ekstedt (5568) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 Bottle (33 cl) at Kulminator, Antwerp, Belgium. Pale golden with a medium white head. Honeyish malt aroma with spicy yeast notes. Light to medium bodied and smooth. Nicely balanced. 6/3/7/3/12->3.1.

New rating:
Draught at a café in Bouillon, Belgium. Same tasting notes, but a bit higher rating, probably because I had been hiking for six hours: 8/3/8/4/15->3.8. Final rating an average.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2008
A very lite colored yellow beer, very clear and sparkling. A white head, which doesn’t stay for long. It’s looks and tastes like a pilsner. Not even a good one. Not mine cup of tea (beer).

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice hazy deep golden colour with a good well lasting creamy white head. Lots of fruits and malt in the aroma along with yeast, some spices and some hops. Good filling mouthfeel. Very nice flavour with a good sweetness, yeast, fruits, hops, some spices and surprisingly wheat too. Sweetishfruity, yeasty and bit bitter finish. Great brew.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2007
[Bottle bought in La Roche.] A strong blonde with weak triple notes makes this brew better than average blondes. Powerful aroma followed by a flavor with notes of fruits, caramel, weak but good alcohol, spices, yeast, citrus, fullbodied and a nice finish.

yngwie (13924) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle, shared by papsoe. Clear, a bit pale, yellowish body, topped by a white head. Fruity nose with tea, citrus and pale malt. Fruity flavor as well, quite citrusy, with some yeast and pale malt and a good bitterness., especially towards the finish. Medium body. Quite bitter finish with some wheat-like flavors. It took me some time to decide if I liked it or not, but ended up deciding I like it. Quite classic, still strange in a way. (071006)

Dedollewaitor (14086) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2007
Clear yellow with a white creamy head & lacings. Fruity sweet aroma, quite fresh. Dry metallic taste. The taste is not pleasant in any way like the amber version!

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy golden with a dense, creamy, off-white head leaving a neat lacework. Spicy aroma with some yeast. Full-bodied with lightly sweet fruit notes, a solid malt base again with a spicy edge - perhaps a whiff of ginger - and a distinct yeastiness. Dry and very bitter finish. Very classical Belgian. 061007
