(Bottle at One Pint Pub Belgian weeks -- shared with Sinensis and hkkl, thanks!) Hazy and golde. Small white head. Sweetness and vegetables in aroma. Full bodied and dry palate with medium carbonation. Malts, saltiness, sweetness, some sulphur, bitterness and some liquorice in taste. Sweet and malty aftertaste.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a medium, firm head. Grainy-pale-malty aroma with some honey sweetness. Pale, sweetish malt with herby hops and honey hints in the flavor. Fruitiness comes up with yeast. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but smooth palate. A quite balanced blonde on the sweeter, fruitiier side. Not far from tripel.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2008
Bottle, 7%. Sweet and spicy aroma, some raisin. Cloudy orange colour, big stable white head. High carbonation. The flavour is quite spicy and nice, unfortunately a bit dry. A little more sweetness would have made much more interesting to me.

yespr (37603) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours golden orange and hazy with a huge, white and slowly collapsing head. Mild orange fruity and yeasty aroma. Flavour is sweet caramel malt and light yeasty. Holds a smooth yeasty finish with a light lingering spice note. A bit too dry and too simple.

MMortier (11) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2008
My favourite proefbrouwerij brew. Fruity and sirupy as it is, there is a common element to all their beers that seems to have reached an optimal equilibrium here. Starts out very sweet but tender complexities cause for a long finish. One to take in large trusty gulps, a very pleasant beer to drink. Don’t believe the 7% though, you can easily underestimate this beer’s effects. Hard to find, even in Ghent.. I know only two places here that serve this one. All the better, I guess.

Copper-red beer.Nice hoppy citrus aroma. Also coriander noticable. Flavour is nicely balanced. Again coriander and citrus but nothin overwhelming. A very nice beer indeed.
