yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours hazy yellow with a dense and huge white head. Solid ginger and clove spiced aroma. Flavour holds the same solid spice notes to a mild caramel malt base and a mild sweetness. Ends rather herbal. Well crafted, but too spiced for my liking.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
Bottled. An unclear orange beer with a huge fluffy orange head. The aroma is quite strong with strong notes of citrus, medium notes of yeast and oranges, and lighter notes of wheat. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of oranges and lemon - which gives it an acidic edge, that makes it very refreshing, towards the end a spicy touch comes along with notes of cloves and nutmeg. The body is a bit thin especially considering the 7.5% ABV.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2006
Golden color, with the most classic and beautiful of the creamy Belgian heads. The aroma is peculiar, with some herbs (rosemary) to join the malt and coriander. Medium body structure, malt taste, softer than expected, and quite refreshing for a Belgian ale; very light herbs here as well and very light lemon peel. Consistent final. A solid blond strong Belgian ale, with a touch of originality.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2010
Bottle. The bottle was filled to the cap, and gushing when opened. It poured a hazy, golden-orange body with a diminishing off-white head, finger-thick. Belgo-sweet aroma with damp forest, some honey notes and a good dash of flowers. The flavor was herbal, sweet and fruity, with some honey. Fizzy, medium-bodied and warming. Herbal, honey-sweet finish. A decent herbal beer, but not my prefered style in any way. 100331
