A huge rocky head forms over the intensly carbonated beer. The aroma is yeasty, fruity and the same goes for the taste. Very nicely balanced and dangerously drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2007 The duvel; the classic huge-headed bready ale. Very refreshing with citrus and coriander notes in the aroma. Sharp, highly carbonated body. This is a great, consistent ale.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 Very light translucent golden yellow in color. Huge lasting head with big bubbles, nice lacing, and a lot of carbonation. Flavor is great. Sweet and some citrus flavor. Really good and easy to drink

Probablly the best ale I’ve come across. A beautiful, golden brew with an agressive head. A nose of citrus and spice, and the palate is a complex blend of citrusy lemon, a bit of new grass, a splash of cinnamon, and some spring fruits, gliding smoothly with a velvety alcohol blanket.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2007
(Bottle) Pours Clear yellow/golden with a big white head. Wet stone and nutmeg , some green herbs, green leafs and nettles. Flowery hops in aroma. Lemon. Some malt. Sweet pears and green apples, boiled green vegetables. Malty, fruity flavour with herbish tones. Fizzy carbonation. Light bread crust. Sourish touch. It has been said before, but a really unique belgian beer.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with a nice white head. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Flavour is sweet with some spices. Nice hoppy dry finish. Dry aftertaste.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Pale and clear golden drink - Head looks like an ice cream sundae. The brew is sweet and draws most of its flavors from a large group of fruits - Some pear and fig are detected - Maybe some softer hints of nanners, too. Somewhat thin bodied but malty enough to compensate. Zinngy hops that taste great. Looks more carbonated than it really is. Nice belgian ale.

Huge white lasting head, great appearance. Sweet aroma with balanced, complex flavor of fruit, pear or apple. Excellent.

750. Beer is clear, light-hued gold. Head is initially massive, rocky and white. Diminishes into a sticky, high, stubborn curtain of lacing. Mostly lasting.<P> Aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with light notes of chamomile, citrus zest, trace of pine; Yeasty with a light note of basement; Light note of alcohol, grains of paradise, candy sugar.<P> The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic with a long, warmish, lightly bittersweet finish.<P> The body is medium, the texture is velvety, the carbonation is fizzy.<P> I know this is no brain-buster, but it’s been a a favorite session beer of mine for the last couple of years and I still like it. It’s simple. easy and tasty.

Draft/Bottle/Can. This seems like the Budvar of Belgium. Not a bad bier, but nothing special. A good pub bier but nothing I would work hard to find.
