Bottle at RBSG 2006. Rusty amber. Aroma is flowery and yeasty. Taste amps up on the floral notes and yeast with bigger fruit coming through and sweeter malts. Body is bubbly and medium-full overall. Finishes sweeter with more flowery flavors, yeast and sweet malts. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2006
12 oz bottle, 2006 RBSG. Pours a cloudy orangish gold color under a small film of a head. Aroma is fruity with some caramel sweetness and light yeast. Flavor is fruity with a semi dry crisp finish and light yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with alot of fizzy carbonation. Overall, not very distinct in any way. Just sort of a generic Belgian Strong, though after seeing the ABV on this I will say that the alcohol was well hidden. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Sampled at RBSG06. Cloudy orange color with a thin white head. Aroma of very light caramel. Very light caramel flavor, but somewhat watery. reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer. I see a lot of people describing a hazy appearance, but mine is very much clear. First time with this beer, so unsure if this is good or bad? Lovely orange colour with moderate white head. Aroma is rich and spicy - a punch to the nose. Tastes of a bag of dried fruit trail mix - raisins, dates, apricots and bananas. Spicy rum finish to please the belly. Pleasantly surprised by this one. A keeper indeed. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2006
Bottle. Hazy orange-brown colour. Nose is peppery and shows orangey citrus fruit. Fairly sweet, with some nuts and caramel, with an interesting, almost toasted flavour. Finish, is warming, with some peppery alcohol and some citric bitterness. This was quite nice and well balanced for its strength.

Bottle (Utobeer): Lovely spices and fruits in the nose. Cloudy orange with a large, lasting white head. Sweet, nutty start with some lovely citric notes. Spices (coriander, clove, etc) in the finish. Quite moreish and refreshing. TBone (18084) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2006
Bottled (BB 01/2008)sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2006
Hazy nut brown color, small creamy tan head. Fruity aroma (apricot). Medium to full bodied. Sweet fruity flavor: kandy sugar and apricot. In the finish some hops and alcohol make the flavor more bitter. I would think this as Dutch-style Belgian ale.
(Bottled) Muddy brown color with a medium, very lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, figs and lots of berries. Very fruity, sweetish berry flavor with quite evident, bitter hopping and a long, spicy, caramel-malty finish. Medium to full-bodied, slightly syrupy palate with hints of alcohol and low carbonation. A very enjoyable, strong and balanced dessert ale with some scotch ale character. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2005
Bottled. Deep hazy amber coloured. Very spicy aroma (mainly coriander) with some fruitiness and yeastiness. Sweet, fruity and spicy flavour with a dry and quite hoppy finish. Smooth and well balanced. Trappistenbier (52) - BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2005
Halleschelle is a great housebeer from picobrewery Alvinne, located in Ingelmunster. This beer is a command from Dominiek, one of the two owners of beerpub Pado at Tielt. Orange hazy aprearance with a great creamy longlasting head. It has bottle refermentation and in 8.5 vol% strong. Very coriander flavored, and this in "perfect" balance with the citirc hops that are used. Hence the very parfumy aroma.It’s a very dense beer with a muddy texture. it’s definite one of the best housebeers available here in Belgium !!!
