mile (3634) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty – lightly wheaty and sweetish aroma, fruitiness, some yeast. Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and sweetish flavor, fruitiness, some yeast and spiciness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty –lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, fruitiness and yeast, faint spiciness, alcohol. Sweetish and fruity strong ale - really nothing that makes this stand out from the crowd.

Draught at Moeder Lambic Fontainas Cloudy medium gold, high head. Malty, spicy nose. Sweet, fruity, citrus (sweet orange) flavor, some spices, wheat. Herbal. Too sweet and unbalanced.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2011
Hazy straw colour underneath a voluminous fluffy white head. Waxy alcohol aromas prevalent and signature fruity banana Belgian ale yeast along with boiled vegetables. The first impression is colling and fluffy and then there’s a violent blow of alcohol and fruits. There’s a tangy tinge of citrus and bitterness that hangs around for a few minutes leaving the impression that you’ve just taken a bite out of a lemon. Not quite what I was expecting out of this bottle, but for all that, tasty enough... but I wouldn’t go back for a second - I’d be unconscious.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2011
0.33L bottle bought in Brussels, enjoyed at home. Lacing, shiny white head. Body is orangey-golden with lots of microfloaters, yeast particles apperantly. Pleasant smell of marzipan, cake and fruity Belgo-yeast. Initial flavor is yeasty, followed by nutty, marzipan-like malts. Noticable alcohol sweetness. Mild herbal bitterness. Well-bodied. Juicy mouthfeel. Yeasty endnotes. Quite a good one. Has some yeast issues, though.

skortila (5003) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2011
Bottled. The aroma has some yeast, maltiness, fruits. Slightly hazy, copper coloured beer with a white head. The taste is slightly hopbitter, has some fruitiness, alcohol is present. Didn’t get any tobacco.

ekstedt (6234) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle (33 cl) from the Cracked Kettle. Shady deep golden, medium to large fluffy white head. Nutty and almondy aroma with some spicy, phenolic notes and clear alcohol notes. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry with medium bitterness.

erickok (4626) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Cloudy orange and small white head. Fruity aroma, mango and orange, with yeasty notes. Taste is much more powerful. Smooth, the alcohol working its magic here, and full of flavour. Mild sweetness but quite hoppy at the same time. Mouthfeel is spot on. Yet another great and underrated brew by this brewery. Will definitely get this more often. (33cl bottle) (Rating re-indexed)

MrHangover (3680) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2011
This one is a big suprise. The bottle plus the glass looks kind of cheap, but the taste is really exciting. There is an enjoyable bitterness with hoppy notes to go with it. It is the youngest beer from the Scheldebrouwerij.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2011
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas on 30 March 2011.. Clear gold. Creamy white head. Blonde spicy stuff. A little herbal bitterness. Not unpleasant but a bit sweet and sherbety. Is this actually brewed with tobacco? If so, I can’t say I noticed it. Surprised to see it was 9.5% as it didn’t seem that strong.

Skinnyviking (8200) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2011
Bottle. High fluffy and long lasting good looking fluffy white head. Hazy orange body. Mild and acutually astonishingly weak fruity flavor and something I guess is a hint of tobacco, but it is indeed very weak. Alcohold is pretty much appearent in the aroma. If tobacco is added I would never have guessed it. Flavor is mild fruity with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short aftertaste. Alcohol though is though also too dominant in the flavor.
