COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Launched 2007. Retired 2011. Replaced with an annual release, starting in 2012, using a different hop each year.
Made with three kinds of hops: Styrian Goldings, Saaz and Amarillo. Dry hopped with more Styrian, and an extra dose of malts to hold up.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
750mL bottle, sent from robloc303 (thanks a lot, Rob), pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Nose is very oxidized bringing out mostly oxidation, Belgian yeast, and moderate spicy hops. Flavour reveals notes that are very oxidized and cardboardy, but not as bad as the nose, with mandarin oranges, Belgian yeast, spicy hops, and champagne. It’s not a disaster, but it’s way past its prime. You can tell this would be good when fresher - what a pity. Decent.

Cerveja de ótima aparência, sabor inconfundível e reteogosto agradável. Espuma pouco cremosa mas de ótimo sabor.

Yellow appearance with decent head. Strong hoppy citrus, lemons aroma, grassy notes. Well rounded in the mouth, overall a very good Belgian Pale Ale.

Benfi (566) - DENMARK - NOV 10, 2013
Light golden pour with tons of white head and a nice soapy looking retention. Nose of yeast, hops, and straw. Taste has a little hop bite but mostly yeast, bready malts and maybe a touch of citrus.

zwartjesbier (28) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
2010 bottle.Got it three Years ago,thanks bro. Drank the same year three years ago and Iiked it better three years ago. Don’t think it ages well. Aroma is grassy with a floral hint. appearance is a clear golden with a white head that leaves a nice lace in the glass. Taste is medium bitter with sweet malty undertone with a dry aftertaste. I can taste the high ABV 9,5%. Body is medium with a thin texture and lively carbonation

Bottle share at Borefts 2013, courtesy of Mr. Hangover. 2010 vintage. Poured cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet sourness. Medium body, gives the impression of being past it’s best, not as enjoyable as the two more recent vintages.

kermis (5733) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle shared at BBF13 thanks to Mrhangover. Pours cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. With the age the hops are gone from the aroma and replaced with a moldy, yeasty and caramel smell. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not one to age..

1st edition 75club bottle shared by Mr Hangover. Pours cloudy gold with a white head. Slightly musty, sweet aroma. Taste is sweet, with a bit of sourness. Don’t notice any hops, but it’s more balanced than the normal Dual.
