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.

Bottled. Clear golden colour, not much head. Maltish nose with hoppy hints. Fruitish malty flavour with ryebreadish notes. Sticky palate. Not that special.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2004
Cloudy medium-amber w/ a finger of slightly fizzy, light tan foam. Sweet bready, yeasty aroma w/ a dry, lemony fruitiness. Light, juicy feel. Flavour is sweet, salty, & slightly acidic.

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Bottle. Pours a nice amber brown body, with a huge off white head that fills the glass quickly. Sweet molasses like maltiness in the aroma, touch of yeasty spiciness. Hint of caramel? Flavour pleasantly makes me think of a bittered slightly sour molasses. Not sure why this is such a strong connection for me but thats the best i can describe it as. Oddly well balanced and drinkable. Very pleasant palate. Interesting beer.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Sweet, and sour, no Rodenbach grand cru but drunkable. Like a sour brown, and probably should be listed as ’Flemish sour ale’.

GregClow (3187) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2004
Cloudy amber colour with a moderate snow white head. Nose is sweet, malty and spicey with a yeasty backbone. Lively body with a refreshing fizziness. Flavour has some citrus and coriander notes, some nice yeastiness, and a dry hoppy finish. As suggested, I had it along with a lunch of mussels and frites, and it was a suitable match.

Sammy (11177) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
sweet malty white sugar Belgian. Cloudy muddy orange and Soapy cream head. Drinkable but not an Ommegang. SOme yeast in aroma to remind you of the style. Subtle dryness. Yes, would be good with salty smokey fish.

Ungstrup (34334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
A dark amber beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with notes of coriander, and sour lemon befor a dry hoppy end sets in.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Pours a foamy head on a light amber colored body. Malty and grassy aroma with spices in the background. Very sour and citrusy flavor. Tastes old.

Crockett (1089) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2004
Pours a muddy brown tiny head. Sweet hoppy fruit aroma with mild spice. Flavours carry plenty of sweet cider and vinegar. Lots of citrus tart, pink peppercorns. I suppose it would go well with mussels and frites. Not fantastic but I like sour beers. I agree that it should accompany food.

skortila (5276) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2004
Sweet malty aroma with sugarcane. Clear, amber coloured with a nice lasting white head. Taste is hoppy, sweet just a little bitterness and sugar. Quite nice brew.
