fiulijn (15420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2009
At Le Sous Bock, Paris, corked bottle
Hazy blond color; medium, persistent head. Common strong Ale, boozy, a bit spicy, quite dry.
Now brewed by Huyghe, it’s miles away from the pleasant original one by Annœullin.

MiP (13912) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2009
Bottle, 8.5%. Brewed by Huyghe. Weak berry aroma, blueberry, I think. Cloudy yellow colour. Stable white head. The flavour is sweet and spicy with a hint of berries in the finish. A little alcohol flavour and graininess in the finish, but still quite OK.
