Bottle, 6.8%. OK fruity aroma, and a little farty. Cloudy yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour is mildly sweet, malty and slightly papery. But quite nice. Has a little sourness in the finish along with some bitterness and vegetable, also quite OK.

Proefballon (2) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2008 does not count
bier smaakt raar , volgens mij is deze niet goed raar gistsmaakje, volgens mij is het gistje niet helemaal fris, het zou prettig zijn al op het etiket zou staan wat er nu weer geexpirimenteerd is , de vorige was namelijk wel lekker, al met al wisselt dit bier sterk van smaak net als de andere van deze brouwerij.

mdachi (35) - Paderborn, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2007
Aroma: heavy hops and flowers. Appearance: orange and cloudy with big white head. Bottle has a big yeast depot. Flavor: starts with mild sweetness and fruity apricot; full but not too heavy body. Dry finish with a middle bitter end. Highly carbonized. Very fine brew while not that alcohol intensiv as others beers from Benelux.

Tap@BergsBierfestival. Light floral aroma. Cloudy, yellow, white head, good lace. Light sweet, light bitter, light floral. On the thin side. To me it was like a watered down american IPA because of the cacade hops used.
