MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2009
(33cl bottle) Hazy, amber coloured hue with many nasty and ugly floaties and a mid-sized, slightly tanned foamy head. Sweet and yeasty, slightly toasted malty aroma with notes of candy and a vinous fruity touch. Light-sweet flavour with a tinge of acidity, light to medium bodied with a fizzy carbonation. Dusty-yeasty, minimal toasted malty and slightly fruity taste; finishes slightly fruity and fizzy with a touch of vinegar. Not a pleasure (23.III.09).

piscator34 (1946) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 26, 2008
Bottled sample aquired via lubiere. Amber in colour with medium to strong carbonation. The aromas are somewhat saison-like, with notes of hay, marshmallow, and lemon. Flavors are of pale malts, grassy and earthy hops, thyme, mint, and kosher salt. Light bodied, and hides its alcohol well. Quite drinkable, but with loads of character too. Surprisingly good, considering its low ratings.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2008
Bottle at Ons te Huis, Diest. Pours amber with a steady offwhite head. Fruity aroma. Maybe a bit too sweet and fruity chewing gum. Still drinkable, though not a favourite.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2007
Pours a cloudy rusty amber color with lots of chunks floating and a medium, bubbly, offwhite head. The aroma has candy sweetness with fruityness akin to peaches or apricots and spices, interesting. The flavor doeasn’t have anything special or amazing but the mix of peaches/apricots, yeast, spices and candy sweetness is interesting, there’s a sense of balance between these elements that prevent this beer from being unpleasant. The body is medium with a smooth, almost creamy texture with a lively carbonation that provides a little push to the flavor. The more sips I have of this beer the more I like it, it’s very surprising since I don’t like this brewery.
