COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
A very attractive alternative to the classic Pils. The Yersekeís 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.

Any first impressions?
-A sturdy sheet of foam covers the transparent auburn.
-Toasted malts form a simple aroma.
-The sweet, juicy fruitiness of peaches, raisins, and cantaloups are ably paired with the bready, toasted malts.
-The comfortable effervescence renders drinkability, as the healthy maltiness is never too thin.

What if you dig deeper?
-It finishes very smoothly, a careful fading of the aforementioned maltiness.
-The hop bitterness mentioned in the commercial description doesnít even reach the realm of afterthoughts.
-The fruitiness might have been helped by coriander here, but it isnít obvious.
-This is a very humble, well-brewed Belgian amber ale, for which there is nothing much to say; I have no idea why this is such a small bottle though (25cl.)

Bottle; best before 04/04/2007.

Amber color, with a beige head, but falling quickly, the nose is one of sweet earthy grainy toasted malt, with a caramel note, and a peaty bog accent, and a fruity raisiny aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet fruity malty character, with a raisiny, peatyish note, caramel and toffeeish accents, leading towards a malty fruity finish.

Caramel and honey notes to the lightly salty and fruity aroma. Clear, deep, amber-copper coloured body is topped by a decent, large bubbled, off white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some very nice lacing. Round caramel flavour is fairly short lived with a sweetness that lingers on the tongue. Thereís a light touch of toastiness followed by doughy yeast and banana fruitiness with a light bitterness. Medium body with soft texture and moderate carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BiŤropholie, Sep-06).

Iíll thrink this on terras at Yerseke self. Amber colour, yellow head, over clear caramel-coloured beer. Sweet nose, honey ?, malty. Sweet taste. Medium body. Not bad, whatever, itís drinkable but not a great beer.

Small, but thick yellow head, over clear caramel-coloured beer. Very sweet-caramelly nose, (over)ripe bananas, honey, malty. Taste is less sweet than the nose. Still some caramel in it. Malty taste, bit dull, not much going on. Toasted finish. Medium bodied, bit burnt feeling, very timid all the same. Oh well. Whatever, if no real cider or lambic available - Iíll have a Chablis with the mussels, please.
Whatís the difference with the Bruegel Amber, exactly?

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Thanks to Hopdog for this rare beer. Sampled at Hopdogs basement bar. Pours a deep gold, slight haze (bottom of the bottle?) with a thin head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is of sweet bready malt with light caramel, very slight herbal hops, and a spicy phenols. Slightly stale malt taste, lightly bready, and borderline astringent. Tasted a bit old. Something unique about this beer that I couldnt put my finger on. Decent.

250ml bottle. Poured a medium and clear orange color wtih a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of yeast, a little musty, and lightly fruity. Tastes of sweet apples, light yeast and I also got a light orange peel in it. Thinner and somewhat watery body.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent orange amber with a small off white head. Aroma of yeast, a bi t musty with some fruitiness. Flavor was a little more fruity also picking up more of the yeast and a little on the thin side.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry at Esplanade Bier Markt. Pours a very cloudy dark amber with a small lasting off-white head. Very carbonated. Slightly salty aroma of sweet malt, white wine, fruit and yeast. Flavour of yeast, sweet malt and fruit -- almost like a carbonated fruit drink but slightly salty and with spices. I didnít detect any of the hops the description mentions. Medium bodied. This beer was nothing at all like what I expected it to be, I didnít love it but it was pleasant enough.
