bierkoning (11403) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Light orange color, hazy. Hoparoma, somewhat dusty with vanilla. Sweetish, very hoppy flavor, almost creamy with vanilla. Great quality beer, not as deep and complex as Contreras Mars, but with a very fine taste. Tap, Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Malty aroma. Malty sweet buttery flavor, with loads of mango and peach. Lemon and vanilla. Hopbitterness comes up and persists in the aftertaste. Lovely!

Bov (10771) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2011

Maria (10190) - 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.

Rune (9500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2015
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).

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Tap at RNH. Slightly hazy golden pour. Tight creamy white head. The nose is softly spicy. Initially the beer has a peppery character and there is a very rich creamy palate. Bright earthy Belgian pale malt with a nice rusticity. Lightly wheaty with anice light spiciness as well. Fairly fruity (melons) which is also quite nice. Softly marshmallowy with a little bit of light cotton candy as well. There is a little bit of Saaz noble hoppiness. Pretty damn nice brew. I don’t know how 12% importer keep finding these really great, rustic examples, but they do.
