Bottle thx to benzai, he had a spare bottle and donated it to me so i can continue my beerquest. Very, very pale - almost white yellow colour with a decent, full white head. Smells slightly hoppy, some malts. Just beery and nothing weird. Tastes some banana, yeasty, fruity, fresh and soft. A nice taste, but im going to let this one standing for a while, because it?s a bit high in carbo. I think the carbo will drop a bit and then it will be a fine beer. Light to medium body.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2012
Golden blond colour, white head. Light bitter aroma with loads of sweaty socks and dusty attic. Light bitter, light sweet flavour, slightly perfumed. Lasting fresh, floral finish.
The aroma of this one is quite horrid, but flavour and palate are very OK. Rather strange in that aspect.
(From 33cL bottle @ local pub)

bierkoning (10381) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle, poured @ de Gouden Leeuw St Lievens Houtem in a fitting glass. Malty, slightly perfumed flavor. Fairly dry with alcoholic notes. Hint of citrus. Decent, uncomplicated Duvel-clone.

txspartan (968) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2012
Rather sweet as far alcohol goes, with a tad of a burn. Bit of a moldy malt flavour.

Flavour has quite a lot of maltose and a light sharpness. Finish is a bit sugary, sweet.

Straling (363) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2012
Bottle 33cl. Pours a beautiful clear golden colour with a strong head and great carbonation. Rather absent aroma, bit disappointing, some notes of hops there though.

sebletitje (6784) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2012
33cl bottle. Dorée claire/paille, col blanc. Arôme reste très typique belge, presque maïs sur ce bouquet houblon noble allemand/tchèque. En bouche, herbacé, léger picotement sur la langue laissant un fini médicinal, pétillant avec une pointe citronnée/houblon, malt reste en retrait sur un type munich/pâle/pils et un fini minime vers le sucré. Très décevante et n’a rien à voir avec la qualité des bières Ommegang de Moortgat aux US.
