Swaroga (1441) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2013
33cl bottle. Cloudy orange with big head. NOSE : sweet malt aromas of caramel and sugar bread. Yeasty, fruity esters revealing aromas of apricot, banana and citrus peel. SIP : creamy body with medium carbonation. Sweet beginning with a background of yeast and fruits. It develops floral hop character that ends with fair amount of bitter hops. The beer is lightly bitter but just enough to end up with a pepper and metallic like aftertaste. OVERALL : good balance with decent body and carbonation. Easy to drink and 7% of alcohol is well hidden. Can’t go wrong with this one.

Standard Belgian blond beer. I think this is mostly brewed so that the Cluyesenaer bar has its own beer.

EddyBeer1 (925) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2013
Dorée-orangée, pétillance quasi-absente de visu, assez pétillante au palais, col blanc fin et persistant. Assez bien maltée caramel, un peu métallique en entrée, présence de miel, coriandre, fruits, réglisse, petite amertume sur une fin moyenne. Plus qu’agréable malgré un ABV qui peut paraître traître.

thewolf (11233) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet (online).
Pours clear orange with a large, creamy, white head. Aroma has malts, sweet and doughy, light caramel, mild oxidation. Medium carbonation, dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has some oxidation (and it’s not too old), doughy, sweet Belgian sugar, mild vinious, quite some herbal dry notes. A bit weird.

Benzai (8908) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear golden, slightly towards orange color. Small white head. Smell malts, some sweetness, something weird and slightly unpleasant and hops. Taste malts, sweet, lightly hops and fruits. Little bit fizzy carbonation, medium body. Decent.
