Firstly, not the greatest named beer for the English speaking market! Now, does it smell and taste like a chemical toilet?...thankfully, no. Deep amber, large white bubbly head; well carbonated; grainy maly dominates with a slight citrus tang before it plunges into a most pleasing bitter finish - much more bitter than most Belgians I’ve had; feels fresh, different and enjoyable; tastes better than it sounds.

Smaczne piwo koloru mętnego bursztyna. Piana solidna lecz szybko opada. Dry hopped ale tylko na finiszu, bo po pierwszym łyku słodycz gra główną rolę.

Bière biologique ambrée, mais aussi excentrique, ou au moins, exotique. 3 céréales : orge, froment, épeautre et du houblon fortement aromatique. Couleur effectivement bien ambrée, rousse. Très grande vivacité : des milliers de bulles qui s’agitent comme au carnaval... Une clarté impeccable. Une mousse blanche et très stable. Des arômes très fleuris et plein d’épices douces. Un 1er goût dominé par l’épice et un peu de fruits blancs. Un 2ème sur les fleurs blanches. Un 3ème sur la réglisse, le massepain, et une légère pointe de câpre. Problème : les céréales sont « piégées » par ces dominantes. L’équilibre ne se produit donc jamais, même dans la longueur La levure est légère et adaptée au genre de cette bière. La finale est toujours sur la tonalité exotique. L’alcool est correct (7,8 abv) mais ne vient rien soutenir. Donc une bière « spéciale », oui, on serait même prêt à dire originale, mais beaucoup trop déséquilibrée pour obtenir une cote correcte.

Borresteijn (5418) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2012
33cl Bottle at a hotel. Murky amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of your washing machine after not having it used for a few days, soapy, grainy, some hops, seems off. Flavour is soapy, light floral malts, grainy, toasted malts, hops, firm bitterness, light fruity. Light bodied. Not very good.

Christian (11786) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2012
It’s not really a Christmas Tasting in Odense. Hazy amber with a small white head. Malty aroma with fruity notes and a floral touch. Sweet malty flavour with a really odd cereal character and a metallic note
