Benzai (14108) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2012
33cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy dark orange to light, faint red color, small off-white to beige head that disminishes almost instantly. Smell is off: old malts, herbal, slightly medicinal. Taste old malts, old bread, yeasty, light to moderately sweet. Low to medium body, medium carbonation.

FatPhil (13867) - 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.

Fin (9591) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Gent, consumed at home on Wednesday 12th February 2014. Pours hazy dark gold with slim white head. Clean slightly spritzy nose with a little spice, a little bland is my first impression. It’s fine, a tiny bit thin and lacking maybe, but absolutely fine. Sweetish typically Belgian in many respects but very safe. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

JorisPPattyn (9472) - 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?

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, orange-amber colour with a tall and tanned foamy head. Sweet cara-malty aroma with notes of black tea and lemon, reminding me a bit of Earl Grey tea. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Present cara-malt character with delicate notes of lemon and again a touch of tea; moderately sweet malt-accented and slightly fruity finish with a very restrained level of bitterness. Nice but no highlight. 22.III.11
