33cl bottle: This one pours a clear, amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head on it, and it lingers awhile. There is a constant fizzing coming from the bottom of the glass. The aroma isn’t overly strong, yet it is very pleasant. I get some caramel, spices, fruits and a touch of breadiness. The taste is some caramel , toffee, fruits, some of the yeastiness, and a touch spicy. The flavors don’t stand out, but blend nicely for a fine brew.

Tap at Silver Creek. Aroma of malt, some banana, alcohol definately prevelant in aroma. Taste was also quite alcoholic, malty, strongly hoped. Some citrus present as well. A decent brew. I would buy again.

Tasted it on draft in Ostende and on bottle at home. I have 3 different glasses for it. A good and not to strong tasting beer. Nice smell. Just be aware if you do not get the kwak in your face.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAY 14, 2007
Interesting aroma of sugar cane molasses. In the palate, citric and candy, but without attacking. Definitively, an only beer, with personality....................................... Interessante aroma de melaço de cana. No paladar, doce e cítrica, mas sem agredir. Definitivamente, uma cerveja única, com personalidade marcante.

Pours gold with medium head. Also, lots and lots of ’floaties’...so many that I had to pour beer through a strainer so I could finish. I’ve had beers with ’floaties’ before, but this was unbelievable. An enjoyable beer with mild taste. Went down easy. Finished a 750ml bottle in just under 30 minutes.
