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 (6476) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (8570) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2009
Huge, light-yellowish head, fed by well-carbonated metallic yellow to straw-coloured beer. Bit milky, veggie aroma, slightly sickly, vanillated coffee milk. Same strange lactic flavour, spiced, starting with a bitter streak, then turning more sweet - lactose? Also, again some cooked vegetables or cooked corn. Medium bodied, quite slick, spritzy MF. It’s obviously a sought flavour, but I cannot particulary like it.

Ungstrup (30746) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Bottled. A hazy pale golden beer with a lazing cream colored head. The aroma has notes of fruit, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, caramel, and some fruits, leading to a fruity finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

MiP (14488) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle, 7%. Mild fruity aroma. Cloudy yellow colour. Very small, but stable, white head. The flavour is a bit yeasty, has an OK maltiness, a bit sweet. The finish is slightly rough, but in the good way.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2009
(Bottled) Clear golden with a medium, bubbly-foamy head. Aroma is very mild at first, but pretty soon I found sweetish maltiness with a nice fruity twist. Flavor is neutral-malty with some orangey fruitiness, and mild spiciness. Medium body with high and foamy, but smooth carbonation. A smooth and drinkable ale with just enough oomph to keep it interesting.
