Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has notes of citrus, malt, and yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, yeast, and citrus, leading to a dry finish.

Jerre (2680) - Waregem, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2009

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
JorisPPattyn (7912) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2009
Very dense, creamy head over red-foxy beer, well-carbonated. Sweetish, roasted malts nose, with flowery/fruity notes, as from rosehips. Slightly oxydized, bit roasted, sweet-sourish, and again flowery; spiced with obvious coriander. Light body, lightly spritzy. It would even be refreshing with just a tad less restsugars. Well - yes. God knows where it was brewed - this one in Ecaussinnes, but since then?

mirjukka (752) - LOHJA, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2009
bottle ? old note from One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009 hazy amber small white head lacing fruity berries more sweetness than sour medium body smooth. Just wondering how this might taste after maturing year or two.

FatPhil (9358) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 4, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 Keg (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009) (6:3:7:4:14=3.4)
Turbid, quite offputting, brief head. Quite sweet grainy and roasty aroma. Lovely full palate, thick, sweet, fruity, and malty. Very pleasant, well balanced. Would like to try it slightly further away from the dregs at the bottom of the keg.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Sweet malty body, a bit sticky and smooth. Yeasty sticky malts. Messy for a belgian. Some floral aspects, but they can’t save it.
