mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange body with a medium white creamy head and soft lacing. The aroma is strong of apple yeastiness, dough, and liberal spiciness. The flavour is extremely doughy and yeasty with some notes of sweet fruit and then leaving some sharp tartness. Very spicy and warm in the finish. Deceptively easy to drink with layers of complexity. The alcohol only shows up as it warms up. Very good. Sampled at Le Zageman, Brussels on May 9, 2006.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2006
750 ML bottle: Medium gold w/a lasting white head. Aroma at first is very corkish. Beyond that, grainy malt, floral, and spicy, peppery yeast. Very delicate plummy and dried apricot esters. Still has a decently strong wood cork aroma as it warms, but its not over powering. Well balanced flavor. Spicy peppery yeast, grainy malt, floral esters from alcohol, and a very light plum fruitiness. Finish is semi dry with a pleasant earthy hop aftertaste that lingers with the grainy malt. Lighter body, probably due to the very high level of carbonation. Very explosive m/f, smooth, and well hidden alcohol. A good beer, but a bit lacking in complexity for a 10% ABV beer. The hop flavors sort of take over the aftertaste and become a bit herbal and grassy, and I prefer fruity and malty. A good beer for me, but not a great one on my personal palate.

marcus (9552) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 5, 2006
This golden ale poured with a fluffy white head, eliciting a flowery aroma. The flavor is hoppy but slightly flat with a very bitter finish.

saxo (17224) - Hjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle. Good sized head with good duration. Color is golden and a tad hazy. Aroma is very malty. Taste is malts as well but very alcoholic

Bartzilla (622) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Not too shabby but nothing super special at the same time. Typical golden/strong. The alcohol notes are very prevalent. The lacing and carbonation are exquisite. Had this at the 12 Hour Belgian Beer Party and then a couple weeks later at OBriens. I liked it better at the festival... probably because I was pretty pasted when I had it.

yngwie (16716) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Bottle, 75cl corked. (RBNAG 07) This time as Millennium 2000. Clear pour, except for some floaties, golden to straw color, with a huge, white head on top. Sweet and slighlty grainy aroma with a little alcohol. Malty (wheat?) flavor with a balancing fruityness, as well as alcohol. Quite effervescent and warming in the mouth. Nice, but the Malheur beers somehow fails to be as good as expected. Rating: 6-4-7-4-15-3.6. Im leaving the old rating valid.

Bottled, 0.75ltr. Lightly hazy and golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is mostly hops and alcohol with some yeastiness. Flavor has maltyness and sugar too. Full body and a mellow bitter finish. (060328)

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 RERATE of a 2005 Bottle and shared with Tom: Pretty much the same as before except I noted a bit of soap and sweet bread on the nose. The taste seemed more fruity and there was a trace of a lacto sourness too. -1 Flavor and -1 Overall.

Bottle, 2000 - Millennium Release and served in my Duval Snifter:

Greeted me with a lightly hazed golden hue topped by an everlasting frothy white head and good lace.
The aroma has notes of earthy and dusty yeast esters playing along with light apricot and pear. Additionally the nose detected mild pepper and clove along with some remaining sugar candi but not a lot.

The taste starts with a dose of sweet malts and candi supported by ripened fruit followed by a mild spicy midesection. Throughout the the tasting there is the common yeast character often found in most Belgian Strongs. There was a bit of prickly bitterness by I think age as mellowed and dried it out.
The palate is biting at first before a heavy serving of yeasty and woody dryness comes about. While the alcohol is there, again age seems to have mellowed it out as well, nicely warming.

I like it the more I consumed it, very tripel like and would be if brewed by monks. I really like how it aged out and it appears to just now be hitting on all fours. If cellared right, this five plus year old beer will be more than just fine. Thanks for the bottle!

Fin (9939) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2006
Bottled, Bruges, 04-11-05. A warm golden slightly hazy coloured beer with a slim white head. Wonderfully tangled and complex layers of fruitiness and spices with hops in the background this is superb and actually even slightly better than the Malheur 12

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bright, fruity aroma, light clove-like phenolics, mild graininess.Slightly hazy pale golden color, big, long-lasting white head. Crisp flavor, nice balance of fruitiness and light malt, a little spicy from the yeast profile. Medium-light body, very high carbonation, dry finish; very drinkable, if you dont mind a few burps. A really nice Belgian blonde that I would classify as a classic example of the style - its not over the top, but very enjoyable and highly drinkable.

Quinten (1062) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2006
Dark golden color, thin head, fully aroma explosion complex with spices and fruits, very nice one
