Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2005
Dark yellow color, very cloudy appearance. Nice yellow head. Spicy, fruity, sweet aroma, nice rich Belgian ale aroma. Mild alcohol in aroma too. Strongly sweet and fruity flavor, ends with mildly spicy aftertaste, nice flavor. Medium bodied, some lace in glass. Ending has some yeast in flavor and some dryness in aftertaste too.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2005
Hazy light amber with strange greenish shine. This beer has a massive froth with the caracteristics of wipped egg-white. Complex nose with good maltyness, some honey, barnyard aromas, yeast and some herbal spices. The taste is complex and has a smooth mouthfeel with a good livelyness. Taste of malts, honey, buttercake, fresh stonefruits and touches of sage, laurel and fine hop selections. A very good beer with an original taste. At the KULMINATOR in Antwerp.

Ungstrup (35021) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2004
The aroma is very light - primarily spicy (probably the mustard) with notes of oranges. The color is a hazy orange and it has a huge head. The flavor is very nice, a mellow sweet background which there is spices, oranges, and mango. The mustard hits You in the end and combines with a hop bitterness for a very interesting end. A fine beer.

bring on the mustard, this beer was given to me by my father who came back from belgium. I loved it's yellow white cloudy color with a nice refreshing aroma. the decent white head made way for a unique taste. Sweet fruit and wheat were noticed. great balanced palate with a clean slight spicy finish. Very refreshing. Beats a "hoe" any day.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2003
Bottled. This beer has a magnificent blond, treble colour and a white head. It smells like wheat and malt. It has no special flavour, ceratinly not disgusting. It is rather bitter-sweet. Long (bit salty) aftertaste. An enjoyable beer.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Straw - gold with brilliant white head and typical belgian lace. It has a nice light grainy aroma. Though I cannot detect the mustard in this beer, it is extremely quaffable with fruity ester aromas and flavours and perfect balance.

JorisPPattyn (9603) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2003
Beer brewed by Lefbvre for mustard factory Bister in Jambes. There used to be a first version by Mibrana at Namur. Orange colour, slightly hazy. Very thick head, mass of minuscule bubbles. Orange rind, even orange juice in the nose. Carbon dioxide. A bit spicey. Very light, fruitey, slightly sourish taste. There is a faint flavour, mostly retronasal, that is no doubt the mustard speaking. For the rest, the taste is very restrained - not at all like the first Mibrana version, that was quite spicey. Mouthfeel is surprisingly refreshing. Not much body. Even less aftertaste than taste. The idea is great. Mibrana made something out of it to be remembered. The beer of Lefbvre is... superfluous.

A fresh and spicy beer. Quite interesting and not very "bister".

Not very good. I got pretty bister (in Danish this means gruff, grim and fierce) from drinking this brew. It was a little unpleasant.
