Bottle from Bierkoning. Exploding head, probably lost 50% of contents to the tablecloth. Murky brown body with serious head. Nose of malts. Taste of caramel, malts, sweet fruits. Very yeasty but also very nice. LIked it quite a bit, considering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 9.5%. Violent gusher, just goes on. OK malty aroma. Disgusting-looking muddy brown colour, lots of yeast floating around. The head is big and quite stable with bits of yeast mixed in. Luckily, the flavour is a lot better than the appearance. Quite malty and slightly sweet, fruity with some sweet spices and a good amount of alcohol.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cl Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Murky brown colour with lots and lots of yeast, huge lasting fluffy and creamy head. The head kept growing and growing, also out of the bottle. Hmm...Very fruity and yeasty aroma, lots of ripe stonefruits, brown sugar and yeast, spicy, very Belgian. Flavour is sweet, stonefruits, peppery spices, a lot of sugar, but nicely balanced by a good hoppy bitter finish, along with some alcohol. Soft and creamy mouthfeel, medium to fullbodied. Higly enjoyable, very good beer!

Bottled (from Cracked Kettle). Amber colour, mediumsized fluffy beige head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is fruity and flowery hops along with some hints of spices and yeast. Flavour is toffee, some spices along with fruity and flowery hops. Alcohol gives a nice warming touch in the throat on it’s way down. Fruity hoppy finish and aftertaste. Comes quite close to some IPA:s with it’s strong fruity hoppyness.
