33cl bottle. Amber coloured beer with large creamy off white head. Slight hop and citrus in the aroma making a pleasant mix. Malt in the taste and again the citrus flavour.Drank at room temperature which i think helped.Ok session beer but nothing special.

Countbeer (4429) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2012
Draught: Small vast white creamy head on top of a light hazy orange colore beer. Smell malts, orange, yeast and hints of hop and yeast. Taste orange, tangerine, yeast, malts, pils malts, some hops and some barleys. Crispy but light and watery. Aftertaste of malts, light bitter, herbs, orange and light yeast notes. Low to medium carbo, watery mouthfeel, medium body and a bit thin and watery texture. Watery but ok.

Grumlig öl som påminner om persikojuice i utseendet. Lätt vitt skum. Doft av bröd, hö och viss maltsötma. Samma återkommer i smaken. En okej öl som inte sticker ut så mycket.

11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, dark fruit, and some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Something a little off here, but it’s not a bad beer overall.

smells musty, a bit phenolic w/some clove. Taste is very odd. A smoky, almost bacon like front that ends quickly and ends up being a pretty dry beer. At first, the flavor was alarming, but by the end I was enjoying it. Not what I think of when I think belgian beers, but hey it was interesting.

Sinceramente non mi ha convinto del tutto, è molto gradevole e godibile, ma mi manca un pò di carattere...

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - JUL 27, 2012
Nulla di eccezzionale ma nenche male etivissima, profumata, poco, un pochino più saporita, acidina ma non troppo e con un retrogusto che se ne va presto.

Blonde plutôt ambrée, trouble. Légére - 5.5%, correcte mais pas exceptionnelle.

Martinus (2818) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2012
Light hazy amber colour, off-white head. Fresh malty aroma, fruity, banana. Light sweet malty flavour, light sour touch. Malty finish, banana tones.
Refreshing, not too outspoken, rather nice for a speciale Belge.
