2/I/14 - 33cl bottle from Zottegems Bierfestival @ home - BB: VIII/2015 (2014-10)

Clear blond beer, creamy irregular head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of orange peel, prety spicy, honey, sugary, some coriander, bit dusty. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of coriander, lots of orange peel, some citrus, very spicy, nice bitterness. Aftertaste: pretty hoppy, grassy, fruity notes, little sweet, honey, orange peel. Well done, I say. Don’t know if it was this batch in particular, but I really liked this beer.

The bottle was sent to me by Strykzone in a trade Pours cloudy gold with a good robust foamy white head and good lacing rings. Nose of fruit and yeast with spices. Medium in body with a lively and pleasant mouthfeel. The flavor is full of ripe fruit and the finish is slightly sour. Very tasty and nice to drink..

sebletitje (9073) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2012
33cl bottle at De Pikardijn. Appears to be brewed in honour of a local Zottegem folk hero. Rest of the beer is showed as brewed at DeGraal, no idea where this one is brewed. Dorée brumeuse, col blanc épais. Arôme est houblonné avec ce bouquet de levure présentant un côté agréable rappelant presque le miel. Le tout reste dans cette lignée très belge sur note de grains. En bouche, houblonnée léger côté doux-amer. Levure et carbonation moyenne pour un profile grains restant assez sec. Au final, le tout reste très dans la norme, houblon typique en amertume avec une levure rappelant une bière d’abbaye.

33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, thanks Hanniku!
Fresh, soapy aroma has lot of citrus and hints of grain. Flavour has loads of citrus and it has some harsh bitterness. A decent and drinkable one, but would not buy again.

Bottle. Murky gold with a moderate, foamy white head. Aroma is rather grainy and yeasty with soft grassy and floral notes, dried fruit and malt. Taste is also rather grainy with wheat and cereal, malt notes, light grassy hops, dried fruit and light floral notes. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more grains, cereal, sweet malt, light caramel, dried fruit, dusty yeast, grassy notes and dried flowers.
