sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010
(Bottled) Hazy yellow with a small, white and lacy head. Very fresh lemongrass-vegetably aroma with garlic and spices, maybe curry also. And white meat(!) - very unique. Flavor is ginger-curry-spicy with slightly earthy pale malt. Medium body, slightly foamy carbonation. A very unique beer, the first one ever that smelled and tasted like white, spicy meat drowned in Belgian Triple and water. I like. 4235

19/III/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 5/X/13 (2013-256)

Clear blond to light orange beer, big irregular white head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet and sugary, very fruity, peaches, sweet malts, hint of citrus. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, quite some citrus, bitter hops, grassy, still very fruity overall. Aftertaste: bitter, grassy hops, some citrus, fruity again, honey like sweetness, bit medicinal bitterness in the end, pretty decent. Very surprised with the low ratings here...

ansjelaah (1229) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2012
Gedronken in Buitenlust, heeft een pilsachtige kleur, geel en helder met een witte schuimkraag. Ruikt kruidig en zoet. Smaakt een beetje fruitig, hoppig,

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2014
Dorée claire, effervescence moyenne-faible, col blanc fin. Maltée au départ, elle développe un petit côté fruité-miellé et une légère amertume à la fois houblonnée et herbeuse qui la rendent plutôt sympathique.

thewolf (11113) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels.
Pours hazy, pale yellow with a nice, big, creamy, white head. Super lacings. Aroma is sweet, malty, light wheat. Medium carbonation, fine light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, wheat, light grainy, a hint of sweet ginger, elderflower. Very fresh and drinkable but a tad on the sweet side.

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2011
Pale golden beer, with a pillowy white head, though rather quickly receding to some floating fluffs of foam. Malty aroma, yeasty, notes of spices, fennel, pepper and light paprika. Nose is resembling a good Belgian Tripel. Flavour is nicely malty, fruity, quite hoppy. Also reminding of a Belgian tripel. Some anis. Rather sweet, especially when the initial flavours subdue.
I was rather surprised by this beer, it seems a very decent and balanced brew, even though it contains seitan, herbs and cane sugar. Only flaws seem that the cane sugar sweetness is a bit too hard and unbalanced at times, and the beer leaves a rather prickly feeling on the tongue.
(from 33cL bottle)

PotjeBier (1583) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2011
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a golden color, a bit hazy, with a white head that lasts throughout. Aroma’s of candy sugar, some sweet fruit, hints of spices and hopbitterness. Flavor is slightly sweet. Body is on the thin side. Mild bitterness in the finish. I expected a horribly herbal/spicy beer, but this is actually quite a pleasant blond beer, albeit not very special.
