Schommelpeird or Rocking Horse is a hazy light hoppy amber ale brewed and named especially for the Waregemse Beer Festival 2009 to be held on holy (easter) Saturday 11th of April at the hippodrome of Waregem and mostly known from "Waregem Koerse", the biggest horse-race event of Belgium.

330mL thanks to FlandersNed. The pour is hazy orange with a large, off-white head. Spotty lace remains. Lemon and orange sherbet nose with flowers and citrus. Taste is soft, bitter, earthy, nutty bitter. No astringency. Lemon tart finish. Feels like a softer DIPA. Very nice. 12% not evident.

Sugary caramel and honey nose. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, some golden grapes, light pear, lots of caramel, a bit astringent.

Travlr (13733) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle courtesy f GT2, saved in his beer cellar with a small sticker that says "share with Gene." Probably the most thoughtful thing that anyone has ever done for me in my entire life. Seriously. Cloudy amber color, fizzy white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste is very malty, with a profile similar to Rosste Jeanne I think. Nice.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2011 Provada al Drunk Monk. Aroma envolvent. Molt complexa. A cada glop sensacions diferents. Sour d’altíssima qualitat. Cervesa de guarda. D’aquí a uns anys pot ser la hòstia!

Bottled, thanks Pallieter85! Cloudy golden, small head. Buttery sweaty grapefruit aroma. Dryish and full bodied. Fruity with syrupy mouthfeel. The hops are tired by now, but the finish remains really bitter.

A Struise beer that Travlr hasn’t had? Yes, please! Thank you secret santa. Pours apricot in color with a trim white head. Smells of sweat, canned peaches, and hops. Sweet in flavor with added notes of malt and Hawaiian Punch. Really enjoyed this.

Burnt amber orange color with minimal head. Smells creepy, fruity and belgiany. Tastes delicious.

Bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass as well. Deep yellow, modest turbid. Strong-spicy aroma. Starts not as stong as exspected, very spicy, notes of cinnamon, hoppy-grasy background. Also some lemon notes. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable for its strength. Good beer!

Bottle at home. Orange coloured. Medium white head, that holds very good. Sweet fruity smell. Nice smell. Honey-fruity sweet taste. Grapefruit, citrus, caramel. Bitter aftertaste, a bit to overwhelming biterness.
