75 cl bottle with champagne cork, bought at the ZBF 2006. Hazy golden colour with hints of orange. A big white head. Poured carefully to avoid the sediment. Nice floral and grassy aroma, with spices, at least coriander, and yeastiness in the background. Flavours are surprisingly dry throughout, ending very dry. Coriander is there, but subdued. More prominent is the grassy hoppiness. Also some cellar flavours. Some warming alcohol, surprisingly light-bodied, dry mouthfeel. The label does not give much away, yet the hop frame indicate a relationship to Poperings Hommelbier. According to the ZBF brochure this is a blend of Het Kapittel Tripel and Watouís Wit made for Blauwershof in Godewaersvelde, France, much like the blend of Het Kapittel Abt and Watouís Wit made for ít Hommelhof. I have not tasted the latter, but this blend is definitely successful, uniting the spiciness of the wit with the solidly hoppy tripel.

Bottle, 75 cl, shared with Parket. Light hazy golden coloured beer with medium white stable head. Aroma of grains, some malts, light sweet and spices. Taste is a nice combination of hops - giving a nice light bitterness to the beer, malts - giving a nice light sweetness to the beer, a spicy background and some alcohol taste. No top beer, but very nice beer anyway (makes me think a bit of Lupulus)

75cl bottle shared with dad at my mums birthday. Hazy yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, hops, a light touch of herbs, a decent bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite pleasant.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2006
Fully hazy yellow beer with orange shine; small but persistent, just off-white head. Flowery, lime blossom and lunaria nose, with yeasty esters, fruity and a whiff of sugar syrup. Well-balanced, sweet/dry-bitterish, but the sugars win out eventually. Mind you, Iíve had this fresher. Again lunaria and I seem to get some coriander too, ending in a spicey finish. Medium bodied. No new aftertaste, but longlastign finish. Iíve had this before, at the Blauwershof, and it was in better shape then. Thereís definitely more in this.

75 cl bottle, nice cloudy golden colour with white and stable foamy head. Smell: yeasty, grainy. Taste: some pure malty taste, great hops, some sweetness and alcohol. Nice beer but not the top.
