Originally created by a Flander’s home-brewer, this spiced amber ale is rather hoppy with a soft body.

The_Osprey (4193) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle share at Hotel Centrum, Beersel. Dark amber orange, still, foamy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is apple, vanilla biscuits, cask. Quite nice. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is vanilla, biscuit, apple, bubblegum. Has a dry finish but it’s tangy sweet up to that point. Decent.

Nose is light spice, yeast esters, bread, trace of ginger, light herbal, dark fruit flash. Taste comprises sweet malt, caramel, candied fruit peel, sweet, light ginger. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent for style.

Batavi (216) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2015
Fles 25 cl. uitgeschonken in Sint Crispijn bierglas. Oranje amberkleurig licht troebel bier met een flinke licht beige schuimkraag die zich ook weer snel terugtrekt. Kruidig en fruitig aroma met tonen van Belgische gist, koriander, peper, perzik en citrusfruit. Het smaakpallet is zacht zoet, kruidig en licht zurig. Tonen van karamel, steenvruchten, citrusfruit en verschillende specerijen waaronder koriander, zoethout en witte peper, met een bittere bite in de afdronk. Body is waterig tot licht romig met een hoge carbonisatie. Geen verkeerd bier, maar ook niet echt memorabel, er zijn echter veel betere Belgische bieren op de markt verkrijgbaar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not bad, but definitely on the sweet side. Crisp and medium bodied. Bready and sticky.

laiti (7743) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2015
25 cl bottle @ Take One, Maastricht. Aroma has toffee, apricot and sweet malt. Flavour has toffee, apricot. Foamy and somewhat sticky palate. Sweet toffee overdose but drinkability is still ok. Belgian yeast is clearly present.

Hamirubi (365) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2015
25cl. bottle, drank at home. Never had a glass bottle that was filled to the very top of the bottle. This yeasty beer - which I saved more than two years after its shelf life (10/2012) - has some citrus aromas, but they aren’t pronounced at all. The appearance is very vividly, with lots of carbonization. Great peach, orangy color. The white-brown foam is vast at the start and fades away slowly. A promissing start, but besides from an excellent refressing taste - light sweet, light bitter - it has a very abrupt ending. I’m only left behind with some bitter hints in the throat. Nothing spectacular, yet it still makes for a good drink.

Ambrée claire, effervescence moyenne mais trop pétillante, col beige crémeux et aéré. Principalement maltée, caramel, légèrement fruitée, métallique, aqueuse, un peu sèche. Bof...
