Light brown colour with a white head, disappears quickly. Spice, malt, pleasant phenols, a bit of apple on the nose. Sweet and malty in flavour, a lot of biscuity and fruity notes. High carbonation, good body for a Belgian, warming. Very drinkable.

BillWyce (946) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Poured into the brewery’s specialty glass: hazy light amber color with a huge bone-colored head. Aroma of stone fruit with notes of caramel and yeast. Full body, lightly syrupy. Light astringent dryness in the finish. Flavor of stone fruit, maybe plum, mixed with some caramel. A bit of earthy yeast underneath.

Vom Fass im kultigen aufgehängtem Glass mit Holzhalter und aus der Flasche. Schöne braune Farbe mit viel Schaum. Malzig und süss.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2016
Colore dorato carico con riflessi arancione. La schiuma è abbondante, ma grossolana ed evanescente. Al naso caramello, nocciola, banana e qualche estere da lievito. In bocca è dolce e fortemente alcolica.

Maersk (96) - MOLDOVA - FEB 12, 2016
Thick creamy head, very nice bronze reddish color. Intense carb. Smells wine, fruit (slightly rotten) and burberry. Lots of candy in the taste. Aftertaste has alcohol and sour finish which slightly spoils the impression.

One of the best! Specially in the original chemistry-glass is a beer to enjoy. Full taste, caramel and nuts, perfect amber orange brown color with long finish. Maybe my favorite.

I’ve had this twice during 2 separate visits to Cafe Hollander in ’Tosa. Both times I thought it was awful. Weird aroma of medicine, banana, toffee, and capsicum. Horrible medicinal flavor. This is terrible and they didn’t do it any favors by serving it in an odd fucked up test tube like glass that looked very much like that "Drinking Bird" everyone had in the 1970’s.. On top of that, the glass came in a strange wooden holder that made getting to the glass difficult. Perhaps they were trying to prevent you from drinking this glop? This beer is really, really bad. Tap.
