Pretty basic, although I feel this is under rated. Nice light murky color and a billowing head. Too bad it gave off a weak aroma. Another day, another rating. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2002
Nice orange-red colour with a strong off-white head. Really nice aroma of malt and caramel, which led me to anticipate a similar warming flavour - but it just wasn’t there. The body is light and watery, and the flavour holds barely a hint of what the aroma suggests. No great finish to speak of either. A real disappointment. mpbro (132) - Stanford, California, USA - DEC 27, 2002
(28Dec2002--330mL bottle) Hmm...if you could take an American macrobrew and "Belgianize" it, Bruegel might result. OK, it’s not that bad. Starts with a frothy, styrofoam-like head, coarse bubbles, no lace, and persistent. The beer is cloudy with a reddish tint. Aroma dominated by yeast (bread). Highly effervescent; disturbingly so. If you like to belch, this beer is for you. Otherwise, the flavor is almost non-existent. Sour and zingy, with a bit of wheat and yeast. Without the excess carbonation, it would be a decent ale. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2002
Murky orange in colour. Malty, light caramel aroma. Flavour is slightly sweet and hoppy. Finishes slightly bitter and light. Really simple. Cartoonkhaki (1300) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2002

Beer gushes out of the bottle while opening. Thick, creamy off-white head. Hoppy aroma with citrus. Cloudy appearance. Hoppy, citric flavor with a hint of metal, some yeast and licorice. Drinkingdan (375) - East Norriton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2002
Nice head and very sweet. Yeasty and malty. Make sure it is room temp. other wise it looses all flavor. Radek Kliber (7369) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 24, 2002
Winter touched raspberry joined together with may flowers; it is missing something, aroma of Belgium? Friendly appearance, light dull amber with fast disappearing white head. Yes, this one can wake up your tongue fast, sharp flavour, a bit watery feel. It gave me impression that it was diluted in ratio 2:3. DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 21, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 poured amber with a nice white head, aroma was of nutty/alcoholic tartness, fizzy to say the least, sweet alcohol/subtle cherriness...sparkling loveliness, subtle but spectacular... bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Oily residue in the finish.
Straw color, white head.
Nice hop balance.
On the acidic (phenol) side for a Belgian.
