Indra (2670) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 1, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 Aroma is very distinctively Belgian, there's some soft but citric fruitiness, yeast, flowers, and a slightly sharp woodiness. Color is a glowing golden amber, with a nice frothy head and incredible lacing. Flavor sees some light sourness and acidity, mixed with some wheat-malt flavors, some green grape and apple, and a faint but insistent sweetness. The body is light, but in a soft, creamy way that gives a wonderful texture to all these flavors. Aftertaste has a bit of yeast, some herbal, spicy hop, juicy citrus and a slight mustiness. I didn't get the metallic parts that some other raters seem to have. For such a 'simple' beer, this is very satisfying on many levels.

Aroma of íOffí-brand mosquito repellant, flavor to suggest a particular brand of urinal hockey pucks that Iíve encountered (not that Iíve ever tasted one). Some bitterness, and some alcohol peeping through, but overall nice--despite the flavor comparisons it suggested. (on tap, Lowlander, Drury Lane, London)

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2004 Nice foamy head which lasts, soft spice and hop aroma, smooth body, quite light, mellow and easy to drink, lacks a bit of bite. My mum reckoned it smelt a bit like blue cheese, i sort of agreed.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2002
I hate that Ohio has a ban on beer stronger than 8% by weight. However, this is an excellent way to get my Belgian beer fix. Nice golden color with a fine thin head. Light, slightly sweet taste with a very mild bitter hops flavor. Kind of reminds me of Sweet-Tarts the way it combines a sweet fruity flavor with mild bitterness. Mildly acidic/metallic aftertaste though. All around a very good Belgian ale.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2002
High noon sunshine yellow with a translucent yeast body. Huge sticky bright white head with an abdunance of lace. Aromas of fresh lemons and a sort of basement-like mustiness. Very VERY tart and somewhat chalky. Citrus and yeast flavors abound.

MartinT (8218) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2004 Creamy feel with hay (wheat?) and citrus acidity...Subdued green hop bite and meringue lather the tongue and soothe the mind...Very good for what it aims to be, a stellar and nourishing refreshment...

JMerritt (1850) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Light amber in color with a thick, white head. Lots of yeast and sediment hangs eerily throughout, reminding me of the albumen strands and flakes that suspend in the boiling water when you poach eggs. Sweet aroma, hints of green grape(?). Very pleasant flavor, starts mildly sweet, gradually gets just a hair sweeter, and is finished with a wheat flavor. Great! Well worth the money.

I read somewhere that this was the beerworlda answer to Viagra, but I had no reaktion at all. Nothing special in my book.

This is sort of sour and relatively light for a Belgian (I guess thatís why itís called a íSingelí). It IS a bit wine cooler-ish, as odd as that seems. A bit too fizzy, I think. Once upon a time, I used to like this beer, but now Iíve tasted better.
