Oddly an aroma of coffee. Palate seems smoother than Westoek X. This one might be the better of the two.

hopscotch (8539) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. Spicy, herbal nose – rooty sassafras or sarsaparilla. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Sweet, spicy, mildly acidic flavor – pale grains and honey with hints of toffee and sassafras. Finishes with a nice, lingering sweetness. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Taste is fruity with yeast, spices, medium bitter, malts, a hint of caramel, some warmth of the alcohol light sweet and a hint of grains.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle: Poured a hazy brown color ale with a super huge foamy head with great retention and perfect lacing. Aroma consists of spicy yeast with nice Belgian malt notes and some residual sugar. Taste is a nice drinkable mix between some Belgian malt with notes of candi sugar and a very nice spicy yeast finish. Body is full with great bottle conditioning and some limited filtration with no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed though not as easily drinkable as the blonde version but the Struise yeast strain is still shining.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
330ml bottle, best before January 2016, bought from Dranken Geers. Hazy amber colour. Fluffy white head. Lively carbonation. Strong spicy Belgian yeast aroma. tangy and slightly peppery on the palate. Moderate sharp bitter hop presence. Light mouthfeel. Easygoing and pleasantly drinkable without quite hitting the real high spots.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2011
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some mild floral and yeasty notes as well. Flavour is fruits, yeast, some wood, quite sweet malts and actually a quite big bitterness lurking in the background and giving a nice dry bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
