presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
Copper with a thick light brown head. Lots of wood notes in the aroma, strong spice, rich malt and some background yeast. That is delicious! This is a beer I would love to have on tap on a regular basis. Warm malt, touch of caramel toffee, thick spice and a gentle palate

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Bottle. Reddish garnet with tufty beige head. lager-bock yeast bread rum-malt fruit aroma. Surprisingly rather sweet, the first impression is so sweet that it could be syrupy sweet soft drink! To baad cause the looks and aroma are right but, thats so sweet that the flavor is missing! At least, its a kind of honey bready sweetness, with malty grain flavors that come apparent on multiple sips. A bit of a let down but, not a totally terrible beer by any means.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Cloudy reddish hue, neath a big, rocky, puffy head, cocoa-tinted... Yeasty, spicy aroma, very Belgian...apples and cherries...baking bread. the muffins are rising...and getting down with the fruit. Taste: Baked apples, bright berries, raisin roundies, ...nice yeast and juicy malt...tidy hops...noiceness, indeed, with frankly fat malt, and yummy yeast. Yummy, yummy...what more need be said...I like it. It works. Id have another. Please?

gnoff (9644) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - JUN 15, 2006
Bottle at Delirium Caf in Gothenburg. My bottle said "Kapittel Watou PAter Ale". Dark amber color, big beige head. Typical Belgian ale scent. Low to none bitterness, fruity taste. Rather big body. A nice fresh Belgian ale that I can have more of.

nice copper brown appearance with heavily visible carbonation and nice white head. aroma is of sweet lemon candy, think theyre called lemonheads. flavor is nicely balanced with malt, citrus, and spice. finish with some hops, may have been better with a little more alcohol bite.

henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2006
2003 - Brown clear body, red shine, huge fluffy beige head, some laces; Not all that big a nose, lacks depth and complexity, a little metallic, brown sugar, not fat but on the other hand a bit fresh; Medium sharp carbonation, soft texture, balanced; Into long a bit malty sharp finish that also has a very little bitter hop together with some brown sugar.

Skinnyviking (9111) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle. Off-white high and lasting head. Hazy ruby body. First impression of aroma is spicy roasted malt, later it seems fruity. It is rather sweet with a flavor of berries and sugar.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Poured a deep reddish copper with a thin beige head and moderate lacing. Aroma has a very herbal grassy hop character followed by some fruitiness most likely of dark candy sugar. Flavor is very hop forward, a gentle maltiness is consumed by the same herbal hop character that dominated the aroma. It finishes into a considerable amount of hop bitterness for a belgian. The bitterness seems to be slightly on the harsh side. Mouthfeel is also kind of watery.

Eructoblaster (3942) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown cloudy body with ruby glints and a lasting beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with fruity (plum, grape) notes. Texture is mild. Taste is well-balanced and complex. Carries fruity, flowery and yeasty hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable.
