- Alcoholpercentage van 6,5% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skinnyviking (9243) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle at home. High flyffy lasting white head. Clear yellow golden body. Slightly sour lemon malt aroma. Dry malt straw grass flavor with a nice hops bitterness. High carbonation and a long dry and bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden.

Alengrin (5006) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Original Hofbrouwerijke version of the second beer by ’t Nest. Rocky, firm, yellowish white head, hazy peach blonde colour. Aroma of peach, melon, grapefruit, orange pee, honey, lavender and lots of grassy and leafy hops. Dry fruity taste of unripe peach, strong carbonation, touch of orange, soft honeyish malts, followed by a very assertive, almost ’green’, resinous and peppery hop bitterness not far removed from an IPA. Intended as a summer session ale, but seems a bit more ambitious than just that.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of grass, lemons and oranges. The flavor is similar with lemon notes coming through up front, as well as well as some biscuit malt, wheat and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

fiulijn (20046) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Hazy blond color; big compact head. Nice spicy aroma, deep, with more cereals character than wheat, compared to the version at Scheldebrouwerij. Smooth and hightly carbonated beer, some malt, cereals flavor, with light residual sweetness, more than the Scheldebrouwerij.
Quite good.

ryecatcher (1404) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold, nice white with good head retention and decent lacing. Nose is yeasty and some light malt, hops. Mouth is medium, spicy and fruity, Belgian yeast. Lingering bitter finish. Decent.

erickok (5754) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2012
Very clean golden copper body and fine, medium sized whit head. Nice rich aroma, combining a fruit Belgian yeast with lots of nice fresh European hops. Cake, herbal, leaves and mango. A nice juicy mouth feel with not too much carbonation. Light bitterness but the sweetness is very present to back it up, so my no means an ’American’ bitterness. Very pleasant to drink and well made beer. Lots of flavour. I like it. (33cl bottle)

Swaroga (2176) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 24, 2012
33cl bottle. Filtered, clear golden and brown, medium white head. Nose : Striking lemon zest notes, soap, fruity mango, peach, mellow cake, some honey. Sip : medium carbonation, low to medium density body with creamy texture. Sweet burned malt flavor with more burned bitter end, fruity candy background and some more bitterness in the end, this time it mixes with hops (grapefruit flavor). Very surprising beer. Nice one.

kraddel (7295) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2012
drank at home in a 33 cl bottle. the label says blond and bitter. welm the colour is blond, and the bitterness is definetly there, but there’s also sweetness .. its a nice brew, nothing waaw, but better than the average. there was no bottle- or good-until-the-end-of-date , but i had my bottle a year so i thought it would be fine. poured it in until i saw shiftings, than stopped, let it rest for a couple of minutes and tasted. a little while after i got sick . not sure id it was due to the beer or somethinbg else, but that will definatly keep me from drinking another ( and if i would i wouldnt let it rest a month ! ) so if you have one, or want to have one, have it before it gets bad... overall it wasnt a bad beer, buit just a bad experience :p
