A very attractive alternative to the classic Pils. The Yersekes Mosselbier offers more color and more taste. First you taste the bitterness of the hops, immediately followed by a light sweetness of the roasted malt. The dark amber color in a special flute glass is an enrichment for the table.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2006
Bottle (330ml). At Bier Market, shared with blankboy and tupalev. Mussels? - seemed like a run-of-the-mill Belgian, but after the crap wed been drinking before-hand this was like ambrosia. Poured a murky brown with a lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma of salty apple crumble with tons of yeast - more like a dessert than a beer, but appealing. Tasted of the ocean, dominated by sweet fresh apple cider, tangy white wine, caramel malt and brown sugary, again plenty of yeast, but overriding it all hints of seasalt, tar and hessian. Mouthfeel quite lively, slightly acidic, salty - overall a nice, slightly fishy apple and yeast concoction. Nice. Unexpected.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Its an attractive looking ale, a clear, deep amber body with a fizzy white head that unfortunately turns into a slender ring all too soon. it smells of light malts, toffee-ish, and a bit of dust. The flavor is pretty much all malt, the flaunted hops of the description making no real appearance. It finishes on a weird, salty note. Strange.

leaparsons (10451) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle. Still, brown and dull. Aromas are very sweet and malty and not much else. Flavours are equally sweet with Ovaltine malts. Very one-dimensional.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2005
(Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with a small, fading head. Slightly salty and roasty aroma of caramel and toffee. Feels a bit whiskey-malty. Roasty-toffee-rye-malty flavor with some initial bitterness, but quickly fading finish. Light to medium-bodied, fizzy-carbonated palate. Like a mix of vienna, mrzen and a hint of salty stout. Not bad, but quickly forgotten.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
Ended the night with this interesting beer. Weird hazy light brown colour. Aroma of the sea. Thats right, I passed the tulip glass around the table and everyone agreed that it had this odd sea like quality to it - musty, with hints of tomato in it as well. Very carbonated mouthfeel, light and tingly. Light malt taste, not near what the odd aroma suggests. yeasty. Ok overall but quite interesting and got the table of geeks and non-beer geeks alike talking.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2005
hmmm...i think this is a bland beer, not much aromas and taste. aroma:caramel, molasse and a bit fruity. tastes malty and indeed buttery. thin body. unbalanced. not so good.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2005
Clear amber colour, fizzy with a slim white head. Sweet, fruity, buttery and malty aroma. Interesting taste, buttery, malty, some chocolate. Quite dry with some hops in the finish. Medium mothfeel. Not bad at all.

Copper brown, not much head. Strange aroma for a Belgium - rye, barley with some sweetness and ashy notes. Ryeish, malty flavor. Really Mrzen-like!

madsberg (11758) - Sborg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2005
Bottled @ Den Tatoverede Enke, Cbh. together with some "Moulles": Amber coloured. Clear. Light brown dense head. Light sour, buttery and light fruity aroma. Flavour is light watery, buttery and malty, with some chocolate notes. Ends on a light sour fruity note. A little over avarage belgian ale.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) My sample at 4,5% ABV. Dark golden with a fairly large head. Rather light in body with a dry hoppiness. Quenching if not overly exciting beer. 300695
