AvantAle (50) - Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle. Clear amber with surprising depth. Frothy dotty head that clings lovingly to the glasses side. Tingles the nose with sweet caramel, apicot and nicely balanced hops. Tastes similar with notes of a tangy orange. Tingly and smooth. Nice balance.

tmfi (27) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2007
330 mL Bottle. Pours a sexy molases color with a lingering light brown head, nice oaky, malty aroma. Very nice lingering mouthfeel with a hint of spice and tartness on the tongue. A complex sweet/sour mix overall a very drinkable beer for being 9+%

Wharfrat (27) - Alabama, USA - FEB 17, 2007
750 ML Bottle, poured with a nice head that leaves lace on the glass. Pretty reddish brown color with little bubbles. The aroma is very impressive, with dark fruits, malts, and alcohol blending nicley. The flavor mimics the aroma, only better. Complexity and goodness are the words that come to mind. The Belgian yeast has been tamed to avoid the extreme flavors they can produce. Mouthfeel is nice, with just the right amount of carbonation to balance the viscosity of the beer. One of my favorite Belgium Brown ales.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Pours a hazy burnt orange color. Aromas of oaky sourness w/ a hint of malt. The flavor is slightly sour with a distinct nutty flavor. The bottle possibly was off, and if so that would explain the odd unbalanced sweet and sour.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2007
Its a dark brown beer with a red hue and a nice head. The aroma has notes of preserved, dark fruits (plum) and candy sugar. The mouthfeel is nice an oily. The flavour is lightly sweet, spicy and has notes of fruit, plum/prunes and candy sugar. Its a pretty complex flavour and a really nice beer.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Poured a Dark amber with a huge head. The head lasted a long time with very nice laceing on my tulip glass. Aromas of citrus and dark fruits. I tasted grapes, raisin, and caramel. Finish was sweet with a touch of alchohol. Overall I really enjoyed this Ale.

Dorqui (2214) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 28, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,75L. Creamy and abundant head, lightly evanescent. Burnt, intense, dark and extremely fraught red color. Much vinous and complex scent: notes of stum, withered red grape, alcohol; a lot wrapping and warm. Overbearing and fraught taste; aromas of little red fruits and grapes juice with a sour and lightly acidulous young must end. Very interesting.

JoeinDahlem (1475) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2007
From a 33 cL bottle at Moeder Lambic. Dark amber color with lasting head. I smell sweet berries and caramel--you can already tell this used to be a Christmas beer. Flavor with caramel, alcohol, and some cherry. Finish is caramel-sugary with some alcohol. Sweeter than I normally like, but a fun complexity here.
