08/01/2011 - 30cl bottle @ home (2011-9) Thanks to George for the bottle!

Dark orange to amber coloured beer, little cloudy. White head dissipates immediately after pouring. Aroma: caramel, ripe fruits, spices, roasted malts, hops. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: hops and citrus fruits, a little sweet malts. Aftertaste: citrus, not too much hops. Simple yet more complex then I would have imagined. This brewery has surprised me for the second time (first time was with the Zondebok).

Bottle at Arendsnest in Amsterdam, November 2010. Slightly hazy dark orange with sediments. Small white head. Aroma of malt and spices. Did not feel much vanilla or honey in the taste. Drinkable but did not taste that much.

Slight hazy amber pour, large slightly tanned head. Aroma of fruit, mostly sour apple. Flavour is some dry bitterness with a faint sweaty fruity something. Meh.

Abio (1831) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle at home. Smells like a mixture of pilsener with milk. Amber coloured, nice head, but won’t hold to long. Sour taste, with some honey and vanilla. Once in a lifetime...

yespr (38505) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2009
30 cL bottle, courtesy of fonefan. Pours hazy dark orange with yeast sediments, shor lived and white head. Aroma is mild fruity, light acidic, phenolic and yeasty. Mild fruity, vague metallic and yeasty flavoured. Light caramelish note. Bitter and slight acidic flavoured into the finish. Lasting fruity phenolic note.

DKthe13 (56) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2009
Bottle 30 cl 09-2010. Strange colour with a bit of yeasty smell. Don’t smell a lot of hops or malts. The taste is full of carbondioxide, and it is impossible to taste anything. Not much of a finish (full of water). Quite original though, i love arjoseph’d comment that it’s a copy of orval. Indeed this is also strange and new, but this isnt tasty imo.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle 30cl. Pours a clear golden/orange colour with a small, not lasting head and good carbonation. Yeasty fruity scent, a bit vague but very nicely balanced nonetheless. Taste is a bit empty, fruity, sure, but not much else there.

Bottle at Arendsnest. Kudos to Halve Maan for the very cool Martini glas this was served in. Red amber body with thinnish head. Toasty nose. Very prickly mouthfeel that made it hard to rate. Taste of corn, hops and yeast. I found the taste a bit flat-wanting. But different beer for sure.
