Snifter draft at Dilly Deli in Cincinnati. Hazy amber with moderate rocky head that diminished slowly. Good aroma of citrus, yeast and hops. Medium body. Full complex hops, fruit and spice flavor with a small bitter long finish. Very good Belgian Ale. Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 Bottle at the Rulles brewery. Golden with nice white head. Fruity, hops, herbal and spicy, lightly resinous, lingering bitterness. Just lovely...(4.0). And it just gets better and better each time I have it; tropical touch to the fruitness - unripe pineapple, grapefruit. A great session-beer.

Pale golden, nice white filmy head lasts until the end. Exquisite fresh citrus nose, boastful dry tangerine, marmalade, floral amarillos, delicate hay and gentle belgian yeast. Light, almost crisp pils malts, slightly biscuity, but the hops dominate, I’m told they are of 3-4 different varieties, the aroma ones being all american. It is fairly hoppy, could be a Saison with american hops. A gentle herbal tartness procures extra balance on top of an awe-inspiring ease to drink by big sips. Plentiful hay harvest. Heavy citrus component, marrying with the saisonish funky yeast like a natural. Light-medium body, excellent mouth-cleaning carbonation, impressive balance. This blends together the liveliness of the best hoppy american ales with the charming rural Ardennes yeast character. Certainly one of the best summer beers anywhere and anywhen. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUL 19, 2005
Gold with white head. Mild citric/spice aroma. Zesty spicy refreshing flavour. Medium bodied, tasty ale. Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Tap at andy’s. This was a good summer brew. Fruity but not over the top, good mix of sweet and bitter and malt character. Easy drinking and refreshing. I smelled and tasted bits of banana and clove.

Tap at Andy’s. Billed as a special B-United brew only, if you can believe it ;-). Hazy yellow, white head. Clovey banana hop aroma, nicely balanced. Flavor is pale malts and hops, and lots of ’em in the flavor. Bitterness is balanced with the maltiness. Some spicy clove notes in the flavor as well. Real nice summer beer. Also submitted the description that B United gave to me to be added... Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2005

Bottled (beer #10) at the Croydon Draught Beer Festival. This looks like a new beer from Rulles, and a very good one. As the turnover of draught beers was a bit slow, we found ourselves drinking a number of the bottled beers that were available - principally for take away as they were not chilled at all. Despite the imperfect serving conditions, the Rulles beers nearly stole the show. This one was quite rustic and earthy - almost in a saison style - with some farmyardy hints, zippy orangey hops and a bit of yeasty character. In fact the yeast is very slightly intrusive, hense it loses a mark or two. Dry and noticeably sharp, although manages to be quite soft at the same time. Excellent stuff.

Belgian Draught Beer Festival, Croydon, London. Very nice indeed. Nice zesty citrus/mandarin, with some peppery spice. soft lingering acidity gives the flavour some length, soft mouthfeel, long finish. Nice farmhouse character.
