im not really sure what to think. It was good but not really impressive. Definately lacking complexity, especially when compared to the latrappe dubbel i had afterward. fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - DEC 7, 2001
Very pleasant taste and aroma. Nice and dark with a lightly syrupy body. Rocky head, plenty of malt and caramel, a bit lighter than a traditional scottish ale, but overall a worthy representative of the style. William (202) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2002
Had this one at the brewery, and was not impressed, had expected more. It is not a very complex beer, and it a little too sweet for my taste. DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 22, 2002
sweet cherry-fiz-coco-sweet aroma, I poured it right but the head was 3 times as big as the beer and had to wait a lifetime for it to settle down, the light had trouble trying to squeeze itself through the brownish presence of this brew, by the time it settled down the head was a clumpy milky off-white color and frothy, the aroma was now filled with alcohol, sourness, and a bit nutty and sweet, flavor was smooth, sweet and carmel like, alcohol undertones with spicy overtones, powerful finish that gave me a headrush every sip, powerful but good none the less friejose (24) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 11, 2002
Loved it in the glass and on the nose, unfortunately, it lost something once it made it to my mouth. Somewhat insipid mouthfeel, and pleasant enough taste, but a quick finish.

Pretty good, but not as good as the Chouffe Nice. A little thinner and less malty than I had hoped for after the Nice, and after reading the reviews. Looks great, nice head and lacing. notalush (5922) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Looks like there"s a lawn gnome in a skirt (I mean kilt) on the front of the bottle. Light brown ale with very high carbonation, which doesn"t make for the greatest of mouthfeels. The aroma is light and somewhat floral. The flavor is mildy sweet, little nutty, and very floral (I think they used heather in this ale to give it a real 'Scottish' flavor). Unique and easy to drink, but not something to rave about. diabel (1723) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Slightly off-white head, rather good lace. Deep brown, clear body. Aroma of flowers, hops, spice and some strong malts (contrary to what one would expect perhaps). Bitter flavour. Ungstrup (38413) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2003
A brown beer with a great head. The aroma is very fruity and alcoholic with notes of smoked malt. The flavor is very sweet - too sweet for my liking - with a great palate, but no hops to compensate the sweetness. The flavor contains notes of smoked malt, wood and fruits. A fine beer - with great memories. Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2003
Dark brown with medium head. Aroma is malty. Taste is a bit spicy with caramel and chocolate coming through.Alcohol is well hidden with a warm slightly bitter finish. More like a belgian instead of a Scottish?
