yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing off-white head. Light spiced aroma, coriander and perhaps cloves. Flavour is sweet and smooth with a light coriander note. Light spiced and medium dry finish.

Ungstrup (29847) - 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.

Papsoe (25083) - 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

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
oh6gdx (20902) - 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.

omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2002
Strange beer. This was the first ever Belgian ale I tried, and one of the beers that got me interested in beer in the first place. Samplin it again several thousands beers later I goit awfully disappointed. Bronze colour. Some grape aroma. Sweet and one dimensional. Plain boring.

madmitch76 (16111) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2009
18th May 2008. Amber ale. Perfectly drinkable but characterless. Dry finish with a faint hint of banana.

2.9
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
MiP (13798) - 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.

2.3
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
TBone (12992) - 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.

1.6
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 7/20
Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2001
Only Interbrew could screw up a Belgian ale to this degree. Bland, forgettable, paltry, insignificant. Good-bye.
