I drank this together with the Guldenberg, my notes are a bit like a comparison between the two. Looks the same; The nose is quite a bit fresher, same malty notes, same aromas of fresh apple and pear, but in this one a huge amount of freshly cut grass and green asparagus backs it up; The bodies are very similar, but this one is again a bit fresher, it is also a bit more bitter and a bit more acidy, this one is not as flat as the Guldenberg, but still to flat though; They finishes very similar, but this one again a bit fresher: walnut peel (green), peel of fresh young apples, is a little more bitter as well. (The Guldenberg is from Nov. 2005 and the Vinens Verden – version from Marts 2006)

Dark golden hazy body, with a huge white head; Very pleasant super balanced soft nose of green fruits: ripe apples and in particular pear, the alcohol gives a slight warmth, a little fresh acidity gives freshness as notes of ripe grapefruit; Quite flat body, balanced with lots of fill; It finishes long, with a very pleasant bitterness appearing after some time, aromas becomes warmer with different malts and a lemony acidy freshness.

A hazy orange beer with only a rim of white head. The aroma is very lightly malty and hoppy. The flavor is very sweet with some notes of fruits and a bit of hop character. The hop character is not nearly as dominant as in other "green" hopped beers I’ve tried, but they where English, so a totally different style, this ofcourse makes a difference. I think this is just a bit better than the Guldenberg, but I’m not blown away by it.

The aroma is sweet malty and hoppy. The color is orange and it has a dense white head. The flavor is very malty sweet - too sweet for my taste and with no bitterness to give it balance. For me this is an average Belgian Strong ale.

Bottle: Pours with a hazy deep golden body and a fair white head, that is short lasting. The aroma is of citrus fruits and yeast. The flavour is rather sweet, with grapefruit, apricot and herps. It´s medium bodied. The finish is more dry. Crisp and enjoyable.

A fairly light beer; surprisingly considering it costs $12 for a 75 cl. Light hops in the aroma. Fairly earthy aroma and flavor, dirt, salt, and light hops; some flowers. Not bad at all, and it hides its high abv well.
