UPDATED: JAN 30, 2010 Bottle at home in a tulip. What an experience! Golden pour with a fantastic thick, white head that lasts. Spice and citrus taste with just a bit of warming. Extreme carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 750 ml bottle, tulip glass. Pale yellow with tiny yeast bubbles that form a pristine white head which slowly rises above the glass and above the surface cohesion level without a dop running down the side of the glass. Aroma of yeast, fruit, floral, and a little alcohol. This is a seemingly straight forward brew that really has a lot more to it. Not too sweet and the alcohol notes are powerful but fitting.

I guess this one just didn’t do for me what it apparentl does for others. Not "intense." Its fine, above decent, but not extraordinary.

Pale yelloow with a perfect white foamy head leaving extensive lacings in the glass. The aroma is full of grassy hops and sweet yeast . Spicy complex flavour. Very interesting beer whose mothfeel is improved by leaving the glass alone for a few minutes.

DSG (14784) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 Bottle. Clear golden color, a bit sparkling, with a big head. Aroma is light malts and yeast, fruity and a bit floral. The flavor is sweetish malt, some yeast, some fruitiness, and a bit of hops. Has a medium body, and a mild bitter and alcoholic finish.

BierMeister (4) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2007 does not count
A very satisfing, complex Belgian Ale. Beautiful golden color with a bleached white head. The aroma is very fragrant with citrus notes and green apple. The flavor is unique and fresh with hints of pears and apples with a dry stony finish comparable to a scotch. (due to the alcohol?) Refreshing Belgian Ale!

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2007 My first Belgian ale. Pours a golden color with a huge white head. Head hangs around for a long time. Aroma barley and hops. Taste of citrus and apple.

dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass. Poured a clear golden color with a huge white head. I didn’t particularly care for the carbonation which left me with an overly full fizzy mouth feel. Overall okay but I think this beer is overrated.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2007
UPDATED: APR 28, 2011 Strikingly pretty bear, clear and golden with a very attractive large foamy head. My first tasting in a long time and I’m surprised how much I still like this. Fairly simple but still elegant and a little refined. Sweet malt aroma, and esters very typical of Belgian ales. The flavour is likewise sweet with moderate citric bitterness, the finish is long and pleasant. The firm body is very (and infamously) morish.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2007
UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 Bottle. A very classy belgian pale ale. It poured out very golden and the aroma touches on a fruity pear aroma. Mouthfeel was excellent and almost champagne like. Left a dry finish in a very good way. For me, this beer very much lived up to its reputation. Very refreshing.
