Erzengel (7889) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2016
*Old rating. Best before June 2012. The beer is yeasty with hints of fruits and oranges. Easy to drink with a nice Belgian yeast profile. Smooth fruity in the aftertaste.

9/24/2009 2:15:29 PM Bottle from Bierkoning. Bold yellow body with thick head. Fruity and sweet nose. Nice sweet flavour, with fruits and slightly sour. Some spicyness in there as well. A really nice blend that goes down very well. Struise does it again.

From 33cl bottle. Pale amber. Aroma is yeasty, dry, balanced. Flat body, too carbonated. Yeast, esters, dry...not impressive

Scopey (12705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle (a few years old) at home. Can’t remember where I got this sucker... It pours clear gold with a thick white head. The nose is mostly of dough with sweet apple pie, hay and light toast. The taste is sweetish, doughy, apple, melon, some astringency, touch of spice and light lemon maybe......dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot going on, but what there is ain’t great. A very ho hum Belgian ale...

PhillyCraft (5874) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle with Keith, pours hazy bright orange gold with light but nice head and lacing. Aromas and flavor of earthy grains, biscuit malt, dark fruit, light spice, and yeast. Refreshing overall with a dry bitey finish. Carbonation was light to medium. Pretty good

77ships (8206) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2013
2008 Vintage bottle @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst during the Tour De Geuze. Pours a murky, very hazy orange with a greyish white head, only on the sides. Smell is dusty cellar, oxidized, murky, lightly rotting, very overripe dark fruit, dust, lightly watery,… Taste I surprisingly good, sweet mouldy, sugar, light overripe fruits, oxidation, rather sweet still, dying thick yeast, sweet spices,… Little carbonation but aptly fuller body. Obviously this beer cannot survive for long but good cellqring kept this drinkable and quite enjoyable.

Pours mega cloudy amber. Taste was spicy, some indian spices and vanilla. Kinda weird. Also slightly metalic aftertaste. sooo boring!
