En lettere frugtagtig l, med en svag sprittet smag. Jeg troede frst den var grumset, men efter at ha rystet flasken let, var llen bare uklar. Jeg havde ikke de store forventninger til en l i lerflaske, men jeg kber helt sikkert en hvis jeg ser den igen.

huineman (670) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 28, 2016
7,6% alc. 50 cl bottle bought at Alcampo, served in La Trappe chalice. Pours copperish amber with huge ivory head. Aroma is orange, iron filings, cookie dough, white flowers. Round, full-bodied, slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Long lasting. Not bad, although it seems too expensive to me (6,30 per half litre). I agree that it comes with a nice bottle one might keep for water, though.

danielyabu (1636) - Unio da Vitria, BRAZIL - FEB 15, 2016
Average frothy creamy white head. Good lacing. Fully diminishing. Dark yellow clear thick body. Aroma: flowers, honey, moderate hoppy, light bread, metal, alcohol. Initial flavor: moderate sweet (fruity and honey) and very light bitter. Final flavor: moderate sweet very light acidic; average duration. Palate: metallic light astringent finish, lively carbonation, watery/oily texture, light medium body. Slight acidic presence balances sweetness, which reminds of orange. Fits well in the style. Well hidden alcohol. 120s usd15

kraddel (7715) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2015
75cl bottle, labeled as grand cru. Pours unclear warm blonde. Small white head. Smell is sweet ( somewhat spiced sugary sweetness ) Taste is sharp, bit bitter. Definate sweet undertone ( Sugar, mild spices ) yeasty towards the end. Agressive carbonation that really triggers the bitterness. Somewhat malty underneath the other aspects. OK

Marduk (7504) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 15, 2015
500ml ceramic flip-top bottle with cap as "St. Sebastiaan Grand Cru". Yes I know, bizarre. Clear bright golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Fruity, sweet, perfume, malty in aroma. Smells nice. Malty, very fruity, sweet, bit of wild strawberries, perfume in taste. Sweet malts and fruity in aftertaste. Nice and crisp.

FatPhil (15827) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2015
500ml ceramic bottle (Beer Express, Tallinn)
Super fruity aroma, tons of esters. Alas just a hint of tomato once or twice. Pale orange, small head. Lovely perfumey belgian ale taste, pale malts, pleasant herbal light hops. Quite simple, but very pleasant belgian.
