6-way split. :) Didn’t plan to try these but others were interested, so... Murky yellow body, white, creamy thick white head. Sweet malty appley aroma, crackers, soft. Empty, mild taste, light apple, vaguely sweet, clean, drinkable, the epitome of "meh" for the style I guess.

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
Bottle (75cl): Shared by Joes: Served in tasters: Clear pale yellow with a small bubbly white head. Aroma but specially the flavour are so typical Belgian ale a like! Aroma woody notes with apples, yeast, Belgian yeast... Flavours of yeast, bitters, bit woody, light fruity, light wheat, grains and malts, very typical. Aftertaste of bitters, yeast and light fruity tones. Medium to full carbo, medium bodied and a light blown foamy mouthfeel. Nothing interesting, but I guess it’s ok, well executed but just a bit noring...Verry Belgian Ale alike!

_angst_ (3274) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours hazy vibrant yellow with a frothy and fluffy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of trace on the glass. Smell is slightly rustic with crackers, hay, dry soil, minerals, white pepper corns and lemon peal. Taste is very tiny sweet, slightly bitter, tiny sour, tiny estery and tiny phenolic with crackers, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, green banana, minerals, white pepper corns and lemon peal. Mouthfeel is slightly round, sparkling, champagne-like, slightly dry, very tiny tart and light bodied. Finish is slightly bitter and tiny sour with crackers, hay, dry soil, pear skins, minerals and lemon peal. Solid simple thirst-quencher. Enjoyable...

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2015
Hazy golden with a disappearing white head. Fruity aroma, mostly tropical, spicy notes of coriander and clove, and some herbal and grassy hop notes. Sweet malty, fruity and spicy flavour, with grassy hops and a rather bitter finish. Very classic, but a little sweet, plus, equally good Belgian saison is cheaper in Denmark
