TaxiDriver (1779) - Stadland, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle. The smell of oranges and yeast. Red body, a little off-white head, which disappears nearly fully. It startet a little bit bitter and endet sour, medium duration. The body is between light and medium, dry and with some carbonation.

Defreni (3286) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2008
Fad. Ekstrem flot skumkrone på en mørk ravfarvet øl. Klar og filtreret udmærket maltbase, men bare ikke så meget mere, hvilket er en skam når man har 9% at lege med.

2.4
Tranquillity (2484) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle. Not much aroma. Don’t (!!!!) pour the yeast in unless you like the taste of vodka mixed with beer. Raisin aroma. A bit raisiny colour as well. Taste a bit too much of alcohol, but some maltyness and watermelon slips through.

FatPhil (16930) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 20, 2008
330ml bottle, shared by Tranquillity. Very dark red, healthy tight head. Caramel sweet aroma. Sweet malty caramel taste, smooth and spicy. Slight yeasty taste, and more yeast makes it more astringent in the mouth and feel more alcoholic. Creamy and fruity - melon and some apple - and the alcohol is mostly well hidden. Not much finish, alas.

3.7
Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 9, 2008
Líquido avermelhado intenso, creme interessante, mas pouco consistente. Aroma e paladar de frutas vermelhas, com leve presença de lúpulo.

3.6
DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle from La Primus, Brussels. Malty, spicy, sweet nose. Pours a brown and red beer. Malty sweet taste of dry fruits. Not bad and went nicely with a steak.

3.7
TrefwoordPunk (1289) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark amber with a medium but fading off-white head and a thin aroma that is both sweet (caramel, strawberries, brown sugar) and spicey while some yeast can be noted too. Taste is mainly spicey and a tad sweet (candy sugar) and bitter. Nice hoppy finish and almost no alcohol to be noted (while this is 8,5%) A nice original belgian ale, I like it, even though I drank it a bit too cold.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Gold brown color with minimal head. Aroma was faint, but perhaps because the beer was served to me icey cold. As the glass warmed I did notice a hint of something spicey, maybe chili. The flavor and aftertaste were surpringly non-alcoholic for such a strong beer. The entire glass washed down soomthly with little to know bitterness. I don’t know how the Belgian’s do it with this strong that seemingly hide the alcohol. Drink with caution, but definitely drink. Cheers

Great Beer! The light foam sparkles with aroma and the flavor is to die for. Drank this on the Grand Place in Brussels. Absolutely perfect with Carbonnade.

3.4
toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2007
Red-brown beer with good beige foam. Aroma is soft malty and has hints of fruits, red berries and some caramel. Taste is spicy, and fruity. it has touches of nuts and grain, it ends with an interesting bitter touche.
