77ships (4545) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2012
33 cl. bottle @ Kulminator // no clear indication of age but given the mould on the label & taste, it is probably not a recent one, I speculate that this is about 3 yrs old // hazy amber with a decent, solid off-white head // this has a very heavy yoghurt thing going on, on the nose, lots of yoghurt yeast, some barnyard & spices here as well // taste is dominated as well by yoghurt yeast, highly doubt that this was part of the original flavour profile, spices, Belgian yeast, bitter cloudberries, spices, touch barnyard & dash of booze in the back // carb. going touch softer, yoghurt yeast heavy body // agreable

Sourish aroma has lots of elderflower and some other spices too. Dry flavour is rather spicy. A bit saison-like and bitter in a bad way. Drinkable but not very nice though.
