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.

A bartender recommendation while waiting for the Last Post at the Menin Gate. Sort of hoppy and yeasty with a bitter hops finish. Not bad.

MiP (15170) - 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.

33cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, full sized, good lacing, white head. Smell lightly malts, fruityness, maybe even a light touch of hops. Taste lightly malts, again fruityness and lightly a hint of hops, some sweetness. Decent carbonation and body.

JorisPPattyn (9249) - 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.

tderoeck (7877) - 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.
