(Bottle, 0.33 l - bottled 5/Dec/2012, at tiong’s tasting, thanks FatPhil, 20160109) A gusher. The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had soap and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, Belgian style yeast and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet, messy and bitter. A weird messy stuff.

330ml bottle - Freebie from Alus Celle, Riga - thanks!
Gusher! We were warned though. And it is past its BB by over 2 years. Otherwise, a nice hazy straw, with a large head. Sweet fruity aroma, peachy, malty, and oxidised in a nice way. Thinish palate, watery, even. A little bit of earthy bitterness. Survived quite well apart from the gushing aspec, but it may have done that new. Pleasant enough.

Pretty mice mild sour aroma with caramel and fig. The taste is pretty simple and quick fading.

mutz (855) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2014
Flesje gekocht bij Alehouse café restaurant annex biershop in Riga. Bleekgele kleur, schuimige plakkraag. Ziet er goed uit. Ruikt naar mout, vaag sinaasappel, gistig, beetje muffig. Smaakt vrij bitter, vaag citrusfruit, niet heel veel body. Doet me niet direct aan een saison denken qua smaak.

jinroh (1102) - ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2014
330 bottle from ALEhouse. I open the bottle and some foam gushes out. Not too much, so I solve this when I pour the beer out. It is hazy, darker and dirtier shade of yellow. Foam top is nice and subdues in a while. Aroma has some yeast but is also quite fruity and a bit peppery. One sip of this fills my palate with thick and peppery goodness. Feels actually much heavier than this 4,5% I can see on the label. Aftertaste is bitter and peppery, lasts long. Nice one.
