BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2009
On tap @ Happy Gnome. Great establishment, by the way...crystal clear 24 karat pour with a fluffy ivory head that left subtle lacing. Aroma is all Belgian: with candied sugar, spice, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is quite sweet with hints of raisin, Granny Smith, and even banana. Somewhat thin but flavorful.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 21, 2009
A 2009 bottle. The pour was clear and copper with a nice, but thin, creamy white head. Minimal lace. The aroma was malt, light spice and a bit of yeast. The flavor was more complex. Light funk or band-aid over the top of some citrus, malt, spice and yeast. Relatively thin body but in a smooth way, not a cheap way. Pretty dry overall. Good stuff.

Lothore (641) - California, USA - MAY 21, 2009
A- Pours a sunset orange hue with tons of visible carbonation bubbles and a fairly thin, eggshell head. S- Smell is belgian yeast, apple, clove, banana. T- Taste is fairly solid and round, lots of light fruity notes, apple and banana complemented by a big malt backbone. M- Thick with medium to low carbonation. D- Even though im not a huge fan of the style, i enjoyed this one quite a bit. Very balanced and easy to sip on.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Sweet aroma of yeast, spices, pollen, fruit, spices, light citrus, and a hint of Brett. Poured orange/amber/gold in color with a small white head that disappeared quickly. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny, and a few large, particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of yeast, fruit, Brett, pollen, light spices, hops, and pale malts. Medium body. Lightly chalky texture. Soft to average carbonation. Sweet, hop, pollen, and yeast finish is lightly chalky.

GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2009
I dont remember which of the Orlando guys shared this with me, so Ill thank them all for being a kick ass bunch of guys. Malty aroma with dark fruits and some spices. Flavors follow, with a good malt character.

tmoreau (3914) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Enjoyed in a Matilda chalice at Lunar Brewing Co. for the GI Past Meets Present tasting. Poured a clear, amber with an off white head that diminished to a light layer and left some fair lacing. The aroma was that of malt sweetness, yeast, mid-toned fruit, and some floral and spice notes. The flavor combined these with a smooth malt character, a bit of alcohol, and a nice, dry finish.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2010 Unknown vintage bottle thanks to kryptic!
Tepid orange-amber with a fizzy white ring for a head that no coaxing could help. Grainy, floral nose of cherry and honey, some yeast and earth, like creek bed (yes, that is a scent). Medicinal flavor of honey, too much alcohol. Some cheap fizz in the body, alleviates the syrupy texture. Overall pretty weak effort. Most Belgian Ales Ive had are somewhat complex, and at the least, light on their feet and refreshing. This is neither. 62539

06 bottle thanks to styles and Schroppfy we cracked on Orval Appreciation Day. This was stunning. No notes, but way more brett present, strong belgian ale notes of pale malt and lemon, insanely drinkable. Hopefully there are more generous RBs out there sitting on this gem. 859418.

Dedollewaitor (15724) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2009
12fl bottle @ Liva, Kolding. Pours a clear amber with tiny yeast chunks and a creamy white foam and lacings. Nose is fruity, yeasty and spicy. Orange and herbs. Taste is dry and crisp with notes of hops, funk, fruits, medicine, cellar and yeast. Smooth palate. Not as complex as the "almighty" but however .- Very tasty indeed!

Bottle. Full head upon pouring. Flowery and pleasant. Bronze appearance and slightly sweet. A good example of this style.

Christian (13072) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2009
Beautiful amber with a small white head. Aroma is fruity with pineapple, peach, melon and banana, plus some spice and dark sugar. Sweet malty and well hopped flavour with a touch of alcohol. lacking in complexity.
