WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Certainly not my favorite Belgian or my favorite brown ... more of an amber colored light tasting light mouthfeel brew. Beautiful amber with a foamy white head. Saved by an interesting nutty fruity back story that I did not anticipate.

spkevin (433) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 330ml bottle and 2 glasses on draft @ paddys pub, Doetinchem. This beer has a very good aroma and a nice colour (dark golden). the beer just looks very nice. the taste is ok but it has a strange fiinish/aftertaste. could be better. expected more from this. good replacement for when you dont want to drink a pale lager/pilsner. maybe going to drink it again.

A bland Belgian beer, which comes as a surprise by Belgian standards. A bit fruity, not much though. If anything, a thirst quencher - at a push.

Plovmand (8096) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
On tap. Pours hazy amber with a long lasting white head. Fruity and malty aroma. Flavour is the same. Palate is pretty watery.

Dogbrick (12501) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Sample at San Diego Brewing Company. This beer is a clear orange-ish color with a medium thin and creamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. The aroma is fruity and spicy. Medium-bodied with a soft mouthfeel and flavors of tart fruit and spices. Touches of yeast as well. The finish is mildly spicy and short. Slightly below average overall.

jredmond (8005) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2009 Draft @ BXL between 6th and 7th ave. Pours dark amber pretty clear, with white head. The aroma is pretty light - some sweet notes. The taste is smooth and not really dry finishing as the menu description suggested. Not bad. Listed at 6% abv on the menu as well.

SaintMatty (7172) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2008
330ml Bottle - Copper coloured with a foamy head. Biscuity,malty and fruity aroma. The taste is fruity with some malt and a light hoppiness. It is perfectly drinkable but rather bland by Belgian standards.

On draft at San Diego Brewing Company. Dont ask me how, but I could tell from the tap handle it was going to be bad... and I was right. I dont know how they get away with calling this a belgian ale. It was like yeasty water.

Bottle at Calsens kvarter Odense. Creamy white good mostly deminishing head. Yellow colour. Light malty ans hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Nice moderate bitter finsih. Watery palate. Not a good belgian ale, tastes more like a lager!
