bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 9, 2005
Bought at Fedici, Diest. The building on the lable is Den Drossaard in Diest, the former youth hostel were I have a have a summer job each year. The beer is dark amber, clearly unfiltered. Aroma of malts and dried fruits, raisin, yeast, clearly alcoholic. Complex flavour with subtle fruitiness and sourness.

Otje (677) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2005
why does the label state it’s brewed by brewery Duysters? labelbeer from Huyghe? pours amber colored with a bubbly big head which disappeares quickly. smells fruity, yeasty and sweet. taste: sweetish, caramel, fruity and alcoholic followed by a nice hopbitter. finishes dry, bitter and long with a slight cardboard taste. medium bodied, fizzy co2. not bad.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Amber coloured with a considerable head. Very complex with an initial sweetness being substituted by hoppiness only to finish slightly sour. Notes of fruit, yeast and caramel - in no particular order. OK, but a bit confusing. 100398

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
A dark amber beer with a huge light orange head. The aroma is very yeasty, but also with notes of caramel and coriander. The flavor is thin, containing hints of caramel, yeast, leading to a dry finish, where the alcohol gives a slight burn.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2004
Orange and amber color, slightly hazy. Caramel and cinnamon aroma. Thinnish caramelly flavor. Apple and melon, some alcohol. Hints of cinnamon, rosebuds. Flowery. One of the better Duysters beers, which isn't too difficult.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2003
Another great Duysters brew! Malty, sweet aroma with fruits. Orange, cloudy coloured. Nice head. Taste is sweet, malty, fruity and some honey. Bit sharp in the end.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2003
Orange nutbrown color, medium/large head, diminished to a short lasting head. Some debris floating around. Aroma is caramel malty, candy sugar, fruity also. Sweet malty taste, caramelly. Again a very nice brew by Duysters.

jerohen (1975) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2003
Bottled. Alicante (Spain) was the least likely place i thought to find this excellent Belgian, but i did. Best beer of my holiday in Spain. :-)

JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2003
Clear amber; creamy head, 5cm. Sweet-malty nose, alcohol. Freshly baked cake, and somehow bitter nose. Taste is delicate sweet with outspoken honey-arome and some restrained acidity. Very nice balance. Very light mouthfeel - certainly from a 7% beer. Bitterness from the nose has gone. Some oxidation (biscuit- taste) in the aftertaste. A delicate beer with a delicate balance - not something for the die-hard hopheads amongst us.
