duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2006
Bottlle. Hazy gold amber. Yeasty aroma, which is quite flowery. Palate is quite yeasty, citric, with some light (and surprising) berry fruit notes, lots of sharp yeast character, with the typical Belgian carbonation. Not bad, quite inetersting in fact, yet its missing that extra something, that would make it very good. Nice bitterness in the finish though. thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2006
Pours pale and hazy yellow with good bubbly head. Aroma of almonds, banana, plums and cherries (and wheat). Quite spritzy and vinious. The taste is sweet then turns slightly fruity with a acidic alcohol punch before finishing sweet again. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
Hazy golden ale featuring a small white head that swiftly resumes to a sparse white cover. Pointy honey nose is strong, betraying a good amount of residual sugars. It’s a tart type of honey flavors that show up, not unlike buckwheat ints its pungent and spicy sharpness, but clearly, the tartness emanates from the yeast, which feels a bit faulty. Clovey phenols.. It sure does not fail at rendering a belgian traditional aroma, but it heads further, making the faint biscuitiness rather floury and a bit like sourdough, that’s the good part, but also consideraly sulfuric which is less pleasant and potentially due to a starting autolysis issue. The mellow herbal hops mostly serve a support purpose though they impart a vegetal touch as well paired with the delicate pils malts. Palate confers more of the same types of flavors, supported by a sweet, light-medium body with soft, mostly light carbonation for a belgian. The alcohol is felt, especially toward the finish, which is heating to say the least and with more honey pills peaks. High alcohols, acetone fusels also join the melting pot, though their levels remain tolerable, possibly because ethanol is there in sufficient quantity. Less fruity than expected globally, it’s like the esters derived toward other chemicals. Not as clean as it could be. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Hazy pale golden colour with huge creamy white head. Alcohol, chemicals and fruits in aroma. Flavour is yeasty, fruity and some alcohol. Without the bottom yeasts it was full of alcohol, so the yeast takes the biting alcohol away a bit. Quite similar to the other Bon Secours rated so far. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2006
Bottled. Golden color with creamy head.
Alcohol, acetone, some fruitiness and raspberry in the aroma. The flavor is sweetish with disturbing hot alcohol, raspberry, cherry, cranberry and sticky toffee maltiness. I used to like the Bon Secours range but now these beers taste a way too solvent.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a comically massiv--but diminishing--white head. The aroma of tart green apples is almost neck-snapping from this beer; it really sent a shudder down my spine. Medium body, no shortage of fizz. The taste is well summed by Noize: bittersweet, hint of spice at the end, some yeast forward. Not a bit of the troublesome green apple quick step nose. Great beer. NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2006
Yellow, golden coloured. Hoppy aroma and a bit yeasty. Bittersweet taste, a bit spicy. Nice brew. Perfect off the tap on a sunny day. caesar (7153) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2006
Tap, Dour. Hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of some hop, bit spicy, some malt and grain. Spicy taste, bit dry, moderately bitter, bit sweet. Decent beer. FrankJohansen (3622) - Sabro, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour with a huge white mostly lasting head. Aroma and taste of hops, malts and balanced spices. Lasting finish. Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2006
Clear yellow coloured, a large white head and a lot of carbonation. Herbal yeasty aroma, some hints of fruits (citrus) and grasses. Full palate, nice body. Finish is light bitter with a clear alcoholic touch ending a little more dryer. Overall a nice one.
