After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and oneven of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a flacky thick dark blond color and a light sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a fruity touch . This beer smells fruity.

mile (3810) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and mostly diminishing head. Malty and sweetish aroma, very fruity (pineapple, peaches), sweetish citrus hoppyness, light yeastiness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, fruity with light citrus hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, fruity, light hoppyness and yest. Nice aroma, but flavor lacks the hoppyness – more sweet and fruity than hoppy.

Quack-Duck (9120) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2011
bottle from Bierkoning. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Malty base, a touch of alcohol that adds spice, resiny-grassy hop flavours in the finish.

Draft @ Emelisse Oktoberfest. Hazy amber, medium tanned head. Aroma is roasted malt, some spices but mostly malt. Flavour is medium hop bitterness, quite malty. Thin palate, but it does linger on for quite a bit. Nice bitter.

JorisPPattyn (9471) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle claims 6.8%, rather than 6.4% Very good yellowish head, fed by lively carbonated orange beer with a faint haze. Creamy nose, bit spicy, spicy malts, faintly toasted. Even more spicy taste, pepper and rootspices, bitterish, on dry wholemeal pasta background. Bitter honey. Bitter chocolate warming up, yeastesters more obvious. Yet later, the bitterness finally acquires a hoppy (EU) streak. Medium bodied, quite slick; balance achieved in the palate. Nice beer, spicebitter instead of hopbitter, despite no spices used, apparently.

330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
7 Let this sit in the glass for several minutes, and you’ll be rewarded with a glorious peppery ginger aroma. I had the cruddier glass, Anna’s clearer glass lacked it, so presumably the yeast brought it, or she didn’t leave her glass alone as long.
3 Browny orange, small tight head.
7 Slight sludgy taste at first, but then again, I had the sludgier glass. Apart from that this is a spicy and nutty bitter, with only a touch of the ginger it promised. Certainly quite full, and with plenty of details.
3 Crisp, almost biting, palate, pleasant carbonation. Finish is a little mily, and pretty bitter. Some nuttiness in the late long finish.
13 Full and bitter, but not in a UK bitter sense. More like a bitter nutty belgian ale by an less-traditional-more-experimental brewer. OK, let’s call it Dutch bitter.

Hazy orange colored brew. Hoppy aroma. Flavor has floral hops, sweetness, grain. A bit creamy. Could use some more bitterness.
