yespr (48207) - Copenhagen O, - FEB 24, 2012
75 cL bottle. Pours flat hazy brown with no real head. Mild citric and toasted malt aroma. Orange fruity to citric flavoured, flat malty, seems vague oxidised. Light breadish and citric finish.

sulawang (1202) - - DEC 18, 2016
Visual: Composite cork with a twisty steel cap top, quality hefty bottle. Pours clear light copper brown with smallish head, thick fine-bubbled retention, lots of clustered streams.

Nose: lemon tea, thick dense syrupy liquid lager barley malt. (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: micro-fizzy-tingly CO2 crisp

Mid-palate: malt liquor, long (lvl-6-sweetness), tangy barley malt, hints of lemon tea

Finish: slight bitter makrut lime peel, persistent malted barley, gag reflex

Summary: I’m not digging this Belgian - way to malt liquor-ish heavy and an unclean dull citrus component. Not exactly refreshing either. Not my type of beer at all. Decent quality (texture, packaging, depth) but the flavour isn’t right for me.

Alengrin (5788) - BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2014
Lime-flavoured specialty ale with old-fashioned label. Tasted in 2005, I don’t know if this still exists. Off-white head on an amber coloured beer of which the aroma combines a nutty and caramelly maltiness of a medium-dark base beer with the fresh, exotic, citrussy sourishness of the lime juice, through which a soft fruity yeastiness also emerges. Taste is likewise, yeasty fruitiness, nutty maltiness and lemony freshness. I liked this for its originality, more so than most of the other taste experiments of Ecaussinnes.

reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
Poured hazy golden-orange color with big off-white head with nice retention and settling to a fine lace. Aromas of caramel and yeast. Taste is sweet with a light hoppy spicy finish. Nice carbonation and medium body. A respectable Dubbel style ale.

manuchampions (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2011
Beer not listed on brewery website. I believe it is different than the brewery’s other product archiduc di nivelles since it has only 6.2% alc versus the 7.0 listed for that beer. 750ml bottle with caged cork bought at 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours an orangey gold with thick off white head that lingers at a half inch. Aroma is sweet malt , yeast, slightly bready. Taste is exceedingly sweet, almost sickly with a candy quality (like a Pez was mixed in). That bombs out the other flavours almost entirely. Once the sugars subside there is a trace of cereal malt near the end, but the sweetness sticks around relentlessly. Strangely boozy for a 6.2% beer. A beer to get teenage Belgian girls drunk with (don’t do it, it’s illegal).

sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2010
(Bottled, 0.75l, "Archiduc Bière Belge", 6.2% ABV) Clear amber (but tons of yeast in the bottle!) with a smallish, firm head. Lime, yeast, banana, witbierish spices in the nose. Lots of caramely malt and lime with Belgian yeast, some sourness, and coriander-gingery spiciness. Medium to full body, soft and medium CO2. I’m not a huge fan of lime-flavored beers, but this was quite refreshing and tasty. 5446

[email protected]örntasting (as Archiduc Biere [email protected] %). Hazy ambery colour with mediumsized off-white creamy head. Aroma is barnyard, some slight fruity and spicy notes, wood and also alcohol. Flavour is citrus fruits, wood, yeast and quite spicy as well.

omhper (25834) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2010
Bottled (as Archiduc Bière Belge, 6.2%) Cloudy amber, rich head. Orvallish bready nose. Dry and fruity, medium bodied with dense, solid mouthfeel. fruity and sweaty with bitter orangeand pine needles. Complex and intriguing. Good!

bierkoning (13747) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2008
Corked bottle. Amber color. Pepper, ginger and marmalade in the strong aroma. Sugary sweet flavor with orange marmalade and ginger. Sticky mouthfeel, liquor-like, though not especially alcoholic. Too sweet to be really good.
