Bottle brown, 330 ml
Appearance: Pours hazy - yeasty in body texture, very mild carbonation, body colour is honey like, deep shiny golden, even oily but more pale than ’La Trappe Tripel’. Head is initially small, slightly off - white, foamy and quite quickly decreasing and disappearing, there in no visible lacing especially due to rather not distinctive head in that kind of beer.
Aroma: Very gentle orangy, orange peal, refreshing, dlightly yeasty, white wine grapes, white table wine, mild sweetness, some notes of good quality grains, wheat, white bread, fresh bakary.
Flavour: Grainy, white bread, wheat, generally more towards grains and maltyness with bitter hoppyness on palate and moderate hoppy nose, some minerality in nose and accidity on palate. Alcohol is perfectly hidden as for auch a pale blond Belgian ale. Reduced dramatically in its fruityness as compared to Dubbel, Tripel and Quadrupel. Finish duration is long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is dry especially towards finish palate and aftertaste becomes dry, carbonation on palate is dry, finish feel ich chalky, flour, grainy with gentle and positively nice alcoholic warmth.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2008
50 cl bottle in clay. Very decorative and smokin when popped. Golden body and a white head that fates away instantly which turns the look into something similar to apple-cider.. bummer. The nose is fruity and citrus-like with yeasty notes. The palate is sparkling and round. The taste is buttery with citrus-notes and toffee. The finish is medium lasting. Not very interesting

KDorgan12 (169) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle-Memphis. Shallow, temperary head, surprised at the lack of carbonation in the style. The body was full with a lasting sweetness. An enjoyable brew but not indicative of the style.

Monkeypower (172) - Odense C, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2008

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2008
75cl bottle from Beverage Castle (Tampa, FL). Pours a hazy dark dark amber color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, honey, notes of brandy, possibly some sweet ripe fruit. Flavor is similar to the aroma: sweet malt, honey, sour ripe fruit and hints of spice. Notes of yeast and sweet mustiness are present as well. This appears to be an older bottle judging by dated label and cork condition.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 27, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 Bottled 33cl. Caramel, banana and white pepper in the nose. Yeasty taste. Sour. Hints of white pepper, lemon peel, caramel and banana. Spicy. Lemon and melissa in the finish. Additional comment: Definately poor. The score stays - unpleasant finish. Dissapointing. Too much banana showing up.
