Very high, white head, as whipped egg-white, with some lacey rings over veiled yellow-golden beer. Véry spicy-herbal indeed. Root spices, galanga root, fennel and dry ginger powder. Overly spicy in a first instant, with anniseed and fennel, then reverting to a dry, dry-spicy, medicinal flavour, and pancake dough. Medium bodied. OK, on hàs to like spices...

Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt and spices especially coriander. The flavor is sweet matly with coriander being the strongest ingredient.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Bottle, 6.5%. OK bready aroma. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is fruity with a good shot of paper. A bit of vegetable in the finish. Sounds unpleasant, but is actually just a bit boring.

Commissioned by BLES and served at their Nationale Bierhappening of 2008. Spiced with no less than 14 spices selected by De Ryck’s brewmaster. Creamy, snow white head, yellowish blonde colour with faint greenish hue. Sweet and complex spiciness in the nose, obviously difficult to distinguish from one another, but I do suspect coriander, star aniseed and curaçao. Grainy, honeyish, some DMS in the aroma too, thin sweetish finish in which the spices also linger and few hops to balance the sweetness. May have been an interesting experiment with all those spices, but I didn’t care for it much. Less is more sometimes...
