translucent copper with a foamy beige head. syrupy full body with high carbonation.

aroma: heavy minerality (wet stone and metallic character), caramel malt, yeast, grainy mustard. Rather dank and earthy.

taste: bright grainy tartness, canned fruit, amber candy sugar, and then a bit of mustard spice lingering in the finish. very odd overall, but would be quite nice for food pairings.

Tasted when it was still made at the original Regenboog brewery, not sure if it has changed a lot since Johan Brandt moved his brewing activities, but it is hard to imagine it hasnít. In its original form, this was a pleasant, amber coloured musterd seed beer, in which a very slight hint of mustard was indeed detectable, yet covered by a candi sugar and malty sweetness. Had some complexity and was quite enjoyable.

This one pours the color a nice golden color with a hazy body and a foamy white head. Wostytje has a funky aroma of hard apple cider, pineapple and yeast. The taste hits you with sour apple cider vinegar and funky earthy yeast. Then it turns somewhat sweet in the middle and end with an odd bitter and mustardy finish. The body is medium with a smooth texture. Overall itís a very odd beer. Unique. However for me the flavors just donít work together at all.

jfb (4023) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 30, 2014
(bottle) pours a murky orange-brown colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of butter and cherries, with a light lemony tartness, some cardboard, powdered sugar, fudge and sugar icing. flavour is mostly melted butter on toast, with some straw and a hint of grain husks. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

marcus (6700) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours cloudy amber with a huge beige head and a spicy aroma. There is a strange conglomeration of tastes that are dominated by mustard, a flavor I detest. That made it very difficult to rate this beer. I didnít detect any candi sugar, just that darn mustard.

Hazy amber colour, medium carbonation. Sweet and malty with some hints of spices. Nothing special.

bob_w (327) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2013
spicy, yeasty, slightly sour aroma. some sweet notes in the aroma, faintly caramel/toffee, very muddy, murky light tan/dirty yellow (though it did have a bouncy bike ride home from the shop). no much head. yeasty beer. some sweetness, caramel, a hint of sourness. thereís a subtle spiciness in the middle, finishing with a tangy note. thereís a lot of flavors mixing from start to finish. kind of muddled, but definitely complex and interesting.

I never knew a beer brewed with mustard could be good. But smisje proves in this weird brew that it can be tasty.

Martinus (3015) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2013
Quite hazy golden brown colour, white head. Malty aroma, caramel, bread, toast and light mustard. Malty flavour, light sweet, light sour touch, mustard in the back. Finish malts, caramel, light lemon, light warm mustard.
Light mustard, quite balanced. Quite nice!

MrBeerFanatic (881) - Friona, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a cloudy copper with high carbonation that takes away the head quickly. Aromas of light pineapple, cheese, slight sour apple, and coriander. Flavors are medium spicy, slight note that is fishy(my glass or mustard?), Belgian sugars, coriander, and lightly bready. Medium sweet, slightly sour/tart with mostly a clean finish except for a slight bitter note and spice. Donít notice to much of a distinguished difference with the mustard seed. Pretty good overall.

trapped (870) - New York City, TURKEY - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber appearance, small white foamy head, cinnamon-cumin aroma, sweetish spicy cherry taste, low carbonation, spicy finish with liquor aftertaste. It tastes like a lambic beer.
