MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009
On tap at the Morissey House in London, ON- A deep copper pour, has a frothy beige cap that is long lived and leaves nice lace. Simple nose of malts, some dark bread, a bit of fruit, some spice. Tastes sweet and malty, a bit of fruit with a touch of spicy hops. Simple, creamy and fruity finish. Medium light body. Ok.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
Poured a clear, medium copper colour with a prolific foamy white head which produced some excellent lacing, some of the best Ive ever seen. Aroma was very delicate, being barely floral along with some spices and fruit. Taste was fruity, Im guessing perhaps apricot or plum perhaps, with a slight sweetness.

ben4321 (6070) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Location: Had this one at a few different places, last time I believe was a few months back on tap at a bar in NYC

Overall Impression: It is an alright example of the Belgian Ale style, but there are better ones out there. The good news here is mostly about availability and price, not so much the beer itself. Take that for what it is.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2009
House of Brews: Tulip: Pours a nice amber, no haze. White head, substantial. Aroma is immediately skunky. Taste is wheaty, no aftertaste to speak of.
