I don’t mind saying that I’m extremely disappointed with this beer. This is the first belgian that I’ve had that I won’t ever drink again. I compare this one to a crappy american macrobrew. I don’t recommend this one at all.

RonS (1) - Petersburg, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2006 does not count
750 ml bottle poured with a nice long lasting white head. Fine lace. Spicy, malty, earthy, yeast and citrus aroma with a complex flavor with a slight alcohol finish. Very refreshing and suprisingly drinkable for the ABV.

johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2006
Golden and poured with a big head that took some time to dissapear.Slight bitterness and a strong presence of alcohol as you would expect.Slightly acidic but all round an impressive well balanced strong ale.

Beerdedone (3452) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle first Belgian sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma of spices, citrus, yeast. Flavor is smooth, citrus, yeast, and sweet.

vyvvy (6719) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2006
Aroma has a lot - pepper, earthy, light fruits, dough, spices and more. Pours light gold with a light looking white head that stays around for a while. Medium / full bodied beer with a medium carbonation. Taste is peppery with nice rich malts. The finish has lots of earthiness from the yeast and a spicy kick. Some of the alcohol lets itself be shown on the finish. Wonderful beer that goes down way too easy for ABV.

3.7
BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2006
This rating is way overdue. On tap at Cafeke in Uden. Pale yellowish pour, with a slight haze and big fluffy white head. Estery, fruity aroma with a tinge of yeast. Flavor is spicy, strong, complex with a fruity edge. Medium bodied with a spicy alcohol flavor to the very end. Great.

harmfuldrunk (288) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2006 hazey light golden with nice white head, bubbly, foamy, very nice aroma, a bit dry, the hops help, a good beer i forgot how good it was.

TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours a lightly hazy golden with an average foamy lacing and sustaining head. Aroma of citrus, banana, yeast and Belgian spices. First thing with the flavor was the carbonation in this one, very bubbly on the tongue. Flavor is also very citrusy, with some more of that distinct yeast and some spices. I can also pick up the Pilsner malts that the Commercial Description state. Actually the flavor kind of reminds me of a Belgian spiced Pilsner if there is a such a thing. Still torn as to if the carbonation makes me like the palate more or less...I’ll give it a 4 and go on the "more" side of things.

3.1
Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle. 750ml. Pours a hazy yellow with a nice head from the fairly high carbonation. Grass and yeast on the nose. Sour, citric and spicy flavors predominate. This was fine for a refreshing drink, however, this reminded me of champagne. Slightly sweet, somewhat bitter, crisp, and lots of bubbles. I’m just not a big fan of the bubbily. I’d have it again at my next wedding. :-)

2.8
mabjork (693) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottled. Rich bubbly white head. Pale golden in colourIt has an alcoholic and yeasty aroma. The flavour is mostly alcoholic but has a citric sting with malt and hops.
