I tried this twice as I thought I got a bad bottle the forst time... But sigh, even though this IS a very beautiful pour with an astonishing head, it’s just a really, really crappy "Belgian". The aroma was unbearable sour yeast and reminded me of old socks from a gymbag more than anything. The palate ranges from halfbaked dough and some raisins to rusted metal. One could disguise the badder things with some spicy food, but on it’s own it just falls flat.
Aroma: Nuts and sweet fruits with yeast.
Flavour: Sweet with fruits and berries and nutty notes. Aftertaste is fruity and slightly bitter.
Colour: red brown with an offwhite head.

Backlog, påskefrokost i Skjern. Bottle. Pours red brown with tiny head. Weak aroma, some sweet malts, not very belgish. Taste is weak as well. Tastes more like a standard commercial than classic belgian ale. Palate is light. remALUS (335) - Kaunas, LITHUANIA - OCT 13, 2016

Sweetish malty aroma, some nice barley aspects, some oddness, hint of peanut. Surprisingly light palate for a 7% beer, and I’m not getting the alcohol either. However, this is extremely raw and underattenuated. Flat palate. Nutty and sweet. What a freaking mess. However, clearly the best ever beer from these fuckers, quite a trainwreck of a brewery. I’m charitably giving this an extra point for covering the alcohol, but it’s so raw, I don’t actually believe it’s 7% in the first place. Mess. Makes me sad.
500ml bottle (shop/bar in Kaunas). Clear brown chestnut color. Small size, yellowish head, stays as a ring. Sourish, nutty, husky, raisins, grainy in aroma. Sourish, caramel, old bar of candy, husky, grainy and some vomit in taste. Old caramel candy in aftertaste. Sourish and sweet too. Wouldn’t say it’s 7%. At least it doesn’t taste like one. Slightly messy brew. Bolian (183) - - AUG 6, 2016
Pours chestnut clear, white-beige foam good retention. Nose is yeasty and is more reminiscent of a lager than ale. Scent of malt / bread follows along. Taste is on the thin side with notes of roasted grain, bread, toffee. I would expect the characteristic Belgian fruity yeast esters, but these are not present at all. The beer Is more like a British mild or bitter. Not a bad beer but quite out of style specs. nybol (1765) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2016
Den typiske smag af Belgien. Tja... ikke så meget mere at sige om den billige øl. metalspice (933) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2016
Rødbrun med fint, off-white skum. Lukter litt sur frukt, sammen med karamell og høy. Karamell og høy følger i smaken sammen med brent sukker, plommer og lett bondegård. Perlende bitterhet i avslutningen.
