Thin muddy watery appa joose. Lightly sweet and generic fruity without much going on. Really this is not very special in any way. Generic belgian and kinda bad.

Bottle @ Odense Tasting Feb. 2014. Pours hazy golden with a creamy head. A bit of dust and yeast. Quite vinous. White wine and cellar. A tad too old im afraid. From Beer Planet Brussels..

Christian (10781) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
Odense drinking Belgian Beer in February. Golden with a lasting white head. Fruity and dusty aroma with some spicy, yeasty notes. Dryish fruity flavour with a pleasant bitter finish. A little dusty, perhaps to old, but no date visible

From WLVL. Have the fruitiness associate with a belgian but crisp and dry with a hop bite. Good. Serving: Bottle

BeerandBlues2 (9100) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy, citrus, and spicy hops, apple and pear esters, apricot and mango with biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, light malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-peach color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was dryish, somewhat tart and had notes of citric acid and pepper. The flavor was very dry, tart and chalky with notes of apricot,k nectarine and more chalk. Long dry chalk, citrus and apricot finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

PriorL (1279) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2014
33cl bottle. Had this laying around for quite some time already, was cellared properly, but probably not the best beer for aging. Expiration date is nowhere to be found on the label though... APPEARANCE: clear darker blond beer, nice stable off white head. NOSE: fruity, hoppy, some mango, coriander, little peppery. TASTE: quite bitter and dry. Especially in the aftertaste which turns out completely dry. Taste is rather fruity and nice but aftertaste comes out a little too strong for me. Decent brew, especially for it’s ABV!

Draught. Amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of apricots, citrus, yeast, and some faint barnyard funk. Medium bodied with a nice dry finish, very drinkable, very good.
