rane (1060) - Nibe, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2006
Not the most interesting belgian beer. Pale golden colour with huge head. Not very much aroma. yeast. Taste yeast but not very complex.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Very good beer. Pours a golden color with a HUGE white head. Tastes very yeasty, almost wheaty with dry alcohol finish. Hops are almost undetectable. A very tasty beer, but not as complex as I’d like.

jb (3211) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Not a grand style of belgian. Too simplistic. Pours pale yellow with a thick white head with nice retention. Mostly yeast in the nose along with banana. Very carbonated, but doesn’t interfere with the palate. Palate is oh so dry with an iron sort of taste and hops. Finish remains dry. No hint of alcohol anywhere even with the 8.5% of it.

KoenRamone (4) - Bocholt, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2006 does not count
bottle, nice head, very much CO2, it explodes on your tounge. Very delicate taste, hoppy, a little too sweet, less bitter.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Bottle best before 09/2008. Poured a clear golden color with a tall, frothy, pure white head that left big chunky lacing in the glass. The aroma was of spices, citrus, and maybe a hint of banana. The flavor followed the same with spices, light citrus and fruits. Medium body, dry, but smooth. A good one to have around.

4.2
Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Bottle. Golden color, ample white head. This beer had an aroma of malt, mild spice and yeast. A clean flavor and finish. Good light drinking ale.

4.3
blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2006
A gorgeous pour, huge lasting creamy head atop clear golden liquid. This beer is extremely fragrant. Aromas of flowery hops and some fruity citrus, perhaps orange. A very smooth beer considering the high alcohol content. Hints of pear or apple appear before a finishing dryness.

4.6
kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 Very good beer. Poured from bomber into oversized wine glass. Probably the best appearance I’ve ever seen. Started out clear golden with a thick white pillowy head with excellent lacing. As the bottle progressed, the appearance turned more hazy amber, still with the same head. Fruity aroma was prevalent from the beginning. Taste seemed a mixture of the fruit and also a hint of spice, possibly clove. The 8.5% alcohol was very discreet; present but not tasted. A great finish topped off a very pleasant drinking experience.
