Bottled (from thebelgianbeershop.com). A bit hazy yellowish golden colour with huge fluffy head. Aroma lace. Aroma is fruits, some earthy notes as well as herbal and yesty. Flavour is quite much the same with some grassyness and mild alcoholic sweetness added. Ends rather earthy and yeasty.

omhper (19372) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2009
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy pale golden, rocky head. Juicy citric nose. Dry, yet fruity. Elegant slender malt perfumed by citruc, sweaty grassy hops. There’s also almonds, honey and mild alcohol that gets more prominent underway. Like a dry, elegan mead, but well hopped and with lingering sweaty bitterness.

Draft at Bekeerde Suster. Light haze on this pale gold beer. Big frothy white head that dies away quite quickly. Crisp palate, a little dry. Sweet malt with a touch of caraway. Some hop bitterness in the finish but really not getting that much hop flavour, ironic considering it’s name!

At Beer Mania, Bruxelles
Hazy deep blond color, big head. The aroma has dry malt, some hop and spice, perfumy. Dryish mouthfeel, spicy malt flavor, good bitterness even if it doesn’t go too far from the Belgian tradition. In the final it seems that there is some more body, with also a very light touch of sweet liquorice. Pleasant.
