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.

Poured at home (Dec ’11) from a large bottle (looked like a 750ml, but sure label said 1 litre?) into a tulip. Amber to orange/dark blond in colour with a big head of white foam, 2 fingers, which largely retained it’s presence througout drinking. Smelt of spice, hops, yeast. Not to sweet and a little hint of sour flavour to it. A good range of spices thrown in, cloves and cinnamon for sure! Good mouthfeel, nice and smooth on the palate.

Fra fat på brewpuben i Antwerpen 29 Apr 11. Gylden. Svak maltaroma. Lavt skum. Smaken søt og uten identitet. Litt fylde. 0 bitterhet.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2011
On draft at the brewery. Cloudy, golden body with a thick white head. Lightly fruity nose with some pepper and yeast. Alcohol aroma borders on fusel. Sweet, strawberry-ish flavor with a little vanilla and stronger alcohol. Light citrus peel. Medium body and fairly sweet with mild bitterness. Moderate carbonation. Sweet finish with some lingering alcohol. A decent little beer!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2011
On draught at Huisbrouwerij t’Pakhuis in Antwerp. Pours a cloudy blonde colour with a thick white head. Hoppy aroma with alcohol quite present. Aroma also of sweet candy sugar, higher alcohols, treacle and caramel. Quite fruity with flavours of caramel, cheesecake, white chocolate and candy sugar. Nice and chewy with mild carbonation and a long alcohol and pepper linger. Grassy hops also. Nicely warming and a little bitter but I prefer the blond and bruin.

yngwie (16518) - 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

Alkoholisch süßer, minimal (!) muffiger Geruch. Leichter, etwas süßer Antrunk (alkoholbedingt). Würzig süßer Mittelteil, angenehm leicht angesichts des Alkoholgehalts (der nich zu schmecken ist). Würzig, kräftig malziger Nachgeschmack mit angenehmem Hopfenanteil, minimal herb. Test vom 29.5.2007, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,11,11,12,-,11 - 11,36

Beer5000 (5939) - 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.
