thewolf (11150) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Bier Tempel, Brussels.
Clear orange-amber with a big, frothy, off-white head. Fizzes slowly away. Aroma is sweet, Belgian sugar, light metal, some peppery notes, red apples, light pine. High, prickly carbonation, fairly nice dry and light creamy palate. Flavour is elegant, sweet caramel and Belgian sugar at the base, fair grassy, floral and light piney bitterness in the end. Some red apples in the flavour as well. Kinda nice.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2011
(Bottled, 5.5% ABV) Almost clear amber with a medium head. Slightly tart and caramely nose with orange-peel spiciness. Flavor is caramely malt with Du Bocq house yeast and some drying tartness. Also some spices (orange peel, coriander?). Medium body, somewhat fizzy CO2, reasonably refreshing. Not the most memorable brew, but at least more interesting than similar Palm or De Koninck. 4355

jaghana (3810) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle 33cl. An amber with medium head. Smell is on citrus and triple kind of beer. Aroma is on dry fruits, apricot, prune, peach, mostly dry specially at the finish which is spicy hoppy too. Quite bitter, not bad but too dry and watery for me.
