MiP (15304) - 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 (40865) - 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.

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.

bierkoning (12581) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2006
Orange blonde color, frothy head. Flowery aroma with soap, citrus and a hint of coreander. Flowery flavor, somewhat soapy with loads of mandarin. Evident hop character hidden by the fruit and the flowers.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2006
A Sim rate: bottled from Trappistenhuis, Ghent Belgium. Very hoppy amber flavour. Delectable sweet honey aroma. Morello cherries in the finish. Lovely lovely brew.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle at het waterhuis Aan de Bierkant, Gent. hazy amber with a rich, fluffy head that left nice lacing.Coriander and spicy hops aroma. Sweet flavours with good bitterness as well as spiciness (coriander). Medium mouthfeel. Very similar to their Gandavum housebeer, but darker. A well-made and very nice beer.
