Bottle. Cloudy golden yellow, large fluffy white head. Aroma of bog myrtle. No, Iím kidding, I donít even know what a bog myrtle is, let alone why you would put it in a beer. Anyway, this one tastes like hay with moderate spice, decent body and a bitter finish. Drinkable.
Addendum: I guess bog myrtle was an ingredient of gruut, in the medieval non-hop brew. So itís the popeís fault that itís in my beer :-)

This beer poured out with a tall white frothy head. Foggier then most Belgium styles I think. Rich taste and a creamy carbonation makes for a delicate palate. Good lacing around the glass the whole time. Has a strong aroma of honey suckles.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Clear gold with white head. Well, the old Bog Myrtle flavour then, must be the 3rd of these over the years. Canít say that I noticed it that much, the beer was crisp, lemony, a tad sweetish with a Belgian yeasty spiciness. A pretty decent beer overall.

Got this from a organic supermarket in Antwerp. This is a beer made/trough natuurpunt (a organisation welfare of nature and animals in Flanders).
This beer, looks very nice. Golden colour, hazy, nice froppy head. Nice floral smell, with a small hint of a sweet hops. Flavore is very herbal, soft with a slide of bitter aftertast. texture kinda biscuity. Very easy drinkable, very nice :-)

On tap at Blue Dog. Pours a clear straw yellow color with white head. Aroma of spice, orange, and cereal. Flavor is largely citrus with spice and a cereal finish. Okay beer.

Stubby boy at Bar Jules, SF. Bog myrtle? Holy shit, itís like Iím doing alchemy in the Elder Scrolls. Anyways, novelty ingredient aside this was a tough beer to get through. Nice straw gold pour, and I had hopes (I admit being enticed by the Proef) that this would be a fine dry Belgian strong to complement the excellent food. But no, it was a weird autumnal extract kind of brew, with an overpowering syrupy element at its core that made it halfway to mead but without the merits of either good mead or good ale.
