thirstyrabbit (1254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Pale golden body, medium head. Aroma resembles Abbey Tripels with yeast and spicy hops. Kind of similar to Leffe too. A bit thin mouthfeel with modest hops and medium sweetness. Taste lacks the complexity of the aroma. However, the alcohol is well hidden.

rdb84 (173) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
Fles. Schenkt als een Pilsener. Aroma: weinig...wat zoete graan, blikchampignon. Smaak is zoet, lichte toets van appelstroop, marsepein. Bittere evolutie die erg lijkt op pils. Niks bijzonders.

Clear straw golden, fluffy medium white head with soapy retention. Nose is spice, fruit, hop notes and some vague alcohol. Flavor is malts, some sugars, spice hints, toasty notes, fruit and coriander. Mild hops and dryness in the finish. Pretty decent.

Keg @ Ma Rica Rokk, Brugge. Clear golden with a small head. Crisp keg ale, fairly strong tasting but retains plenty of its style in aroma and taste. Yeast, a touch of spice and a nice smoothness.
