UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Sampled @ RB Danish Summer Gathering 2013 day 2, Ulfborg. Exploding out of the bottle. Hazy yellow color, medium sized off-white head. Aroma is weird and not nice but I can’t describe it. Taste lightly malts, lightly some fruitpeel and a slight bitter finish. Average body and carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (8897) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2013
Medium, quite dense, off-white head over hazy yellow-orange beer, lively carbonated and some lace. Bit fruity nose, caramel wafers, faintly garden weeds, and lots of sweet malts. Bitterish flavour, but with a very consequent malty underbuilt. Unfortunately, the bitterness remains rather raw, indifferent, vegetable. There’s quite a bit of oxydation there too, difficult to blame malts or hops specifically. Retronasal, soy oil, oriental marinade. Slightly burning MF, hops are a tad agressive, quite slick, medium bodied. Some balance achieved, but not very distinctive beer. Wondering what the exact goal had been.
