Habanero (4678) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle: Pours pale amber with a nice , meium sized, white head. Nose of caramel, yeast, malt and some spiciness. Sweet flavour with malt, citrus fruit, and hops too. Medium bodied- Pleasant bitter finish. Well balanced and enjoyable. It has nothing to do with Duvel...(?)

thewolf (12595) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2007
Bottle @ Samson, Nijmegen. Pours a clear golden with a big creamy white head. There is lots of lacing here. Aroma has a littel barnyard, some spices and a general sweetness. Sweet flavour as well, some definite spicyness at the back of my mouth. Not sour, quite sweet, and quite fresh and spicy. Good brew!

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 9, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 Bottiglia da 33cl da Paola a Brescia, colore dorato chiaro, carico, schiuma abbondante; sembra una Duvel torbida a guardarla, ma il sapore è interessante, ha un tocco di acidità forse lievito, retrogusto bislacco sembra di bere un pesce. Curiosa per Alken Maes.______________ENGLISH TEXT HERE______________33cl bottle @ Paola’s pub in Brescia, color is clear gold, deep, big head; looks like a hazy Duvel, but flavor is completely different and somewhat interesting: a touch of sourness, maybe yeast, weird final with fishy notes. Strange brew for Alken Maes.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle. Clear, golden pour, leaving a white head. Fruit, some yeast, tropical fruits and some spices in the aroma. The flavor has a nice, quite fruity flavor, lightly spiced and a with some yeast. Medium body. The finish has some hops, as well as pale malt. Quite nice, but it’s not in the same league as Duvel. (070707)

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2007
Golden. White head. Aroma is from fruits, dough, yeast and fruits. Flavor is fruity and yeasty. A really fresh brew! Fully bodied and round.

2.7
DuffMan (10429) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2007
Bottle bought at TRC Hotel in Launceston Tasmania. Murky golden with a towering white head that collapses into rocky merangue islands. Very yeasty aroma, a little sharp. Yeasty palate, a little spicy, biiter astringent finish. Alcohol is poorly integrated and borders on harsh. Not my favourite belgian strong.

3.6
gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour is the same . Yeast, banana, wheat, hop, spices. Nice beer.

3.4
Jerre (3391) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. (@ home) Yellow-golden color, great white head. Aroma fruity, light spicy. Medium body. Taste hops, sweet, and bitterness dry finish with alcoholic touch.

3.5
RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a thin yellowy-straw colour with a thinnish white head. Nose is funky sherberty fruit with developed brewing yeast. Mouth is sweet, slightly sour tinges with some fruit and maltiness balanced sweetness. A little fruit there, with alcohol warmness and a slight burning of a hop attack. Finishes sweet and sugar syrupy. Quite nice.

3.7
TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2007
Bouteille de 330 ml rapportée d’Espagne par mes parents. Arôme: Odeur d’épices et d’agrumes avec une pointe de vinaigre. Apparence: La couleur est orangée avec une faible densité de bulle.

Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement sirupeuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence d’orange et de résineux en arrière goût. (Rating #1136)
