Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) A golden ale which is reasonably clear until I pour the sediment. Then the color is grey-orange. Very aromatic, along the style of a "Triple" or a paler trappist like Orval. Spicy and refined with quite a lot of sweetness which is at the same time rather discreet. Quite nice. 110304

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2004

The beer pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow color with a smallish bright white head that is semi-creamy in texture, and the lace a rather thin veil to conceal the glass. Nose is somewhat sweet, orange peel and coriander along with a strong scent of yeast, citrus like crispness, start is sweet and sour, mild malt profile with a rather slender feel to the top. finish is persistent in its a acidity, the hops forthright and the aftertaste somewhat bitter, dry a bleached desert bone, a fair to middling beer, certainly not the best beer I've ever had from Belgium, but then not the worst either.
