Brown; yeasty, spicy aroma with sweet malt, brown bread; taste is more of the same, on the sweet side, perhaps some treacle; I found myself enjoying this, although I did fall asleep whilst drinking it! Woke up wanting more; writing up these notes two weeks after the event I vaguely recall it reminding me of alchoholic cola, which would be a concept Iíd definitely support.

kraddel (2730) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle Pours dark amber, but for a beer that is actually called í brown í as the name, this is too light . Small white head Smell is a bit sweet... Taste is very thin, metallic , sugary but not too sweet, and so unintence .. Medicinal ...

Benzai (7225) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Clear sort of dimmed, matt red color, small off-white to beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell sourness, green apple, sour fruits. Tastes almost the same: sourness, sour fruits, some sugar and a bit weird. Like Blondje this is just not what I like or itís a bad bottle.
