The proud piece of our brewery! Lightly amber coloured beer of 8,3% alc.vol. At the tasting of the first brewery, a beer expert noticed: "This is an amazing pint!" (In Atwerpener dialect: "Da’s een bangelijk’ goei pint!"). And so the name was found.

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. A clear one, golden in color and with a finger-thick white head. Fruity, sugary and a bit alcoholic on the nose. Hints of blackcurrant and redcurrant. Some pale malts. The flavor has a bit too much white sugar and alcohol. Pale malts as well. Medium body. A decent one, but too sweet and warming. 110429

Beer5000 (5323) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2011
On tap at the brewpub (Pitcher). Clear golden body with a big, creamy white head. Aroma is fruity and yeast with a hint of canned vegetables. Flavor is sweet, light malty, some caramel, fruity, spicy, yeast and a bit metallic. Kinda drinkable but nothing really special and frankly a bit “too much” after a while. The alcohol is quite hidden.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2011
250ml poured from tap at the brewhouse. Almost clear golden body. Naked surface. A kind of perfumed aroma of pears. Pears and dried fruits in the taste profile followed by an ending that has got slightly metallic alcohol touch. So and so (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).

27/02/2011 - on tap @ ’t Pakhuis (2011-72)

Clear golden to amber coloured beer, white creamy head, stable and adhesive. Aroma: orange peel, yeast, spices, on warming up the alcohol is more present as is a certain sweetness. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: hops, citrus, bit malty, spices. Aftertaste: hops, citrus and orange peel, a bit metallic in the cheeks when cold, this gets better on warming up.
Note:As with the brown beer, it is served way too cold from tap. Probably around 3 to 4 °C. Warming up the glass with both hands is strongly advised!

esox (1214) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2010
Brewery tap. Crystal clear, hay-coloured beer with medium-sized and a bit soapy head. The aroma is quite malty, wheaty, sliglty fruity (banana) and spicy. Rather hoppyish finsih with some alcohol. The flavor is sweetish and caramelly, medium bitter and somewhat alcoholic. Quite obvious spiciness. The palate is medium bodied, slightly sticky and alcoholic. Overall a quite robus and too alcohol beer, but it has some nice fruity and spicy elements.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2009
On tap@the brewery. Huge lasting platina blond foamy head. Pale amber colored body. A fresh yeasty scent at first, then whiffs of a candy-like fruityness. Notes of flowers (jasmin) and perfume. Fresh orangey fruit flavor, medium sweet with some mild caramellish malts. Mild bitterness. Strong body. Nice warm and creamy mouthfeel. Tasty and well rounded.
