beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
ZBF 08. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Interesting aroma of spices and fruits. The flavor has a yeasty character accompanied by spices and fruits, itís also well attenuated. The body is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation. Interesting.

FatPhil (8557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle (ZBF2008)
Mid-orange, small head. Slightly sour aroma. Taste is a little sweet, with fruity sourness, but also somewhat better. A bit weird - malty and sticky, with a tangy harsh bitter taste. Yet another messy mish-mash from Hofbrouweijke, alas.
