DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Belgian version. Clear caramel amber color. Aroma of stale and dusty malt, caramel and a bit of bread. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, a bit of stale notes and a drier finish, slightly bitterish, with faint spicy notes and light metallic notes. Light to medium-bodied. Too sweet.

Bottle 25cl, a clear copper beer with low head. Nose is on toasted malt with burnt caramel touch. Aroma is nutty and on light caramel, with grassy hops, metallic and bitter hops. burnt touch, not that complex, long bitter aftertaste.

Marko (3918) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 22, 2013
Definitely alive and kicking in Belgium. De Lantaarn, Leuven. Poured a dark amber body with a white head. Light malty nose, raisins. Maltiness is the dominant flavor in this one, slightly dry, dusty, some raisins. Simple, light hoppy bitter finish. Balanced and completely, utterly ordinary, as befits the brewery I guess.

Vaiz (3336) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2013
Fresh 25cl Belgian version, brewed at InBev. Bottle. Clear amber pour, thin white head. Aroma is slightly floral, chemical, spicy hops, a bit dusty and grainy. Flavor is simple bitterness, quite watery, a hint of fruity hops and a bit chemical. Quite rough for a macro ale.

77ships (3692) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2012
25 cl. bottle purchased @ ALBO // according to the bottle brewed @ Inbev Belgium, according to RB and alias for this one which is both retired & brewed elsewhere, odd // anyway, Belgian version // clear amber with a creamy beige head // smells like caramel, metals & grass hops // taste is sweet caramel malts blended with pils malt / adjunct type of thing, dash metallic side to the caramel, fruity, peach, dash brown sugar, grass hops finish, weird metallic, caramel sweet overall // lightly sticky body & fizzy // weird Inbev thing, could have been okay, maybe they were trying, kind of hard to tell // quite odd

Had as the Belgian version....Pours a nice hazy golden orange color. Aromas of nice citrus/grapefruit hops. Flavor starts malty and the hops kick in, nice crisp bitter finish.
