11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours amber with a small head, and chunks of yeast in it. Aroma of spicy yeast, a little sourness, some light malts and sweetness, and a little hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent Belgian beer, but I sort of wonder if the bottle was bad. Yves (3134) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2012
Hazy light brown coloured beer with large diminishing brownish head and medium carbonation. Spicy hopped and malty aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sour sweet spicy with some bitter hints. Nice one! PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle at The Stumbling Monk in Seattle. Pours amber with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is moderately spicy with a light malt sweetness. Flavor is a balanced spiciness that is nonetheless a little off-putting due to it’s none-beer nature. medium body. Would have been a bit better with a hefty malt wallop! Not nearly as good as the Twaalf :( Barrelbelly (751) - BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2012
Light brown with almost no head. Maly sour aroma and taste. Low on carbonation and a sweet candy aftertaste tderoeck (10195) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2012

Note: GUSHER ALERT!
Pretty cloudy muddy red brown beer, no head, some bit and smaller chunks floating around. Aroma: little sweet, some spices, chocolate, sour berries. MF: low carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty sweet start, fruity touches, sweet malts, little meaty. Aftertaste: ripe to rotten fruits, red berries, some dark chocolate. In all, not quite as bad as I had suspected.
Draught. Poured burnt sienna with a white head that disappeared quickly. Tastes of dark cherry and other crisp dark druits. Bit tart, especially on the finish. Not bad, but very one note. Better on draft than in the bottle. bhensonb (15759) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle at 6.8% from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours very hazy dark copper with small dark chunks. Frothy beige head. There’s an extremely strong evergreen, perhaps spruce, aroma. Full bodied and very frothy. There’s a sour component, lots of fruit, and still evergreen. Yeast/spice. Probably more stuff, but it’s all complexly intermingled. Certainly more dry than not. Very tasty, if a bit challenging. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2012

Flavor is skunky yeast, pine sap, medium malt and light hops/bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation. bottleforager (3208) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Certainly not the best example from ’T Gaverhopke but I snagged in for $1.99 on closeout. The nose is slightly sweet, sour and a touch of frozen horse manure. The taste is flat but has a complexity similar to the nose... sweet,sour fruit ,cinnamon,barnyard... it like you took a really good beer and added a liberal splash of bath water...
