The ubiquitous "bolleke" of Antwerp. Respectable, but unexciting. In fact, over a few days in Antwerp, I began to find it a bit boring. And I couldn’t help getting reminded of those creamy British keg bitters of the seventies and, more recently, nitrokeg smooth "bitters". Draught, Antwerp, September 2003. beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2005
On tap at Firkin’s, Libertyville, IL. Fresh keg. Clear amber ale having a long-lasting large white head with good lacing. Fruity and sweet malt aromas. Medium bodied that starts with sweet malt and toffee flavors. Finishes with light malt aftertaste. No discernable hop or bitterness. This is a good drinkable session beer.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 VEry good, after a while it is a normal beer, but at the beginning, it is very sweet and strong, not tiring, but not as crafty as some others. I like it. Yes. SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 3, 2005
33 ml bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. Pours a beautiful rosy-amber color with a small beige head. Aroma is dusty-toasty malts, with a dry yeastiness and herbal notes. Flavor is dry and bitter-sweet with floral hops and a slight spicy yeast. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. This would be a good one with food, not bad as a European session ale as well.

Dark amber colour, rather small head, malty aroma. Palate is herby yet a smouth taste with a light bitter finish. Easy drinkable beer.

Pours light chestnut brown. Fruity sour aroma, nutty flavour without the expected butteryness. Okay-ish. ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2005
On tap at The Globe. Poured a murky copper. Mild fruits on the nose. Raisans and prunes in what was a somewhat muted flavor to me. Had a bit of a funky mild sourness to it. pootzboy (1760) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2005
Bottled: poured into a De Konninick goblet...reveals a amber-brown, lightly clouded ale. Good cap retention and good lacing on the glass. Moderately carbonated.
To the nose we get a ripe fruit (plumbs?) smell mingling with caramel, spices and some wet hay...but all reletivley understated...excellent nose. Medium-light body, creamy mouthfeel. Sweetish toffee-like malts mingle with fruity tastes from the yeast and some mild bittering in the finish from the hop mix. This is a light, but flavorful Belgian ale...very,very drinkable...I wish it were available here all year.

Dark amber, caramel head, dark robust flavour. Good balance of malt and hops, mute creamy palate. Slightly fruity. Has tht stewed pear and apple flavour that the triple has but more subtle.
