Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Excellent belgian ale. Aroma very nice, with pear and cherries, and a hint of yeast. Mouthfeel is a perfect balance of subtle carbonation and sweet silkiness. Flavor is very sweet with a good sour finish.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Pours a great looking cloudy brown coppery color, awesome looking creamy beige head that stays so thick the entire time just sitting there. Aroma is very potent sweetness. Flavor is the same very sweet, caramel, fruity, so complex I just cant put a name on all the flavors Im getting its just too complex. Warming alcohol only adds to the awesomeness of this beer. This really isnt my style but Im appreciating every single aspect of this brew and will get it once in a while as I would not like it all the time, but like to switch up to this.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2006
Dark brown, hazy beer. small and diminishing head. light herby aroma, burnt, malty and a little yeasty. Full body, with a light sweet finish, The alcohol is clearly pressent; has some cognac touches. Ideal winter beer.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Bottle. Sharp metalic aroma. This beer has an unusual flavor. You can tell its a Belgian ale but, the sour notes are not followed by the weiss beer flavor I associate with the family. Perhaps this is a bad bottle. The finish is flat. Not a drain pour. But, a bit dissapointing.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2006
75 cl bottle. Dark reddish colour with a large white head. Nice aroma of spice and malt. Also spicy flavour with a touch of dried fruit, ends up very dry and nice.

aracauna (3550) - Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2006
The color of this is a beautiful dark red brown that just glows when held to the light. The aroma is molasses with a touch of banana (Bananas Foster, I guess). This is a rich beer with a slight spiciness.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 28, 2006
In the 0.33 L bottle. Light brown to dark amber in color with copper-reddish undertones. Large poofy off-white head. Has an interesting aroma resembling some brands of epoxy. No alcohol in the nose, which I find odd from such a high alcohol brew. Well hidden. Slightly sour (mayonaise?) aroma. Tart sour flavor. High alcohol burn to the mouth and esophagus. Lots of raisin flavor from this little bottle. A thick and chewy palate. As you finish this, your front teeth tingle and burn ever so slightly. Hmmmm. Packs a whallop.

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Beautiful full fruity aroma right when the cork pops. Pours rich red-brown with huge frothy beige head, rich musty dried fruit and vinous taste with sour finish.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2006
Bottle. Hazy dark brown, small off-white head. Sweet, yeasty and malty aroma, molasses, cinnamon, strawberry and cherry. Perhaps even a hint of blue cheese in there. Quite complex in any case. Flavor is sweet & sour, malty and yeasty. Reflects the berries and spice in the aroma, although not as complex and distinct. Ends in a bitterish hoppy aftertaste, which also reveals a hint of the 9,5% abv otherwise so well hidden in this brew.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2006
From bottle. Pours a orange brown with minimal tan head. Alcohol and dates in the nose along with other dark fruits. Flavor has some alcohol heat that blends well with figs and dates. A touch vinous as well. Works well.
