Marc (486) - Yokosuka, - JAN 25, 2008
Bready yeasty nose starts with a bit of coriander but is crept up on by a weird planty aroma. Orange body with a moderate white head. Fairly standard belgian, brown sugar, a bit of carmel, some doughy yeasts, rounded out with some bitter herbal hops. Finishes with grain and a slight bitterness.

Hazy golden color with light carbonation but still a thick white creamy head. Nose is fruity with some aroma’s of tea, peaches and honey. The taste is light bittersweet, fruity and yeasty.. Aftertaste of raisins. Easy drinker.

sebletitje (6594) - 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.
