Ungstrup (29988) - 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 (10873) - 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 (4749) - 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 (5595) - 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 (2058) - 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 (8246) - Ursel, 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.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2002
A great breakfast beer. A bit sour.

Drinking this one right after getting out of bed, left almost no flavour in my mouth.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2002
Light amber coloured with a medium head. Lovely sweet fruity aroma. The taste is bitter, slightly sour dryish. Flat.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2004 My youth hostel in Diest had the name Den Drossaard. The picture from the label of the bottle also showed the hostel. It was nothing special. I think it was a bad idea to consume this at the breakfast.
