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.. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Hazy gold to dull orange in color, with towering, rocky, buzzing and highly aromatic head. Aroma is citrus, spice, lemon, straw, sugar. Solid body, strong palate presence, a lively hop profile, with sweet maltiness behind it. Very distinct and uplifting taste and a pleasant finish that takes it’s time. A real reward in every sip, and a decent Duvel clone, but certainly not the same.
Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Bottle. Slight banana, clove, and wheat taste. As with St. Sebastiaan Dark, it is a little thin in body. Finish is quite crisp and clean. Not bad, but not something worth writing home about. clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - SEP 24, 2004
75cl. bottle. pours an hazy gold with a substantial head. apple, spicy hops, orange and yeast in tha aromas. flavors of orange candy, apple. spritzy mouthfeel. becoming dry in the finish with a slight orange flavor lingering. kind of a let down in the flavors. I expected a little more. still a good beer. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 22, 2004

Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2004
Clear and yellow. Medium white head. Aroma kind a grassy, hay. Flavor a little more maltiness than normal. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 22, 2004
08.22.04 0.5l crock. Golden pour; big bits of stuff floating about; head is small, but thick and creamy, light tan. Typical Belgian yeasty aromas. A slightly off, slightly chemical smell (aerosol paint?). Creamy texture, very full mouthfeel. Mild flavors with melon and vanilla undertones. Nice finishing bitterness. Not much spice. Pretty focused on one dimension, unfortunate alcohol presence for a beer that’s not huge. Enjoyable, but not remarkable. Radek Kliber (7359) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 21, 2004
Pours medium sized head, bight amber, clear gold hue. Sweet Belgian sugars, some yeast mixed in. Sweet flowery, some hops and toffee .Nice...Sebastian!
Thanks Doug for many beers you shared with me!

Clear gold-amber. Creamy off-white head. Sweet, Yeasty & malty aroma. Full, lively body. Very sweet (almost cloying) malty flavour w/ some fruitiness & spiciness. Finish is peppery & alcohol laden. (Cool bottle though) rauchbier (3891) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2004
Bottle, DBF 2004. Gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Sweet maltiness in the nose, more malt and a touch of spicy yeast in the mouth with some developing corky funkiness into the finish.
