Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) The gimmicky glass is NOT the main thing about this beer. Actually the "Kwak" is a very decent ale in it’s own right. Beautiful amber with a nice creamy head. Lots of floating yeast. Has some caramel-like notes but never gets sweet or cloying. Very nice ale. 181093

Leighton (22812) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2009
Had some at the Great American Beer Festival. Very rich Belgian ale. Pours a red-amber with a thick white head. Nose of sweet fruits and mild malts. Taste is sweet with strong caramel character. Body is full and the alcohol is warming. Solid.

Koelschtrinker (22074) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Schöne Bernsteinfarbe! Ein malziger Genosse, bei dem man den Alkoholgehalt spätestens zum Ende hin deutlich schmeckt. Eigentlich lässt sich das Bier schön trinken und schmeckt zu jeder Zeit recht gut, auch wenn sich im Mittelteil eine leicht Wässrigkeit zeigt. Test vom 25.5.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,10,8,8,10,9 - 9,30

fiulijn (21511) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
Orange - light amber color. Very nice aroma: hops and oranges. Malty, with a light sourness and tartness; fruity as well. Correct final. Quite original.

Theydon_Bois (21479) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle at t’Brugs Beertje, Brugge - 01/12/12. Mid chestnut brown with a good off white head. Nose carries Belgian yeast esters, light hops, malts. Taste follows, a little brown sugar, sweet caramel, malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, bitter sweet finish. Ok stuff, fairly basic beer but looks and feels good. Tthe first time I’ve drunk this since one of my first Belgian visits circa ’01/02. Novelty glass tastic !

mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2011 330mL bottle, pours a deep amber with a nice beige head. Aroma is sweet malts and yeast. Flavour of sweet, honeyed malts, some dark dried fruits and some yeast. Semi-sweet and bitter finish. Very good.

3.2
saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2006
Amber color with reddish shine. Medium head. Aroma is toffee. Taste is on the sweet side with good malty accents. In the afthertaste you can notice herbs, some spices and a faint bitterness

3.8
harrisoni (19536) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 Bottle . Dark orange thin white lasting head. Caramel and orange peel run through this beer. Lovely caramel with citrus/orange nose. Caramel in mouth with orange peel/hop dry finish. Good balance, nice beer with toffee but not over the top with the candy sugar. On draught at The Rake. Bit sickly with strong malt. But drinkable and odd seeing it on draught 3.5/5
