EithCubes (4944) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle ten minste houbaar tot 10.04.14. Nose is very, very sweet sugar and yeast, mild lemon, orange peel, and vague fruit. Golden body with a rocky, creamy white head. Taste starts sweet and does dry a bit, Pilsner malt with deft bitterness and Belgian yeast. Medium-full body, harsh feel at first, really heavy carbonation, and cold booze warming (it’s not hot, just sort of ... raw). Basic blonde.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle from Bier Tempel. Hazy orange body with medium head. Nose is spicy and a tad sour. Taste is fruity and spicy with prickly nice texture. Enjoyable but nothing special.

JorisPPattyn (7940) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2012
Small to medium off-white head, fast receding over big-bubbled copperish-golden beer. Caramelly, malty, probably candi sugar. Bit of garden weeds/grassy. Faint acidity; bitterness behind partly burnt caramel, maybe partly hops - but the overall result is metallic. Like something kept in corrugated barrels, some old wood. Retronasal flavour as from way overripe peach. Warming up, some faint bready/yeasty notes. Very highly carbonated, to the pont of agressiveness. Light to medium boided, quite slick, but giving somehow a raw alcohol impression. Ho-hum. Affligem can do better, certainly for a celebration beer. Underwhelming.

Golden colour with tan foam. Light sweet and bitter. Malty. Not a lot of hops. Not very good.

psilosophy (493) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUL 31, 2012
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée, mousse abondante de tenue moyenne/faible. Un nez fruit-miel que l’on ne retrouve pas spécialement en bouche, c’est davantage épicé et surtout la délicate amertume du houblon Elle est douce mais a tout de même du caractère! La texture est très carbonnée. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - ploegstaert

1/VI/2012 - 33cl bottle @ d’Oude Brouwerij (Affligem) - BB: 12/III/14 (2012-566)

Clear orange beer, big fizzy off-white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: quite some banana, sweet malts, little grassy, sugary sweetness. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: bit citric in the start, quite a lot of banana, sweet, sugary, little metallic bitterness. Aftertaste: sugar, banana, citric bitter hops, bit grassy, ok bitterness. Quadrupple hopped? Please, don’t lie on the labels, it’s not nice of you...
