JorisPPattyn (7771) - Antwerpen, 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 (7347) - 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.

Svesse (6036) - 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.

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2010
Cask Stillage from the Jug at the GBBF, Earl’s Court 04/08/2010 Hoppy aroma. White head. Golden coloured hoppy and very pale with a hint of dryness in a lasting malt finish.

LordDrachen (115) - reggio emilia, ITALY - AUG 25, 2011
Intriguing drinkable beer. Strange connection between Benelux beers and Keller. Pale hazy yellow and average white head, with not very long persistence. Aroma is sweet honey-like malty with few herb and spiced hints. Sweet taste, with quite balanced bitterness. Medium long mouthfeel. Really good one for summer.

Hazy orange beer. Light thin white head. Crisp palate but turning creamy. Spirity and a little minerally as well. Light orange with a dash of lemon. Saison like malts just before the semi dry finish. Not bad at all and quite refreshing.
