Bosskie (473) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2007
9% 33cl bottle bought in Belgium. Big head which will flow over if you’re not careful. Golden hay colour with a few bubble columns. Smells like banana, apple with hints of lemon and a background of yeastiness. Good bitter-sweet balance. A fresh and creamy citric palate with a hint of cherry sweetness - but don’t worry, not sweet! Nothing really exceptional; just a hint of alcohol taste to remind you what you’re drinking: a well balanced, reliable beer!

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2007
Draught. Pours slightly hazy golden/yellow with a small white head. Aroma is slightly spicy yeast and sweet malt. Flavor is the same, with a bit of light fruit, slightly sticky, and various other flavors I can’t really place. The alcohol is slightly noticeable. Pretty good, and better than the average rating, I think, at least on tap.

SHIG (3751) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle: Poured a golden clear yellow with a thick bubbly carbonated head. The aroma is hoppy spice smell. The taste is very spicy opens the taste buds up and then the finish is brutal citrus and alcohol.

Comments: Typical sweet, spicy, bready and rather banana/acetaldehyde-like strong blonde from Van Steenberge that makes you feel like you’ve had it under a different name a few times in the past.
