sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, BB 25/06/2014 de Willems. Gusher alert. Orangée clair, col épais crémeux beige. Arôme offre un fruité assez étrange avec cette impression de fermenté, fruits secs sur un soupçon d’épice. Palais tire vers un côté vieille levure et vieux caramel, malt de caractère pâle et pils très basique. Garde un profil léger biscuité presque céréale. Le houblon est léger sur une amertume modérée avec les 7% étant bien marqués. Garde un côté noble ponctué d’une épice légère.

brnandersen (1672) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2013
Draught at De Groote Witte Arend. Clear, deeper golden colour with a medium sized, dense white head. Fruity aroma with yeasts, caramel, oranges, rich malts, alcohol and hay. Taste is sweet. Medium to full body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry with a hearthy amount of pale malts. A bit "fat". However, still a nice beer.
