onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2008
Amber with a fine sized head. Sweet malty caramel aroma, nice but a little weak. Caramel yeasty flavour, nutty some hop balance and a gentle tart sensation. Quite a nice beer, and more than just an unusual glass

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2008
A pretty tastey brew, lots of spice and peppery flavors. Has a little bit of sediment at the bottom which I swirled around and dumped on top. Aromas are a little hidden, nothign really jumped out other than sweet bread, like bannana bread. And plenty of fruit in each sip.

75cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a light brown with a thick light brown head. Smells sweet with notes of toffee, caramel, raisins. Flavor is malty, ripe fruits and a little banana. Overall, a nice ale.

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.
