PorterPounder (7766) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
Cloudy, light golden pour with a fizzy white head. Perfumy, flowery aroma with a buttery finish. Smooth tasting, with some sweet elements - cotton candy perhaps? Aftertaste has a bit of licorice in it. Yeast is evident, but kept at bay, carbonation a tad on the heavy side. Good, solid drinkable Belgian.

Aurelius (5230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
Yeasty, floral, cakey, somewhat chemical aroma. Light, pale wheaty color, fairly even suspension with some larger chunks. Kinda cool label. Tart, moderately sweet, honey notes, sweet-tart candy over sharp alcohol bitterness. Good body, fairly quick finish is malty with residual fruit quality. Some silly putty phenols left on the lips.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Very clear dark yellow/golden color, effervescent with small white bubbles, yeast was in medium size chunks when sediment disturbed... aroma was slightly sweet, low caramel, raw honey/wild flowers... taste was slightly solventy from the high alcohol, hops were very mellowed (old bottle), hops and German-style maltiness both present (unique for a Belgian beer: cara-vienne malt?) but came across separately and not well blended... beer seemed somewhat out of style for a Golden Ale (as it is claimed to be), which is why I gave it a low score in the overall category.

hopscotch (11012) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Bottle... Hazy, straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is of butterscotch, spice, pear and vanilla. Well-balanced flavor. The high ABV is not overbearing, but is definitely there. Nice hop kick. Some notes of grapefruit, pear, apple, orange blossom honey and butterscotch in the flavor. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet finish. Thanks to jbrus for the bottle of this fine brew!

SilkTork (5694) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. BBE Feb 2005. A Belgian Blonde. Big head that tastes quite creamy, but eventually vanishes. Medium body that vanishes in the mouth. Sweet up front but with a soft and pleasant fresh bitterness in the finish. A subtle and tasty beer with character that is very enjoyable. Little hints of flavours move around in the mouth. Very good.

obxdude10 (2307) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Light golden in color, a bit of haze in the appearance, nice fluffly white head, pilsener-like nose with hops in the aroma countered with a bit of sweet maltiness, slight hops in the flavor, balance was great, a bit dry in the finish

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Cloudy and golden with a frothy white head. Saaz in the nose for sure and some peach. Spicy, gets a little sweet and finishes dry.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - NOV 11, 2003
Pours golden yellow with a thick dissipating white head. It has a hoppy Saaz aroma and a mild banana, fruity flavor. Finishes moderately alcoholic and is well carbonated. A good beer.

Golden coloured with big white head. Fruity and stong with a sweet/bitter flavour. A beer for hobbits.

I'm not a great fan of the "Duvel-type" beers, but this one was ok. Spicy, hoppy. Extra points for appearance.
