Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2008
Orange colour with a white medium head. Fruity aroma. Sweet and fruity flavour with some yeast, alcohol and malt. It wasn’t bad but I still feel that the glass was the best part.

330 ml bottle server from the special glass. Burnished orange color, off-white head. Yeasty flavor with some fruity notes, malty finish, medium carbonation. Not quite as good as I remembered it to be.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2008
Flakey amber, lacing & thick beige head. Sweet syrupy aroma, sweet pear, apple pie. Similar sweet flavor, syrupy fruits & maltiness, some hops and alcohol. Very simple. Medium bodied, smoothly carbonated, a bit syrupy mouthfeel. It’s all about the glass.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2008
Very much reddish orange color with light brown, quite small, firm and lacy head. Aroma is caramel malty, spicy, hoppy, yeasty with some alcohol coming through. Flavor is sweet, spicy, syrupy and balanced with raisins. Palate is medium-bodied, practically no carbonation and a bit alcoholic.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2008
I’ve seen this been served in Belgium into the almost chemistry class like test tube rack with mini yard glass - very unique. Good orange color and a bready taste. Superb beer.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2008
bottle and not bad. full amber color with a big foamy head. Really carbonated(my bottle anyway) and flavorful. aromas hit you with yeast, fruit, sugar, and some spices...hard to tell which ones. Flavor is bready and a bit sweet, but finish is nice and balanced. pretty damn good beer.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2008
I shared this with my parents last night, it was their first experience with a Belgian ale. My mom like it alot, dad took a little time to get into since it wasn’t Bud. He gave it a thumbs up later. Anyways, nice crystal red-amber-topaz color with elegant soft champagne like head that settles to champagne effers that remain till the end. Aroma expresses the mixed dried fruits, but has a strong dough yeast nose. Some caramel, barnyard dust and baking spices. Flavor was dominated by the yeast and less so of the other nosey flavors. Palate was creamy, again doughy, and a dry finish. Overall, a pleasant experience for everyone.
