yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2009
On tap at the brewery cafe, sun splitting the clouds as I entered the courtyard. Had this with a bowl of soup. It serves a hazy, straw or yellow-golden body under a small, white head leaving cute lacings. Citrusy, fruity nose with a wheaty touch. Flowery hops with some pepper and pinecones. The flavor has citrus and pale malts with a fine piney hop touch. Pleasant bitter finish with some citrus. Full-bodied, dry and nicely carbonated. A beer that might be simple in many ways, but it’s quite complex, tasteful and moreish. Wouldn’t mind returning to the cafe to have this one again. 091008

MiP (13663) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2008
Draught at the monastery’s cafeteria. Weak vinous aroma. Hazy yellow colour. Very small creamy white head. The flavour is citric, refreshing and slightly bready. OK hopped, citric getting slightly sour in the finish. Good bready aftertaste.

Tap @ Achelse Kluis, Belgium.
Pours hazy blonde with a lovely, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, light spicy, malty and with a bit of apple. Medium carbonation, pleasant fat mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, fresh malts, apple, light banana. Some Belgien sugar. Kinda chewy and light grainy in the mild bitter finish. Really nice and fresh.

Koelschtrinker (10833) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 18, 2011
Erfrischend hefig-herber Antrunk, nicht ganz vollmundig. Wenig hopfig, herber werdend, dabei sind die belgischen Kräuternoten eher gering. Herb-bitterer, leicht zitrusartiger Abgang. 10/9/10/8//9

bierkoning (10381) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Blonde, hazy. Citrus and rancid butter in the aroma. Watery mouthfeel. Firm hop character with cellar notes. Grassy. Hints of rancid butter in the flavor. Something must have gone wrong.

On tap (@De Kluis):Hazy, pale golden, smaller lacy white head; mineralic nose with a zesty and hoppy background; moderate, quite dry bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; lingering tart and zesty aromas in the hoppy bitter-sweet finish. Good session beer, unfortunately served tooooo cold.........
