Orange with a clear white top. Reminds of Orval but lacks the punch. Smells of citrus fruits. Hops, a bit of citrus but the watery finish disappoints. Read metallic in another review and I can confirm...

RudiGR (86) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2017
Gekocht op zondag 5-2-2017 in de Struise Beershop aan de Burg in Brugge tijdens het 10é Bruggse Bierfestival. En geproefd op 12-10-2017. Mystere is een licht-amber bier dat bij het uitschenken een normale hoeveelheid creme-kleurig schuim produceert met een gelijkmatige struktuur. Het blijft sterk aan de glaswand kleven. Na een tijdje is het in elkaar gezakt tot een gelijkmatige laag van ongeveer 5 mm dikte. Middelmatige CO2 verzadiging met belletjes van een gemiddelde grootte. Het aroma van Mystere is fruitig zoet, hopbitter en wat citrus. De smaak is ook hop-bitterig. In de mond toont Mystere een volle body met een bitterdroogje en een ietwat olieachtige textuur, medium prikkelend. Een harmonieus biertje. De nasmaak vloeit lang uit en is licht hop-bitterig en lichtjes droog. Een toch niet zo sterk bittere IPA of Saison en toch zwaar gehopt in de smaak en in de nasmaak. Een verassend biertje met een deftige body, lekker. Foto's: http://www.beersfrombelgium.eu/nl/Mystere-b-4233.h

Hopverdju (1427) - BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2017
Amberkleurig bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Geur: geroosterde mout, licht hoppig, kruidig. Smaak: lichtjes metaal, bitter, licht zoet, karamel, sinaasappel. Medium volmondig. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: wat metaal, licht bitter. IPA? Komaan zeg.

laiti (8507) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Draught @ Cafe Rose Red. Aroma has sweet fruitiness and grassy hops. Promising, smells like De Ranke Harvest or Hommelbier. Flavour has hops, grass, fruity notes and some biscuits. Good, but not excellent. Flavour is filled with menthol-like hoppiness.

kraddel (8731) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2016
savoured at Bab 2016, thnx for sharing, everyone ! Pours amberbrown, ok white head. Smell is sweet, thcik, caramelly malts. Taste is bitter, dry, sharp, slightly metallic. Creamy malts in the back.

Alengrin (5629) - BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2016 Big (75 cl) bottle bought at Rotsaert. Bottle opens with a bang, but no significant gushing. Very thick and frothy, rocky, thickly lacing, egg-white head on top of a hazy amberish orange blonde beer. Saison- but also lightstruck-like aroma of fermenting grass, ammonia, burnt rubber (DMTS), wet leather, green banana, wet dog, dried apricot, biscuit. Crisp, fruity onset, unripe stonefruit, touch of pineapple with a sourish hint, softish carbo, toasted malt bitterishness, bit nutty, gentle grassy hop bitterishness in the end, drying and yielding some retronasal flower aromas along with floral accents. Quite alright, unfortunately skunked, but whatever this is supposed to be, it is way closer to saison than to IPA...

06/02/2016 – sample @ BAB shared with tderoeck, 77ships and kradel. Amber coloured with good white head. Nose is fruity, malty. Taste a bit same but overpowered by dyacetyl

bartlebier (4117) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2016
75cl bottle and/or tap pour at BBF 2016, Festival Bier. - ZA. Virtually no nose besides yeasty dough, not even fresh one. Tastes like a duller Augustijn Blond with a bit of a grassy hop bite, the yeasty quince bitters, unripe peel - but by no means any of the used aroma hops coming to the fore. Alas another oldschool Belgian where the cartoon characters on the label are more memorable than the generic, implosive yeast bomb inside, exterminating all life and oxygen, coating the tongue in a yeast fur - quite a few beers did that this weekend actually. - Not the best starter/welcomer for a 21th century festival. - The real mystère: From Namibia to Lithuanian Honey Beer, Backdoor Cafe to Brugs Bierfestival, Strubbe can (and will) contract brew anything (cf. Haus der 131 Biere atrocities against international beer culture.). - Maybe at the 500th jubilee of the Reinheitsgebot, Belgium should convert to German Sharia and vice versa German brewers start brewing clean experiments - win, Old Europe, win?

kermis (14478) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
Sampled at Brugge beer festival 2016. Hazy dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of light yeast, light fruits and malt. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

yespr (47037) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2015
75 cl bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is grapefruity hoppy. Lingering fruity. Crisp. Bitter, fruity and crisp hoppy. Dry and bitter far finish.

From tap @ Brugs Bierfestival (01.02.2014) Almost clear darkgolden to copper color, with creamy off-white head. Aroma: some sweet, hops, yeast, fruits (mango ?). Medium body. Taste: fruits, yeast notes, nice hops, bitterness. Good.
