JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2006
Hazy brown-chestnut beer; small brownish head. Nice nose, simple but effective combination of alcohol(s) and hops. Burnt & roasted malts, but leaving space for still quite some restsugars. There’s some bitterness, leafy and slightly hoppy, but not really distinctive. Medium to well-bodied, some alcoholwarming. Not bad. For Boelens’ recent prestations, breathtakingly good, and certainly infection-free.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2009
(Bottled, a gusher) Hazy golden with floating yeast particles and a largeish, bubbly and lightly lacy, lasting head. Crisp aroma of pale malt, gingery spiciness, juniper berries, lime fruitiness. Flavor is spicy and crisp, with a touch of burning alcohol, but all the different flavors really show up nicely. Medium body with soft carbonation, fresh and easy to drink. Really a positive surprise: complex, crisp, easily drinkable and refreshing. Nice!
