thewolf (12027) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Haderslev.
Pours a great, clear, shining golden with a fine, medium, creamy, white head. Very nice looks. Aroma is quite Saison-like, good crispy, biscuity malts, some vanilla, pear, oranges and a slight oaky note. High carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit more subdued than the aroma, some good maltiness, lightly acidic and a fair amount of pleasant, dry hoppiness. Nice surprise.

330ml bottle by the courtesy of djoeye. Hazy dark golden body under a lasting off-white head. Fair lacing. Belgian yeasty fruit on the nose, lightly spiced. Fruity flavours, candy sweetness together with a yeasty touch. Foamy in the mouth. Satisfying (shared with Finn at his place in Tromsø 11.02.2015).

Maria (10214) - 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.
