FatPhil (14021) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (9505) - 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?

Big head, dark amber colour, goes well in a Belgian chalice. Aroma of malts, some witbier notes, some barley. Taste is a smooth mix of malts, a little caramel. Palate could be stronger. Good for drinking lots of.
