77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Het Natuurhuis in Antwerp. BBF 03/2015. Faintly hazy golden with little white head. Nose is lemony, light sorbet, fruity, white sugar, apricot, sweet & fruity yeast,… Lemon sorbet taste with sweet & fruity yeast, white sugar, apricot, sweet white bread, sweet wheat, faint tang,… Nicely yeasty body. Pretty original & very yummy, like it even more than the non-Bio version which was def. not the case for Nostradamus.

McTapps (3031) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2013
Had some high hopes into this one and was really happy to open it, but what I got, was never ever that, what I expected. It has got a cloudy yellow-golden colour with low head and medium to thin body. Nose of hairspray or an old-school eldery women hair-saloon. Taste is as well of hairspray, coriander, fizzy hops and light Belgian yeast. Awfully the whole time -while finishing my glass- I had the feeling, that some of the staff at the brewery accidentally threw their cigarette into the beer tank and just fished it out. Not good.

MichaelAwesome (3031) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. One of the worst ever when it comes to aroma of aftertaste. Tobacco or cigarettes in the background kill any promising looks and when a strange chemical nose finishs it all up you know you have made a big mistake drinking that one. Be prepared !

Borresteijn (4410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2013
33cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele, ABV is 7.5%. Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma is quite sweet, coriander, lemon, sugar, ripe fruits, high Witbier-resemblance. Flavour is medium sweet, sugar, coreander, wheat, lots of fruits, light tangy, light bitter finish, dry. Medium-bodied. Tasty beer, different from what I expected.
