Had this beer in the Belgian town of Brugse, where it is brewed. Will always remind me of this town and of eating ribs at De Hobbit. U.S. purchased bottles faintly remind me of the original beer, but just don't taste the same.
A-Clear Golden amber color with a foamy head.
S-Pleasant citrus/orange aroma, balanced and inviting. Slight hops aroma.
T-Great taste, not bitter and the hops dose not dominate. There is a subtle spiciness that adds to the refreshing character of the beer.
M-Champagne feel on the tongue. Full and round feel, all taste areas stimulated.
Overall-Great beer from the first sip. Best enjoyed outside in the fresh air.

11.2oz bottle with a notched back label that seems to indicate best before Feb 09. Purchased at Bello Vino in Ann Arbor and poured into a tulip.

Hazy gold with a huge head of white that shows good retention and leaves lots of sticky lace.

When foirst opened, I was met with a strong skunk odor that got me a little nervous but after I let the beer sit for a bit those aromas wafted away and were totally gone to reveal pears, sugars, chalk, light lemony citrus, and grassy hops. A very nice combination of sweet and sour thaqt I like a lot.

The taste mirrors the nose in a lot of ways. I'm getting more hop bitterness, but the fruits and chalk are there for sure. This would go great with a plate of apples, pears and grapes as it has all of those flavors. This is really good beer.

Mouth is spot on for style. Enough body and carbonation to show balance. A beer this tasty and complex can only be very drinkable. I'm giving it a five as it all comes together nicely.
