This coppery Belgian Ale is the result of Saaz hops and Belgian yeast brewed with light crystal and caramel malts.

Tasted on tap @ The Great Kiwi Beer Festival 2012 in Christchurch. Light sour palate, not bitter. Strong full and complex flavour.

Tasted at Bar Edward with my Dad. I think the word that best sums up this beer is ’pleasant’ it does everything right, it’s everything that i want it to be it’s well brewed, it’s accomplished and hits all the right spots for me.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Bottle from Regionals.

Pours golden, white dissipating head. A bit of sweetness, pepper, and flowers on the nose. Mainly flavours of caramel, some spice, bit of malt and mildly hopped. Not too bad, a little one dimensional. At least it’s got a low carbon footprint!!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2008
(On tap) Courtesy of yalnikim. Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving a neat curtain of laces. Aroma of yeast and flowers. Medium body a little low in carbonation with notes of yeast and fruit, a little diacetyl and a somewhat astringent finish. OK as such - just a little boring. 310108

bozoNZ (758) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 26, 2008
Poured a copper golden with a light faint but dissapating head. Funky, woody, spicey, ’Belgian’ for the want of a better word aroma. Flavours a little smoked, spicey, phenols (tangy on the fillings) with a dry chalky, moody, intreguing finish. A little cloyishness(?), lively when seen poured. Not a 6-pinter but interesting and thankfully way different from the norm seen in this neck of the woods
