Bottle: slight caramelaroma, buttery pearflavor, slightly hoppy. Tap: sold as Sjefke bier in Café de Nieuwe Roos in Ootmarsum. Stronger caramelaroma, cloudy amber color, pear flavor with a hint of sourness. Medium bodied, but the flavor is a bit on the thin side. The rating is an average. bluebones (2) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2003 does not count
Creamy, long lasting head. Cloudy with a good deal of yeast sediment. Transient hoppy flavour. Not a bad brew. Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 24, 2003
Hazy amber; yeasty, dry maltiness on the nose. Spritzy, slightly cakey malt, allspice, hop dryness. Intended to be consumed alongside mussels, and alongside meules belgiques the yeastiness dropped out of the beer, which to me was an improvement. The mussels improved the beer, but the beer didn't really do anything for the mussels. omhper (25744) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2003
Bottled. Reddish amber with very rich, fine creamy head. Sweet with big toffee flavour, othre wise clean and rather light flavourwise. Lightly salty finish. Actually quite similar to oyster with it's dicrete flavour and light saltiness. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2003
Yeast, and apricot aroma. Honey colour, hint of ruby, pours an enormous long lasting head, pretty lacing. Tastes of golden raisins, blood oranges, with a pomegranate aftertaste. Full bodied, good tongue tingle, quite bitter. A fine Belgian!

[Keg] Red amber color, with a thin persistent collar. Good and easy to drink, because of some dryness and astringency (and a light oak note), but not impressive. caesar (7286) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2002
I've always been wondering what this beer tasted like. It's not the fishy taste i expected. Looks pretty good, cloudy orange-brown color. Bit malty aroma and taste. Quite ok. jerohen (2352) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Not much taste............................................. OlJuntan64 (1264) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2002
Murky orange brown with lasting light beige head. Interesting sweet aroma. Raisins, fruit, honey and sweet golden syrup malt, cooked past malt and even oatey malt aromas. Medium sweet palate wih strong malty sweet start but little to nothing in the middle and a faint bitter after taste. If you like malt you will probably like this beer, otherwise give it a miss.
