JorisPPattyn (8659) - Ursel, 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?

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.

mjs (5467) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2009
(Draugt at One Pint Pub, Helsinki, on 2009-03-13) Dark orange and cloudy. Medium sized white head. Malts, yeast and frutiness in aroma. Full bodied and dryish palate with medium carbonation. Malts, yest, fruitiness, grass, bitterness, bit of boiled vegetables and sweetness in taste. Sweet and bitter aftertaste.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2009
On tap at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Hazy amber-copper colour with a smallcreamy head. Fruity hop nose. Caramel and solid, but almost a bit harsh bitterness. Very bitter, but lacks a bit sophistication.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2009
(Draught@One Pint Pub, Helsinki) Very hazy darkish amber with a small, creamy and lasting head. Quite fruity and yeasty aroma with slight vegetably hints. Smoothly fruity flavor with caramely maltiness and yeast, plus - again - some vegetables, diacetyl, and ashy hints. A slightly unclean, but fruity and otherwise ok Belgian ale.
