oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Bottled. Slightly hazy amber colour with huge fluffy off-white head. Aroma is big time Amarillo with some yeast and spices along with it. Flavour is quite much the same along with tropical fruits. Very wellbalanced, and also easy to drink brew, considering the ABV, which doesn’t show too much.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2009 2009-06-01, corked bottle, 8-5-8-4-17=42
Dark amber color, hazy; big creamy head. The aroma is light, spicy, a bit cheesy, a bit fruity; mild but very nice. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, good malt flavor, with a Belgian touch, good fruity hoppiness, strong bitterness. Even if 1 year old, it’s very interesting and excellent.

2008-05-16, draught at Ølfestival 2008, Århus, 7-4-8-5-15=39
Cloudy amber color. The first beer that comes to my mind is t’Smisje Double IPA: a Strong Belgian Ale (from the yeast) combined with strong and American hops. Nice aroma, but milder than an american IIPA, with a touch of vanilla and cream. Good body strength, the strong malty flavor is corrected by the Belgian yeast; it has a good hopping, aromatic and resiny. Very good.

Sample at Aarhus beerfestival. Nice head with ok duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich with hops and flowers and are nicely balanced with a sugary sweetness. Bitter finish.
