CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2007
25cl bottle: Big rocky white clouds on top of a clear copper beer. The head doesn’t stick around very long. Heavy yeasty spice, caramel, floral hoppiness, hot alcohol, and some creamed corn fill your nose. Not a shy beer. On the tongue you again get a yeasty spice with honey, malt, slight citrus and a very faint meatllic note. The Alcohol does come through at the back of your throat and is intensified with the carbonation. Finishes with hop bitterness, grain, and honey.

Grovlam (4203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
Bottle. Average rocky white head that mostly diminished. Clear sparkling body with a golden color. Good lacework. Aroma of yeast, citrus, caramel, coriander, clove and light spice. Light to medium bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a hint of bitter and acidic as well. Light sweet and hint of citrus to finish with.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2007
On tap at Mort Subite, light spicy blond, with a nice floral hop finish. The malts gave a mild honey flavor, bready, leading into a balanced finish. I enjoy Leffe a bit more, but this was a decent beer, way to easy to drink for 7%.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2007
Lys øl. Ikke særlig fyldig. Husker den ikke særligt godt - og var ikke noget særligt blandt de 4 jeg fik samtidig.
