JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2003
(I can understand that this is exported under the name 'single'. But the age-old original name, dating already from the Verlinden brewery at Brasschaat is STIMULO) Pale yellow. Thick white head, collapsing. Fresh, herbal, grassy nose, a bit hoppy. I cannot smell the maize (joke). Sharper, spicey taste. Hint of mustard seed? Fruity taste likesome exotic fruit: papaya, cactus-fig,... Rather well-bodied for such a light beer. Beautiful traditional ale.Was one of the first, and last, beers calling itself "Trappist", before this became reserved for the Trappist monasteries. I still think it has Trappist-quality.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 12, 2003
This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium head and some slight lacing on the glass. The aroma is very spicy and filled with citrus hints. The taste is very smooth for having such a strong aroma. The spices also come out in the taste. Not a bad beer, but very spicy.

omhper (22896) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy golden appearance. Acidic, citric nose. Fruity, and slight less malty than Witkap Pater Tripel. Fresh lactic acid finish.

rauchbier (3765) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Hazy gold, good rocky white head and moderate condition. Grapefruit, apple and yeast aromas, slightly apple tart and corky flavours and a dry green apple finish.

Nate (3998) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Very sweet, pleasing aroma - cotton candy and alcohol. Floral and pear notes, light fruity hops and honey. Golden honey color with floating sediment (chunky, not like cloudy wheat beer). White foamy lacing head. Low-medium carb and medium watery body. Overlying tartness - like white wine with sweet notes, giving it a dry feel. Taste of honey and little hops bitterness. Sediment imparts an earthy/yeasty flavor and peppery tones. Last pour of sediment gave more yeasty/citrusy quality. I like dubbel and tripel styles better, but this was pretty good.

RobBestwick (797) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2003
yeasty/orangey nose, cloudy amber hue with a good white head, yeasty with a hoppy bite, nice texture, decent lacing, good stuff.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Bottle, obtained in trade with JBrus. Hazy golden, nice lasting and clinging head. A nice, unique Belgian single. Complex mixture of citrus fruits, peaches, yeastiness, white wine. Effervescent and sweet. A nice brew!

Andrew196 (1331) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Semi-cloudy yellow in color, almost like a white wine. It had a couple fish flake sized flakes of sediment. Tiny, yet well defined bubbles made a thin head. Aroma of yeast and coriander. Mouthfeel was very crisp. Flavor was pretty thin after an initial blast of citrus, yeast, banana, and grape. Pretty good, nothing special though

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2003 Took one sip of of skortilas beer when he wasn't looking (yeah you didn't know that huh skortila... ;-)). Cloudy yellow coloured, quite sour flavour. Nothing special. Re-rate: Had a complete bottle this time, and i was a lot better than the first time.

skortila (5132) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2003
My bottle said 'Stimulo'. Citrus aroma. Nice full head, cloudy yellow coloured. Taste is sweet and sour, perhaps some yeast. Citrusfruits. Sour palate. Benefit of the doubt.
