As Witkap Pater Special. Golden amber colored pour. Small white head. Some lacing. Smells a bit vegetal and off. There is a floral aroma and some malt buried in there though. Taste is quite a bit better than the nose would lead you to believe. Sweet with a floral aftertaste. Not bad.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff des-12: en syrlig belgisk blondine med højt skum! God balanse og deilig forfriskende. Bør drikkes kold, da den ble litt vammel når temperaturen steg i glasset.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle, as Witkap Pater Special, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.5%. Golden colour, slightly hazy. Pours very fizzy with a hude white head. Pleasant fruity and spicy aroma, "typically Belgian", also notes of kandij sugar syrup. The flavour is spicy and refreshing, not too sweet, but the finish is a bit short. Overall very enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from trade with fonefan. As Pikkeling Bier. It’s a lighlty unclear one, pale golden in color and topped by a dense, finger-thick white head leaving lacings. The aroma is sugary and lightly malty, with some cellar, a faint bubble-gum touch, some generic fruityness and a faint scent of toffee. White sugar, some pears and yellow apples in the flavor, a touch of pale malts in the back. Thin and a bit flat on the palate, and with a pleasant bitterness in the end. Well, a decent beer, nothing more. 120413

Flavour is light sweet, bread, malty, dry, hay, yeast, nice full on malty bitterness with light hops. Light-bodied, full carbonation that suits the beer. I quite liked this.
