golden colour with a frothy head... tastes of pur honeycomb with a slight pinch of citrus... quite surprpisingly on the light side tastewise for a belgian. But ever so smooth! JorisPPattyn (9982) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 11, 2005
This is known as St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru in its country of origin. Pale, drab amber colour; virtually no head, just some transparant bubbles. Quite alcoholic nose, and definitely some oxidation. Dull, lifeless sweetish taste, cookies, old sherry, oxydized. Thin body, flat as a pancake. A beer that hasn’t stood up to - what? Bad storage, transport, age ...? BBD is indecipherable. Will have to try again. ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Semi-cloudy pour with some chunks. Malty aroma for a Belgian. Slightly sour butterscotch flavor. Decent head/lacing, but not too impressive. Definitely above average for a beer, yet middling to lower average for Belgian. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours a two-finger white head that goes slowly leaving a good lace. Clear golden color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Slight malty nose. Starts mellow with some sweetness, finish is more malt than hop with no aftertaste. Keeps well, bought 8/2004. Expensive - $7.99 for a 16oz flip-top bottle from Hoosick Street Discount Bev. Troy, NY.

Hazy golden colour with big foamy white head. Fresh malty aroma with hints of pear. Malty and fruity flavor, acidic finish. Palate is rather thin.

Ashen slightly honeyish aroma.
Golden, low on visible carbonation, lacing creamy head.
A bit of fruit - orangepeel (including the bitter parts), hay, peppery, slight alcohol burn.
Unfortunately also a slight gunpowder and veggie note.
Medium body, oily mouthfeel.
Not overly impressive. Dorqui (2258) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 23, 2004

Golden with an off-white head of foam. Aromas are floral and hoppy with some nuttiness - oddly like some English bitters. Flavours are bitter and hoppy primarily with some sweet malts lurking in the background. Could be stronger on the final straight - the finish is spicy but lacking in oomph. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 28, 2004
A fairly decent Belgian Ale, although I don’t know if I would purchase this again. A somehwat floral aroma, somewhat light body, and somewhat bitter taste make this a somewhat dull experience...somewhat. Ok..
