blankboy (6426) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
[Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- c/o HogTownHarry] Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Nice and fruity aroma along with some spices, caramel malt, some sugary sweetness and toffee. Flavour of yeast, dark fruit, a bit of sugar and caramel malt. Average to medium bodied. This bottle is at least 5 years old and has held up really well.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
my goodness knows how old 330ml bottle shared with blankboy and biegaman. Clear deep amber with a solid frothy beige head - nice. Aroma has thinned out a bit - very light yeast, candied fruit and some residual alcohol - was probably pretty amazing when fresh (6yrs old?). Taste - roasty, a little thin, slightly soy-ish, sour candy - interesting. Slick, thick, undercarbonated, a little harsh in the finish.

Benfi (627) - DENMARK - MAR 4, 2014
Huge, slowly diminishing, fluffy off-white head that leaves some lacing. Lovely, clear copper/amber colour. Aroma of Belgian ale yeast, sweet melon, yellow apple, ripe pear, pineapple, caramel. Medium body, soft/lively carbonation. Semi-sweet fruity-yeasty taste with a mild, dusty bitterness and hint of menthol. Long bitter-sweet aftertaste.

Dejlig mild forårsøl/påskeøl trods en styrkefuld base. Krydret aroma med tydelig duft af gær og humle. Plurallel smag med god bund. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tobiasoe (65) - NORWAY - JAN 24, 2014
Large frothy sustained off-white head over a clear nut-brown-red beer. Medium plus aroma intense offering of banana, rose hip, sweet malt with some herby hay and faint sourness. Medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little oily on the palate with bitterness dominating other flavours that include bread, anise or such spices, discreet fruit, hollow midpalate. The bitterness feels a little crude and impure, something faint metallic, finish a bit short, otherwise it’s an ok beer with useful weight and refreshing qualities.

Benzai (9646) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear reddish color, small white head. Aroma is a bit weird. Hard to describe: lightly malts, toffee, toasted malts, slightly leaves. Taste toasted malts, slightly leaves, a herbal bitterness and again something weird I can’t put my finger on. Medium body and carbonation. .

DutchDrebus (4528) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle @ Benzai during Ned - Col. Slightly hazy orange to amber colour with a medium to big sized off-white head. Smells herbs, malts, spices, slightly yeasty, slightly minty. Tastes some apricot, tropical fruits, malts, some iron, slightly hoppy. Nice beer! Medium body, soft carbo.

caesar (5595) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2013
Bottled 6.5%, BB 22.01.15, large sample. Slight hazy amber color, medium lasting off-white head. Aroma of peppery belgian yeast quite typical of st feuillien, hint of licorice and anise, slight flowery hop. Bit dry taste, bit sweet, bit bitter, slight metallic hint. The peppery belgian yeast together with some darker malts seems to give a slight metallic tart finish. Not my kind of beer.
