Holmen1 (4909) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2016
Flaske fra Willys importkoffert, og delt med ham på brygga etter kveldens sjøbad: lett uklar lys strågul med tett sum som varer og varer. Pikant aroma og smak av druer, citrus, pepper og litt stall. Delikat drikke. Muligens en smule overkarbonert, men den flatet ut mot slutten.

McSherman (564) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2016
goldgelb, klar mit beständiger weißen Schaumkrone. Geruch: hefig, kräuterig, etwas malzig. Antrunk: sauer, malzig, bitter, grüner Apfel, sehr würzig. Irgendwie bleibt das Bier für mich recht unrund.

Ferris (12936) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2016
Bottle - Sweet yeast and some fruity notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. A sticky sweetness with lots of caramel and light fruit. A touch bready with a long finish.

Shark_Pants (613) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2016
330ml bottle, BB Jul 2017. Brilliant clear gold colour with huge voluminous frothy white head and multitudes of bubble streams. Sweet honey malt aroma, pear, white pepper. The flavour has a big caramel malt sweetness, a little astringency that isn’t completely unwelcome against the sweetness, the pear is also there, along with the spicy phenolics. Medium bodied with lots of carbonation, enhancing the spicy character. Pretty decent Belgian strong.

darbeer75 (562) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Aroma: more cereal than belgian aromas; Appearance: clear, blonde pour with fluffy white head that disappears quickly; Taste: better than aroma; decent belgian flavors with a somewhat cloying aftertaste; Palate: medium body; Overall: acceptable, but not compelling.

Pyobon (1315) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 12, 2016
(Bottle) Poured slightly hazy straw yellow with ridiculously huge loose white head. Nice aroma - citrus, banana, hints of green apple and funk. Palate is way over-carbonated - just a mouthful of roiling froth. Complex unusual taste - some slight sticky sweetness is well balanced by some unusual white wine and green apple tartness. There’s some earthy notes and some bitterness in the finish. An unusual pleasant strong beer spoiled by absurd levels of carbonation.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2016
Slightly hazy dark straw color with a thick and powerful amount of activity. Extra foamy and frothy white 4 finger shiny head, lasting around 20 minutes, with a strong amount of legs. Aromas of white wine, faint floral spices and banana yeast. Flavors of green grapes, fruity citrus, banana yeast, roasted sweet grains, herbal spices like saaz. Fully flavored but quite soft and tender, yet highly alcoholic. Highly malty with a smoky grass feel. Balanced sweetness and bitterness. Smooth slick full body with champagne like carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with a dry lingering clove feel, thick citrus tongue coat, some noble spices, and quite yeasty. Overall very good quality craft. Tasty flavors that are well balanced. Strong yet still pleasant and fresh. Nice mix of hops and malts adding more complexity. A little too vinous and boozy.

guzgorog (722) - FRANCE - SEP 3, 2016
Blonde assez pale et lipide, mousse blanche crémeuse de bonne tenue. Nez levuré (pain et fromage), un peu de terre. Attaque est franche, avec des esthers un peu désagréables, métalliques, l’alcool assez présent, ensuite transpirent un peu le malt et le houblon, mais le goût est finalement assez désagréable. En lisant les autres dégustations, je n’ai pas l’impression de boire la même bière, peut-être un problème sur la bouteille

Creamy with a spicy note to it. Medium bitterness. Nice appearance with nice foam.
