Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 18, 2005
Rating La Trappe Enkel, vintage 1994. 33 cl bottle pours clear amber with a smalli head. All the yeast is compacted on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is overripe fruits. Taste is thin to medium bodied with some figs, apples and soggy cardboard. Thats not a bad thing, as I think this aged nicely.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 10, 2005
Konings gift pack poured into a Konings glass. Pour is a honey amber with a light head. Well balanced aroma of clove/honey and some fruit. Overall taste is very smooth and sweet with spices mentioned in smell. A little fuzzy and warm. Though not a fantastic voyage, its definately still, a smoothe rideeee.

this was the second of several de koningshoeven beer we sampled at the arendnest in amsterdam....fuckn splendid place. you can get a sampler of six beer that are served in a wooden box with a side of water and cracker to clean the palate. great idea with so many beers to try. this one is golden brown haze with a tight tan head. banana and spice nose...pushes the yeast feel up with a light bodied fruit wheat character. pretty average.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2005
Pours an attractive hazy golden color with a thin white head that leaves decent lacing on the glass. Inviting aroma of spice, fruits(citrus and melon) and yeast. The flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma, fruits, spices and yeast but it’s less powerfull, I think that the carbonation level is too high, it hides the flavor. Light body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. All in all, it’s a decent beer but the flavor is a letdown.

Marko (4068) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 20, 2005
Finally got to taste this one. Fluffy, rapidly disappearing head. Orange/gold color - looks exactly like honey. Fruity/malty aroma. Tastes great, again, like honey, very malty. Not much hops, but I certainly wasn’t missing them much. Couldn’t detect spices really, but I do have a bit of a cold. Quite good.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2005
Pours with very little head. Fruity aroma is overpowered by yeast. Light copper/dark amber color. Not much in the way of flavor. Decent mouthfeel. Okay. Cheers!
