian yeast aroma, weak but spicy. The same goes for the flavour along with some fruity esters.

SHIG (3587) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 11, 2006
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.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2006
An orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is quite spicy on a sweet malty background, while the flavor is sweet malty with a light note of yeast. Average.

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2006
Bottled, alc. 4.5% [BB 02/2007]. Light copper brown, small head. Aroma has banana (and other sweet fruits) and hay. Light palate, light hoppy flavor, metallic "non-alco" notes. Quite boring - like Belgian ale without flavors - as low ABV indicates.

ogivlado (5723) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 12, 2006
Bottled(250ml). -drinkable but quite ordinary brew with nothing much to be said, slight fruity aroma with floral hoppy notes, soft bitter finish

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2005
dark amber colour, average and diminishing white head. Some malty aroma, little bit herby. Full palate, with a light bitter finish.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2005
(Bottle, Pelgrims, Aarschot) Clear dark amber colour, amberish too fast disappearing head. Hoppy aroma, alcohol, dark fruits, guar, earth, grass. Taste is monotomous milt sweet, aftertaste more bitter. Lacks complexity.
