thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam.
Pours hazy golden with a giant, frothy, white head. Bubbles bursting as it slowly fizzes away. Really lovely aroma. Lots of brett, red and green apples, oranges, barnyard, almonds, crispy pilsner malts, pine and a slight white wine note. High, prickly carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, oaky, good brett. Barnyard, pine cones, grass and a touch of oranges, ginger, green apple zest. Lovely long dryness in the aftertaste. It might be a travesty to say this, but it really reminds me of Orval!

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2009
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Hazy yellow body with large head. Malty nose. Nice hoppy taste with lots of citrus. Also fruity and spicy. Quite enjoyable. Pleasantly surprised.

rosenbergh (6582) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2009
330 ml bottle. From DECA, Woesten/Vleteren, Belgium.
Hazy golden colour with small off-white head. Yeasty and spicy aroma. The flavour is also yeasty and spicy. Some sweet fruitiness and breadyness too. Flavour hides the 8% well. Nothing wrong but doesn’t stand out either.

Brandman (2059) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2009
300 ml bottle. Yellow hazy straw body with white head that disappers quickly. Fruity, yeasty and spicy aroma. Some piny hoppiness, but in very small amount, almost disappers behind the sweetness. Very fruity and strong first taste, but disappears quite quickly leaving only some bitterness. Flavour has a strong presence of yeast. Tastes like a little too fresh and not matured enough.
