Brewed from pale and caramel malts and heavily hopped with Hersbracker and Saaz hops, this is a beer for the connoisseur, who does not shy away from a robust hoppiness. Its full, smooth flavor makes it an ideal session beer.

Bottle, Hops are a bit dulled in this older example of the beer, all round nice beer, with dry finish to keep you coming back for another.

JorisPPattyn (9469) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2008
Huge, dense & creamy, cream-coloured head over fully hazy orange beer. Caramel, alcohol and English toffees; later grass and parsley aromas. Sweet, with a discreet, quite spicy background bitterness. Roast spices, citrus touch, very outspoken maltunderbuild. Very good blending of flavours. Very creamy texture, yeast determined; medium to well-bodied, light alcoholwarming. Excellent, accomplished beer. I can understand the distress of our Dutch tasters in having one of the best Dutch micros moving to Belgium. It’s the quadrature of the circle succeeded!

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2008
Courtesy of Fonefan. Golden with an OK head. The aroma is fruity and sweetish. The flavour has sweetness, notes of candy sugar, fruit, a little spice and the bitterness is low in spite of the promises of lots of hops. Anyhow, it’s quite charming and pleasant to drink.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2008
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. Wheaty flavoured beer with a mild yeasty spice. Quite sweet. Some hop bitterness. An amiable beer that just about holds together, though the individual parts don’t impress, and should clash. A delicate fragrant quality lifts this - though not very high!

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2008
Bottle. Very sweet and spicy smell (toffee, coriander). Large creamy white head, long lasting. Dark orange-red clear body. Very sweet taste with a medium duration. Rather flat carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. A little bit too sweet for my taste.

33 cL bottle from Cerveceria El Flabiol. Pours hazy orange with a slowly collapsing white head. Light coriander spiced and mild wheaty aroma note. Flavour is mild spiced with a light acidic touch and mild caramel malt note. Has a light bitterness into the finish. Nice and smooth.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2008
In short: An over-carbonated dry Belgian Ale.
How: Bottle, 330cl, about 6 months old
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body, lots of particles, short-lived white head.
In long: Honey, candy sugar, spicy hops and dry dusty yeast. Light fruity notes with only a light pears flavour. Carbonation is very fizzy, aggressive even, to the point of being bothersome. Dry rusty finish with some green peas (?!?) in the come-back. Lame Lamme Goedzak.
