Yellow, light golden coloured. Ok sized head, but colapses a bit to quick for sure. Nice sticking to the glass. Smell is unpleasant spices. malts, yeast. Don’t like the smell. Taste is about the same, the spices used are just not my thing at all. More to put into medicins then into beer I think.

Helder met stevig schuim. Goede afdronk met specifieke nasmaak. Uniek recept met bioproducten. Goed eerlijk bier.

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"A distinctly herbal, floral and slightly sweet aroma and flavor. Slightly bitter finish on this. Belgian blonde/ triple base, abv doesn’t show at all. Pretty good. Refreshing, complex, unique

Trappist1 (537) - Diest, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2014
From tap with Brewer. Blond color, misty with off-white head. Nose has some Malts, yeast, sugar, spices, cookies. Taste is way overdone in the spices. Finish is bitter, even a bit fry. Creamy finish.

nealblind (896) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Gold pour some foamy film. Aroma of mild herbs thyme sage. Tastes thyme, honey, sweet, bitter finish. Like the bog myrtle - gold base is underwhelming.

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Commissioned beer spiced with bog myrtle, which was commonly used ages ago. Has received a loyal following throughout the years especially among metalheads, I have no idea why. Snow white head, misty golden blonde, yellowish colour. Very sweetish spicy aroma from the bog myrtle, accents of banana, caramel, cinnamon; fruity taste with powerful spiciness coming up quickly, sweetish, almost medicinal, herbal hops in the end. A beer that separates itself from most others and that in itself is at least interesting.

mikske79 (1247) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 7, 2014
Dit is nu eens een bier met een heel uitgesproken smaak. Veel mensen zal dit niet bevallen, maar ik vind het super. Wel niet voor heel de avond te drinken, maar zalig voor 1 te drinken.

77ships (4211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
33 cl. bottle split with Kogymo. Procured @ Willems. Clear apple golden with basically no head. Nose is intensly herbal, herbal garden, lots of what I assume is Bog Myrthel, very typical. Carbonation is totally out of control, this beer just explodes in your mouth once you take a sip, weird and not beneficial in any way. Taste is same odd bitter herbal, plant-like nature with aspirin & lousy BE slightly boozy apple juice & sweetener taste, medicinal almost in its herbal nature. Okay, somewhat interesting but the base & the overall taste are not really my thing.
