A very attractive alternative to the classic Pils. The Yerseke’s Mosselbier offers more color and more taste. First you taste the bitterness of the hops, immediately followed by a light sweetness of the roasted malt. The dark amber color in a special flute glass is an enrichment for the table.

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2014
Tasted at 10 years of age at the Kulminator. Typical Belgian blonde in that it tries to mimick a pale lager whilst being top-fermented and apparently intended to accompany mussels. Rocky and moussy, thick head, peach blonde, orangey colour. Malty, nutty, dried fruits, grassy hop bitterness; close to a Belgian amber ale (spéciale belge). I would rather suggest geuze or even witbier as an accompaniment to mussels with French fries, though.

Lenusik (119) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
This beer comes in a small bottle, that alone is a negative. The is a clear amber colour, the head is thin and tan in colour. The aroma is sweet malt, although I can sense a hop or three. The flavour was rather sweet, with some malt and hops in the mix

Koelschtrinker (17292) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Malziger Geruch mit scharfer Note. Herb-malziger Antrunk, der mit einer wässrigen Note deutlich zurückgehalten wird. Daher wird das Bier kurze Zeit später auch malziger, gleichzeitig süßer. Wirklich stark ist das Bier aber nie. Hier setzt eine verhaltene Würze ein, die eine leichte Säure schnell ersetzt. Diesebreitet sich im Nachgeschmack etwas weiter aus. Auch das Malz ist nun stärker zu erschmecken. Mittelstarkes Bier mit angenehmen Gewürznoten, dabei nicht wirklich Alkoholstark - nett. Test vom 3.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,11,11,12,10,11

imdownthepub (13228) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2011
Bottled, 330ml from Marche de Natalie, Bouillon, Belgium. Clouded pale orange with white head. Not quite what I expected, this is a sweetish, candy like, yeasty beer, thin on the palate and with little substance. Maybe a hint of herb, little in the way of hops. Not terribly good.

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2010
250 mL bottle at the Esplanade Biermarkt. Didn’t have it with mussels. I don’t even like mussels. Amber-orange with a head that means well, but doesn’t have the legs to finish the race. Nice lacing, though. The aroma is kinda sweet; not much else. Tastes kinda like a sweetened pilsner. Maybe a little oxidized. Maybe mussels would make this taste better.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2010
[2804-20100313] Bottle. Not much aroma, just light floral notes. Slightly hazy, amber brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Mild sour apple skin flavour with a long semi-sweet finish. Medium body. Not sure if this is right, it’s not off (surprisingly) but it is weird.

bhensonb (14079) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Bottle. bb 05/07/09. Pours light amber with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, cooked, caramel. Near medium body with rather frothy carbonation. Flavor is cooked caramel, but not sickeningly sweet. Hop is minimal. It’s drinkable.

DerWeg (1593) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2009
Wish I tasted this with a fresher palate, but getting light caramel and pretty pale fruit, lemony notes. Off-clear apricot color with only light foam, and fairly still fine carbonation. Nose is peachy, lightly sweet with perfumey fruit. Charming ’small’ beer and the aroma is worth the try.
