Bottle, 33 cl. (Bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk) Hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma: malty, yeasty, sweety. Medium body. Taste spicy (i think pepper); fruity, good bitterness. The aftertaste is much pepper. But iI like this beer.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 It was meant to be called Blondelle. But it was changed from name for "Willems" in Grobbendonk a shop where you can find 700 different beers. A very fruity beer and spicy. You can smell "Kardemon" and the taste is little sweet with a touch of bitterness. A perfect combination for a good and stable beer

Bottle@Home. Citrus, green apples and ginger aroma. Light hazy, yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Sweet, bitter, maty, apple, ginger and a hint of madeira. Full and warming. Surprising beer, flavorful and quite special.

33cl bottle. Thanks to Plovmand. Pours hazy yellow with a egg white head. Nose & taste is complex of yeast & spices. Smooth palate. Very nice!

Bottle, shared by plovmand. It’s hazy and orange-golden in the glass, with a nice dense beige head. Some floaties swirling around too. Spiced nose with some alcohol and beef-stock, fruityness and sweetness. Alcohol and spices are the first to be detected in the mouth, followed by lots of dried fruit and sweetness. Sticky and full-bodied with a good effervescent. Some alcohol warmth too, and in a strange way, it feels dry. A nice beer, actually really pleasant, but it would be pushing the limits to say it’s balanced. (080823)

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk. Pours a clear golden with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma is very spicy, the lavender jumps out at me, oranges, ginger and some sort of leaves. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour is very powerfully spiced. The lavender is still there, some flowery hops appear, a little menthol and a great warming viniousness. Not nearly as perfumy as I’d expected from the aroma.

TFODRBSG08 Courtesy of Plovmand. Vintage 2007. It’s orange-golden with a huge head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and raisin. The flavour has sweetness and notes of malt, caramel, yeast, citrus and a little spice.

Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Kräuterartig hefig-süßer Antrunk mit eindeutigen Tendenzen in eine hellmalzig-würzige Richtung. Stark kräuterartig-gewürzig bleibend, es kommt im Mittelteil eine hopfige Note auf, welche aber gleich darauf von einem voluminösen Kräuteraroma verschlungen wird. Dieses, die Würzigkeit lenkende Aroma kommt etwas plötzlich vervor, man erwartet eher einen gleichbleibenden Aromenstrom. Zum Ende pendelt sichd as Ganze wieder ein, der Alkohol brennt etwas, das Bier ist süßlich und deutlich malzig neben der weiter vorhandenen Kräuternote. 7/11/12/12/10/12

Yellowish small head, fast gone over orangey-gold beer, with a slight haze and a lot of UFO’s next. Very perfumey beer, lavender, rosemary, Canada poplar leaves, willow leaves. Very estery-spicy (Szechuan pepper?), and markedly bog myrtle, as well as again lavender (even when the ingredients don’t speak about such addition). Point, if unmistakable, of restsugar, and a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, grist slickness. Aftertaste is spicy bitterness. Spicy, rather original beer. I keep wondering about the lavender.
