GreenWall (54) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
Like a dubbel with a shot of brandy in it. Not bad, at that. (Warming, spicy (cardamom), dried fruit, smooth; brown, garnet highlights, no head)

Beer5000 (6387) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 27, 2009
330 ml bottle. Good looking reddish brown body with a big off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, brown sugar and fruit. Flavor is sweet malty, caramel, slightly roasted sugar, spices, fruit, some bitterness and alcohol. Its quite complex but easy to drink. Excellent balance between sweetness, bitterness and alcohol with a pleasant finish.

Davros (3071) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2011 Pale amber/ruby. Inch-high off-white head fades to a thing covering. Good lacing. Typical Belgian yeast aroma, some white rum, lots of phenols, then some banana, nutmeg and cinnamon and a fair whack of sweet malt. Remarkably like the dubbel I brewed the other day. Flavour is mostly alcohol, some fruity malt, doughy yeast and some lemon. The alcohol and high sweetness combine to make a cloying finish. Loads of alcoholic heat on the palate and too much carbonation. Used to think Leffe was the be all and end all of intense expensive beers. Thank god I got over the stage.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - APR 2, 2009
Nice deep ruby color with a large brown head. Looks great! Aroma had definate notes of rasberries mixed with some yeasty belgian fruity notes. Flavor was quite bitter, the kind of bitterness you get from green berries, mixed with a rather cloying sweetness. Guess it just went down hill from first to last impression.

Bottle: Amber, clear, lively carbonation, small, but stable creamy beige head; a subtle fruitiness in the by caramel and coriander dominated nose; moderate sweet, slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied, sweet-caramelly finish with a subtle fruitiness and some spices around.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours red/orange, off white head. I do like the colour. Aroma is sweet, like sugary plums. Flavour has berries and plum, which fade to some hop bitterness. A good balance in the flavour. Finish is bitter and dry. Nicely made ale, alcohol doesnt show at all.

330ml bottle. Poured with a large foamy off white head, ruby copper in colour. Aroma of mouthwash, tasted a bit like mouthwash at the start but once I drank some more it started to taste better. Strong bitter aftertaste.
