Bottle, 6.5% from De Proefbrouwerij. Vegetable, urine and cream aroma, not really unpleasant. Hazy golden colour, small white head. High carbonation. Vegetable flavour with some coriander, OK spiciness. Sourish hop finish. Again, not as bad as it sounds.

JoeinDahlem (1440) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2007
33cL at Delirium. Aroma is a bit sugary with some vanilla notes. Looks clear gold with not much white head. Sweetish beer with a mild kick of hops and a dry finish. Well-made blonde, might even give it another go.
