faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange colour with a medium fairly lasting white head laving a good lacing. The aroma is seet and fruity with yeast and spices. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is bit sweet with ripe fruits, yeast, wheat, hops, caramel and spices. Good lasting fruity bit spiced finish.

dark orange colour, fine head, yeasty, very discreet aroma, oily and heavy, very long spicy and bitter finish - strange and disappointing (for a belgian)

FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2011
330ml bottle (Cambrinus, Brugge)
6 classic sweet mild blond aroma.
4 Rich orange, sticky doughy head
7 Yes, I know this is Haacht, but this is a quality blond. Rich malty body, gently bitter hops, good balance.
4 Full palate, smooth and a little sweet. Pleasant carbonation. Finnish gently hoppy, certainly quite muted, but they are real green noble hops.
14 Solid Belgian Abbey beer. Covers the alcohol very well.
