Jur (397) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle@Stadsbrouwerij, Tongeren BE. Looking in the menu for something hoppy. Ypra looks good on paper and it doesn’t disappoint. It pours hazy and has a rich nose of dried fruit and spices. Taste follows this with a nice, slightly malty, bitter. Pleasant surprise.

heavy (2195) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 22, 2011
06/05 0.33 l bottle courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! It poured hazy golden body with medium sized head. Fine biscuit malty aroma, somewhat spicy. Weaker flavor, generally sweet, malty, simple, thin and pretty much boring for what it is. It had nice, long and pleasant aftertaste though. An easy Belgian ale to drink anyhow.

ogivlado (6012) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 18, 2011
Botted 330ml. -as Ypra Vermeulen. Courtesy of Marko (thanks!), shared with heavy and him.
Cloudy yellow/golden coloured, medium sized white head, malty and light spicy nose. Moderate malty, a bit overriped fruits and some spices with yeasty alcoholic notes. Sweetish finish.

Marko (4096) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 11, 2011
0.33l bottle purchased in Ieper. Poured an ochre-gold body with a thick white medium sized head. Distinct peachy fresh malty nose. Sweetish malty fruity taste, light and nice! DIdn’t elaborate more on that, but I reckon I liked it more than ogivlado and heavy (whom I’ve shared this with) did.

tderoeck (5290) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2010
Pours a dark yellow to orange beer. Solid and creamy white head. Smells very spicy, cinamon, cloves and fruity. Almost like sweet ripe fruit. A pretty flat mouthfeeling. Tastes mainly sweet from the alcohol. Slightly roasted malts in the aftertaste, a little like coffeebitter, which is quite surprising for this blonde beer. Looks more like a gimmick beer for the city of Ypres than a real beer.
