Kleurplaatje (85) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2014 Poured from a 33cl bottle BBE Dec 2014. Sparkling, a bit cloudy, golden beer with a nice foamy white head. Tastes hoppy in the beginning, but evolves into a bittersweet dry and malty aftertaste which lingers for quite a while. There is also a small notion of the ’warmishness’ of the alcohol, but that doesn’t last that long. It’s aromas are quite, yeasty and grainy and slightly citrus-like. Quite carbonated as well. Overall a pretty decent beer with quite an appealling appearance. Lovely beer for a nice summer day.

JorisPPattyn (8333) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2003
Pale yellow, a bit hazy. Beautiful dense white head, as whipped cream, going down lacy. Nose with grain, wheat, white candi sugar (? - isn't added says the lable). Very dry - sugar again! Peppery, bitterish Belgian-type hops (? - Hallertau, they say...) After some time, malt fills in with a certain sweetness. Dense, full mouthfeel. Surprising for a 5.7% beer. Blind, I would reckon this a Belgian tripel. I keep tasting and feeling white candi sugar, and a harsh bite I would normally connect with Challenger or Target... Strange. But undoubtedly very professionaly brewed.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2005 Cloudy orange, nice large white head. Smells very Praelish. Very yeasty and quite sweet, but the hoppy bitterness comes in better during the drink. Decent Kölsch, another enjoayble brew of this brewery.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle (London Drinker 06): Clear gold with a white head. Some mild spice and nice biscuity malts. A little yeasty, but a pleasant belgian style ale. Certainly didnt seem like a Kolsch to me!

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle, at London Drinker Beer Festival, March 2006. Pale gold colour. Solid perfumed hop and yeast aroma. The yeasty character continues on the palate. Good spicy hop smack on the finish. Perhaps a touch sweet. Like others, I was surprised to see this listed as a Kolsch.

HenrikSoegaard (11282) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2007
Bottle. Creamy white excelent mostly lasting head. Moderate malty and hopy aroma. Slightly yeasty and rich with fruity esters. Powerfull fruity moderate bitter flavor. Moderate finish. Alas very watery at the end. Creamy palate. This is a strange beer tasting just between a hefe and Belgian Ale. More yeasty that german Kölch.

Svesse (6854) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2009
(Bottle, In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 3 Aug 2009) Cloudy brownish yellow colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with dried apricots and citrus. Fruity, slightly malty taste with notes of apricots, citrus, tropical fruit, toasty grain and a mild bitterness. Medium body, balanced sweetness. Not exceptional, but tasty and nice.
