Light golden color. Aroma of pilsner malt and yeast. Has a nice herbal flavor, and some bitterness, but not enough to balance the intense sweetness. Flavors of cookies, biscuits, caramel. Was quite clean in the flavor. Well hidden alcohol. Except for the too low bitterness, I didn’t miss the hops. Was good, not great.

BBE 07/05/18. Haalean vaalea lagerin väri, semi-iso tuuhea viipyvä vaahto. Tuoksu hyvin ohut ja vetinen paskalagerin tyyppinen, suutuntuma alkoholisen marjaisan hyökkäävä ja yskityttävä, epämiellyttävä nopea mausteinen polte, mausteisuus jatkuu jälkimakuun, perus viinapommi. Ei jatkoon.

Nothing special but good, juniper bitterness and candy sweet in palate, spirit in disguise

This is not a typical beer. It is a beer like drink and for that its perfect. I can hardly describe it, you have to taste it, espacially because it is made without hop. Its sweet and sour, totally interesting, but not everyones most likely beer. Cant imagine to drink it regularly.

TrefwoordPunk (1326) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear orange with a medium and lasting white head and an aroma of ripe fruits, sweet malts, toffee, bubblegum and candy sugar. The taste is medium sweet with a medium to heavy carbonation and some slight bitterness in the finish

Bontus (807) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle 33cl, Geers. Pours clear yellow/golden with a dense eggwhite head. Similar to Duvel maybe? ;) Nose is dry bodied, biscuit yeast, some alcohol. Slight malt touch. Aroma is soft in malt, fizzy palate, dangerously drinkable. A good beer in the Duvel style. Taste is medium bitter, short finish.

Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2017
(Gruut Inferno) Bottle 330ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 9% Deep golden colour on the body, crystal clear, with a tall and thick white head on top, quite good retention. Aroma of grains, stone fruits, sugars. Taste is sweet with malts and grains, sugars, alcohol, notes of peaches and apricot, I can’t really taste any spices. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side.
