Notes from 28 Aug. 2011: Poured 25cl bottle, labelled best by 17/06/2011 and bought early August, into tulip. Cloudy and old gold, almost bronze color, with a cap of barely bubbled butter cream head. The only downside where big flecks of lees swirling within the champagne-like lines of bubbles that didn't breach the head. Scents of caramel, honey, a bit of wildflower in a grassy field. Surprisingly little taste to it. A bit of past-do offness about the hops, until it warmed and opened a bit, when the hop livened up a bit and it became vaguely Orval-ish. Surprisingly chewy and creamy in the mouth.

Bought at Drankenhandel Geers.

Pours a clear copper colour, a strong nose slightly sharp and definitely spicy. Surprisingly strong for a beer of only 4.8 ABV.
A good deal of hops and according bitterness (without being overpowering) with a slight almost fruity sour touch. Short finish.

I remember having had a very similar beer before. Still it's got a distinct taste, especially for a beer of such low ABV. Good at 5°C/40°F during Summer or 7°C/45°F in colder weather.
