sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottled) Slightly hazy golden color with a medium, foamy and white head. Yeasty, somewhat acidic, dryish aroma. Acidic and sourish, quite dry, wheaty-malty flavor with orange-peel and cardboard hints. Medium-bodied, acidic and dryish palate with a bit foamy carbonation. Re-rate wouldn’t hurt, as this was the 21st rating of today... Not one of my favorite beers, anyway.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) This original version is from brewery "Biertoren" in Kampenhout. Comes with a back-label in Spanish! That’s something I’ve never seen before. Golden, honey-like colour with an incredibly tall, and pretty head. Very soft mouth-feel in spite of the carbonation. Flavourwise there isn’t that much happening. Some sweet malt and a hint of some citrus. But not much body. 180398

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2005
Rather pleasant. Quite sweet & smooth. Lots of fruitiness and other flavours - peach, apple, citrus, honey. Heavy doughy yeastiness. Pale malts used, acquiring grain, bread and cookie flavours.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Sweet nose with notes of yeast and banana. Golden body, with a small white head. Sweet flavor, but rather weak.

highlandlad (1477) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2005
Clumsy Belgian ale that tastes much stronger than its 6% abv. It poured a cloudy gold colour with a thick white head. Banana notes in a light, wheaty nose. My first taste impression was of bubble gum, followed by a big slug of alcohol in a thick, chewy body. There are also strong bitter tea characters but it’s dominated by the alcohol. Lacks balance - tastes like a much stronger beer. (Bottle)

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
Hazy golden colour with a big fast dissapering white head. Sweet yeasty aroma and a spicy taste. Medium body and a dry finish.

Ungstrup (34705) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2005
A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and very yesty. The flavor is dry and sweet with strong notes of oranges.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2004
Hazy pale gold coloured, with a frothy white head. Aroma is citrus/apricot and some yeast. Taste is big hops upfront, then spices and citrus through to a dryish bitter finish. Medium bodied, quite highly carbonated. A pleasant beer.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 27, 2004
Quite aged sample, difficult to say if it’s already Huyghe or a Biertoren original - the brewery that launched this, and immediately went bankrupt for overinvestment Pale amber; very little bubbles for carbonation to small crème head. Oxidation nose, walnut, madeirisation, biscuit, liqueur. Very biscuity taste, cookie malt & again some liqueurish notes. Quite empty, in fact. Alcohol obvious, not burning, medium bodied, rather slick. The age seems - together with the fact that it made it into my cellar - to hint at Biertoren. The total emptiness, as well as the treacherous sticker "fast sale" speaks otherwise. I fear Huyghe after all.
