19/XII/15 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 29/IV/17 (2015-1737)

Clear deep orange to red beer, creamy irregular off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet and sugary, some candy, forest fruit, bubble gum, cough syrup. MF: medium to light body. Taste: very malty, grains, hay, little bitter, sourish touch. Aftertaste: bit hoppy, malts, little metallic.

DwarfeD (2297) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015
25cl bottle at home. Somewhat pale orange / amber with a small white soapy head. Light to medium body with fizzy carbonation. Herbal sweet and bitter tones. Flowers, herbs, citrus and grass. Too much carbonation and too herbal for my taste.

Bozo_skeleton (892) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 1, 2015
Cuivrée, grosse carbo, collet epais et persistant, belle dentelle. Aromes pomme verte, épices et caramel. Saveurs plutot fruités et douce avec un sucre doux un peu trop présent. Tres courte et sans vraiment de relief

The_Osprey (5323) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (15588) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle split at the Centrum Hotel, Beersel, 20/11/15. Clear golden with a big ole egg shell white covering that retains well. 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 (309) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 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 carbonatie. 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 (7874) - 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.
