Bottel@home - witch almost emptied itselves when opening it. Pours dark brown and hazy (maybe from the yeast) with a gigantic huge off white head. Aroma with notes of ginger, yeast and herbs, and some sourness. Taste of coriander, ginger, yeast as well as some sourness. I also sences the same cooling feeling as when you eat menthol. The mouthfell is medium body, slightly oily with a very lively carbonation. all in all a nice belgian brew.

Lots of spices in the smell and taste as well. A bit of chocolate and liquorice. Too much spice for me to really enjoy, but a fun experience.

jonas (5477) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2014
Tap at Bar Animal. Complex nose: bergamotte, bubblegum, lactic, horse blanket notes? Dark brown, big golden head. Roast, wood, lemon, bubblegum and berries, dry bretty notes, mint. Dry medium body, mellow mouthfeel. Leather and chocolate finish. Unusual, especially the bubblegum notes ( I guess from the spices?) but really well balanced and pleasant to drink

jmgreenuk (3565) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2014
Tap at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a dark brown with a reddish hue and a thin off white head. The aroma is acid citrus light sour. The flavour is medium sour light sweet with a rich dark malt fruity palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Really liked this. There was lots of flavour but nothing was overdone.

fkoolen (143) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2014
Pours a dark brown colour with a foamy beige head. Nose and taste mainly have red fruits (cherries, grapes), wine-like notes and matching sourness: almost a fruit beer, with a geuze-like hint coming through. Lively mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Not too bad, but the lack of balance makes it easily forgettable.

sic1314 (2560) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2013
Poured deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sour fruit and soft malt. Medium to full body, flavour is slightly spicy red berries, lingering dry, sour finish.

Very spicey and unique beer with a strong body of yeasty sweetness and malt. Special and interesting beer.
