Hazy amber color with a bit of sediments in the bottom, a bit hazy. Thick and abundant head with medium duration.
Predominant aroma of toasted malts. Good carbonation and light body.
Spicy and citric (orange peel) initial bite. Malty and condimented taste with a mild sweet and dry finish.
The 6.5% ABV is well hidden. Fits the style.

33cl Brown bottle, brewed at the Ourdaller Brauerei in Heinerscheid, which has something to do with Simon!

This beer was best before 9th May 2011, it was reviewed on 28th Jan 2011 during my random weird beer tasting evening.

Poured into a Duvel glass, it produced no head, just a wispy half covering and a weak collar. The beer was a murky, dull, dirty orangey brown colour. To be fair I did allow the sediment to leave the bottle and enter my glass.

The smell was strange, fresh fruity, yet with a stale feel, hops and malts in there somewhere, but not blending too well. In short, the beer gave off a 'I'm not ready to be opened yet, the cabbage hasn't cooked' sort of aroma.

Sadly the taste followed the smells too much and I struggled to enjoy the experience. It just didn't add up to a good brew, lacking flavours, body and a purpose. If I was to pick a flavour it would be old boiled vegetable water with alcohol added. Brewed with Buckwheat apparently, didn't help it one bit!

The worst beer by far of my tasting evening.
