mullet2007 (209) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 18, 2008
Pours a nice golden straw colour with a thick solid white head that lasts a very long time and leaves wonderful lacing. Nose is spicy and clovey. The beer itself is very very dry. There is a nice bit of hop bitterness present. There might be a hint of banana at some point, but mostly spices. There is some malt in there, and that is nice, but not terribly strong. It is carbonated quite nicely, and is fairly light in the mouth, but not watery, just light.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle from Belgian Belly, Chorlton. Looks great - attractive pale gold with large white head that settles down and lasts. Fresh floral and yeast aroma with a punch of alcohol. Taste is citrus and yeast with an lovely dry finish. However, all the excellent qualities are let down by a painfully thin body that completely unbalances this otherwise sound ale.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 2, 2008
Bottle, from Beer Merchants. Thanks Phil! Warm blond, nice persistent white bubbles. Lovely minty and warm hay hop nose, little touch of vanilla. Gentle nettle bitterness blended beautifully with lightly sweet toasty malt. Subtle strawberry finish. Such a nice happy summery beer.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Very low key Belgian. Aroma is a little malty with a touch of sharpness from the yeast. Pours a nice golden color with about two fingers worth of fluffy white head. Flavor is very smooth, but a litle nondescript. This is an easy drinking nice Belgian beer.

3.3
Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle 33cl. Pours a murky golden/yellow colour with a small head and loads of carbonation. Smell is very sour, but nice. Also some fruits there like lime and apple. Taste is also sour and has some good fruityness there balanced well with the sourness.

3.3
markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Pours a deep gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is honey and apple, as is the flavor. The finish is malt and honey sweetness with a twinge of bitter and some cane sugar.

TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy golden amber, with a thin off white head.Nose of honey and belgian yeast. Quite carbonated, with a little bit of lager flavor to it. Served a bit on the cold side, waiting for a bit of a cool down to see if it opens a bit. Somewhat mild up front, with most of the flavor on the back end. Getting more of the yeast notes as it warms. Very drinkable, albeit on the mild side, but there are no offensive flavors here, nor is there anything super spectacular than stands out. But that’s what makes this a good beer, really enjoying the finish. This is one of those beers that is a perfect introductory beer for your non belgian beer friends
