bottle, bought in Switzerland. Bright golden colour, clear, quite large head, which was not very persistent. Malty and slightly sweet with a touch of fruit. Very hoppy and bitter in the finish and aftertaste, which is quite pleasant. A bit too much alcohol in the flavour though.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Mah, questa mi ha lasciato un poco perplesso, soprattutto dopo aver assaggiato la piacevolissima Vienna della stessa linea. Molto anonima nel suo genere, manca decisamente di carattere; va giù bene ma non lascia un gran ricordo.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a fully golden beer with a medium, rather quick diminishing white head. The aromas are flowery, biscuitty, sweet, hoppy. Some gluey, sugary elements. The nose reminds me somewhat of molasses. A hint of hay. The taste is of caramel, rather sweet, soapy. Some fruits (lemon, a hint of peaches). A little citrussy. A trace of peanuts? There is a lack of good hop character in this beer. Rather low bitterness. Some caramel comes through just before the finish. Some peanuts in the aftertaste. Interesting, but far from beeing enjoyable.

(33 cl bottle shared with ekstedt at "Tre små rum", Göteborg) Shady pale golden color, small white head. Cheeze and sweet Belgian ale yeast scent. Spicy yeasty taste, sweet and a bit hoppy. Spritzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Bottle. Hazy golden, small white head. Fruity, malty aroma, some vague floral hops. Medium bodied, quite smooth. Good balance, with a moderate bitterness.

Bottle courtesy of and shared with ozujsko (thanks!)
Beautiful darker orange/gold colour and a big white head that went away soon. Oily hoppy nose, some malt, slightly fruity. Not bad but not great. Nice fruity maltiness and lemoniness, long, but not that pronounced hoppy aftertaste. An ok, not flashy but quite pleasant beer.... an English style beer under a faux German brand made by a brewery with Trieste in its name that’s actually somewhere near Treviso. How cute.

Deep yellow clear colour, with a nice creamy head.
Aroma is hopy,flower,fruity,citric and a nice maltyness. Flavor is sparkling Vine,lots of maltyness, and citric,flowers. A typical Belgian Ale if you ask me.
Medium to full body, medium to full finish.
Werry nice ber!!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly darker in colour to the Pils and true enough to the style. Again looks very illuminated and attractive. Sweetish malts on the nose, slightly daggy and earthy. Friendly to taste with more approachable malts but perhaps a touch over cooked (ie a bit like stewed fruits). Almost feels like a lighter Belgian Ale so perhaps the pale ale tag is misleading. In any event it doesn’t have the weight to be true to that style. Nice beer, well made.
