KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 750ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy dark amber with a large (2-3 finger) off-white creamy head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. The aroma was of straw malts, citrus hops and an earthy Belgian yeast with notes of banana, caramel, coriander and dark fruit (raisons and prunes). The taste was lightly bitter with a hint of fruit and spices in the beginning with the finish being a tad bitter with a slight sweet malty flavor and a touch of caramel, maybe honey and very light citrus peel bitterness at the end. Flavor lasted an average time with a lightly sweet fruitiness pretty much left to lying on the taste buds after all else faded away. Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall I thought this beer was exquisitely tasty and quite well balanced, but everything this brewer puts out seems to be that way... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

A spicy yeast aroma. The body is a hazy golden amber. The head is overwhelming and takes awhile simmer down. Pleasantly tart and bready. A mild sweetness leads to a finish on the dry side.

TET (3086) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2017
An orange-brown beer with a quite big and blond head. Aroma has generic fruitness from belgian yeast, spicyness, earthy sourness, hint of caramel malts. Taste has fruitness, strong spicyness, some caramel. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation. Balanced and tasteful.

Bottle at home. A metallic and a bit sharp and tart taste takes over this beer. Also some caramel, white bread and herbs.

ciocanelu (2600) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 30, 2017
Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma is mostly yeast forward with some brown sugar and earthy hops. Taste follows. Yeasty and sugary, not sweet though, a bit of earthy hop bitterness on the finish. Light body, dry and well carbonated. Overall it’s a good belgian ale but it doesn’t stand out with anything.
