BlackHaddock (6104) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
33cl Bottle at The Red Rose Cafe, Brugge on 22nd Sep 2013. Very un-Belgian in taste, those English Golding hops asserting themselves I suppose? Poured a misty copper colour with a thin head covering. Lacked oomph in both the aroma and taste: some yeast and fruit notes but not enough to excite my taste buds (it was drank after on-tap stronger beers though). Mr Average in all aspects and a little disappointing to be honest, almost bland in fact.

olsvammel (5744) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle from a store in Belgium. Fruity and sweet smell with some earth cellar notes. Very light body. Light fruity taste with a hint of yeast. Feels a bit aged wonder if this is a bit to old.

DutchDrebus (5536) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2012
Great looking 33cl bottle @ home. Orange golden colour with a big white head that lasts quite well. Smells yeasty, quite sharp, orange peel, malty and some hoppyness. Tastes malty mostly, some bitterness, not as sharp as it smells, slightly fruity and a quite nice bitter and hoppy aftertaste. Great carbo, soft mouthfeel and thin to medium body. Could be a bit stronger, but it’s probably not the aim of this brew. Gets better with every sip. I don’t understand why it scores so low on ratebeer actually.

jfb (5401) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2012
(bottle) pours a clear deep golden-amber colour with a frothy white head. aroma of powdered sugar, vanilla and lemon deodorant wipes, quite flowery, with notes of gooseberries and light milk chocolate, very reminiscent of freshly cleaned portable toilets. flavour is mostly floral hops, with a hint of caramel, straciatella and a light bitter finish. light to medium-bodied with average carbonation.
