omhper (19336) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
Bottled, thanks Bov! Clear amber, rich head. Metallic blueberry aroma. Sweet with clean, oily mouthfeel and medium body. Fruity with treacle and marzipan, notes of boiled vegetables. Syrupy finish with banana and resin. A poorly brewed belgian ale is not much better than a poorly brewed pale lager.

Clear bright amber beer with a little white head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Fine carbonation. Smooth light malts with a touch of cream. Light tripel like fruitiness. Light sweet floral notes. Whisper of spice. Finishes neutral. Pretty drinkable.

Amber color with medium sized compact head. Controversial aroma, there is some nice and spicy Belgian yeast, but also some stale water. Lean mouthfeel, too much carbonated, with some sweetness, and a bad vegetables taste; ordinary bitterness; some fusels in the end.
Bad.

Bottle @ Den Belgiske Ølmand. Pours cloudy dark golden with a White head. Nose is inviting. Overripe fruit, banana, orange and a bit of yeast. Flavor is maaaad metallic. Extreme. I couldnt drink it. Smooth and full bodied.

harrisoni (13632) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle from GBBF 2013 and drunk at home. Clear amber with lasting beige head. Belgian yeast aroma. But a bit metallic. It’s a basic plastic Belgian ale. Compared with a couple of Italian beers I’ve had with Belgian yeasts in the past few days, this is just so lacking in character it’s almost untrue. Ok, just. But the esters are like kiddie Fruit Salad chews. Um, I was expecting better. This is mass produced, dumbed down and lacking character.
