imdownthepub (10019) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2008
Bottled, 330ml at Kafee du Hopduvel, Ghent. Clouded orange with white head, hard carbonation. Quite strong pear drop aromas which lead to a sharp, acidic and drying beer. Nasal alcohol and reasonable hops, pretty reasonable.

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Golden with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has sweetness, notes of malt and light citrus and apple. The flavour has sweetness, a light citrussy bitterness, notes of malt, alcohol (quite a bit) and light hints of coriander and yeast. IMO the alcohol should be more subdued, and that makes the overall impression somewhat unbalanced.
