kraddel (6146) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2015
75cl bottle, labeled as grand cru. Pours unclear warm blonde. Small white head. Smell is sweet ( somewhat spiced sugary sweetness ) Taste is sharp, bit bitter. Definate sweet undertone ( Sugar, mild spices ) yeasty towards the end. Agressive carbonation that really triggers the bitterness. Somewhat malty underneath the other aspects. OK

500ml ceramic bottle (Beer Express, Tallinn)
Super fruity aroma, tons of esters. Alas just a hint of tomato once or twice. Pale orange, small head. Lovely perfumey belgian ale taste, pale malts, pleasant herbal light hops. Quite simple, but very pleasant belgian.
