Murky brown with a good head that quickly dissipates. Berries, apricot, plums, oak casks on the nose. Taste starts slightly sweet, flash of sourness all around the mouth and ends with bitterness. Leaves a bitterness with an earthy,peaty taste in the mouth. Very cool.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2012
Cloudy golden orange colour with a tight white head. The aroma has a nice bit of peppery character along with a soft wheaty bite. Some light floral hop notes in addition to a bit of light fruit. Melon and some clove along with a bit of lingering wheaty character. Slightly bitter with a touch of mint on the back. It’s pretty nice stuff.

Swaroga (1758) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2012
375ml. Hazy amber and brown with small and dirty/white head. Nose : bread like malts, banana bread. Fruity peach and mandarine like aromas. Pepper and some other spices. Sip : medium body with oily texture. Low to medium carbonation. Sweet cereal flavor from the start. It hits with peppery and fruits like banana and peach flavors. Well balanced. It has bitter hops to mingle with overall cereal flavor on the end but they are more peppery then bitter. I must say I really enjoy the body thickness unusual for this kind of beer. Extra points for that. Good one.

PotjeBier (1999) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2012
375 ml bottle. Cloudy amber color. Sticky, off white head.. Aroma’s: yeasty, fruity, somewhat malty sweet, hint of alcohol. Again, the yeast character is very reminiscent of Dupont. Flavor is lightly sweet (caramel) and somewhat bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes somewhat dry and rather bitter. Another lovely artisanal farmhouse beer.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2013
375ml bottle at BXL East (labeled as White Gold). Pours a hazy dark orange wsith huge, billowing, soapy off-white head that clings desperately to the glass. Aromas of fruity yeast, citrus and a bit of spice. Taste is fairly spicy (chicory, clove and coriander) and peppery, slightly bitter with a bit of sweeter malts and earth. Taste is bright and prickly on the palate. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy, but there’s a nice balance of all the different elements. Good stuff.

Juritsu (22) - - JAN 25, 2014
Pours a vibrant Amber, with very little head. Earthy malt aroma. Chicory taste is very clear, fresh, slightly sour, bitter taste, well rounded taste. Subtle aftertaste with a bit of alcohol.

CharlyBeer (118) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2014
Odore non molto invasivo, ma gusto splendido. Tipica birra belga. Favolosa. Intéressante farla riposare un po in cantina.

seynie (236) - Tienen, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
Nice yellow with good foam top. Lots of carbonation, almost got the cork in my eye... Calms down after a while though. The witloof is present, in the nose and the mouth. Tastes more of caramelised witloof though. Earth and leaves, witloof, yeast, candi sugar. Mostly bitter and sweet, but well balanced. Long finish.
