Maybe they make something different for export to the US. The bottle I tried was fresh from a friend's trip to the Netherlands. He brought back two of the round bottom glasses which are a nice souvenir but utterly useless. The beer was pretty good though. Poured a very thick head with a noticeable alcohol tinge. Settled down into a very drinkable, medium bodied ale with a nice grassy hop flavor.
This beer is a multilayered suckfest.
A. If you are drinking properly, you are too drunk to remember it needs to go in its damned holster as the bottom is ROUNDED and cannot sit alone.
B. There are nice chunks of sediment swimming around in the stupid yard glass that must have ate up all the good parts of the beer.
C. It tasted like someone squeezed a lime on their raked up leaves from last year.
D. They serve it in a yard ale glass because that is how it was served to coachmen on horseback in the 1800's. Poor fuckers were stuck with it.

I give this beer an A+ for originality and a D+ for sucking. Tastes of slight caramel, wet grass, a little spice, lime and sour fruit. It was a lot of work getting through this beer. Not very drinkable and definitely not something I would get again unless it was on tap. Bosteel's Tripel Karmeliet was infinitely better.
