750 ml bottle courtesy of Charles at Demervallei, shared with hizzoner BigMomma. Thank you sirs! Cloudy golden, medium white head, delicate lacing. Aroma of slightly sour citrus, wheat and light coriander. Taste is peppery citrus with very subtle hops, light body. More of a wheat ale than a Belgian strong. Nice.

Vintage 2009
Tasting at Papsø

Hazy deep blond color. The aroma is fruity, a bit spicy, with light alcohol and plastic. Good body strength, with sweetish malt flavor, light spicy profile, evident alcohol perception, but also some vegetables. Strong bitterness. Not bad, but the flavor could be better.

Hefig-süßer Antrunk, wenig klebrig. Der Hopfen ist führend und unterwirft sich als einziges nicht der Klebrigkeit. Nicht sehr speziell aber süffig und nett. 8/9/8/8//9
