Icedwarf (1272) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Helder levendig geel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is fris zuur, licht hoppig bitter en enigszins zoet, honing, gras en citrus. Erg goed, echter ietwat waterig. Smaak blijft redelijk lang hangen.

Not so good as the Blonde Dorée version, that was much better! This one has a taste that is not so nice.

330ml bottle (Wines of Gallilee)
Ricey boozy aroma, not much else. Tastes of bugger all. More adjunct than beer. Booze not so well hidden. Good fuel for a lamp. Tasted better with the yeast added, but the above was written with the yeast added.

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 4, 2015
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Pale yellow color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, cereals, fart in aroma. Not quite good aroma. Malty, sweet, fruity, coriander, spicy, bit metallic, alcohol in taste. Fruity alcohol in aftertaste. Crisp mouthfeel. Yeast improves that brew, but can’t really save it.

Une belle couleur blonde paille elle mousse beaucoup et elle est assez tenace On est à laisser sentir une légère odeur double va sentir aussi une odeur légèrement aigre En bouche va être très très douce Je ne la trouve pas si exceptionnel que ça...

Bottle. Translucent Pilsner pour, champaign like. Aroma is sweet and slightly murky, resembles Leffe blond a bit. Notes of fresh grass, citrus. Taste is slightly sour with sweet notes, again like Leffe but more watered down. Bitter and dry aftertaste which is a little too dry maybe. Nothing too special, but not that bad either. Could easily drink a couple.
