oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sour fruits, sour wood and sweet caramel. Also some alcohol. Flavour is spicy, earthy and caramelly. If sampled in a blindtasting I would probably guess it’s Belgian...

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Vintage 2008, batch 11/08, 3 years old
Beautiful light amber color, hazy; medium sized head, although there was a high pressure in the bottle. The aroma is interesting, a bit puckery; there is some malt, light fruitiness, very light herbs and cabbage. Lean body, but round mouthfeel; there is some residual sweetness that makes it pleasant to drink, with light malt flavor and sage; there is also a light fruity touch (peaches). Correct bitterness. Very well balanced and still fresh.

Cloudy amber beer. Soft to semi dry palate. Moderate carbonation. Wheaty malt with some orangey hop that doesn’t bite at all. A little herb bitterness underlying. Finishes soft and dry. Not bad.

harrisoni (12660) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle from GBBF 2013 and drunk at home. Is this a Belgian Ale? Yes it is! Wow I guessed a style! One of my favourite games on this site. I drink the beer, decide the style and then see if RB agrees. Fairly generic Belgian Ale, some hop, some esters, some malt, some sweetness. Not very exciting, but utterly fine.
