30 .cl bottle @ home, bought @ Albert Heijn. Clear ruby brown with a thin off-white head. A bit of a swampy aroma with some malts, not really that good. Taste is soft, unoffensive and a bit boring. Some roasted malts, some hops but nothing exciting. Bit of a letdown because I highly appreciate their pilsener.

Világosabb árnyalatú, vörösesbarna színnel rendelkezik, amin csak egy vékony hablepedő fekszik. Egészen édeskés kandiscukros, aszalt gyümölcsös, fűszeres illata van, mint valami karácsonyi italnak. Ezeket hozza az íze is, valami kis gumicukros beütés is. Közepesen testes és nem túl szénsavas sör, aminek az utóíze keserédes és kissé cukros. Nem rossz bak sör, de teljesen más világ, mint például a német unokatestvérei.

Vaiz (3298) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is sugary malty, slightly spicy, grainy and a bit roasted. Flavor is very sweet and decently spiced. A bit dusty and with some cardboard. Slightly alcoholic. Intense, but out of balance.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is red forest fruits, swampy caramel malt. Meh. Flavour is dusty malt, some red fruits. Meh again.
