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.

Bottle into tulip, ít Arendsnest, Amsterdam (3/2008). Almost clear glowing copper with a bacterial-looking dusting of head in an Orval-like glass. Orval-like texture and slightly citrus fruit makes me wonder if this is a clone attempt. It doesnít have Orvalís spiciness or hops, or wonderfully light and balanced malt profile. Nice and juicy with somewhat dry dark figs in the middle. Smells of gentle spices, sweetness, and an accent of piney sharpness. Solid. Iím surprised it isnít rated more highly than a 2.93.

MiP (15272) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle, 6.5%. Hazy chestnut colour, tiny floaties and a small head. The flavour is subtle, malt and pepper. A little sour. Not very interesting.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2006
Monotone orange-amber beer with a off white quick disappearing head. This beer has almost no aroma. The taste is malty and is slight duff. You can notice some barnyard accents and hints of nutmegg. In the finale there are hints of bitter nutpeel, peache-pit and an unplesant bitterness of hops.
