Brisbane (24) - SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy, honey colored. As said below it is
not a true Belgian ale, but should it be? Afterall, it's Swedish! and Swedes are not renowned
for great beer. Something about this beer seems rustic; I imagine this is like beer one ordered
at inns in the middle ages. This is not a great beer, but it has an interesting, sweet flavor
and is kind of dry, but not husky. If I compare this to other beers in it's price
class--that is $3 per liter--it has no competition. This beer is great for summer evenings or nights and taking it easy...not
exactly brewed for winter binges. Citrus and caramel. Great because it's not pastuerized
which leaves the enzymes in tact and it's not filtered. Amazing! Now only if it were brewed of
certified organic hops. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2003
