Bottle. [Tasting @ Papsoe 20-10-2008] Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare display of lacework. Cloudy golden color. Aroma of horse blanket, leather, barnyard, spice, fruit, grain, earth. Over the palate came heavy spicy fruity, caramel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet flavor. Lingering spicy sweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[1189-20080304] Tap. Aroma evokes thoughts of elephants with a bit of alcohol and mildly smoked corn fields. Clear, medium orange brown body with a big long-lasting creamy off-white foam on top. Fruity cucumber vegetable flavour has a smoky corn kick to it. Medium-full body. Booze is definitely present and a little distracting. (On a side note, I took a picture of this beer when it first arrived at our table and consider it to be the best one so far in my on-going search of attractive ’mug’ shots...)

Draft at Staminee de Garre in Brugge pours hazy soft yellow/orange with a huge two-inch pure white head, soft and finely bubbled. Nose is somewhat dusty and dry and full of mineral smells, but also has some fruity and candy sugar sweetness. Full-bodied and rich and frothy, with sweet flavors of Belgian candy sugar, pears, and white grapes all around, drying minimally over the middle. Finishes sweet with a slight amount of noticeable yeast, drying somewhat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2008-03-04. Golden yellow body with a huge off white head that fades quickly leaving a good fingers worth and decent lacing. Dry yeasty aroma, moderate alcohol - basic triple repertoire. (6+) Flavour is quite similar, dry alcohol up front lingers into the finish, pale malt sweetens the middle. Light hoppy bitterness to balance things. Average to medium palate. (3+)
