DuffMan (10928) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2008
Hazy brassy gold with a big lively white head. Aromas of geraniums and straw and spices. Sweet aroma leads into a sweet malty palate. Perfumey herbal character with underlying honey sweetness. Better than I anticipated quite frankly but not one I would return to.

presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2008
Not too much different from the standard 8% Augustijn. A darker gold colour. Minimal head. Rough honey scent. Flavour rough honey, flowers and alcohol with a bit of a bitter rough finish.

Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Poured a nice hazy golden color with a big white head Aroma was really spicey, and sweet. Flavor wasnt nearly as spicey as aroma, really sweet candy sugar. Covered up the alcohol very well.

TEJA (3388) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2008
Sparkling, full yellow colour. Aroma is realy interesting with horse and smell of fresh potatoes going bad. Taste is full bodied with sweetness and typical belgian fruit and yeast tones.

Borresteijn (7655) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle @ Café Gollem. Golden colour, big white head. Aroma of sour apples, malts, yeast. Flavour is fruity, malty and some yeast, lots of carbonation. Not too good.

HughConway (831) - Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Draft. Pale, thick white head not highly laced. Fruit aroma, sparkle and alcohol in mouth

janubio (992) - SPAIN - JUL 17, 2008
330 ml bottle. Pale golden colour, a good white head, always keeps a lace on the surface. Champagne like aroma, with spices and lemony hints, some apple too. In mouth is sparkling, remember me of champagne but also of sherry wine, apples, lemon and spices. Dry after taste. I wouldn’t matter to try another one any other day.

MiP (16082) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle, 9% at ÅBF08. Clear golden colour. Small white head. Sweet, grainy flavour. The alcohol is not that distinct.

Yves (3208) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2008
Blond coloured beer with medium carbonation and medium white head. Hoppy + spicy aroma. Full palate little sparkless. Finish is spicy, a little herby and dry.
