golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle, thanks to BBG. Dark blond / orange pour with nice white head. Aroma of spices, some bubblegum, pale belgian malt, and a little bready / pilsner like malt. Flavor is doughy malt, bubblegum, somewhat sweet from the pale belgian malt, but nice spicing also. It’s a tiny bit medicinal, but otherwise good. Solid yeast in the back and finish.

Bontus (695) - Flanders, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle from Deca services. Pours murky brown with a beige head. Aroma is very yeasty, dough, bread, also a hint of liquorice. Mouth feel a bit too carbonated and had yeast dominating the aftertaste too much. Will drink an aged one next year, guess it will be alot better. (3.2) rerate: Bottles now 7 months old and much better. Carbonation and yeasts milder and flavors more balanced. Liquorice and molasses upfront. Silky palate. (3.5)
