Would guess this goes good with most people: it is quite sweet, has a aroma of sweet citrus fruits and a bit of mango, which comes back in the flavour. Head is not spectacular, colour is again that of ripe orange fruits. Enjoyable.

Countbeer (5263) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2011
Another one of those beers I kindly forgot... One of the thousand Belgian (strong) ales out there... This beer came bottled and poured an almost clear yellow golden colored beer with a small off white head that disappeared pretty quick. The smell was a light mix of yeast, fruits, some sweets, light malty and some herbs. Taste is again bit yeasty and fruity with hints of sweets, grains, herbs/spices, malts and medium bitterness. Malty sweet light yeasty bitter aftertaste. Medium carbo, light sharp mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery/creamy texture. Couldn’t get me excited, but ok when visiting a Belgian bar with a terrace in the summer...

Fles 33cl Kleur: Goudgeel met een brede witte schuimkraag die mooi in het glas blijft plakken. Geur: Een beetje zurig. Smaak: Juist een beetje zoet en daarna kruidig. De nasmaak is bitter. Het is een fris bier. Lekker van smaak. Weinig koolzuur

Bottle. Poured a pale golden colour with a lovely tight head which faded quickly. Aroma is sweet honey and slightly oily which develops as it warms to include a little grapefruit. Flavour is faintly disappointing with an sweet honeyish caramel that doesn’t quite do it for me. Slight biscuit taste as it dries on the palate and the mouthfeel is good but with an odd alcohol spike. Overall impression is honey taste but I feel let down.

Bottle. Refreshing, fruity aroma, deep gold color. Sweet,lager-like malts, not much hopping going on, very fruity with some honey. Not very exciting. Doesn’t hold up enough flavor to justify the 8.5% alcohol.

Yves (2524) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2011
Clear light brown coloured beer with medium off-white head and lots of carbonation. Fruity malty aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is roasted with hints of caramel ending bitter. Good one.

It poured a pale yellow liquid with a white head. Sweet and malty smell with some corn. Similar taste but also some yeast and fruits. Felt industrial.
