UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 1/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ my parents place - BB: X/2013 (2013-679)

Clear orange beer, big irregular off-white head, unstable, falls down to a small layer of irregular bubbles. Aroma: malty, some orange peel, lots of toast, whole grain bread, bit smelly, something off ("putje"). MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, bitter and hoppy, bit of malts, pretty metallic (foam on hand method: check!), just like the Airborne beer of the same brewery, btw. Also grains, bit of caramel. Aftertaste: some orange peel, bitter hops, little malty, grains, toast, green banana, metallic. Meh, very mediocre.

Benzai (15090) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2012
33cl bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear copper to light amber color, medium to full sized lightly creamy off-white head that lasts for quite a while and leaves good lacing. Smell some malts, a bit soapy and some plums somehow. Taste malts, some flowers, slight sweetness and plums with a light fruitpeel-bitterness. Decent body, medium carbo.

Sorry, cant remember where I got this from: somewhere in Belgium: Euro 2.00 for the 33cl dumpy bottle, best before 10-2013. Yellow label with a wild boar design: I love wild boars. The beer was poured slowly into a Westmalle chalice: no sediment left the bottle, so the beer looked a lovely clear amber, bright beer, a good covering of white bubbles sat on top. The aforementioned bubbles tried to leave some lacing as the beer level dropped. The smells were of yeast, grainy hops and eastern spices but it didnt excite me at all. I thought this a little bland for a 7% ABV Belgian Ale, pale or not: the flavours seemed distant and weak, very citrus dry (pink grapefruit)in the mouthfeel and how the alcohol content is hidden so well escapes me. I might be missing something here, but for me this failed to deliver.

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2012
Towering, just yellowish-tinted head, fed by lively carbonated pale metallic-amber beer. Sweet caramelly nose, maltsyrup, parsley or other green herbs. Pinch of fresh malts in the background. Again caramel, diluted, and dried herbs. Seems to carry a bit of alcoholsweetness, strange, as it isnt very strong. Wet cardboard in the finish. Sticky, medium bodied. Oh dear...

(bottle) pours a clear ruby-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of caramel and burnt toffee, slightly oxidised, with notes of marzipan, herbal hops and melted butter. flavour is mostly the same, caramel, herbal hops and butter, with a slightly redeeming bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, amber colour with a big and rocky off-white foamy head. Yeasty and wheaty, slightly cara-malty aroma with light citrus-fruity notes and herbal spicy hops. Bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a lively carbonation. Yeasty, wheaty and rather restrained citrus-fruity taste with a tinge of cara-malt and strong spicy notes, resulting in a bitter and yeasty tart finish with shy notes of citrus. 29.III.10

Light hazy blond coloured beer with yeast parts. Average carbonation and a small white head. Light yeasty and herby hinted aroma. Full palate. FInish is light bitter herby with a short bitter fruity yeasty hinted touch.
